Belgium's record goalscorer Romelu Lukaku took his tally to 40 goals in 71 caps with a double against Tunisia on Saturday, becoming the first player since Diego Maradona in 1986 to score twice in back-to-back World Cup matches. No midfield contest pitching Eden Hazard of Chelsea and Kevin De Bruyne of Manchester City on Belgium's side against Jordan Henderson of Liverpool and Jesse Lingard of Manchester United on England's. "We want to be a group that cares about each other and find a way to feed all the exceptional individual talent we have", said Martinez, who has spoken of his admiration for how Belgium's cultural and linguistic diversity also creates adaptable players.

"Today we're allowed to celebrate", he said of the first time the country had scored five goals in a World Cup match.

"(It) probably gives you an advantage psychologically if you've won it before or if you've got a direction from someone, a generation, that has won it before in your nation", he said.

On day 10 of the World Cup, there was a growing sense of relief from Belgium fans that their side could go all the way and win the tournament. "We have to see how he has digested the training, and only then will we decide whether he is playing or not", Martinez said. "We will do everything we can to win that game".

Spain are the current favourites at [6.0], with Brazil next best at [6.2]. "If you want to have that winning feeling, it's best to keep on winning", said Courtois, "I don't want to go back to England in July with a losing feeling".
