Former captain tips England to win World Cup

"There's some big teams gone out of the World Cup and this could be the year England can go far and hopefully win it", he told Fox.

Any time spent watching Southgate's squad at close quarters reveals a contrasting camaraderie and Lingard feels this can work in the Three Lions' favour at a World Cup that continues to open up unpredictably.

Colombia's leading player, James Rodriguez, remains an injury doubt for Tuesday's fixture, and the 32-year-old Sanchez said: "If there is not James there is another one who can make a difference". "For us, it is game by game, and see where it takes us".

Southgate described England's clash with Colombia as the country's "biggest in a decade", and Lingard said the manager had given his players the confidence to believe they are strong enough to meet the challenge.

Things seem to be riding high for England with every bounce going their way while they sit and watch other top teams tumble out of the tournament.

"Everyone gets on. There's no squabbling in the camp, there's no cliques in the camp".

Neymar shines as Brazil oust Mexico
Brazil won Group E with an unbeaten 2-1-0 record, while Mexico finished second in Group F despite a slight scare on the final day.

While usually those to finish second in the group are handed the more hard fixtures, England have seemingly dodged several of the tournaments biggest bullets, with Belgium, France, Brazil, Argentina and Uruguay all being on the opposite side of the draw.

Speaking about England's new breed on United States broadcaster Fox, Rooney said: "I think certainly the first two games they were excellent. You can't wait to get out there", he remarked.

It is that understanding on the field that will count above and beyond anything else at Spartak Stadium against a talented Colombia side who are waiting on the fitness of star playmaker James Rodriguez.

England progressed to the knockout stages of the World Cup after finishing second in Group G, thanks to their defeat to Belgium in their final group game.

"I think there's another level for us". In training everyone is sharp. There is an optimism in the air that this time we won't exit the World Cup so embarrassingly, we might even go all the way.
