England fans, have no fear: Three Lions loss to Belgium will not affect World Cup momentum

 
sbo333 So England's second string are not as good as Belgium’s. Who knew? Most of us, actually.Before this World Cup started it was the widely accepted view that the Belgians not only had better, elite level individual players than Gareth Southgate had at his disposal, but that their squad had far more strength in depth, too.

So it proved in Kaliningrad as England were beaten 1-0 and were the second best team for most of the Baltic evening. It may feel like a lost opportunity to ride the crest of a wave into the knock-out stage but both managers cut their cloth for what was a dead rubber.  

In the end, Group G panned out precisely as most observers expected, with the two major nations both comfortably seeing off Tunisia and Panama sbo333 and Belgium finishing top. There will be a major debate about whether Southgate has lost some of the momentum which carried his players through the first two games in Russia. It will be a valid one.

But for starters, let’s remember they had some of this precious quality in the first place – and we won’t know until kick-off against Colombia in the last 16 in Moscow next Tuesday if it has upped and gone, anyway.It has rarely been sighted around this team for decades until now.

sbo333 And let’s remember also that tiredness and world-weariness have cost England so dearly at previous tournaments.By contrast, after making eight changes on Thursday, Southgate takes a rested and largely injury-free first team - John Stones is a corner after going off at half-time - to the next round, with Dele Alli recovering.

Liverpool 5-0 Napoli: Alisson debut and Mohamed Salah scores
 
maxbet Alisson made his debut and Mohamed Salah scored as Liverpool beat Napoli 5-0 in a pre-season friendly in Dublin on Saturday.James Milner and Georginio Wijnaldum netted inside a bright opening 10 minutes for the Reds.Summer signing Alisson kept out a shot from Lorenzo Insigne but otherwise had little to do, particularly in the second half when Liverpool ran away with the game.

Salah curled a shot into the top corner in the 58th minute before substitutes Daniel Sturridge and Alberto Moreno added to the scoreline.After wins over Manchester City and Manchester United, this was another encouraging display from Liverpool against a Napoli side who have finished as runners-up in Serie A in two of the last three seasons.

maxbet The Reds finish their pre-season against Torino on Tuesday before facing West Ham in their Premier League opener on Sunday, live on Sky Sports.Liverpool made a rapid start in the Aviva Stadium as a 70-yard pass from Alisson help set up the opening goal in the fourth minute - Milner finishing from the penalty spot after Sadio Mane's pass inside.

It was 2-0 shortly afterwards as Milner whipped in a cross from the left and Wijnaldum beat Orestis Karnezis to the ball and headed into the empty net.Alisson did not have much to do until the 26th minute when he saved a shot from Insigne.Roberto Firmino saw a goal wrongly ruled out for offside and so did Napoli later in the half as Insigne chipped over the top for Jose Callejon.

But Liverpool enjoyed the better of the second half, with Salah curling a shot into the top corner in the 58th minute.Sturridge twice went close before finding the net in the 73rd minute from a rebound maxbet after Divock Origi's shot was saved.Moreno then fired home in the 78th minute after a brilliant crossfield pass from Sturridge, while Alisson kept out a near-post shot from Simone Verdi late in the game.
