2018 FIFA World Cup, Round of 16

Teams: Colombia vs England

Date: 3 July 2018

Time: 20:00

Venue: Otkrytie Arena

Although the Three Lions lost 1-0 to Belgium in their final group game, they will go into this game with history favouring them as they are unbeaten against Colombia in five previous meetings.

The English beat the South Americans 2-0 in their only previous World Cup encounter courtesy of goals from Darren Anderton and David Beckham in the group stage of the 1998 tournament.

Since Pekerman took charge of Colombia in 2012, they have been unbeaten in eight games against European opposition, but have only progressed from the round of 16 once – in the 2014 edition of the showpiece in Brazil.

England have won only two of the eight World Cup knockout games they have played – the last was a 1-0 win over Ecuador in the 2006 tournament in Germany.

If Tottenham Hotspur striker Harry Kane finds the net against Colombia, he will become the first player to score in six consecutive appearances for the Three Lions since Tommy Lawton back in 1939.

Here's how the two teams line up:

Colombia: Colombia XI: Ospina, Arias, Davinson, Mina, Mojica, Barrios, Sánchez, Lerma, Cuadrado, Quintero, Falcao. 

England: Pickford, Trippier, Walker, Stones, Maguire, Young, Henderson, Alli, Lingard, Sterling, Kane.
