Harry Kane Panama hattrick
Considering his recent international form, Al Hain-Cole cannot look past the Tottenham striker when it comes to goalscorers against Perkerman's team

After being rested for the final group game against Belgium, Harry Kane will be desperate to make up for lost time on his return when England face Colombia on Tuesday.

Currently top scorer in the competition with five goals from just two matches, the Three Lions striker is bet365’s 3/1 (4.00) favourite to open the scoring at the Otkrytiye Arena.

Having scored 14 times in his last 11 internationals, the captain must be worth backing at 11/10 (2.10) anytime odds as he seeks to replicate Gary Lineker’s 1986 achievement of winning the World Cup Golden Boot.

Kane’s importance to Gareth Southgate’s team was underlined in the Belgium match, where Jamie Vardy and Marcus Rashford failed to carry much of a threat against a weakened opposition defence.

Both now likely to have to settle for a place on the bench, Vardy is a 7/4 (2.75) shot and Rashford an 11/5 (3.20) to get on target in Moscow.

Instead, Raheem Sterling is priced at 11/5 (3.20) to open his account for the tournament as he looks set to return to the starting line-up.

There is no shortage of attacking talent at the other end of the pitch, where Radamel Falcao leads an exciting forward line for Jose Pekerman’s team.

As Los Cafeteros’ all-time record goalscorer with 30 goals from 76 caps, the Monaco striker offers plenty of temptation at 6/1 (7.00) first goalscorer odds, as well as 12/5 (3.40) anytime.

Falcao is likely to have even more joy if James Rodriguez is passed fit to provide his creativity from attacking midfield, with the 2014 World Cup’s Golden Boot winner also a potentially lucrative goalscorer bet at 7/2 (4.50).

Both on the scoresheet in the group stages, Juan Quintero 4/1 (5.00) and Juan Cuadrado 5/1 (6.00) are also both likely to provide a threat in what promises to be an exciting knockout encounter.

Kane to score anytime at 11/10 (2.10) for a 2pt stake with bet365
