Not sure I'm being too pessimistic, but yes we've beaten the mighty panama, squeezed past the Tunisians rough stuff and made 8 changes and seccumbed to a narrow defeat against Belgium, we've played some fantastic football, lost concentration at times and being lethargic.... 

I can't remove the thought though in the back of my mind the stage is set for falcao the columbian Premier league flop to haunt us by scoring the winner.

I just can't see us winning tonight.

Colombia are an excellent team and were very unlucky to lose to Brazil in the quarter finals four years ago, they have a couple of premiership players wanting to prove a point and at 3-1 to win the game I shall be lumping on.

 

I will be more than happy to be proved wrong but I think they will win by 2 goals.

Agree with all of this

 

Cannot see anything but a 2-0 Colombia win

Fair point but we always seem to get done by current or ex premiership players.

Ballotelli

Moldovan

Petrescu.

People talk down England for good reason, we have won just 1 knockout game in 12 years!!

Colombia have relied heavily on Rodríguez and he may not play.

 

I worry about our defence but I believe we can score more than them.

I think Colombia are better than us, and I think that going forward they have too much quality for our defence. Sadly our defence was also going to be the sticking point when we got to this stage.

 

They have a beast of a centre half as well that has already powered in two headed goals - he'll need watching.

 

I know Southgate will have them prepared, but the youthful freshness that can be such a bonus could turn into naivety and inexperience very quickly.

 

Anyway, we all know we are going out on penalties so let's just enjoy the atmosphere..
