"It would have been very different if Harry Kane had not scored in the last minute against Tunisia [England's opening 2-1 win] - then Platt's goal might have been a bit more of a memory for everyone".
"So why we are starting to plot which would be a better venue for our semi-final is beyond me, really".
Interestingly, now England and Belgium are on the same points, goal difference and even goals scored. Both Belgium and England's qualification from the group is done and dusted, but a first or second-placed finish is yet to be confirmed.
Southgate has made it plain that he wants that to be England, but nonetheless he won't be fielding his first XI, with Eric Dier, Gary Cahill, Phil Jones and Trent Alexander-Arnold all expected to make their World Cup bows.

We want to perform well but the priority is not to win.

"In sport and in life you have to keep evolving".
Here's how you can watch the match and more.
Both sides - packed with Premier League talent - have sailed through Group G, winning their two games and are now in the curious situation of weighing up whether they even want to top the section. If that is tied, then the victor will be decided by a coin toss.
