Players to watch

Belgium: F Romelu Lukaku. It’s the second time in the tournament that these teams are meeting, after a group stage finale that had little meaning. This game has even less, but here’s hoping the players take it seriously anyway. Lukaku has been Belgium’s top scorer in the tournament with four goals. After Saturday, he’ll switch from one Red Devils team to another, returning to Manchester United to prepare for the coming English Premier League season.

England: F Raheem Sterling. England’s notorious tabloids have pounded him for not scoring despite ample chances to do so, including eight shots across five games. The suspicion in some corners is he’s an easy scapegoat for those who think he’s a “bad boy” because he sports a tattoo of an assault rifle (to commemorate the murder of his father in Jamaica) and makes lots of money. A Premier League footballer is well-paid? How shocking. And by the way, is it coincidental that he’s black? The old red tops still haven’t grown up after all these years. Here’s hoping Sterling scores in this game to shush them.

Raheem Sterling has taken eight shots and created six scoring chances for England at the World Cup, but hasn't put the ball in the net yet.
