England vs Colombia: Prediction, odds and betting tips
THREE LIONS made the controversial decision to accept defeat against Belgium to finish second in Group G and set up a tie against Colombia.
Although this will be a tough test for England, if they can get through to the quarter finals, they have a much easier run-in to the final.
Both teams to score: 5/4 with Sun Bets
Jesse Lingard to score first: 15/2 with Sun Bets
Harry Kane scored a hat-trick against Panama to take his total to five goals in two games at the World Cup
ENGLAND’s biggest knockout tie for a decade lies in wait against Colombia tonight.
They’ve tactically engineered a path into the ‘easier’ side of the draw – but first they have to get past the dangerous South Americans who have real World Cup pedigree.
Much of England’s preparations for this last 16 encounter will depend upon the fitness of James Rodriguez, who limped off in Colombia’s win over Senegal.
If he isn’t fit to start you really fancy Gareth Southgate’s men at 11/10 with Sun Bets.
England have conceded in every game so far though and it’s 5/4 with Sun Bets for both teams to score.
Jesse Lingard is really emerging as a key figure in England’s attack and looks good value at 15/2 with Sun Bets to score first.
Harry Kane has also bagged five goals from his two appearances so far and is at a punchy 28/1 with Sun Bets to score a hat-trick.
When is England vs Colombia?
