Gareth Southgate makes bold calls for Colombia World Cup clash

"So that's what people think, but you never know and in this World Cup it's been proven that everybody can win", Torres explained.

The Golden Boot victor at the World Cup four years ago lasted only 30 minutes in their dramatic 1-0 victory over Senegal that saw them advance through the group stage but he could recover for Tuesday's match.

The attacking midfielder, who was substituted with a calf muscle problem during last week's 1-0 victory over Senegal, has undergone medical scans and could play today against England in the round of 16 at the FIFA World Cup.

The U.S.is the only nation with two referees at the World Cup.

England, after resting eight players in the defeat to Belgium, will go back to the team that beat Tunisia in the final minutes of the first group game.

The other half of the draw includes the fearsome quartet of Brazil, France, Uruguay and Belgium.

Next up, Los Angeles had to figure out what to do with its biggest restricted free agent: Julius Randle . Randle averaged 16.1 points, eight rebounds, and 2.6 assists in all 82 games with the Lakers last season.

The last time England won a World Cup knockout game - or any knockout game - was a 1-0 victory over Ecuador in the 2006 World Cup.

That puts Kane in a good position to collect the Golden Boot for the tournament's top scorer, an honour the Tottenham forward just missed during the last Premier League season, when his 30 goals were second to Mohamed Salah's 32 for Liverpool. Kane has 13 goals in nine games under Southgate and 11 in his seven appearances as England's captain.

Martino said the final score would be 3-2 to Colombia, while Pascarella said 2-1 to Colombia. He'd love to end that scoreless run on Tuesday, if his health allows.

The teams play at 9 p.m. (2 p.m. ET) in the final round-of-16 match of the tournament.

But regardless of the results to come, Rooney also stressed that the fans should get behind the team, which is likely to feature numerous same players at Euro 2020 and the next World Cup. That gives the team the momentum England lacks, Pekerman said. "He brings many skills to the pitch so of course we take him into account and we think he will be able to coordinate well if he has to play". "It is a day to be very proud of these players". "I feel pretty excited because I think [England] can win", he says, "It's obviously a bit hard as I'm in Colombia and I've lived here for nine years now". That's good enough for a solid Federation Internationale de Football Association ranking at No. 6, but Switzerland is hardly a perennial power.

Arsene Wenger was asked to name the team he is backing for World Cup glory - and he named three.
