Belgium takes third, Betting failed
Since long in the history, there always has been over 2.5 goals in the third place match. I believe most of the us bet on over 2.5 goals @1.57 but England and Lukaku were awful today. England was not even try to score in the first half. There showed some brilliance in second half but it was too late. And here comes our own Lukaku, who is pathetic in big matches. He should have scored with two brilliant opportunity created by de Buryne. We all know he had very bad first touch, but it ruined the goal party today for the third place match. The match ended with 2-0, thus over 2.5 goals betting failed. Hazard and Meunier scored for Belgium. The other bet was BTTS @ 1.5 which was lost again. I hate the fact that Dier goal was save from the line by Alderweireld, which was only chance that was certain to go into the net. There were couple of others, but I should again repeat, England was awful today. Luck was with them that they made this far and got the easy route, and didn't face big team. The only thing to cheer for was Belgium to finish THIRD @ 1.66. Belgium finished third and made a history. It was their best ever finish in the world cup. Lets see how it goes for tomorrow.
Betting: Belgium VS England
Nearly the end of world cup, and here comes the match for the third place between Belgium and England. This is the game between the losers who didn't make it to the final, and as seen from the history, both team will not be interested to play this. We would probably see lots of regular player be benched and substitutes will get outing and world cup experience. I think England have nothing to play for but there is something for Kane. He would want to get that golden boot, and score some goals tomorrow. But for Belgium, they will be playing for history. They will want to get that third position. They finish fourth in 1986, and this is going to be their best finish if they win.They have more reasons to win this match than Belgium. What can I see in tomorrow match is that there is going to be plenty of goals. Recent forms: In past 5 games, Belgium scored in all game expect France, while England scored in all except Belgium. Belgium have scored 11 goals in last 5 games while England have scored 10 goals in last 5. Thus plenty of goals coming from both sides. My Bets:Belgium to finish THIRD @ 1.66Both teams to score @ 1.50Over 2.5 GOALS @1.57
Croatia VS England: betting
The second semifinal is Croatia vs England. Head to Head These 2 sides have met each other in previous 4 occasion, and England had upper hand on it. England have won 4 of them, lost 2 and drew one.

Croatia have scored in each and every matches they played in this world cup. Modric is the main man in the team, and lot will depend on him. England are high on confidence after convincingly defeating Sweden.Recent Form My Bet England to win @2.30England by far is better team as seen from their display against Sweden. I believe England will run out as winner by 90 minutes.
