Eng face 'moment of truth' against Colombia: Kane

GETTYEngland have made it through to the last 16 of the World Cup

England have a awful penalty shootout record but Southgate, who missed the key penalty in the Euro 96 semi-finals, has helped change things.

Penalty shootouts have proved to be England's undoing on several occasions - they lost via penalties at the 1990, 1998 and 2006 World Cups, as well as the 1996, 2004 and 2012 European Championships.

The most notable absentee from Gareth Southgate's second-string selection, the tournament's leading scorer, had presented himself for interview post-match looking fresh.

Southgate was asked after the 1-0 defeat against Belgium in Kaliningrad whether his players had started practicing penalties and he replied the process had started in March rather than cramming in everything over a matter of days.

"If there's one things I can instil in my players it is that I want them, in this game, to attack the game and show people how good they might be, and not walk off the field thinking, "I wish I'd just tried things that I had been trying up to this point". But Kane is ignoring all the talk around his own performances and England's hopes of success in Russian Federation after reading too much during the dismal Euro 2016 campaign.

Speaking at his pre-match press conference on Monday, Southgate said: "It is 10 years since we have won a knockout fixture".

Tottenham forward Kane, who has netted every time he's worn the captain's armband for England and has notched five times in two World Cup appearances so far, now leads the race for the Golden Boot despite being rested in England final group stage game, a 1-0 defeat against Belgium.

It wasn't Lingard's first strike of the World Cup. They have created a great team.

In the corridors leading out of the Arena Baltika, the Belgium players from the Premier League greeted their England counterparts like old friends, even those who did not share club loyalties.

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. The figure drops to 57 per cent if they have failed, as England nearly always have. In the 6-1 win over Panama in the group stage, he scored one of the goals of the tournament so far, exchanging passes with Raheem Sterling before curling a long-range shot into the top corner of the net. We have to know who is in charge, who needs to get out of the way, who can speak with clarity to the players.

Alli said: 'We've been practising a lot on the training field.

"I think everyone's happy, everyone has their own banter with each other", he continued.

"We have to focus on the game on Tuesday", he said.

He said: "To be honest, I'm not a Jesse, who has his celebrations stored".
