Soccer-Meunier gives Belgium halftime lead in lively encounter

ST PETERSBURG, July 14 (Reuters) - Belgium led England 1-0 after a lively opening 45 minutes in the World Cup third-place play-off on Saturday thanks to a fourth-minute goal from Thomas Meunier.

Meunier turned in Nacer Chadli’s low cross from close range after Romelu Lukaku’s pass had sliced open the England defence. Belgium produced some flowing moves and always looked dangerous while England also threatened, with Harry Kane firing wide after being set up by Raheem Sterling.
