Jesse Lingard pays tribute to Gareth Southgate

"However, from here if we don't reach the semi-finals you have to class it as disappointing".

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

"I'm ready for everything, whether it is a penalty, a set-piece or anything".

The Three Lions have routinely failed to deliver on expectations at major tournaments since their solitary World Cup triumph in 1966.

England have not won a penalty shootout since 1996, when they defeated Spain in the European Championship. And not forgetting, the penalty misses of Les Ferdinand and Rob Lee against Belgium in the King Hassan II International Cup in Morocco in 1998.

Asked whether England had achieved their objective by finishing second to Belgium in Group G, Lingard replied: "Obviously we're going to have to play the big teams sooner or later". "I was a volunteer, really [in Euro 96]".

Asked what he learned from his first major worldwide tournament, Kane said: "For me, it's stay away from the hype of it all". It is probably braver not to, if you are not confident.

"Maybe the teams who aren't here weren't as strong this time".

"We still have one-and-a-half days to see how he feels, and as always we hope that he will be able to play in the following games". The players rehearse the walk from the halfway line as well as their shot.

Wayne Rooney believes "this could be the year" that England end a 52-year wait to win the World Cup again.

England have been practising penalties since March. There is an optimism in the air that this time we won't exit the World Cup so embarrassingly, we might even go all the way.

Mexico and Brazil's upcoming match moved to FOX 5 Atlanta
This is a courtesy reminder that Brazil lost a World Cup semifinal match in 2014 to eventual champion Germany 7-1. Originally called out for offside, the goal was then given after video review.

If Colombia can keep up their defensive form from the group stage, England could very well struggle to create chances in this game as well.

"He is a great finisher in and around the box, but we have to be aware of it and deal with it", said Lingard. "We've done various different studies and different practices". We want to control the game with possession as well.

"I think there's another level for us". That shouldn't change now we are in the knockout phase.

This is not something Southgate has just started thinking about. A place in the round of 16 already was secure, so players could be rested.

The England manager accepts, however, that such an approach would have been considered unusual in the past.

"Definitely, it's not about luck". I mean: just think about that pressure. There are individual things you can work on within that.

"We have a very hard opponent, a very good side who we respect". We've been trying to own the situation, not let it own us.

However, Loftus-Cheek is not carrying an injury.

Normally known as the Golden Fleece, the pub, in the Manor Park area of the capital, has changed its name and will give away a free beer to guests who say "football's coming home" when Kane scores. Kane is now leading the race for the World Cup Golden Boot with his total of five strikes and he has revealed that his confidence is so high at the moment that he fancies his chances of scoring every time he plays. With some, we shouldn't be interfering.

Southgate, after all, knows how devastating it can be to lose this way. Ultimately you're competing against yourself. Rashford, even at such a young age, wants that responsibility. "Be part of the starting 11 and help the team as much as I can, play as well as I can".
