But they will still celebrate in front of fans in Brussels on Sunday, the day after their third-place play-off with England.

Gareth Southgate’s side, who lost to Croatia in the semi, fly back to Birningham on Sunday but they have no plans to put on any events for fans.

Belgium will meet King Philippe at the Royal Palace of Brussels before going on their bus.

They will then be presented on the balcony of the City Hall.

Meanwhile, Roberto Martinez has vowed to play a strong side ahead of the third-place play-off match in St Petersburg.

The Spaniard said: “I am not going to make changes now to give certain players opportunities because they have already received them against England.

“Any change will be to make the team stronger.

“It’s a game we need to play at a good level and we need to have fresh legs.



“But the players are still very fresh mentally.

“Even the most important players that have completed a lot of minutes, I’ve seen them fresh and looking forward to the game.”
