England 'not scared' of anyone says Dele Alli

It’s been incredible the best I’ve been involved in’- Belgium’s Martinez on Russia World Cup

If anybody embodies the new-found positivity and fun coursing through England's World Cup squad, it's Jesse Lingard.

Since the Three Lions won the World Cup 52 years ago, they have managed just a paltry six victories in knockout games in major tournaments.

After finishing second in their group, Southgate's England team will face the victor of Tuesday's game between Switzerland and Sweden in the last eight if they can beat Colombia.

Gareth Southgate's playing career was defined by the shot he side-footed into the hands of Andreas Kopke as England then lost in the semi-finals at Wembley to Germany. If I had played against Belgium and hadn't scored, maybe I'd be thinking, "I didn't score in my last match". It's changed the whole mindset for us'.

"But when we are in possession, it allows me to get further forward to get beyond the striker a bit more and get into goalscoring positions", he said.

England play Colombia in their World Cup last-16 match on Tuesday, in what is one of the biggest games in the country's recent history.

Retailer Marks & Spencer, which supplies the England team's official World Cup suit, said sales were up 35% "across all our waistcoats".

CSU's Seehofer offers to stand down over border bans
Mrs Merkel has rejected that approach, saying Germany needs to address migration more broadly to preserve European Union unity. Pressure from the right is especially acute for the CSU as it faces October regional elections in Bavaria.

In the corridors leading out of the Arena Baltika, the Belgium players from the Premier League greeted their England counterparts like old friends, even those who did not share club loyalties.

England made a positive impression in the early stages of the tournament in Russian Federation and are now looking to reach the quarter-finals for the first time since 2006.

Passion and excitement for the national team has waned in recent years, thanks in no small part to a group-stage exit at the last World Cup and the galling Euro 2016 defeat to Iceland.

"I think everyone's happy, everyone has their own banter with each other", he continued.

Alli said: 'We've been practising a lot on the training field.

"We are going to not make it an easy game for him". You don't always get that in a tournament and it means I'll be ready to go on Tuesday. Friends have told me what he said. The organization has surprised everyone, I think it's given an incredible image of the Russian people, of Russia in general. We can go further.' The game looks like being a niggly affair after the Swedes tried to wind up their opponents ahead of kick-off.
