  Belgium 2-0 England: Three Lions dumped out of Nations league BELGIUM 2-0 ENGLAND - IAN LADYMAN: Gareth Southgate's England team are in danger of becoming the kind of team that falls the wrong side of the fine margins when it matters. Just seven months away from a major summer tournament, it is not a good look.Gareth Southgate’s side were easy on the eye against Belgium here. They passed the ball well and looked sporadically dangerous. Once again, Aston Villa’s Jack Grealish stood out as England dominated the final hour of the game. Belgium, for their part, spent long periods of the second half in particular without the football and as such created or threatened very little.

LONDON (Reuters) - Flanker Jack Willis, winger Anthony Watson and hooker Luke Cowan-Dickie have been included in Eddie Jones's extended 25-man squad to face Wales in the Nations Cup on Saturday, but centre Ollie Lawrence will miss the game with a hip injury.

Willis made a tryscoring debut against Georgia two weeks ago but was left our of last weekend's win over Ireland. He is among a strong group of backrow options for Jones alongside Sam Underhill, Tom Curry, Billy Vunipola and Ben Earl - one of whom is likely to miss out when he names his match 23 on Thursday.

Ruthie, 53, recounted: 'I remember when I was about 17 or 18 I stayed in an old mill. I was on my own and I got myself in a state.'I kept hearing the fridge door opening and closing and people padding around on carpet. I got so frightened at one point I had to just put my head under the covers.
