Gareth Southgate says England have 'brilliant opportunity' to end knockout hoodoo

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

James Rodriguez is an injury doubt for Colombia ahead of their game against England.

England have not won a penalty shootout since 1996, when they defeated Spain in the European Championship.

Southgate wore a navy blue three-piece suit from M&S at every England group game, despite sweltering summer heat in Russian Federation.

"We've been practising and going through strategies on penalties since March". But Kane is ignoring all the talk around his own performances and England's hopes of success in Russian Federation after reading too much during the dismal Euro 2016 campaign.

"I've said all along to the players that this is a big tournament, but family is more important".

Kane leads the race for the Golden Boot but was kept in reserve by Gareth Southgate for a 1-0 defeat to Belgium that meant the Three Lions finished second in Group G, to keep him fresh for England's last-16 clash with Colombia on Tuesday. France's Just Fontaine holds the all-time record with an astonishing 13 goals in the 1958 World Cup.

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

Central defender Sanchez will be directly up against the England captain and, while Alli was reluctant to discuss the few areas in which the former Ajax Amsterdam player can be exposed, he believes Kane will come out on top.

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.

"I'm getting better with my decision-making and just trying to finish my chances".

Ashley Young, who sat alongside Southgate at the press conference, missed a penalty himself during the Euro 2012 loss to Italy but would be confident enough to take another. In spot-kicks awarded during games, he has saved only three out of 38 and one in his last 15.

He said: "To be honest, I'm not a Jesse, who has his celebrations stored".

"I'm slightly concerned, because as a centre-half who took a lot of knocks to the head I'm not normally synonymous with being a fashion icon", he joked.

"We've got to concentrate on our football, playing in the style we have throughout the tournament, playing with the same mentality, and make sure we show the resilience and play with the freedom that we have up to this point". "This tournament I've changed that and stayed off social media as much as possible".

He said: "We have to focus on the game tomorrow".
