"After his MRI we knew that he doesn't have a serious injury", Colombia coach Jose Pekerman said yesterday. "No one laid on the floor and we stood there when it counted".

Fans in the United States can log in to the Colombia vs. England live stream at 2 p.m.

Some 50 years after its last brush with World Cup glory, after all those soul-crushing defeats, this time around everything would be different. So, we will see what effect making so many changes has on England, but I actually think they will be fine against Colombia.

"As a group of lads, it is a young squad but we still have those experienced players in there and the team spirit is fantastic at the moment".

Moments later, Jesse Lingard saw a near-post run blocked on the doorstep and second-half substitute Eric Dier missed the target with his wide-open header from the ensuing corner kick. But he is also clearly relishing his key role in the England set-up, where he is expected to create for and support Kane, the tournament's top scorer with five goals from his two games.

Wilmar Barrios was the first man to get booked on Tuesday in the latest controversial incident that highlighted the use of the video assistant at the World Cup.
