BELGIUM will warm-up for their crunch clash against England by hosting a barbecue for the Wags.
Roberto Martinez has invited his playersâ 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 Thursdayâs 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 Saturdayâs afternoon kick-off against Tunisia at the Spartak Stadium in Moscow before leaving on Monday.
But Kevin De Bruyneâs wife Michele and two-year-old son Mason Milian will not be coming.

The Manchester City midfielder, 26, said: "I would also like to see my wife and child but we have decided differently.
"Among other things itâs because I did not want my son to make that flight.
âWill I feel lonely? I have prepared myself for that. We will speak on the phone once a day.
âEveryone decides what is best for his family and I did that too."Source: Google News Belgium | Netizen 24 Belgium
