Gareth Southgate: Colombia clash is England's biggest in a decade

Who wins Group G if England and Belgium draw

With Luka Modric leading the way, this has been a solid team, and it's played well in this year's World Cup.

Belgium manager Roberto Martinez has said the Russia 2018 World Cup is "the best he has been involved in" and that the tournament has given an "incredible image of the Russian people" and the country.

There have been two games so far that have produced seven goals in each.

"Had we been in their shoes we would also be quite disappointed because one can sometimes think this is not a part of football but it happens and sometimes you finish a World Cup final on penalties, as in Italy vs Brazil [in 1994]".

Before that process takes place, however, Baloy and Panama have one more match remaining at their first World Cup adventure.

A lot of this depends on the health of James Rodriguez, who left Colombia's match against Senegal early due to a calf injury.

The Belgium global netted 16 goals and made seven assists in the Premier League for Jose Mourinho's men in his first season at the club to help them finish as runners-up to Manchester City in the table.

"However, I thought he was a little bit passive at times".

"This was a game that we wanted to win, but the knockout game is the biggest game for a decade for us so we had to make sure our key players were preserved", said Southgate.

You might be surprised to see this match ranked so highly, and I understand why. Switzerland hasn't gotten past the round of 16 since 1954.

However, nothing went right for Les Bleus as they went home with their tails between their legs having failed to score a goal never mind win a game. "There's nothing more important than family to me - family always comes first and always will", Delph said in May.

What other match could it be?

England fans are chanting "Are you watching Germany" during their final World Cup group game against Belgium. There are some questions surrounding this match too.

England ended up losing to Belgium 1-0 in an encounter where both teams played second-string sides.
