The World Cup is turning out to be an unpredictable beast. Today, all eyes here will be on England, as Harry Kane & Co attempt to make progress to the quarter-finals. Expectations, once rather low, have been raised by some moderately pleasing performances in the group stage – and perhaps just as much by the fact that the “big” teams in England’s half of the draw have been dispatched.
Whatever happens, Gareth Southgate has presented himself and his team well: even if England don’t lift the trophy his reputation as manager has been enhanced. The English team is facing Columbia tonight, with Bayern Munich Star, James Rodriguez to watch out for though slightly injured.
Based on statistics and team pedigree, football pundits believe England should have it to the next round.
Meanwhile before that match, Sweden and Switzerland will sweat it out this afternoon to know who goes to the round of 8, but more people are rooting for Switzerland but it’s going to be tough as Sweden is also a great football nation.
