Jesse Lingard is the joker in England team at World Cup

Southgate described England's clash with Colombia as the country's "biggest in a decade", and Lingard said the manager had given his players the confidence to believe they are strong enough to meet the challenge.

England have lost six of their last seven competitive shootouts, and Rashford insists it would be foolish not to be practicing.

After finishing second in their group, Southgate's England team will face the victor of Tuesday's game between Switzerland and Sweden in the last eight if they can beat Colombia.

Southgate is having a similar impact on Lingard and England's other youngsters.

"The thing I want more than anything else is the players to continue to attack the tournament as we have".

"We're aware the margins are going to be really fine in these knockout phases. But I'm coming off the back of a hat-trick and I'm ready to go in a very important game for us against Colombia", Kane told Britain's Sunday newspapers.

Southgate himself has painful memories of shoot out failure as he missed the decisive spot kick in the Euro 96 semi-final against Germany at Wembley Stadium.

Waistcoat sales at a leading British retailer are booming thanks to England coach Gareth Southgate, whose immaculate dress sense at the World Cup has won praise from fashionistas.

He also praised Colombian striker Radamel Falcao, who had an unsuccessful spell at England with Manchester United and Chelsea, but who has returned to form in France.


Four years later in South Africa, Fabio Capello's team were humbled by Germany in the last 16 while Roy Hodgson's side went out on penalties to Italy in the last eight of Euro 2012, failed to get out of the group in Brazil before the last-16 exit to Iceland in Euro 2016 that will remain a scar on England's global psyche.

"I think everyone's happy, everyone has their own banter with each other", he continued.

"We will focus on the game and our performance and everything will fall into place from there".

Alli said: 'We've been practising a lot on the training field.

He said: "Of course I will put my name forward".

"We've always got to keep that in context for the players".

"The Golden Boot would be great but I'm still there - and if we're in the tournament longer it gives me a greater opportunity", he added.

"At the same time we can't get carried away".
