BELGIUM will warm-up for their crunch clash against England by hosting a barbecue for the Wags.

Roberto Martinez has invited his players’ partners and children to stay in their team hotel for two nights after their game with Tunisia on Saturday.

And a total of 112 extra guests will be at their five-star Moscow Country Club base - with a huge BBQ scheduled for this weekend before Thursday’s final Group G game with the Three Lions in Kaliningrad.

Manager Martinez has been keen to encourage a family-friendly environment after his predecessor, Marc Wilmot s, did not allow players to share any nights with loved ones at Euro 2016.

The Belgian Wags will be in the stands for Saturday’s afternoon kick-off against Tunisia at the Spartak Stadium in Moscow before leaving on Monday.

But Kevin De Bruyne’s wife Michele and two-year-old son Mason Milian will not be coming.

"Among other things it’s because I did not want my son to make that flight.

“Will I feel lonely? I have prepared myself for that. We will speak on the phone once a day.

“Everyone decides what is best for his family and I did that too."
