England will face Colombia in the last 16 of the World Cup after a spectacular strike by Adnan Januzaj ensured Belgium finished top of Group G. Gareth Southgate made eight changes from England’s win against Panama, while opposite number Roberto Martinez made nine alterations – proving victory was not exactly the top priority as the tournament moves towards the knockout phase.



The 24-year-old striker, who also plays for Chelsea FC in the Premier League, took the ball after Adnan Januzaj put his team on top with Thursday’s deciding score and tried to unleash his own celebratory boot into the back of the net. Things went awry, however, as soon as the ball left The Batsman’s foot, clanging off the post and directly into his own face. If only those giant, white net poles didn’t exist, Batshuayi might’ve been able to celebrate in peace.



England manager Gareth Southgate: “I thought the game was a really good test for us. We knew the level was going to be higher than we’ve had even with teams making changes. Belgium had controlled possession in our back third and we found it tough to press, but in terms of chances, we were fairly even.”

Belgium head coach Roberto Martinez: “We want everyone in Belgium to be very, very proud of this team. Every player is looking forward to being on the pitch and we looking forward to facing anyone in front of us.”
