Kane admits his confidence is 'sky high' ahead of Colombia

"Thus witnessing an English defeat, particularly in football, a game they claim to have invented, has added importance for their compatriots throughout the United Kingdom".

With both supporting opposing nations only one of them will be smiling at the final whistle. The former Aston Villa player recalls moving into Gareth Southgate's house in central England in 2001 and reflects on how England's coach always had the making of a manager.

England have already suffered at the hands of Adnan Januzaj, who failed to fulfil his early promise at Old Trafford, while Juan Cuadrado is an important part of Colombia's attacking plans despite failing to flourish at Chelsea.

The last addition to the elite group of 12 nations who have contested World Cup finals was Spain when they won the title for the first time in 2010.

However, while many were convinced the Swedes would miss Zlatan this, they've shown that hard work and battling as a team works just as well. "The question is can you come off the bench to do that?" "Everybody says you only get one chance to be in a World Cup, but also there's only one day in your life where your children are born".

I'd be willing to step forward.

Jasper Cillessen was taken off in the 120th minute, with Tim Krul replacing the now Barcelona goalie and going on to save two penalties to take his country through.

So what are the key issues and questions as England's World Cup campaign enters new territory?

The South Americans, whose best finish was their run to the quarter-finals in Brazil four years ago, take on the English in the last round-of-16 match later the same night in Moscow.

"Northern Ireland is my team and I am obviously gutted that they didn't make it", he said.

Manager Southgate admitted England can not be regarded as a top team until they beat top teams.

As you may know, narco-terrorism and the drug industry has ravaged Colombian society and caused the deaths of thousands of people since the 1980s.
