Hendo and Trent into World Cup last eight with England

Hendo and Trent into World Cup last eight with England

According to Sky Sports, Vardy has since had an injection in the injured area, and is now seen as doubtful for England's quarter-final clash against Sweden on Saturday.

The spokesman said any bank holiday would have to come soon after the match and would cover the whole of the United Kingdom, and not just England.

Gareth Southgate's England are the only former winners in the bottom half of the draw, along with host nation Russia, Croatia and Sweden.

- Neymar: A selfish brat or misunderstood genius?

The manner of the England manager has certainly rubbed off on the team and the national side is now one that everyone in the country seems able to get behind.

It's no secret that some of the England players are fans of Fortnite. The five-time World Cup winners are 11/4 to add a sixth crown to their belt, but have a tough test when they face Belgium in Kazan on Friday afternoon at 2 p.m. ET. Makes you wonder what we'll be talking about after this one. Or will the game become a war of attrition between two northern European teams who are accustomed to winning with a combination of physical strength and a strong focus on set-pieces? Croatia and Russian Federation have played none, yet the triumvirate of England, Sweden and Croatia did thrive in a 1990s corridor. The Panamanians were so outraged they threatened to boycott the third-place game of the tournament and a leading newspaper's headline the next day read "Fucking Árbitro".

In the other match in England's half of the draw, host nation Russian Federation - riding a wave of euphoria after their shock win against 2010 winners Spain - face a Croatia side inspired by Real Madrid midfielder Luka Modric in Sochi on Saturday.

Little sign of compromise in German govt showdown
Bavarian state premier Markus Soeder too appeared to indicate a willingness to cut Seehofer loose for the sake of the coalition. The CSU's leadership were tight-lipped as they arrived at their party's Munich headquarters to discuss Merkel's deals.

The popular tabloid, known for its provocative headlines, ran with a front-page picture of England captain Harry Kane and the words "Go Kane!", a pun on Colombia's reputation as a drug exporter. It did, though, for Gareth Southgate's team and I am so happy for them.

Next up is a quarterfinal clash against Sweden, and Southgate vowed to keep marching forward for the fans who made the trip to Russian Federation.

He may have to break up the three-man advanced midfield of Raheem Sterling, Dele Alli and Jesse Lingard, as Sterling and Alli have both had a frustrating time in Russian Federation.

In the 1990s they had one, Carlos Valderrama, now Colombia have six.

Colombia were also missing injured talisman James Rodriguez through injury.

England's lack of creativity further back is a problem too. We sat back. Jordan Henderson had been looking so good in that defensive midfield role but started to push on.

The game was bad-tempered and Geiger at times allowed players to get away with dissent.
