England, historically bad in penalty kicks on the big stage, dramatically prevailed over Colombia 4-3 on spot kicks after a 1-1 tie to advance in a major knockout competition for the first time since 2006. "So we still have one and a half days to see how he feels".

Fans from Reading, Morcambe and Stockport hung St George's flags on the wall and recited the full back catalogue of fan anthems, from Vindaloo to Three Lions and World In Motion. Nobody qualifying for the World Cup last 16 gets lucky.

England lacked such a creative force and their captain surged forward looking to change things. Let us know in the comments section.

During England's clash with Colombia, on around 40 minutes, Three Lions midfielder Jordan Henderson looked to have been headbutted by Colombia player Wílmar Barrios - but no card was given, just after a free-kick was awarded to England on the edge of the box.

According to the Mirror, England could turn to Nick Pope to save any spot kicks, substituting him on for Jordan Pickford, after being impressed by the Burnley keeper's ability to save penalties.

Southgate described the win as fantastic, adding: "I think we deserved it as well".

Rodriguez was top scorer at the 2014 World Cup, scoring six goals and weighing in with two assists as Colombia reached the last eight before losing to hosts Brazil.

"But we have played tough matches that have made us stronger, more confident and with more belief in ourselves". The manager has come in with great ideas, great ideas in the way he wants us to play.

England has the joint-youngest team left in the tournament along with France, and the team with players who have the fewest global appearances. We always give everything for our country. "It's such an honour to play for Colombia". But Goal.com reports that John Stones may be a doubt after picking up a calf injury.

Dele Alli is also back in the team after missing the past two games following a thigh strain he picked up in the opening 2-1 victory over Tunisia. The Daily Telegraph says that head coach Jose Pekerman was "very worried" about Rodriguez's injury and Colombia "will be holding their breath" for news on the 2014 World Cup Golden Boot victor.

And asked whether England can start dreaming of glory if they beat Colombia, Rooney said: "I think we should be dreaming now".

England was always the more purposeful side but they lacked the key final ball and needed a gift to take the lead. Yerry Mina popped up from a corner in the third minute minute of additional time to head home past Pickford.

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.

In Colombia, the live stream starts at 1 p.m. Colombia Time, and in the United Kingdom, that start time will be 7 p.m.
