England captain Harry Kane took over the captain's role from Jordan Henderson before the Federation Internationale de Football Association 2018 World Cup began.

England's shootout record is, frankly, abysmal: six defeats from seven in major tournaments, the exception being against Spain at Euro 96.

The midfielder is now back to full fitness and in contention to regain his starting place in Gareth Southgate's lineup.

"Rashford showed yesterday that he can come in and make a difference to the team with his speed and technique, and he is a goalscorer as well", Eriksson said.

England duly lost to Argentina on spot-kicks and missed out on the quarter-finals.

"Don't give Colombia chances because they have players like Juan Cuadrado that can beat players one-on-one".

There's nothing more important than family to me - family always comes first and always will", Delph had said earlier this month, as quoted by ESPN FC. We can go further.' The game looks like being a niggly affair after the Swedes tried to wind up their opponents ahead of kick-off. In shoot-outs, he helped Colombia past Peru in the Copa America two years ago by blocking Miguel Trauco's effort with his legs.

Even in their wildest dreams, few England fans could have hoped for the World Cup to pan out in the manner it has so far. How heavy will the past weigh on the present? "The depth of knowledge and understanding wasn't so great and we didn't have as much information as we do now". "Up to this point, it has stood us in good stead".

"No, I'm glad he kept me on", Alli said. "I think certainly the first two games they were excellent", Sky Sports reported quoting Rooney.

Jordan Henderson, Kieran Trippier and Kyle Walker could also be on Southgate's list.

"This is what you put all those hours in for", he added. I'm confident in myself and what's meant to be will be.
