Dele Alli is back in line for England World Cup recall

England-Colombia

England-Colombia

We have got a lot of lads who take control.

And they could well lose to Colombia in the round of 16.

The tactic was infamously used by Louis van Gaal four years ago when the Netherlands played their quarter final against Costa Rica and it went to pens.

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.
