England v Colombia preview

England stumbled over the finish line in their last 16 clash against Nigeria in Brisbane on Monday morning, eventually winning on penalties to progress from a match they probably didn’t deserve to win.

Lauren James received a red card for the Lionesses in the second half before the match was sent to extra time and converted penalties from Bethany England, Rachel Daly, Alex Greenwood and Chloe Kelly saw England through to the last eight.

Sarina Wiegman’s team will need to improve if they are to make it their third World Cup semi final in a row, but their 6-1 win over China in the final group match showed what England can do when on song.

Monday’s match was not England’s first unconvincing display, having also shown signs of shakiness in their opening two group stage games as they crept over the line in 1-0 wins over Haiti and Denmark.

The Lionesses take on a Colombia side who defied their odds and exceeded all expectations in reaching the quarter finals of the World Cup for the very first time.

Nicknamed ‘The Powerpuff Girls’, the South American side reached the last eight by beating Nigeria 1-0 in their Round of 16 match, with Catalina Usme scoring the only goal of the game early in the second half.

Nelson Abadia’s side shocked the world by finishing top of Group F, which contained two-time World Cup winners Germany, beating last year’s Euros runners up 2-1 in their second group game via a 97th minute winner.

That, partnered with their opening day victory over South Korea, all but ensured the Colombians’ place in the knockout round.

England and Colombia have met before on just one occasion, coming in a group match in the 2015 World Cup, when the Lionesses prevailed 2-1 winners in Montreal through goals from Karen Carney and Fara Williams.

England v Colombia betting tips

England weren’t impressive in their victory over Nigeria, needing a penalty shootout so drag themselves across the finish line, and talkSPORT BET are offering 11/1 odds on the Lionesses to win on penalties again on Saturday.

Alternatively, for those who thing Sarina Wiegman’s side will get the job done slightly sooner, with a 2-1 England win in 90 minutes boosted to 17/2.
