England vs. Colombia – the spectacle is guaranteed
The rejuvenated and inspired team of England opens against the unforgiving team of Colombia in today’s central match of the World Series of the World Championship 2018 in Russia today at 9 pm in Moscow.
For the islanders this game is a huge chance to regain their position on the world stage while the Colombians will seek to consolidate their own and exit the shadow of their South American competitors.
The selection of Garrett Southgate hinted at his possibilities against Tunisia and Panama in the groups, then lost the overtime with Belgium and today is the first real test against Lose Cafeteros.
Radamel Falcoo is far from underestimation. Colombians show good games, relying heavily on static situations where everyone is Jeri Mina with 195 centimeters. The big question before the match is whether the star of the team, Chames Rodriguez, will be recovered after the injury he got in the match with Senegal. However, it is hoped that the coach Jose Pekerman will not risk taking the star from the first minute.

The England camp was delighted with the news that Dele Ali would start as a champion after missing the last two matches against Panama and Belgium. All those who were resting against Belgium, including Captain Harry Kane, are back in the game.
Historically, the “Three Lions” have no loss of Columbia in their five previous meetings. For the last time the two teams played in 2005 when England won 3: 2 after a hat trick of Michael Owen. In 1998, the two teams met in France’s World Cup, winning the English with a 2-0 win against Darren Anderton and David Beckham.
Colombia has reached the elimination for the third time in its history, and in the past World Cup quarterfinals lost to future Brazilian champion.
We are surely expecting an interesting clash, with both teams looking for the victory that promises a spectacle for the fans.
Colombia: Ospina, Arias, Mina, D. Sanchez, Mohica, K. Sanchez, Uribe, Quadrado, Quintero, Muriel, Falcoo.
England: Pickford, Maguire, Stones, Walker, Young, Dele Ali, Henderson, Tripir, Linggard, Stirling, Kane.
