Colombia star James still a chance for England clash

He has been training with him every day for the a year ago - and that is going to give him extra knowledge about his qualities and the way he plays.

Pretty tasteless stuff and it hasn't gone down well with Colombia's ambassador to the UK.

However, a football-loving cat has emerged as a star supporter for England's next World Cup opponents.

A spokesperson for the Sun defended the paper's choice of front page stating it was "suitably light-hearted considering the context" and said they hoped it would have a positive effect on the Colombian coffee industry.

The penalty which led to England's breakthrough was awarded in the 52nd minute as midfielder Carlos Sanchez, who had been lucky to escape punishment for previous incidents, wrestled Kane to the ground. That gives the team the momentum England lacks, Pekerman said.

"The game against Belgium was a bit of a game which probably no-one wanted to win". This will be the second clash between Colombia and England at FIFA World Cup. Regulation ended 1-1 as Colombia canceled out a Harry Kane penalty-kick goal late in the match, and neither could find the victor in extra time.


"Davinson's a great player, a great guy as well", Alli said.

England prevailed in penalties after a 1-1 draw, with a win that is sure to inflame British passions about a national team that has already been hailed as one of the best in decades. Southgate has been looking to other sports like basketball and American football for insights into how players can deceive the opposition during a free kick or corner.

Southgate has his own personal connection with penalty shootouts, having missed a decisive one against Germany at Wembley which sent England crashing out of Euro 1996. As well as incorporating elements of play into even the duller parts of training, like a warm-down - he had players racing inflatable unicorns in the pool - the coach had players practicing penalties ahead of the Colombia game. 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. "If I'm on the pitch, I want to take one".

England's players fumed and Harry Maguire called for the video assistant referee, yet referee Geiger inexplicably only handed out a booking when information came through his headset.

The only elimination games that England have won since their 1990 run to the semi-finals have been against Ecuador in 2006 and Denmark in 2002.

As you'd expect, England fans weren't happy.
