Fourteen teams have secured spots in the knockout stage at the World Cup , leaving just two more up for grabs on Thursday and a 1-2 finish to be sorted out in the final group.
Belgium and England from Group G meet in Thursday's late pairings to determine which team wins the group and which finishes second. Tunisia and Panama play the other late game but are out of contention.
Japan and Senegal lead Group H with four points apiece. Colombia have three and would advance if they beat Senegal, and both could go through with a draw if Japan loses. Poland are out of contention.
Belgium coach Roberto Martinez said on Wednesday that he didn't expect to use any of his players currently with a yellow card against England.
Players who amass two yellow cards in the three group matches will miss the following game. Both Belgium and England have already qualified for the Round of 16, making Thursday's game less important for both.
Jan Vertonghen, Kevin De Bruyne and Thomas Meunier all picked up yellow cards in Belgium's opening 3-0 win over Panama.
Another Belgium player unlikely to start is Romelu Lukaku, who has four goals from two games. The Manchester United striker picked up a leg injury against Tunisia and limped off after an hour.
A scan showed no serious damage, but Martinez said his top striker is still recovering.
England coach Gareth Southgate may also make changes, but said he wants his team to keep their winning momentum.
