With England set to meet the South Americans this evening in Moscow, the newspaper splashed the following message across their frontpage: "As 3 Lions face nation that gave us Shakira, great coffee, and er, other stuff, we say.GO KANE!" One in three people said that they would be supporting teams with Premier League players in them, slightly more understandable given how popular the PL is over here. One key player is 22-year-old Dele Alli, who has recovered from a thigh strain that sidelined him from England's last two games.
The winners of Tuesday evening's clash between England and Colombia will face the victors of Sweden and Switzerland in the quarter finals - a game which will be played on July 7.
England qualified from Group G thanks to wins over Tunisia and Panama and with their place booked they fielded a second-string side in their 1-0 defeat to a similarly weakened Belgium in a odd final group game that neither side showed much desire to win. The team has repeatedly denied it's looking beyond the Colombia game, something Southgate called "pointless".
Lincoln-born Dan Jones is ready for an incredible atmosphere in Colombia ahead of Tuesday's World Cup round of 16 clash (7pm kick-off United Kingdom time).
"We will do our analysis of Colombia. I believe it was definitely the right decision", Rooney said.
