#WorldCupUpdate: We want to win every game - England manager Gareth Southgate

Gareth Southgate says England will not try to plot their path through the World Cup knockout stages amid suggestions they would be best served trying to finish second in their group.
England take on Belgium on Thursday with top spot in Group G at stake. Both sides have already qualified for the last 16 after winning their opening two matches.
However, if Brazil finish top of Group E and Germany come second in Group F, whoever finishes second in England's group would avoid them both and plot a favourable route to the semi-finals.

Southgate said "For our country, that would be a very difficult mindset to have. We want to win every game of football we go into. I don't know how we would go into a game not wanting to win and not wanting to play well. So, I think that's dangerous territory if we start trying to plot and predict where we might end up. I think we just have to keep playing as well as we can, keep preparing the team the right way, keep the momentum and I have to keep the squad involved. That's the one thing I think is really important."
