Gareth Southgate: Colombia clash is England's biggest in a decade

It’s been incredible the best I’ve been involved in’- Belgium’s Martinez on Russia World Cup

It’s been incredible the best I’ve been involved in’- Belgium’s Martinez on Russia World Cup

Graham Roberts has predicted Tottenham Hotspur midfielder Dele Alli to star for England against Colombia at the World Cup on social networking site Twitter, and has also given his take on Liverpool handing Mohamed Salah a new contract.

After finishing second in their group, Southgate's England team will face the victor of Tuesday's game between Switzerland and Sweden in the last eight if they can beat Colombia.

Southgate wore a navy blue three-piece suit from M&S at every England group game, despite sweltering summer heat in Russian Federation.

After the damp squib of a heavily rotated line-up losing 1-0 to Belgium in their final group game, Lingard is confident England have more gears to go through in Russian Federation so long as they have road left to run.

"We don't need to change too much". "Everyone thought I was going to play today because I wanted the golden boot", he said, "but there's a bigger picture, a bigger priority and that's to go as far as we can and that's what we have to focus on".

Defending champion Germany knocked out of 2018 World Cup
Minutes later, Germ-any's humiliation was completed with a touch of farce. 2002 - France South Korea were also eliminated despite the victory.

But coach Jose Pekerman faces an anxious wait to see if World Cup talisman James Rodriguez can recover from a mystery injury to face the Three Lions.

He's been racing aboard unicorns in the pool at England's team hotel.

If James plays and is fit, his creativity is key to Colombia and if he misses it all the responsibility it will be down to wide players Juan Cuadrado and Juan Quintero, whose set pieces have been a key weapon for Colombia so far in Russian Federation.

But on Monday he was still in England, reducing his chances of returning in time for the game.

The tournament is considered wide open following the elimination of Germany, Spain and Argentina but Southgate refuses to get carried away with his team's chances.

England's eight goals in the group stage tied for second most of any team in the World Cup.

"But you know we've got the men to deal with that. I'd be willing to step forward", Rashford said. In spot-kicks awarded during games, he has saved only three out of 38 and one in his last 15. In the 6-1 win over Panama in the group stage, he scored one of the goals of the tournament so far, exchanging passes with Raheem Sterling before curling a long-range shot into the top corner of the net.

"Ten months ago we qualified and people were throwing paper aeroplanes onto the pitch at Wembley", said Southgate. It's no problem for me, just part of the pre-match provocations.

"The English are a country with a lot of history, they are very structured, they have players with important offensive power and they have shown in this competition, tactically, a very well worked team".

Liverpool's bid is a long way off the Spaniard's €700 million release clause in the contract that he signed previous year . The Reds have, in fact, lodged a €180 million bid to Real Madrid to sign the Spaniard in the summer transfer window.
