Belgium vs England
England began their latest round of international fixtures with a friendly against close rivals, the Republic of Ireland.
The Three Lions, unsurprisingly, headed into the clash as heavy favourites, with Ireland’s recent form far from impressive.
And when all was said and done at Wembley, proceedings played out true to form.
The visitors started the tie fairly brightly, but a Harry Maguire header 18 minutes in soon put a damper on Ireland’s hopes of an upset.
Jadon Sancho then made it two 31 minutes in, before a 56th-minute Dominic Calvert-Lewin penalty made sure of a comfortable England win.
England will now turn their attention to more serious matters, with a Nations League clash with Belgium set to take place later today.
The matchup comes a huge one for the Three Lions, as a loss would bring an end to the country’s hopes of topping their NL group.

Kane to break Rooney’s record?
Ahead of his side’s crunch upcoming fixture, Gareth Southgate has this weekend been speaking about Harry Kane.
The Tottenham hitman has stood as one of England’s standout performers for several years now, and acts as Southgate’s main centre-forward.
Kane’s goalscoring record for England, as expected, is pretty impressive – with the 27-year-old having netted 32 in 49 outings for his country.
This tally makes Kane the 6th-highest Three Lions goalscorer of all-time, 21 strikes behind current leader Wayne Rooney.
Southgate, though, has voiced the opinion that his captain could well break Rooney’s record:
“In terms of what is possible, the goalscoring record is the really interesting one because his strike rate for us is phenomenal and he has time on his side to chase Wayne Rooney’s record which would be a remarkable feat.
“I know from his perspective, while the personal achievement is something he is driven towards, it is the team achievement.
“He is so focused on the team having success and he would want to look back over the next few years at the team achieving.”
