What an absolute load of bollocks.

Fucking hell. Lets completely disregard a 84 year old element of the World Cup... FFS Sakes! ! !

I don’t listen to either station so no. It started because I felt making two teams who have just suffered crushing defeats play a match neither wants to be a bit pointless.

Frankly I couldn’t care less if we come third or fourth.

Where, have either the England or Belgium camps came out and stated that they do not want the match?

Arrogance? It's something that has been discussed for years. I would be surprised if most other countries haven't discussed the same issue about it being a pointless game too.

They haven't, but as England were recently fined £16000 for a U20 player sipping a non sponsored energy drink, can you imagine how much they'd get fined if they said they didn't want to play it.

Doubt it, no more than anyone will be calling for a 3rd & 4th place playoff in the FA cup.

Fa cup isn’t once every 4 years

The Euros are, and they don’t bother with it either.

Holland beat Brazil (3-0?) in 2014.

Remember Germany beating Uruguay in 2010. Klose broke fat Ronaldo’s record in that game IIRC. 

I’d guess Turkey in 2002 but no idea on 2006 or 1998.

Wouldn't mind if we win the 3rd place play off next May.
