England fans and players have long anxious about the team's poor run in shootouts, without a win since 1996, but the team has been working on psychological techniques to cope with the pressure and Young said he'll volunteer if needed.

'I think both managers did well.

For many Colombians, the World Cup is the most important tournament and even event in the world, and despite being confident of their team's quality, for some the thought of losing is too much to bear.

Manchester City midfielder Delph returned to England directly after playing the full 90 minutes of their 1-0 loss to Belgium in Kaliningrad with his wife Natalie due to give birth on Saturday.

"I have been amazed how former players used unity in the squad as a reason for Southgate's selection - well, if this is what creates unity, we have zero chance".

"The result, in my opinion - I can say it now, I'm not [an England] player - the result was the best result for England, I think".

Who wins England-Colombia? And where does all the value lie? "It's easier that it's England and not Belgium because the players of Belgium are hungry [for the win], England aren't", Martino said.

Delph would probably have been on the bench against Colombia with a potential role to add some defensive steel to the midfield later in the game.

"When all the other countries are plotting their way through, I'm sure Gareth would have liked to have kept the momentum going, but sometimes you need to take a step backward to go forward. But they are not at the level of the top teams in the world but certainly are a good team", he said.

Torres, who has been speaking to Colombians on the ground in Russian Federation, said the station surveyed the opinions of fans and journalists after the nation qualified for the last-16. "When you're a little boy, you dream of facing Brazil in the World Cup".

England scored eight goals in their opening two matches, beating Tunisia 2-1 with a late Kane goal before thrashing Panama 6-1.

The status of Colombia playmaker James Rodriguez looms large over the contest. "We are quite stable even when things turn hard", said the 68-year-old.

"It's early, but whatever happens now in this World Cup - whether we go out tomorrow or we go on and win it - the fans and the media back home, I think they need to get behind these lads".

Thokwa's score prediction is a 2-0 England win.
