England’s hopes of qualifying for the Nations League finals were ended by a 2-0 defeat against Belgium in Leuven.

Gareth Southgate’s side had plenty of possession against the world’s top-ranked side but were toothless in attack and ultimately undone by two early goals.

Belgium’s second came after Romelu Lukaku had headed off the line brilliantly from Harry Kane, and while England spent much of the second half in their opponents’ half, they were unable to fashion the opportunities to work their way back into contention.

Defeat means England will not reach the finals after finishing third in 2019, when the inaugural showpiece was held in Portugal.

In the other match in group A2, Christian Eriksen scored twice to give Denmark a 2-1 victory over Iceland.

Meanwhile, Liverpool captain Jordan Henderson was replaced at half-time as a precaution, while Chelsea left-back Ben Chilwell limped off on 38 minutes with an apparent back injury.
