Colombia v England Preview & Offers
Clinical Colombia stand in England’s way in the last 16
Time: 19:00PM BST
Location: Otkrytiye Arena
After successfully negotiating the group stage and finishing in a much more promising and beneficial second place, England’s reward is a last 16 clash with South American outfit Colombia. Gareth Southgate’s Three Lions now sit on the supposedly more favourable side of the draw but they must first overcome their next opponents before even thinking of anything else.
Harry Kane is one of the leading contenders for the World Cup Golden Boot now after his goalscoring heroics in the group stage, which included a hat-trick against minnow Panama. Meanwhile, Radamel Falcao will be out to strike past some of his former Premier League teammates and fire his nation into the quarter-finals.
In what is another sublime last 16 encounter, England are 11/10 with Betfred to triumph and earn their spot in the quarter-finals. Meanwhile, Colombia are highly dangerous too and be backed at 14/5 with Ladbrokes to rally to an impressive victory and send England packing from Russia.
Head to head
The fixture history makes for promising reading for England, as they have never lost to Colombia in five previous meetings. The Three Lions have roared to three wins and been held to two draws in those games.
