England and Colombia are set to go head to head on Tuesday night as they both eye a place in the Quarter-Finals. England go into this game as the favorites.
Kick-off : 9:00 PM (Local)
Venue : Spartak Stadium, Moscow
England have now good chances of winning the world cup given that many of the big teams are already out of the world cup. Although they need to avoid complacency and get through the Colombian challenge.
The Three Lions are vulnerable as they showed in the defeat to Belgium in the group stages. But they should look to play their normal football and that should see Colombia through.
On the other hand, the South Americans are a dangerous outfit and topped their group and will fancy their chances of a Quarter-Final berth.
Los Cafeteros though are vary of the English challenge and know that it will be hard and gonna take all their energy. They will need to believe in themselves and hope for the best.
England have a good track record against Colombia and are undefeated against them thus far.
Team news and news possible line-ups
James Rodriguez and Abel Aguilar are both doubtful for Colombia for the England game. While Luis Muriel is available and will likely play.
As for England, they have no injury concerns and have a fully fit squad to choose from.
Colombia XI : Ospina, Arias, Mina, D. Sanchez, Mojica, C. Sanchez, Uribe, Cuadrado, Quintero, Muriel, Falcao.
England XI : Pickford, Walker, Stones, Maguire, Trippier, Henderson, Loftus-Cheek, Lingard, Young, Sterling, Kane.
I think it’s gonna be a tough match as we will witness an European-South American rivalry. But I think England should prevail in the end. I think they will win 2-0.
