Well Belgium could put out their second string and beat us. Going on past world cups any team v us would make it tough. Can see us struggling to beat Tunisia (maybe draw), lose to Belgium and having to beat Panama to qualify second.

Very young team in 2012 that had a friendly with England and lost narrowly 1-0 have come a long way since then. I dont think losing to Argentina in the quarter finals of a World Cup for that young team was half bad. Nor losing to Italy like they did at the euros. We do that all thr time on the major stage. Wales result at Euros was their Iceland moment. Shit happens. They havent lost a game since then , were first team to qualify of all the European teams and set a new record (alongside Germany) of 43 goals scored during a qualifying campaign.
Being half Belgian I've watched most of their games and it has been for the most part much more enjoyable than anything England can and have produced since our Euro exits.
Having said that I of course want England to win first and foremost. Belgium can come second.
I've put money on Germany again, just such a solid team on the world stage. Agree with above about Belgium, team of superb individuals but not sure on them as a team. Could be their year though, both Hazards are there after all
