The final match of the World Cup 2018 round of 16 sees Group H winners Colombia take on Group G runners-up England for a place in the quarter-finals.

footballexpert.com verdict: England eased into the second round with two wins from two games in Group G – albeit the first having been courtesy of a last-minute header from Harry Kane – but lost momentum as they rested players and lost their final group game to Belgium. Colombia, by contrast, bounced back well from their opening defeat to top Group H with two wins. England will take confidence from the fact they have never lost to Colombia – but the South Americans reached the quarter-finals four years ago and will be hopeful of a return.
