Colombia 1-1 England (3-4 on penalties)

Southgate

Coach Jose Pekerman said on Monday that he was hopeful James would play some part against England, but that was not to be.

According to FourFourTwo, an estimated 40,000 Colombian fans will have arrived in Russian Federation by the time the match against England kicks off on Tuesday. He came off the bench in his team's 2-1 loss to Japan in their opener.

Midfielder Delph, who played the full 90 minutes against Belgium, is expected to travel back quickly to England's base.

Reaction - James Rodriguez out of England match! Should that be the case, Loftus-Cheek will slot in the midfield alongside Jordan Henderson.

Despite coming under small criticism for his performance against Belgium, Jordan Pickford unsurprisingly keeps his place in goal with the Three Lions hoping to keep a clean sheet for the first time at this year's World Cup competition.

The celebrations at the end told their own story after Dier had joined Harry Kane, Marcus Rashford and Kieran Trippier in scoring from 12 yards.

While the English may already be planning their World Cup celebrations, Pekerman and his side will be thinking otherwise and they certainly posses enough quality to book date with either Sweden or Switzerland in the last eight of Russian Federation 2018.

Cavaliers fan sets himself ablaze trying to burn LeBron jersey
Basketballer LeBron James has signed a four-year contract with the Los Angeles Lakers , his management announced late Sunday. James, 33, will not be the only veteran on the young team next season, however.

One of Russia, Croatia, Switzerland, Sweden, England or Colombia will reach the showpiece final in Moscow on July 15. The outcome of the match might depend on how the duel between Davinson Sanchez and the England attackers turn out.

"We have a clear game plan and we are playing according to that", coach Janne Andersson said. Sánchez had both arms round Kane as Trippier swung over the corner and, sooner or later, teams are going to realise they can not keep getting away with this form of premeditated obstruction.

The Three Lions looked to have got the edge in the match so far.

Colombia though, are likely to miss the services of James Rodriguez.

England on the other hand, have failed to create many chances from open play and will rely on the set-pieces again on Tuesday. Even if Rodriguez is out, Radamel Falcao and Colombia have enough firepower on paper to still come away victorious. In reality, the match is too close to call.

That was not straightforward when Harry Kane was being shackled by Mina, a centre-half of such formidable size. Kane has 13 goals in nine games under Southgate and 11 in his seven appearances as England's captain.
