Colombia downplay 'favourites' tag against England

The quest for the World Cup trophy hots up in the knock-out stages from Saturday

Fabian Delph has Gareth Southgate's full support to be at the birth of his child rather than England's crunch World Cup clash with Colombia - although the midfielder could yet make it back to Russian Federation if the curries kick in.

Martinez's Belgium side ran out 1-0 winners against England in Kaliningrad on Thursday thanks to a wondrous Adnan Januzaj goal and despite making nine changes to their previous team that thrashed Tunisia 5-2 in Moscow.

Speaking about England's new breed on United States broadcaster Fox, Rooney said: "I think certainly the first two games they were excellent".

"He's a great finisher", Lingard said, according to the MEN.

LeBron James' free agency may now hinge on Lakers' Kawhi Leonard trade
I was curious as to what lengths Lakers fans would be willing to take to get Kawhi in a trade, so I made a Twitter poll. In the first story that the trio broke on Wednesday there were far more assets mentioned on the Lakers side.

The 22-year-old Sanchez has just completed his first season in the Premier League after joining Spurs in a £42 million pound deal from Ajax and Alli said he had been hugely impressed with the Colombian's performances.

The Egypt global winger was one of the best players in the Premier League last season and was a key figure in the Reds' run to the final of the Champions League.

But the England manager later opted against appearing in a documentary about Euro 96, hosted by ex-team mate Alan Shearer, because he did not want to talk about his miss. No matter what round we are in, we are still going to play the same. "You're going to have to get along with each other when you're around each other this long".

"They're a great side", he said. "For us, it is game by game, and see where it takes us".

Conservative lawyers steer Trump on Supreme Court pick
Circuit Court of Appeals Judge Brett Kavanaugh and Seventh Circuit Court of Appeals Judge Amy Coney Barrett, both women. Earlier in the day Gorsuch, 49, was sworn in as the 113th Associate Justice in a private ceremony at the Supreme Court.

"We want to win football matches, so we're not happy to come away from here having been beaten".

"My father's generation and those before them would view that differently but you have got to be there for your family, I think, and that is very important".

"I think it's very unsafe". He won another game, got Vincent Kompany on the pitch and even if Brazil are waiting in the last eight and they are now in the harder part of the draw, I'd still pick his squad over England's any day. It's a youthful squad, but we've still got those experienced players in there.
