American Mark Geiger to referee England-Colombia round-of-16 clash

American Mark Geiger to referee England-Colombia round-of-16 clash

England has the joint-youngest team left in the tournament along with France, and the team with players who have the fewest global appearances.

But regardless of the results to come, Rooney also stressed that the fans should get behind the team, which is likely to feature numerous same players at Euro 2020 and the next World Cup.

'It is a hungry England team.

England, who won the World Cup in 1966, have a awful record in major tournaments, and have not won a knockout match since they beat Ecuador in the 2006 World Cup. "We want to do what we did in Brazil and show that we can play against teams like England", he said.

"It's pointless about us even thinking about what might happen after tomorrow's game". We focus on the game, on our performance, and everything will fall into place from there.

He added that England has taken note of how Colombia beat Poland 3-0 in the group stage and "we've got to make sure that our work without the ball is spot on" to avoid being punished on the counter.

Kane, the tournament's top marksman with five goals in two matches, will be desperate to get back on the scoresheet as he hunts the Golden Boot.

Colombia manager Jose Pekerman is hoping that midfielder James Rodriguez will be fit for his side's Round of 16 clash with England on Tuesday night. "After his MRI (scan) we knew that he doesn't have a serious injury", Pekerman told reporters.

Radamel Falcao will pose another threat to England's defence.

The Swiss have only lost one match in the past two years, with 15 wins and four draws during that stretch. The team has repeatedly denied it's looking beyond the Colombia game, something Southgate called "pointless". He refereed Portugal's 1-0 win over Morocco and Germany's 2-0 loss to South Korea, which eliminated the defending champions. Colombia's qualification went down to the wire in their last group match with Senegal. "Keep believing in Belgium".

Neymar was criticised for his early performances in Russian Federation as he eased his way back to fitness after a broken foot bone, but he is edging back to his best as the five-time winners move through the gears. This side is largely the same as that which impressed in Brazil.
