Hot on the heels of their 3-0 victory over Wales, England welcome Belgium to Wembley on Sunday evening for what should be an entertaining Nations League clash.
Jadon Sancho and Tammy Abraham return to the England squad following their banishment to the naughty step, but Ben Chilwell will still be absent due to illness – thankfully not covid though.
Belgium made it 13 matches undefeated with a 1-1 draw against the Ivory Coast in their midweek friendly, and they will welcome back Romelu Lukaku and Eden Hazard to the starting line-up.

Our Top Pick – England to Win & Both Teams to Score – 9/2 at Betfair
England have scored 24 goals in their last five home matches while the Belgians have scored at least once in their last 20 internationals.
With this in mind, we’re expecting both sides to bag at least one goal, with hopefully England to edge it.
Our Extra Pick – Dominic Calvert-Lewin to Score – 43/20 at 888sport
It was a dream England debut for Calvert-Lewin against the Welsh, bagging a goal to make it 10 for the season so far.
The young Evertonian is likely to feature from the start against the Belgians, and at odds that look tastier than a portion of Belgian Frites, he’s well worth a bet to keep his scoring run going.
Our Long Shot – England to Win 2-1 – 9/1 at bet365
England have put Spain and Croatia to the sword in this competition, and we reckon they should have enough class to see off the Belgians here.
A 2-1 correct score shout looks a definite possibility and one we’re willing to take a chance on.
