Sanchez: England far more than a one-man team

  • England will face the winner of Sweden v Switzerland if they beat Colombia

"We didn't see any point in bringing him back too early - he is absolutely fine now", said the England manager who believes Alli has the ability to penetrate the Colombia defense.

After finishing second in their group, Southgate's England team will face the victor of Tuesday's game between Switzerland and Sweden in the last eight if they can beat Colombia.

Gareth Southgate has been fantastic.

"We've been practising and going through strategies on penalties since March. He got it right most of the time last season but we need a bit extra to push for the title".

"I want the players to attack the tournament the way they have, that does not change now we are in the knockout stage".

"We were driving back to our hotel in Malta with some obscene chants being thrown at us from supporters", said the England coach, who notices a change after impressive displays in warm-up games and wins against Tunisia and Panama to start the World Cup. Add Stuart Pearce and Chris Waddle at Italia 90, Paul Ince and David Batty at France 98, David Beckham and Darius Vassell at Euro 2004, the misses of Frank Lampard, Steven Gerrard and Jamie Carragher at the 2006 World Cup and the Euro 2012 aberrations of Ashley Young and Ashley Cole.

FA technical director Ashworth has complied the dossier which reveals that previous England players have rushed into taking their penalties unnecessarily.

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.

It has been suggested that England's second-place finish in Group G has provided them with an easier path to the semi-final, because if they beat Colombia, Croatia or Switzerland will await them in the quarter-finals.

"I don't think we lost any momentum". Friends have told me what he said.

"For some of them, this will be one of the biggest games they'll have been involved in, but maybe not the biggest".

"We've looked at individual processes, individual techniques", Southgate said.

@ChrisEriksen8 you done yourself proud your country and your family and you also make the @SpursOfficial fans very proud you are a wonderful player who always gives his all and hardly ever gets injuried and always runs his heart out for the side.

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