I'm hoping that Southgate and Martinez can get together over a nice glass of wine and make some sort of pact to make the game an entertaining one. Hopefully a 4-3 score-line (really not bothered which way) and hopefully make the final (which could be very negative if France get control over the game) look a bit dull by comparison

England spend the first half chucking the ball in their own net.

Belgium spend the second half doing the same.

Both teams spend extra time defending the 57-57 draw by sitting down and having a nice picnic in the centre circle.

All the penalties are skied over the bar deliberately until the referee gets tired of all their shenanigans and tosses for the winner. The referee is arrested for his obscenity and the match is declared a draw.

This match is a cruel, pointless, absurd abomination and should be treated as such.

Does ANYBODY care if we finish 3rd or 4th?

Of course they do!

The third place play-off is one of the cornerstones of the World Cup. Let's take a moment to reflect on all the classic Bronze Medal matches this tournament has produced.

*a grey, formless void appears. in the distance, a single funeral bell clangs*

See? Absolute belters.

No. I even said that.
Be nice for the likes of Loftus-Cheek, Jones etc to get a decent run out at the world cup.

Has it happened at a World Cup before where the same two reserve teams/countries play two matches that don't matter?

It would be "nice" to finish third but the only thing left to settle on Saturday is the Golden Boot, if Kane is fit enough to play.

I think they should make the game go to penalties and take so long with them that the match is still going when the final is due to start.

It’s a completely stupid game which surely nobody wants.

Won’t be watching this one. A totally meaningless and pointless match which will not be contested between full strength teams.

Definitely be watching as the third place play off match has a great history or producing goals.

Prediction?

Regina's Representative Side 2
Beer Swilling Chocolatiers FC 4

A fun exhibition match. A game to relax to. Enjoy :thumbs:

Still a slight possibility that Kane could be caught for the golden boot - so he'd better play.

Lukaku v Phil Jones and Hazard v Delph..

Got to fancy the Belgiums for this as they seem stronger.

Surely Cahill is a better centre back than Jones.
Lingard and Alli didn't look fit enough in the semi final so drop out.
