Waistcoat sales soar as England coach Southgate sets trend at World Cup

  • England fans have been warned to behave after an alleged fight with Germany

England's path to the final - should they beat Colombia - would be either Switzerland or Sweden in the quarter-finals, and then Croatia or Russian Federation in the semis.

England have lost six of the seven penalty shootouts in which they have participated.

Sweden's World Cup has been a odd one so far: lucky to beat South Korea with a penalty in their first game, unlucky to lose to a 95th minute goal against Germany and totally convincing to destroy Mexico 3-0 in their last match.

Southgate wore a navy blue three-piece suit from M&S at every England group game, despite sweltering summer heat in Russian Federation.

He has been practising penalties and certainly there were no problems against Panama.

This game is exactly the type England normally come up short in, but there's something about this year which is getting us all believing.

"But the gaffer spoke to me and said the Belgium match was a chance to use fresh legs".

Sampaoli could decide to start the game without a natural striker, leaving Gonzalo Higuain and Sergio Aguero both on the bench. Simply put, the Frenchman hasn't been scoring goals and he brings very little to the table apart from that.

Alli missed England's second Group G game against Tunisia with a thigh injury and sat out the 1-0 loss to Belgium in their final match in the section.

"During the World Cup he has become a fashion icon".

England have projected this World Cup as a fresh start for a new generation but the team's record of failure in penalty shoot-outs may not be so easy to forget.

Elsewhere at England's team base, Marcus Rashford and Jesse Lingard played a game of bowling in front of the cameras, laughing and having a good time.

The tournament is considered wide open following the elimination of Germany, Spain and Argentina but Southgate refuses to get carried away with his team's chances.

Passion and excitement for the national team has waned in recent years, thanks in no small part to a group-stage exit at the last World Cup and the galling Euro 2016 defeat to Iceland. There are the players who take penalties regularly, who have their own routine and who are able to change depending on the goalkeeper, and others who don't take them as regularly and need to practice one or two stock penalties. "This tournament I've changed that and stayed off social media as much as possible". For some of them, this will be one of the biggest games they'll have been involved in. The route we've got now is Colombia, who have been poor and had James Rodriguez limped out of the Senegal game. "I used to just dribble and stay wide and now I'm in the box more and getting more opportunities". "I'd be willing to step forward", he said.
