James could return against England

Albert-Belgium

GETTY World Cup 2018 Philippe Albert says England will find it difficult to beat Colombia

When Harry Kane takes the field for England on Tuesday, it will be his first match in nine days.

Colombia's Football Federation confirmed on Saturday that "James Rodriguez underwent a scan today which showed that he is suffering from minor edema, but that there has been no muscle tear".

Both sides come into this match knowing the victor will face Sweden in the next round and either Russian Federation or Croatia in the semi-final if they can progress further in the tournament.

Henderson went down holding his face in the first-half of the game at Spartak Stadium after grappling with Colombia defender Wilmar Barrios as they jostled for position in the wall before an England free-kick.

Let us know your prediction in the comment section below. Woodward takes issue with the selection policy of Southgate - although his Belgian counterpart Roberto Martinez also made sweeping changes - but is more staggered by another facet of the thinking behind the policy. "James is a great player but I am sure that if he doesn't play there will be other players who can make a difference", he said.

After decades stewing on his Euro 96 semi-final miss against Germany, Gareth Southgate has spent recent months trying to improve their chances in Russian Federation if it went all the way. "Losing the game might actually benefit England to go further in the World Cup, to be on the right side of the draw which I believe they are".

"We are a better team than four years ago", explained goalkeeper David Ospina to reporters, adding that the experience and unity in the current squad gives them a great chance of prevailing.

Colombia and England have played each other only once competitively, in the group stage of the 1998 World Cup.

Asked whether England had achieved their objective by finishing second to Belgium in Group G, Lingard replied: "Obviously we're going to have to play the big teams sooner or later". There is nothing wrong with having hope, but there is everything wrong with the kind of arrogance which has had people talking of "choosing" a route through the latter rounds. He's still the leading scorer at the World Cup. With a little bit of luck they might even win it.

"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".

And when Jordan Henderson missed with England's third kick, it looked like history would repeat itself.

England by contrast struggled to beat Tunisia in the first game before putting six past minnows Panama.
