Colombia vs England confirmed XIs: James Rodriguez fails late fitness test



We are together, more experienced and a stronger squad of players than we were in Brazil.

The team has previously said a swelling was found in Rodriguez's calf muscle. "They've been exciting, young, great energy, playing with a lot of freedom", Rooney said of England's chances while speaking to ESPN FC on Monday at his introductory news conference with D.C. United.

And when he awarded England a second-half penalty, Geiger took too long to deal with the Colombia players haranguing him and protesting the decision.

Expected Crowd Turnout: With its last hosting in this FIFA World Cup 208, Spartak Stadium is expected to be a jam-packed affair, as Colombia meet England, with a total crowd attendance of 44,800.

"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. That gives the team the momentum England lacks, Pekerman said.

England's hero Eric Dier.

First of all, why is Carlos Sanchez trying to grapple with Harry Kane in the penalty area like it's the last slow dance at the school disco and he has never kissed someone before?

Standing in Kane's way is his Tottenham Hotspur teammate Davinson Sanchez, likely to start at center-back for Colombia. "We have to do our job and hope Harry will come out on top".

Colombia's Football Federation confirmed on Saturday that "James Rodriguez underwent a scan today which showed that he is suffering from minor edema, but that there has been no muscle tear". England fans and players have long anxious about the team's poor run in shootouts, without a win since 1996, but the team has been working on psychological techniques to cope with the pressure and Young said he'll volunteer if needed. Southgate has been looking to other sports like basketball and American football for insights into how players can deceive the opposition during a free kick or corner. As well as incorporating elements of play into even the duller parts of training, like a warm-down - he had players racing inflatable unicorns in the pool - the coach had players practicing penalties ahead of the Colombia game. "If I'm on the pitch, I want to take one. I will try to stop him". "We should now be the most positive we have ever been", Gary Neville told ITV following England's loss to Belgium last Thursday.

That would prove the last qualifty chance before the game went to penalties, in which England had not won since 1996.

It was a stunning end to normal time that left England ragged and reeling.
