Colombia tie England's biggest game in a decade, says Southgate

‘It’s been incredible, the best I’ve been involved in’ - Belgium’s Martinez on Russia World Cup

"We lost once, and the others were a draw and, going back before that, Sweden have beaten England in big games". I thought they had the better controlled possession, and the better chances in the first half.

"We know that any team that reaches the last 16 is good, we are talking about the best 16 teams in the world", he added. The organization has surprised everyone, I think it's given an incredible image of the Russian people, of Russia in general.

The result ended England's 12-match unbeaten run and set up a round of 16 tie with a risky Colombia side, while group winners Belgium face Japan, but Southgate wasn't second-guessing his team selection.

"We want to be in those games".

Striker Kane has been in prolific scoring form, netting 135 goals in all competitions for Tottenham over the last four seasons.

England manager Gareth Southgate hailed his side's meeting with Colombia in the World Cup last 16 as their biggest match "for a decade" after losing to Belgium last night.

The Manchester City player was in action from the start in England's narrow loss to Belgium's Red Devils in Kaliningrad and left for England to be beside his partner Natalie Delph.

Opec, non-Opec pledge supply boost
Perry will meet Novak on Tuesday, in the context of the World Gas Conference that is being held in Washington, the source said. Analysts at Saxo Bank indicated Saudi Arabia wanted to ease fears of emerging markets about increased prices.

Southgate said his reasoning for changing a winning side was based on keeping his star players as fresh as possible rather than plotting an easier path towards the final.

Success at the Spartak Stadium would highlight the progress in the two years since England's last major tournament ended with a humiliating Euro 2016 exit to Iceland.

"Those who played gave everything and never stopped and created openings to get something from the game", Southgate said.

"Many different reasons", Southgate said of England's knockout struggles. "That's hugely important for the feeling in our camp over the next few weeks", said Southgate.

Japan are top and need just a point ($3.3) against already eliminated Poland to make sure they are the only Asian side to have a shot at glory. I went to two of their games in Brazil [four years ago] - they were incredible occasions. That ensured Colombia and England would meet in Moscow on Tuesday.

"But we also have some really good players who are full of belief and looking forward to this challenge".
