England vs Colombia Tip 1: England to win @ 11/10

England have got Colombia’s number it seems. In the five meetings between the sides throughout history the Three Lions have never lost, winning three and drawing two.

Los Cafeteros will be anxiously waiting on the fitness of star man James Rodriguez. He is their biggest talent and will be a big loss to the Colombians if he can’t recover from a thigh problem.

England vs Colombia Tip 2: Harry Kane to score anytime @ 11/10

Not since Gary Lineker scored six times during the 1986 World Cup has an Englishman bagged five of more goals at the tournament.

Harry Kane has hit his five goals with just five shots on target while also netting in each of his last five appearances – not bad.

He is also leading by example having scored in every game since being appointed captain by Gareth Southgate. If he continues at this rate it will be seen as a masterstroke from the England boss.

England vs Colombia Tip 3: England to win by 1 goal @ 5/2

England’s record in the knockout stages of recent World Cups has not been that great and when they do win it tends to be by a slender margin.

The last time England got through to a quarter-final, also against South American opposition in Ecuador, was in 2006 when a David Beckham free-kick was enough to see them progress.

England and Colombia are also very closely matched if you believe what the media are saying in both countries so expect this one to be decided by the odd goal.
