Belgium have made history at the Fifa World Cup by beating England 2-0 to finish third for the first time.

Thomas Meunier and captain Eden Hazard scored the two goals that stopped England from finishing the tournament in Russia on a winning note, after an unexpected journey to the semi-finals.

Meunier missed the semi-final loss to France due to suspension.

He scored after only four minutes before Hazard grabbed a late second as the Red Devils did better than the side that came fourth at the 1986 edition in Mexico.

Belgium have now defeated England twice in two weeks, having beaten them 1-0 in their group stage encounter.
