England and Colombia World Cup last-16 match goes to extra

Share

Both sides come into this match knowing the victor will face Sweden in the next round and either Russian Federation or Croatia in the semi-final if they can progress further in the tournament.

Colombia midfielder James Rodriguez will miss Tuesday's World Cup last-16 tie against England after failing to recover from a calf injury.

The two teams face off at the Otkyrie Arena for a place in the World Cup quarter final. As the BBC noted, England defeated Denmark in 2002 and then Ecuador in 2006.

Southgate made eight changes for the final group game against Belgium to keep his top players fresh for Colombia. "The lads have got the chance to write their own stories".

When Harry Kane takes the field for England on Tuesday, it will be his first match in nine days.

Any time spent watching Southgate's squad at close quarters reveals a contrasting camaraderie and Lingard feels this can work in the Three Lions' favour at a World Cup that continues to open up unpredictably.

In Colombia, the live stream starts at 1 p.m. Colombia Time, and in the United Kingdom, that start time will be 7 p.m.

The higher your observation point, and the fewer buildings and cloud are obstructing the horizon, the sooner you'll see it. When will be the best time to see it? It will rise in the east Wednesday at 7:28 p.m. and Thursday at 8:16 p.m.

It was a stunning end to normal time that left England ragged and reeling. Eastern (11 a.m. Pacific). But England bounced back to win and remain in Russian Federation.

On paper, England's tilt with Colombia at Moscow's intimate Spartak Stadium is more or less a wash - England is 12th in the Federation Internationale de Football Association rankings and Colombia is 16th, not that the rankings have meant much in an upset-heavy World Cup that's already seen Germany, Portugal, Argentina and Spain eliminated.

"Nothing will frighten us". We have a very hard opponent, a very good side who we respect.

"Harry Kane is an emblematic player who has demonstrated his quality at this World Cup but we are not only facing him, we're playing against the whole England team, who have a lot of key players", said Sanchez, who knows English football well, having spent two seasons with Aston Villa from 2014 to 2016. James Rodriguez was forced off in the 1-0 win over Senegal and could feature on the bench against England. This will be the second clash between Colombia and England at FIFA World Cup.

"If you think back to 1990 where we had Cameroon and Belgium to get to a World Cup semi-final, we've now got an opportunity to play Colombia and Sweden or Switzerland to get to a World Cup semi-final", he continued.

A surprise World Cup triumph could boost tourism in towns like Palomino, with global visits to Colombia soaring over the past decade. All three of those "internet TV" services require credit card information and subscription fees, but they all offer seven-day free trial periods.
