Gareth Southgate makes tournament strategy revelation ahead of England vs Colombia

"It's exciting. We've got the chance to be the team that changes that record".

When the World Cup finals began 14 days earlier, Russian Federation had no hope, Mohamed Salah was one of the putative stars, VAR was a disaster waiting to happen and the Germans most likely had a bus parade route marked for Berlin, just in case.

Belgium manager Roberto Martinez has said the Russia 2018 World Cup is "the best he has been involved in" and that the tournament has given an "incredible image of the Russian people" and the country.

With a hat-trick of wins in the group stage, the Belgian Red Devils pipped England to top spot in Group G.

England hold no fear for World Cup last 16 opponents Colombia, said the South American side's coach Jose Pekerman, who is relishing the prospect of the "full on, to-the-death" knockout phase of the tournament.

"We want to win football matches, so we're not happy to come away from here having been beaten".

"It's one of the reasons why we've done what we did (against Belgium), to give ourselves the best possible opportunity of doing that".




The 25-year-old is behind only England forward Harry Kane (five) in the Golden Boot race. It looked like Colombia had 30,000-40,000 fans in the stadium.

Even at Tottenham, the striker is known for his dedication to play in every game, no matter the competition.

Gareth Southgate granted Delph permission to leave the squad ahead of the tournament, though he is expected to return to Russian Federation on Sunday and be available for England's round of 16 match against Colombia in Moscow on Tuesday.

"They could reach the final if they had a decent team!"

On the rebuilding process that faces Chile, Sanchez added: 'We are not Brazil or Argentina, they have 50 players, we are Chile and it is the reality that until now there is not much spare. "It would not be hard to see England drawing and that game going to penalties".

"But if we believe it's the right thing then stand by it".

Japan are top and need just a point ($3.3) against already eliminated Poland to make sure they are the only Asian side to have a shot at glory.
