World Cup 2018 continues today as Belgium take on Tunisia in a Group G clash from Spartak Stadium in Moscow.
Roberto Martinez’s side flattered to deceive in the first half of their opener against Panama on Monday, but turned on the style after half-time and eventually emerged 3-0 winners, with Manchester United striker Romelu Lukaku scoring two of the goals.
Tunisia held England for much of their encounter in Volgograd, but Harry Kane’s injury-time header snatched all three points for the Three Lions.
Tunisia will be aiming to improve their record in the group stages in today’s match, after previously drawing one fixture and losing two in each of their last three appearances at the tournament.
Before this year’s World Cup the African side had only ever won one game at the finals, when they beat Mexico 3-1 at Argentina 1978.
Belgium on the other hand won four out of their five matches at the 2014 World Cup, finishing top of their group with three wins out of three.
They eventually lost 1-0 to Argentina in the quarter-finals, thanks to an eighth-minute goal from Gonzalo Higuain.
This will be only the fourth meeting between the two teams, with both sides winning a fixture and drawing on the other occasion.
Coverage starts at 12.15pm on BBC One and BBC One HD with live streaming via the BBC iPlayer. Kick-off 1.00pm.
Match commentary comes from Steve Bower and Phil Neville.
