The Red Devils’ manager rested a number of key men during their win over England – and you would expect for him to recall his stars such as Romelu Lukaku, Kevin De Bruyne, and Eden Hazard for this tie.

Adnan Januzaj scored a brilliant goal against England to ensure Belgium finished top of the Group G.

Meanwhile, Japan progressed into the last-16 in historic circumstances.

Romelu Lukaku scored the winning goal and will be keen to catch Harry Kane in the race for the Golden Boot.
