Group G winners Belgium take on Japan on Monday evening in their last-16 clash in Rostov-on-Don.

Much was made of whether finishing top of Group G would be beneficial but, by virtue of their 1-0 win over England, the Red Devils took top spot and their reward is a favourable last-16 clash against the Samurai Blue. After that, things get much tougher.

The Asian nation made it to the knockout stages with four points from their three Group H fixtures but needed fair play rules to pip Senegal to second place.
