Colombia vs England Prediction, Betting Tips and Preview
In the second clash of the day, Colombia and England will battle at the Otkrytiye Arena in Moscow. This is a game between two sides which are filled with young and talented players that play in some of the best clubs in the world. This outing is bound to provide plenty of goals, chances, and betting opportunities for all the football fans.
Colombia is coming into this match from the first spot of Group H. They started their World Cup campaign in a terrible manner having lost to Japan in the first round of the tournament. After that loss, they changed their ways and went on to win the remaining two games. First, they defeated Poland by the score of 0-3, and in the last round, they triumphed over Senegal with the result of 0-1. Mina scored the only goal of the match mid-second half. This was the third time in their history that they managed to go past the group stage, also, it was their second consecutive. Despite having the same manager as they did in Brazil four years ago, their game does not have the appeal it did back then. The team heavily relays on their star playmaker, James Rodriguez, and if he is not fit or if he is having a bad game, the rest of the team follows. They showed a glimpse of their potential in the clash against Poland and if they could find that playstyle once again, they might go a long way in this tournament.
England finished second in Group G. In the first round, they defeated Tunisia and in the second, Panama. In the third round, they lost to Belgium by the score of 0-1. In the clash against England, it seemed as neither side wanted the win. Both teams played with their bench players and calculated in order to get a “weaker” opponent. Because Belgium finished first in the group, they will face Japan and if they progress further they will run into Brazil. In the game with Belgium, Marcus Rashford and Jamie Vardy were paired in the attack, but they did not do much to hurt Courtois. For that reason, it is likely that Kane and Sterling will replace them and take the attacking spots in the starting eleven. Coach Southgate has been blessed and has no injured players and can rely on everyone for the upcoming match.
The two sides have played a total of two games. Their first came took place in 1998 when England won by the score of 0-2, and their second match was in 2005 when England triumphed by the score of 2-3. Out of the previous five matches played, Colombia has two draws, two wins, and a loss, while England has four consecutive wins and a single loss from their most recent outing against Belgium. The Three Lions showed much more so far in the tournament, but it’s fair to say they’ve had easier rivals on their path to the knock-out phase. Who will prevail, will it be the Latin heart of the European composure, remains to be seen?
Colombia don't have big injury concerns before the match with England. James Rodriguez is not fully fit and he is doubtful for the match. All other players are fully fit and ready for the match.
On the other side England also don't have many missing players for this game. Dele Alli is not fully fit, but we expect to see he in starting XI. Fabian Delph return to Russia and he is available for the match. All other players are available for the match and all of them are eager to go through.
Possible starting lineups
Colombia: Ospina, Arias, Mina, Davinson Sanchez, Mojica, Carlos Sanchez, Uribe, Cuadrado, Quintero, Muriel, Falcao
England: Pickford, Walker, Stones, Maguire, Trippier, Henderson, Loftus-Cheek, Lingard, Young, Sterling, Kane
