Colombia vs England, 3 July 2018

England's best start to a World Cup in 12 years saw them bag a last-minute victor against Tunisia and storm to a 6-1 victory over Panama, their biggest ever win at any major tournament. England looked strong against Panama but lost to Belgium 1-0.

Though usually the best-case scenario is finishing first, the unpredictable nature of the first two rounds of the group stage has meant that numerous tournament's favourites have actually finished second in their group (or have been knocked out altogether).

Notable: England has three wins and two draws in five previous meetings with Colombia, including a 2-0 win during the group stage of the 1998 World Cup.

England boss Southgate should have a full-strength squad to choose from after resting eight players for the final group game against Belgium.

In the United Kingdom, a live stream of the Colombia vs. England 2018 FIFA World Cup match will be carried by ITV and may be accessed inside the United Kingdom only on the ITV Hub streaming service.

Best World Cup finish: Champion, 1966.

For Colombia the focus is on James Rodriguez, who went off injured during Colombia's 1-0 win over Senegal on Thursday and missed training Friday and Saturday.

Brazil win, but Neymar and his antics hog headlines
The incident was clearly meant to wind Neymar up, and Layun was lucky to escape punishment. While his scoring is so often the focus, Neymar also creates goals for his teammates.

Hot weather to last through the Fourth of July

England finished second in Group G after a promising start saw them beat Tunisia with a late victor and thrash Panama 6-1.

When Harry Kane takes the field for England on Tuesday, it will be his first match in nine days. But the Swedes could earn more respect by beating Switzerland and advancing to the quarter-finals for the first time since 1994, when they ultimately finished third.

Colombia edged out Japan to top Group H, while England secured second place in Group G. England enters this round of 16 match at +110 on the money line, meaning you'd need to bet $100 on an English victory to win $110.

For England, this was their chance to show they could flourish when the heat of the battle was rising dangerously close to intolerable. "It is a day to be very proud of these players".

"We have a clear game plan and we are playing according to that", coach Janne Andersson said.

Radamel Falcao will pose another threat to England's defence.

Colombia did their best to put Kane off his stride, delaying the spot kick and even attempting to scuff up the penalty spot, but the England captain kept his nerve and slammed the ball down the middle of the goal with David Ospina having committed to diving to his right.
