In what is a mouth-watering showdown at Wembley on Sunday evening, England and Belgium will turn their attention back to Nations League duties this weekend.

Bouncing back from their 0-0 stalemate away in Denmark last time out in this year’s tournament, the Three Lions picked up a thumping 3-0 win against British rivals Wales on home soil and are now in the midst of a six-match unbeaten run across all competitions.

On the flip side, while a heavily altered Belgium squad might have had to settle for a 1-1 draw against the Ivory Coast on home soil earlier in the week, the Red Devils have continued on their own stunning unbeaten run that stems all the way back to November 2018.

Picking up a 2-0 win when Belgium saw off England to land a bronze medal finish at the World Cup finals two years ago out in Russia, Sunday’s guests have landed back-to-back victories against the Whites.

You might be interested to know that a similar away victory this weekend can be found priced at 3/2 with Paddy Power.

England’s defence shines again

Putting in what was an eye-catching display in midweek and watching debutant Dominic Calvert-Lewin spearhead a 3-0 win against Wales at Wembley on Thursday night, Gareth Southgate couldn’t have wished for a better response from his squad.

While the Three Lions might have been last seen on Nations League duties playing out a 0-0 draw against Denmark on foreign soil last month, Sunday’s hosts stormed their way to next year’s delayed European Championships in a free-scoring fashion.

Although Southgate will be glad to welcome back the likes of skipper Harry Kane in the capital this weekend, there is no doubt that the former Aston Villa defender will be excited by his side’s continued showings at the back.

Managing to record another clean sheet against the Dragons in midweek, England have now gone six matches on the bounce without picking the ball out of their own net, a run that stems back to October 2019.

You might be interested to know that the Whites can be found priced as high as 5/2 with William Hill to record what would be another shock clean sheet at Wembley on Sunday evening.

Lukaku to lead the charge?

Although a heavily-altered Belgium squad might have had to settle for a 1-1 draw against the Ivory Coast earlier in the week, the Red Devils opened this year’s Nations League in their usual clinical fashion.

Last seen on competitive duties picking up what turned out to be a 5-1 romp against Iceland on home soil, Roberto Martinez’s men stormed their way to EURO 2021 by winning each of their 10 Group I appearances.

Looking to pick up a real scalp this weekend, much like they did against England out in Russia two years ago, Belgium will be calling on attacking MVP Romelu Lukaku to lead their charge on Sunday evening.

Enjoying a career-best campaign with Inter Milan last season, the former Manchester United striker has already bagged three strikes in as many Serie A appearances this year and holds a much-feared record while on international duties.

Recording 12 goals in as many appearances with the Red Devils, you might be interested to know that Lukaku can be found priced at 6/5 with Unibet to extend on that tally this weekend.
