ENGLAND take on Belgium in their fifth UEFA Nations League group game this year – one they need to win badly.
The Three Lions have already defeated Belgium this year, beating them 2-1 last month at Wembley.

But Gareth Southgate’s side couldn’t capitalise on the result as England lost their game after 1-0 to Denmark.
So on Sunday England will need to be firing on all cylinders in order to head into their final game with Iceland with a chance to moving on to next year’s finals.
What time is kick-off?
- Belgium vs England will kick off at 7.45pm UK time on Sunday, November 15.
- The game will take place at the King Power Stadion in Leuven.
- The game was originally scheduled to take place in Brussels but it was moved because of a Covid curfew in the capital.
What channel is it on and can it be live streamed?
- England vs Belgium will be shown live on Sky Sports Football.
- The game can be live-streamed through your mobile device or tablet, providing you have a NOW TV or Sky Go account.
What is the team news?
Manchester United captain Harry Maguire is suspended, having picked up a red card in England’s last Nations League clash with Denmark.
Chelsea’s Reece James, who has been pivotal for Southgate’s side at right-back, will return to his club because he is also suspended.
Conor Coady has to miss out on the game as he is self-isolating after being made aware he inadvertently came into contact with someone who had coronavirus.
And Marcus Rashford has withdrawn from the squad because of an injury he picked up earlier this week.

Southgate will likely field a much different side to the one which beat Ireland 3-0 on Thursday.
Belgium will no doubt have all their big stars on the pitch, including Manchester City’s Kevin de Bruyne and Inter Milan striker Romelu Lukaku.
Belgium – 27/20
