Colombia Vs England: Kane Leads Fight In Moscow
Harry Kane will be leading the line as England take on Colombia in the final Round of 16 clash at the ongoing 2018 World Cup in Russia.
Already, six countries have booked their places in the quarter finals and England will be hoping to join the big boys also by the end of the hostilities as the Spartak Stadium in Moscow on Tuesday.
Having made a positive impression in the early stages of the tournament, England are now looking to reach the quarter-finals of the Mundial for the first time since 2006.
"It is 10 years since we have won a knockout fixture," said the England head coach at his pre-match press conference on Monday.
"For this team, this is a brilliant opportunity to go beyond where more experienced teams have before them. The lads have got the chance to write their own stories."
It is safe to say that the World Cup is now very wide open following the elimination of Germany, Spain and Argentina, but Southgate has chosen to remain modest as far as his team's chances are concerned.
Nobody expects that England will stroll past Colombia as the South Americans on their own are also formidable with veteran forward, Radamel Falcao leading the line.
The Colombia, England duel will definitely be match of tactics as the two teams have shown varying level strengths in getting their goals.
Three of Colombia's five goals at this year's World Cup have come from set-pieces (two from corners, one from direct free kick) whilst England scored more goals (six) from dead-ball situations than any other team in the group stages.
Will Falcao fly like a Falcon with Colombia or Kane will be sweet as sugarcane for England?
