Colombia v England: Preview
After a loss to Belgium in their final group game, England will now face Colombia in the Last 16 stage of the World Cup 2018 in Russia at the Spartak Stadium on Tuesday evening.
This is a huge game for England, and while Colombia will be tough opponents, bookmakers offer Gareth Southgate’s men as favourites to win and secure a place in the quarter-finals.
The last time these two teams met was back in 2005 when England won an international friendly 3-2, but they are very different teams now and this match has a lot more riding on it this time.
Gareth Southgate’s men had some decent wins in their first 2 games against Tunisia and Panama, but a loss to Belgium saw them finish as the runner up in World Cup Group G.
This may have been more of a strategic move by Southgate, with 8 changes to the squad and key players including Harry Kane rested for the last match.
It means that England should be in a much stronger position heading into the Colombia game, with fresher players, as well as a having a potentially more favourable run in to the Final.
If England win, they'll face either Sweden or Switzerland in the quarter-finals, meaning they'd avoid having to play Brazil and have a much better chance of getting to the actual Final.
Southgate made some significant changes to the line up for the Belgium game, ensuring that key players were rested and in top form for the bigger battles they face as they progress.
There have been questions about whether this will have had an impact on England’s form, but this shouldn’t be an issue if they return to the winning line-up of their first 2 games.
Colombia didn’t have an easy time in the group stages, surprising everybody by topping the group after they beat Senegal, while Japan lost to Poland and finished second.
The South American’s will a tough team to beat, however they are without star player James Rodriguez who is struggling with a calf injury. Facing one of the top teams in the tournament without one of their key players could prove to be too much for Colombia.
It was disappointing to play a weaker team against Belgium, but the teams they now face should put England in a much stronger position heading into the final stages of the competition.
If England can secure a victory against Colombia in this Last 16 match, there's no reason why they can’t go on a run and do much better in World Cup 2018 than they did last time around.
