But who will edge the tactical battle?
Sport 360’s tactical guru Brendan Netto take us through how both team’s will line up in this knockout clash.
Watch the video below.
Depending on how you looked at it – it was a game with nothing riding on it or an awful lot.
Both Belgium and England had already qualified for the knockout stages of the World Cup in Russia so when the two sides met in Kaliningrad in their final match in Group G on Thursday night, all that had to be decided was who each team would play in the round of 16.
The winner of the match would come up against the lower ranked Japan in the round of 16 but then would likely face Brazil in the quarter-finals, while the loser would come up against the tricky Colombia but then face the relatively easier winner of Sweden and Switzerland in the final eight.
So you can see why everyone was so confused after the match. Check out our video below for all the reaction.
Croatia coach Zlatko Dalic believes the last-16 tie against Denmark will be his side’s “moment of truth” after they topped Group D with a 100 per cent record following a 2-1 win over Iceland.
It is the first time croatia have won three successive World Cup matches and Iceland boss Heimir Hallgrimsson believes their victors have every chance of winning the tournament but Dalic was more circumspect.
“No-one expected nine points but that is what we have ended up with,” the croatia coach said in a post-match press conference.
“We have to put those three matches behind us. We have to focus on Denmark, it is our moment of truth on Sunday.
“From this moment on the group stage is over, we have done a job so far. I don’t think we will end in the last 16.
“What awaits us is the most important thing for us.”
Inter Milan’s Ivan Perisic scored a 90th-minute winner after Gylfi Sigurdsson’s penalty had cancelled out Milan Badelj’s opener early in the second half.
Croatia had already qualified for the knockout stage and Dalic made nine changes as a result but was pleased with the outcome.
