Competition: World Cup
Market: England win
Odds: 11/10 @ Bet 365
With the likes of Germany and Spain crashing out of this summers World Cup finals, Gareth Southgate’s England side will know they have a golden opportunity to progress through the tournament. Looking to book their spot in the quarter-finals, England will face off against Colombia on Tuesday night.
For Gareth Southgate’s side, although his second string could only finish second in Group G, England will beleive they have a real chance to cause an upset in a tournament that has been blown open. Unsurprisingly one man to watch for The Three Lions will be Tottenham striker Harry Kane. Along with scoring 30 Premier League goals last season, the 25-year-old already has five goals in this summers finals and has now scored seven goals in the seven games he has worn the captain’s armband. This will be England’s 18th game against South American opposition at the World Cup. They have won eight of the previous 17 (D3, L6).
As for Colombia, despite a slow start to Group H, José Pékerman’s side were able to secure top spot thanks to a 1-0 win over Senegal in their last group outings. However, while they may boast a stellar record when up against European opposition, Colombia did not record a touch in Senegal’s penalty area until the 57th minute and we beleive England will possess just to much talent come Tuesday night. Colombian fans will also be worried to hear that Bayern Munich talisman James Rodriguez is unlikely to be involved on Tuesday night. After limping off against Senegal in their final group game, Rodriguez was unable to train on Sunday afternoon and will be a huge miss for The Yellows.
