England ended Belgium’s 13-match unbeaten run with a 2-1 victory that took Gareth Southgate’s side top of its UEFA Nations League group on Sunday. Marcus Rashford’s penalty canceled out Romelu Lukaku’s spot kick in the first half before Mason Mount’s looping, deflected shot clinched England’s first victory over a top-ranked team in nine years.
England is a point ahead of Belgium in Group 2 of League A ahead of hosting Denmark on Wednesday.
While Belgium was able to play the Ivory Coast in front of thousands of fans in Brussels on Thursday, Wembley remains closed like all English stadiums as part of ongoing coronavirus restrictions.
