Colombia vs England is the last match of Round of 16 knockout before Quarter-finals. England being the favorite, Colombia surely need to dominate the possession. Tournament top scorer Harry Kane has 5 goals to his name so far leading in Golden boot race. English team start the tournament with a win against Tunisia and Panama (6-0). But, a defeat by Belgium put them in 2nd place of Group. Some loop holes to England team were seen in that match which Los Cafeteros have to take advantage of. Whereas Colombia has to face loss in the very first match by Japan, which is now out of World Cup losing to Belgium. But, he manage to top in the Group by winning against Poland (3-0) and Senegal.
Pressurizing in Knockouts is a one factor, managing it peacefully is purely a different task. One of the reasons the World Cup is the best football show on earth is the contrast between the styles of the teams facing each other, with Belgium vs Japan certainly demonstrating this perfectly. Belgium scored highest 9 points in Group and also defeat England by 1-0. A good update from Belgian side – the players are all fit to enter the field. While Japan win one match, one-draw and one-lose and end at 2nd position in Group. One of the smallest (Japan) team in the tournament will face one of the tallest (Belgium). But, size is not always the important factor.
