Colombia – England World Cup Prediction
Of course, both teams are aiming for a quarter-final place in the world.
State of form
Author of a catastrophic start in this World Cup 2018, Colombia was able to react to finally tear the first place of Pool H, in front of Japan. Indeed, the Cafeteros had started with a defeat against the Nippons (2-1, penalty + red card after 3 minutes), but the teammates of Radamel Falcao showed character and then overthrow Poland (3-0) and especially Senegal during the third day (1-0).
Despite a huge Harry Kane, the competition’s top scorer for the moment, England finally finished second in Group G behind Belgium. Having mastered Tunisia (2-1), the Three Lions then exploded Panama (6-1), but they sank against a team “bis” Red Devils on the third day (1-0).
The staff for Colombia – England
Colombia has not really changed its plans during the first 3 meetings of this world. Indeed, we still find the very good Ospina in the cages, the doublet Mina-Davinson Sanchez in central hinge, the important Carlos Sanchez sentinel, as well as the arrows Cuadrado and Quintero before, in support of Captain Falcao. The only uncertainty concerns the top scorer of the 2014 World James Rodriguez, out injured against Senegal. Suffering from a “minor edema” in the calf, the Bayern Munich player could leave his place to Muriel.
After turning for his last game against Belgium, England will reinstall all its holders for this match. Positioned in 3-5-2, the English formation aligns a Walker-Stones-Maguire trio behind. In the middle, the pistons are called Young and Trippier. Henderson occupies the sentry spot, while Alli (who returns from injury) and Lingard are tasked to reach the Kane-Sterling doublet ahead.
Probable compositions for Colombia – England (appointment at 19h for the official compositions):
Colombia: Ospina – Arias, D. Sanchez, Yerry Mina, Mojica – Uribe, Carlos Sanchez – Cuadrado, Quintero, Muriel (or James Rodriguez) – Falcao.
England: Pickford – Walker, Stones, Maguire – Trippier, Alli (or Loftus – Cheek), Henderson, Lingard, Young – Kane, Sterling.
Prediction Colombia – England
Despite the return of its leaders, England can be caught by Colombia in the 8th finals and so go into extra time.
