Yerry Mina sends Colombia-England into extra time

This is the moment of truth’ says Kane ahead of Colombia clash

The England skipper sat at the top of the World Cup goal charts after hitting the net five times in just two matches as the Three Lions booked a last-16 meeting with the South Americans in Moscow on Tuesday.

As both the teams have performed exceptionally well in their group stage, no team can be written-off ahead of the encounter. "No one laid on the floor and we stood there when it counted".

Because not only are Colombia a risky proposition, with James Rodriguez potentially being fit to line up alongside other phenomenal attacking talents such as Juan Quintero, Radamel Falcao and Juan Cuadrado, but it would be so very English to start running before we can walk. England fans were few and far between, lost in a sea of Colombian yellow, a few of their supporters wearing blonde afro wigs in honour of the country's footballing hero Carlos Valderrama.

Dele Alli is fit against and has been cleared for the encounter against Colombia. As the match progressed, tempers have started to flare up - and this has resulted in headbutt which should have been a red card for Colombia. The last time when Colombia and England encountered, the latter won the match 2-0.

Yerry Mina has been the better of the performers so far in Russian Federation.

Abel Aguilar is confirmed to be on the absentee list.

Should the Cucuta-born star not make it into the staring XI, he is likely to be replaced by Sevilla's Luis Muriel who deputized in the win over Senegal when the Bayern Munich man departed proceedings after half an hour.

Pope is Southgate's third choice goalie in Russian Federation, with number one Pickford and Stoke City's Jack Butland ahead of him in the pecking order. Harry Kane came the closest with a glancing header.

Kieran Trippier has been hailed for his displays thus far and his crossing ability should come to great use for England against Colombia.

The 2018 World Cup in Russian Federation is heating up nicely.

Colombia is in limbo as a young populist prepares to take over as President in August, after one of the most polarised elections in decades.

Moments later, Jesse Lingard saw a near-post run blocked on the doorstep and second-half substitute Eric Dier missed the target with his wide-open header from the ensuing corner kick.

Mina said: "Of course, we hope that James is able to play because he is such an important player for us, but I think we have shown the last two games that we have creativity and goals in the team even when he is not playing".

Harry Kane's sixth goal of the World Cup appeared enough to secure England's first knockout win at a major tournament in 12 years, the Three Lions captain scoring from the spot after he was fouled by Carlos Sanchez.
