The English side have had some fascinating results in their group stage matches and will put up another fine performance against the South Americans

Colombia lock horns with England in the round of 16 of the Mundial at the Otkrytiye Arena on Tuesday.

Los Cafeteros made their way to the knockout phase - their third time in history and their second successive appearance having had an outstanding run four years ago in Brazil where they made it to the quarter finals before bowing out to the host country.

Despite recording two impressive victories against Poland and Senegal which saw them secure qualification for this round, BetKing tips them at odds of (4.12) to pull off a shocking victory here.

Gareth Southgate’s charges have shown much confidence in the global showpiece so far, though they’ve had to slug it out with easy contenders on their way. Regardless of their 1-0 defeat to Belgium, they’re still priced at (2.15) as slight favourites.

Both teams only saw a stalemate in their last three clashes and a repeat of the same result can be backed at a mouth-watering (3.10) with the same betting firm.

The Three Lions boast of a man with as many as five goals under his belt though he didn’t feature in the final grroup game with Belgium.

Harry Kane put up a fine display in the opening two fixtures and should be backed to keep such outstanding form going in the tournament. Thus, the 24-year-old can be backed to strike anytime at (2.25).

Considering that Jose Pekerman’s men have found the net in all of their group stage ties, it won’t be out of place to back them to score as they entertain the Southgate’s side that have shipped in goals in all of theirs. So, it seems rewarding to back Colombia to score at (1.63).

To see goal action at both ends of the pitch in this showdown appears profitable with a possible result priced at a juicy (2.20).

England can be backed to qualify to the last eight taking into account that Colombia struggled to pose a threat upfront without James Rodriguez. Punters should eke out fortune here by backing a similar outcome at (1.58) with BetKing.
