Harry Kane says he can score in every World Cup game

Qualification for the last 16 was sealed with a game to spare after they followed up their last-gasp win against Tunisia with a ruthless display in the shellacking of Panama.

England will face Colombia on Tuesday night at the Spartak Stadium, with the victor facing Sweden or Switzerland in the quarter-finals.

"The World Cup is the highest level", said attacking midfielder Alli.

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. As a team we're not scared of anyone. If I had played against Belgium and hadn't scored, maybe I'd be thinking, "I didn't score in my last match". The manager has come in with great ideas, great ideas in the way he wants us to play. In spot-kicks awarded during games, he has saved only three out of 38 and one in his last 15.

"At the moment I think I can score every time we play".

"We created openings to get something from the game, but we have to keep improving. That's what got us here today, so why change?", he said.


Kylian Mbappe made himself a household name with a dazzling performance against Argentina, and he's got the speed to beat almost any defender.

Four years later in South Africa, Fabio Capello's team were humbled by Germany in the last 16 while Roy Hodgson's side went out on penalties to Italy in the last eight of Euro 2012, failed to get out of the group in Brazil before the last-16 exit to Iceland in Euro 2016 that will remain a scar on England's global psyche. I'm confident in myself and what's meant to be will be. I want to go out there and do as well as I can if I'm selected.

"If my goals help the team, brilliant".

England qualified for the World Cup well and powered through their group with a game to spare, before a much-changed team lost 1-0 to Belgium.

Speaking ahead of the clash, Rashford made it clear that he would be willing to step forward in the event of a penalty shootout. "Everyone thought I was going to play today because I wanted the golden boot", he said, "but there's a bigger picture, a bigger priority and that's to go as far as we can and that's what we have to focus on".

'Of course I understand how it works. Recent England teams have looked weighed down with pressure at major tournaments - the most painful and obvious example being in the 2-1 loss to Iceland in the last 16 of the European Championship in 2016 - but not this edition. "It's hard not to support him but as players there are no friends on the pitch, you have to go out and do your job and hopefully Harry comes out on top", added Alli.
