England are looking to win their first knockout game at a major tournament since reaching the quarter-finals of the 2006 World Cup.

Marcela Clavija said victory would be extra-special for Colombia to avenge a defeat nearly exactly 20 years ago, even if the match had been long forgotten in England.

England hero Jordan Pickford hit back at Chelsea star Thibaut Courtois after sending the Three Lions through to the World Cup quarter-finals. Goal-scoring chances likely will be at premium, which leads us to believe this will be a hard-fought, but low-scoring, game. The manager has come in with great ideas, great ideas in the way he wants us to play.

Tuesday, they'll have to step on the pitch and face a unsafe Colombia team that many are overlooking, but if England make that mistake, they'll face an early trip home from Russian Federation and again let down a nation that is just again beginning to believe in its national team. "England are a good team but we did not mind who it was we would face", said Colombia goalkeeper David Ospina, on the site FourFourTwo.

As you'd expect, England fans weren't happy.

When Juan Cuadrado blazed horribly over the bar with the goal gaping 10 minutes from time with Colombia's first chance of the match it looked all over for them but there was a fiery sting in the tail of normal time.

England striker Harry Kane was rested in the Belgium defeat but is still top of the goal-scoring charts in Russian Federation, with five goals in two matches. England beat Tunisia and Panama as expected, and then lost against Belgium in the battle of the "B" teams.

The Colombia camp are crossing their fingers over the fitness of James Rodriguez, the top-scorer at the World Cup four years ago, who limped off in their last group match against Senegal with what appeared to be a recurrence of a groin injury.

England were the better side without looking too risky but were then gifted the lead when Carlos Sanchez hauled down England's captain and talisman Kane once too often. We'll know soon enough if Geiger gets another assignment in the quarterfinals, semis or final.

"It would be nice to knock out England as they eliminated us from the France World Cup in 1998", she said.
