Marcus Rashford insists he would take a penalty against Colombia

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

If Colombia can keep up their defensive form from the group stage, England could very well struggle to create chances in this game as well.

The Colombia game could be a defining moment for England, who haven't won a knock-out game in a tournament since beating Ecuador in the last 16 of the 2006 World Cup in Germany, courtesy of David Beckham's free-kick.

Not surprisingly, manager Gareth Southgate says his team have been working on penalties.

England have been practising penalties since March.

"I think he [Sanchez] is a great player, I don't think any player is ideal, we know things, we know how he plays and he has a lot of strengths".

"We're aware the margins are going to be really fine in these knockout phases".

"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.

Manager Gareth Southgate, who missed the crucial spot-kick in the Euro 96 semi-final, has the whole squad practicing and insists that they emulate the walk from the centre circle to the penalty area in training.

Stones was pictured on the England bench with heavy strapping and ice around his left calf during the second half of the game against Belgium on Thursday.

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.

It is only a matter of months since he bid farewell to his own teenage years but while Mbappe is primed for superstar status, Rashford has too often had to settle for cameos with United and England in recent times. "That gives the team the best chance". The figure drops to 57 per cent if they have failed, as England nearly always have. I'm confident in myself and what's meant to be will be.

"We've become like family", he said. For some of them, this will be one of the biggest games they'll have been involved in.

"I'm constantly talking to them about going for it in life", he said. I think that's why we've done well.

"The boys played well, the coach made a good decision, I think, and we're ready for the next game".

"The English are a country with a lot of history, they are very structured, they have players with important offensive power and they have shown in this competition, tactically, a very well worked team".
