England is advancing in Russian Federation after defending champion Germany was eliminated early and Argentina, Portugal and Spain went home in the Round of 16. Opponents Colombia have won back to back games after a shock loss to Japan in the opener and will be a tough challenge for the Englishmen. This means the likes of Harry Kane and Raheem Sterling will all be back in action.

"The referee disturbed us a lot, in the 50-50 plays, he always made the calls in favor of England". Dele Ali is fit again and should be recalled for the game.

Juan Cuadrado, Marcus Rashford and Luis Muriel followed Kane with successful spot kicks, before Jordan Henderson's effort was blocked by a sprawling Ospina. The trio is blessed with raw pace and natural finishing abilities which can put real pressure on the best of defences.

Managers Jose Pekerman and Southgate move quickly to console the Colombian side after the dramatic finale.

Rodríguez, 26, had carried the strain since earlier in the tournament, but was unable to pass a late fitness test and had to watch from the stands. In the likelihood of him missing, Sevilla man Luis Muriel will come up to the line-up replacement.

President Trump to name second Supreme Court nominee in 2 years
Wade , the 1973 case that affirmed a woman's right to abortion, and would weaken President Barack Obama's 2010 health care law. Similarly, Justice Neil Gorsuch , who Trump nominated to the Court a year ago , is widely seen as a pro-life conservative.

The England boss was pictured planting a kiss on her cheek, clearly ecstatic after the win.

One partner who wasn't in the stands was Kane's wife-to-be Katie Goodland, who is cheering him on from home as she is now heavily pregnant with their third child.

"This team is very strong". But even with the atmosphere similar to an away game, England started strongly.

If there was ever a time to justify his selection ahead of Jack Butland, it was against Colombia and the 24-year-old delivered.

But the South Americans were eliminated in heartbreaking fashion for the second consecutive World Cup after an unlucky defeat to Brazil in 2014, and Mina said it was a massive disappointment to lose against England.

Trudeau visits Regina steel workers on Canada Day
Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau speaks during a news conference in Ottawa , Ontario. "Glad to be here to remind everyone that Canadians stand up for each other.

"He's been fantastic in training for them and he's taken it into the game".

Colombia's hopes suffered a huge setback before kickoff when key playmaker James Rodriguez was ruled out with a calf injury and without him they took a defensive approach and never rarely threatened.

The next test for England will be against Sweden on Saturday afternoon in Samara.

Giant screens showed the match in many cities around the nation of almost 50 million people and in downtown Bogota, where suited lawyers, policemen and street vendors cheered and then commiserated in front of a screen set amid the gray concrete streets, as office workers watched from the windows above. Had Colombia played the expansive passing game that proved too much for Poland during the group stages, they would surely have made life more hard for England, who have always found it tough against opponents who can dominate possession.
