    England/Belgium Both Teams to Score -192

    I was looking at previous championships and third places matches in world cup history and noticed that the championships tend to end in low scoring draws and the third places matches tend to be high scoring. I am no soccer expert but I imagine thats because players dont try too hard in the third place match. That being said, a quick history of the third place match:

    2014: Netherlands 3-0 Brazil
    2010: Uruguay 2-3 Germany
    2006: Germany 3-1 Portugal
    2002: South Korea 2-3 Turkey
    1998: Holland 1-2 Croatia
    1994: Sweden 4-0 Bulgaria
    1990: Italy 2-1 England
    1986: Belgium 2-4 France
    1982 - Poland 3-2 France
    1978 - Brazil 2-1 Italy
    1974 - Brazil 0-1 Poland
    1970 - Uruguay 0-1 Germany
    1966 - Portugal 2-1 Soviet Union
    1962 - Chile 1-0 Yugoslavia
    1958 - West Germany 3-6 France
    1954 - Uruguay 1-3 Austria
    1938 - Sweden 2-4 Brazil
    1934 - Germany 3-2 Austria

    Interesting to note, English Striker Harry Kane has 6 goals and Belgium Striker Romelu Lukaku has 4 goals, putting them at the top of the leader board to win the gold boot. It looks like its Kanes to lose, but if Lukaku scores first, it could become very interesting.

    I am interested in what the people who follow national soccer a lot more than me have to think.

    Iíd personally wait for the line ups, some over here in England believe Harry Kane was injured during the Croatia game, it should be high scoring, being a meaningless game but like I said, Iíd wait for team news.

    Line ups are out, Kane and Lukaku both start, I canít see belgium not scoring, England do have goalscorers on the pitch, just depends on what sort of mood the players want to play with, belgium ML at 2.25 looks good imo.

    England have a patched up midfield today with only Trippier being a regular starter ( not sure he is 100% ). Its basically Belgiums " A " team , so i fully expect them to score...... England ?

    BOL

    thanks guys. I got lucky. I got my times switched up and didn't get that bet in.
    I made small plays on Belgium, over 3, England to win 2-1 and Belgium to win 2-1 lol but much smaller loses than I was going to get if i jumped on Both to Score.
    Do they normally pull lots of people at the half or is this something new ?

    Itís because itís a meaningless game, both sides lost their semi finals so thereís no margin for error in this game, England had chances and on another day they wouldíve both scored buts its a dangerous game to bet on because you donít know what the players mind set is.

    Harry Kane checked out,he could have easily gotten two goals.
