On Saturday, Belgium head coach Roberto Martinez revealed that he does intend on resting a few of his star players for the match against The Three Lions on Thursday.
We will therefore rely on Lukaku, signed for £75 million last summer, to build on his 27-goal debut season and fire us into title contention. So, I didn't think when Roy left there would be any enthusiasm for an internal appointment. I'm surprised. It's unusual to see Germany struggle as much as they have, but the level of all the teams is strong.
The group stage draws to a close on Thursday with one of its most eagerly anticipated games, the calendar serving up a delicious showdown between England and Belgium.
"The reality now is that we are qualified and in a tournament like the World Cup you're only as good as the 23 players in your squad".
"It's very important for us to protect and give every player the best possible programme to be in the best condition for the knockout games".
"But the lads who've played have done well and fully deserved the credit they've got".

Southgate never announces his team officially until an hour before kick-off but he is acutely aware that Kane wants to be involved and has had to balance his captain's wishes with the possibility England's first knockout game could take place on Monday, four days after the Belgium game.
"We had a choice with our friendly matches to play teams who would be a bit easier, but we deliberately chose to play against top teams because we knew it would be better challenge".
"It shows that with Italy and the Netherlands out before the tournament, Chile, who were in the Confederations Cup final, and now Germany, you can not relax and miss the opportunity to constantly improve".
"We have no idea who, when or where we will play", he said. Tomorrow we want to perform well but the priority is not to win.
That would mean we top the group and then we can move forward.
"He has always played in every single game but since the start of the competition, we have not seen him. It just wouldn't be authentic for what we've been trying to build for the last two years".
