Are Pochettino's Tottenham tactics hurting Eric Dier's World Cup chances?

Are Pochettino's Tottenham tactics hurting Eric Dier's World Cup chances?

"I think both sides are keen to continue that work at a faster pace than we have done up till now and certainly we would welcome that", she said today.

In a freakish game, England made eight changes and Belgium nine as two B-teams contested first place in Group G, knowing that topping the group placed the victor in a far tougher half of the draw.

"But what that means for the next round, we don't really know".

Gareth Southgate was roughly five minutes into his press conference to preview England's match against Belgium when the news filtered through that Germany - football royalty, as far as the World Cup is concerned - had been dethroned and he was asked for his thoughts about a result that could probably encapsulate what is known as schadenfreude in the country that invented the term.

"But we didn't enter the game in that manner".

'The players who've played tonight have given absolutely everything and never stopped. That would mean we top the group and then we can move forward.

"First of all, we need to focus on our play in the knockout stage", Maguire said.

"We kept pressing until the end".

Government - rebel peace talks break down
She has since accused the government of "serious betrayal" by reneging on the promised compromise . Asked whether he thought more resignations were coming, Mr Lee said: "I honestly don't know".


"We have no idea who, when or where we will play", he said.

At the start of the summit, Belgian Prime Minister Charles Michel gave British counterpart Theresa May a Red Devils shirt before Wednesday night's match between Belgium and England.

As the tournament played out, the bracket proved to grow somewhat unbalanced, resulting in a "side of death" that features four of the top five teams in the Federation Internationale de Football Association rankings - Brazil, Belgium, Portugal, and Argentina - all competing for one spot in the final.

On his team's performance, Southgate added: 'I think it was a pretty even game. "But everyone understands - in the dressing room and in the group - what we're trying to do".

England go into the Thursday's game in Kaliningrad having secured progression to the last-16 with a game to spare, four years after crashing out at the group stage in Brazil.

'Marcus Rashford and Jamie Vardy kept running. Everyone's seen the level that we've been playing at and we've got to keep improving'.

Facing questions over whether he might have preferred to finish second - a draw or defeat would have had that effect - Martinez said: "Honestly, I am delighted".
