The eight and the final game of Round of 16 in the FIFA World Cup 2018 in Russia will be between Colombia and England.
Colombia had to face some hardships early on in the tournament. Their talisman James Rodriguez was injured and unfit to start the game against Japan. Couple that up with a red card for Carlos Sanchez and the team had an uphill battle throughout the game.
Even though they lost that tie, Jose Peckerman didn’t let his players lament the loss. They used that defeat as motivation and absolutely bulldozered past Poland.
With qualification in question, they once again produced a smart display against Senegal to usurp the African team.
These last two wins will be a major boost of confidence for the team, and they will want to use this as momentum in the future games.
On the other hand, England has had minimal problems with their route. Tunisia was a decent adversary but was defeated by their exceptional captain Harry Kane.
The Tottenham Hotspur man scored a hattrick in the next game to showcase how far along he has come at the just the age of 24. The team blew past Panama by scoring six goals.
Gareth Southgate has tweaked the formation for this tournament, and the system seems to be working quite well.
Even though the team lost against Belgium in their final group game, it was apparent how competitive they were against the Red Devils.
