World Cup gamethread: Belgium vs England for third place

New, comments

It is the game that no one wants to play in: for third-place honors rather than the final. But two of the best teams of the tournament will do their best to travel home with one more victory.

Belgium vs England

Most people may have expected these two teams to meet in the final rather than in the third-place match, but after Belgium’s golden generation fell to France, and the English lions were silenced by indefatigable Croatia, soccer fans have one more potentially scintillating match to enjoy before the World Cup concludes on Sunday.

Location: Saint Petersburg Stadium, St. Petersburg, Russia

Time: 6:00 pm local time, 10:00 am EST

TV/streaming: Telemundo Deportes En Vivo / Your Country

  1. If you’re a new member, feel free to introduce yourself. We’re mostly very friendly. Also, we’re from all parts of the world, so don’t feel shy if you’re from a country that doesn’t seem represented on the blog.
  2. Refresh the page regularly to keep up with the discussion. One refresh every 55-60 seconds is ideal but if that’s too much then just try for one every five minutes and after every goal.
  3. The goal celebrations are for everyone to participate in. Even if you’re lagging behind the others, keep replying to the most recent call of the player’s name. Even if you missed the first call, just start from the second, and so on.
  4. While swearing is allowed within reason, please be polite to your fellow posters and avoid gratuitous obscenities.
