England vs Colombia: Five players volunteer to take penalties in shootout scenario

Shannon Reynolds | 03 July, 2018, 11:59

"We had good news after his medical tests".

Colombia's James Rodriguez could be fit in time for their World Cup round of 16 game against England as he races to recover from a leg injury, coach Jose Pekerman said on Monday.

"We still have one-and-a-half days to see how he feels, and as always we hope that he will be able to play in the following games".

Pekerman said Luis Muriel, who had replaced Rodriguez against Senegal, was an option once more should the midfielder be ruled out.

"I only can say that it's attractive to be here, to be able to play against England, and I think all my team-mates are ready to play and give everything". This is England. This is how we should play.

The team has previously said a swelling was found in Rodriguez's calf muscle.

England is well rested entering this match after fielding several reserve players in the 1-0 loss to Belgium to close out the group stage.

"This gives us an important opportunity because we have played very tough, decisive matches until now", Pekerman said. I can only say it is lovely to be here and to play against England. "This has made us stronger, more confident and we believe more in ourselves".

Eriksson twice led England to the World Cup last-eight stage during his reign as manager, and he has been impressed with Gareth Southgate's squad so far in Russian Federation.

A win against Colombia would leave England among as the favourites to reach the final from their side of the bracket, and the Three Lions' all-time leading goal scorer said the young squad have the ability to take the game to the South Americans.

"Of course, I can see everybody is more excited as the team progresses, but we have to think separately of everybody else, otherwise we just get carried away on the wave of emotion and not thinking clearly about what we have to affect, focusing on performance".

"When you play against Brazil you have to accept that they are the best team in the competition", said Belgium boss Roberto Martinez.
