Colombia tie England's biggest game in a decade, says Southgate

GETTY PA POPULAR England fans have been hailed a hit with Russian women

"They are unsafe at set plays but we are as good as anybody at set plays", he added.

Rashford played in the 1-0 loss to Belgium but was a substitute in England's first two games when Sterling started. Though this is not necessarily an irregular occurrence - they've always found a way to momentarily suck us in - there is something discernibly different this time around. Some disciplinary, some have been penalty shoot outs.

"We weren't focused on that [paths to the final] before the game, we want to win every game possible and we're disappointed, that's the main thing", the 19-year-old said.

"People will say that will only be the right decision if we win but it was the right decision because we could potentially be going into another match that could go into extra time and risking players we didn't need to risk".

Gareth Southgate's men qualified to face the South Americans after finishing second in Group G following a defeat to Belgium in which eight changes were made.

"We've played well in the games leading into it and played well in the tournament".

"Of course we have a responsibility to the supporters, and the support in the stadium was absolutely outstanding tonight". It's about performing a skill under pressure. "Some we shouldn't be interfering, others we are giving them a process which we believe will help them".

Spurs 'Fully Engaged' with Celtics, Lakers in Kawhi Leonard Trade Talks
The Lakers want to trade for Leonard in the near future in the hopes that he could attract LeBron James to L.A. Both teams have a bevy of assets they could offer in exchange for Kawhi, should they decide to pursue him.

"As a staff, knowing who is in charge of which bits, who needs to get out of the way, who can speak with clarity to the players".

Belgium - one of the few top-tier teams to deliver on its hype so far - plays Japan, which sneaked out of its group because it got fewer yellow cards than Senegal.

Martinez has hailed the pleasure his whole squad have been taking on the pitch and has worked to build a team spirit where clashes of egos bedevilled the Belgians under his predecessor Marc Wilmots at the last World Cup and at Euro 2016.

Rashford has a brilliant chance to equalise for the Three Lions in the second half when he was put through on goal.

At the back, they are marshalled by Barcelona defender Yerry Mina, who has scored twice at this tournament, while Davinson Sanchez will come up against his Spurs team-mate Kane. "We're all fighting and raring to go, and can't wait for the next game".

"If we win again tonight, then all of a sudden the reality of where we are might not have been in people's minds". Your team's last-16 game with Colombia should be an absolute doddle.
