World Cup Third Place Play-Offs

Can you name each nation to have finished third & fourth at the World Cup?

We're sadly approaching the final weekend of the 2018 FIFA World Cup and what a tournament it's been. Russia have been the fantastic hosts of some of the best football we've ever seen over the last month and the wait for Qatar 2022 is going to be an extremely long one for us all. This summer we've seen so many shocks, upsets and goals along with plenty of entertainment and excitement - resulting in some moments that will live long in the memory. The decision to host the 2018 World Cup in Russia was initially a controversial one but it's been a real revelation and it would've changed several opinions on the nation.

Several nations have enjoyed memorable tournaments and none more so than England, who on Wednesday night devastatingly bowed out. Gareth Southgate's men have enjoyed their longest run at the Finals since 1990, cruelly losing in extra-time to a very good Croatia side. It's been a tough pill to swallow for us all as England fans but our adventure in Russia isn't over just yet, with a third place play-off clash with Group G rivals Belgium to come on Saturday night in Saint Petersburg. It looks a bit of a dead rubber on paper but Gareth and the boys will be desperate to bow out on a high.
