Belgium and England will meet in the World Cup playoff for third place today (Saturday) with opposing strikers Romelu Lukaku and Harry Kane vying for the tournament’s Golden Boot.

Just as Belgium and England’s dead-rubber game in the group stage carried a sense of unimportance, so third-place playoffs can be sterile affairs, with both teams still coming down from having missed out on a place in the final.

But England’s Kane is favoured to take home the Golden Boot prize for the top scorer in Russia after scoring six goals so far.

Belgium’s Lukaku has four goals, with French pair Antoine Griezmann and Kylian Mbappe, who play in tomorrow night’s final, on three.
