colombia Team News:


James Rodriguez is a major injury doubt for Colombia. Luis Muriel may fill in. Abel Aguilar is carrying an injury and is likely to miss out.

england Team News:


John Stones picked up a slight knock against Belgium but is expected to be fit here, meaning England should have a full squad to choose from. The big calls concern whether or not to recall Raheem Sterling and whether Ruben Loftus-Cheek can keep the fit again Dele Alli out of the team.

colombia vs england Head to Head:

The head-to-head favours England and although the meetings haven’t been regular, they’ve generally been memorable. The last was an entertaining 3-2 England win in a 2005 friendly featuring a Michael Owen hat-trick in New Jersey. The Three Lions also beat Colombia 2-0 at the 1998 World Cup with David Beckham scoring a cracking free-kick, while a friendly draw between the sides a few years earlier is best remembered for René Higuita’s famous scorpion kick. The teams have met five times previously overall and England remain unbeaten against the South Americans.

colombia vs england Statistics:

Colombia have reached the knockout stages of the World Cup for the third time but it’s the first time they have accomplished it in consecutive tournaments (1990, 2014, 2018). The only previous occasion they’ve gone past the round of 16 was in 2014. Three of Colombia’s five goals at this year’s World Cup have come from set-pieces (two from corners, one from direct free-kick) whilst England scored more goals from dead ball situations than any other team in the group stages (6). Colombia have scored in each of their last eight World Cup games, the longest current run of any team as of the end of the 2018 group stages. The last time Colombia failed to find the net in the tournament was in June 1998 against England (0-2). None of Colombia’s 21 games at the World Cup has ended goalless. In fact, only the USA (33) and Austria (29) have played more games in the competition without ever registering a 0-0. England have won only two of their last eight knockout games at the World Cup (v Denmark in 2002, v Ecuador in 2006). They had progressed in six of their eight previous games in the knockout phase. England have only failed to score in one of their 18 knockout games at the World Cup, that was against Portugal in the 2006 quarter-finals (0-0 a.e.t, 1-3 on penalties). Harry Kane has played 153 minutes at the World Cup but already only Gary Lineker (10) has scored more times for England in the tournament than the Tottenham striker (5). If Kane finds the net against Colombia, he’ll become the first player to score in six consecutive games for the Three Lions since Tommy Lawton back in 1939.
