Third Place Playoff Game
 
 
What's the point? Surely they should scrap it now? It's just a meaningless friendly between the reserve players from two squads who just want to go home.

Wonder if the Highfield Hotel will still have their big screen up?

Aren't athletes proud to win a bronze medal in the Olympics? Do runners give up when the first two cross the line?

Every team knew there would be a third place play off when they landed in Russia, so get on with it.

Just like the group game then [:D]

Yes a repeat of the group game. Kane may play for the golden boot but other than that the squad players back in.

The players will all be psychologically down for the game and it is a meaningless friendly. When we lost in 1990 we played Italy in Bari for 3/4 and it was the most pointless game Iíve ever seen.

Suspect Kane wonít play if rumours of his injury are true and spurs wonít want him crocked, whereas lukkaku can tie for golden boot with 2 goals or win it with 3, he was 28 to win on the exchange so had a cheeky tenner on it last night, settled as dead heat in event of draw.

Give that it looks like decent weather forecast for Saturday I won't be watching, they really should bin it as a bad idea. I didn't watch the Italia 90 game either (as far as I can remember!).

I have a bedroom to paint at home, so instead of seeing the game, I will literally be watching paint dry.

Pointless game. Should just give both semi-finalists joint 3rd/bronze medals.

Will be enjoying some good weather and a few beers at the beer and music festival where I live (Rocking All Over the Wold).

Britain v an organisation based in Brussels in a meaningless fight where no one will emerge winners and the rest of the world doesn't care?

Football as a metaphor for brexit

3pm on a saturday in the middle of summer ?

Why not play on an evening when more people would watch it FFS.

I'll probably watch it but it does feel pointless. I'd imagine the players will just want to come home and won't be looking forward to it.

I'm sure Southgate will pick players who haven't played in this WC yet. Like Alli [;)]

the thing is with Alli ; he doesnt really play in the same position for england with kane as he does for spurs ; for spurs he is much closer to kane.
I have some sympathy for Alli in that respect.

Pretty pointless, nobody ever remembers or cares about who comes 3rd & 4th.

I'll still watch though, it's a live footy game on Saturday afternoon afterall.

Be nice if England win it, but I couldn't give a toss if they don't.

Itís only really mattered in the past when the hosts were involved; it was a big deal in Germany 06; the Brazil one was interesting too in the aftermath of the 7-1

Belgium must be at an advantage with an extra day and no added time to recover from

On the other hand, Belgium might feel they were more realistic winners of the WC and be less bothered than the young England side.

"nobody ever remembers or cares about who comes 3rd & 4th."

I remember Portugal and the Soviet Union came 3rd & 4th in 1966, score was 2 - 1.

I want to win it big time

momentums everything

two defeats in a row would end this world cpu on a bad note

beating a nation like belgium would give us momentum going into the nations league.

Italy came 3rd in 1990
