Gareth Southgate: ‘Let Germany defeat be a warning for England’

The England manager's first reaction was to express his considerable surprise and if, deep down, there was a measure of excitement about the World Cup losing one of the teams that historically leave England with an inferiority complex, he suppressed it well. There's a lot of sensations in both camps and both nations going into the knock-out phase. "Hopefully I can just continue and take it into Thursday's game".

"I don't think changing the goalkeeper is an option", explained Martinez.

The two sides have qualified from Group G with a game to spare, and both Roberto Martinez and Southgate indicated they could rotate heavily in order to protect players carrying injuries or at risk of suspension.

"We have no idea who, when or where we will play in the next round, but we are pleased we are in it".

Reports have suggested that Kevin de Bruyne, Thomas Meunier and Jan Vertonghen will all be rested as well for the game having picked up yellow cards in their opening two games.

Harry Kane's hat trick spurred England to a 6-1 victory over Panama, securing the Three Lions' place in the round of 16.

Harry Kane has said he is keen to get the chance to continue his prolific scoring form when England take on Belgium in Kaliningrad on Thursday with Gareth Southgate considering his team selection.

"Indirectly, they've had a big bearing on what we're doing now, but in sport and in life you have to keep evolving". "I don't think he will be training today and we will make a final assessment tonight. I'm looking forward to seeing us play again".

"I wanted it to go well for Roy, and I wanted it to go well for Sam".

The only issue at stake for England against Belgium is whether they finish first or second in Group G. Finishing as runners-up arguably opens up a clearer path to the final - missing France/Argentina and Portugal - but with England now ahead of the Belgians on goal difference, Southgate insists his players will simply go out and try to win the game.

"You're not going to see a team sitting back and allowing the opposition to play".
