The draw for the 2018 World Cup in Russia was made on December 1. The draw threw up some interesting clashes, including England’s Group G meeting with Belgium.

Is this the “Group of Death”?

Belgium and England will face each other in the last match of the group. What the coaches said?

“I had almost 21 years living in the British game and in England, so it’s a very special draw but as we know it’s the World Cup and it’s about preparation now. We got a challenging group with England, Panama and Tunisia.” – Belgium coach Roberto Martinez

“Through the qualifying campaign, you don’t necessarily think about days like today when all of that hits home. That is the beauty of the World Cup, you watch the previous finals, the big games, the big players and it takes you back to the pureness of football. That’s what things like today are about.”– England  coach GARETH SOUTHGATE
