Sarina Wiegman’s side will now possibly be without James for the remainder of the tournament which is a huge blow.

However, morale is still high in the camp after the spot-kick victory and focus will now turn to Colombia who beat Jamaica to reach the quarter-finals. 

England are unbeaten so far this summer and have only conceded one goal while their South American opponents lost to Morocco in the group stage.

England vs Colombia: Team news 

England will be without James who has been the star of the tournament so far as she serves her suspension for being sent off. 

Ella Toone or Jordan Nobbs could be drafted in to replace James with the Lionesses able to show their great squad depth. 

Keira Walsh started for the Lionesses against Nigeria after recovering from her injury and she is likely to line up again this weekend.

Colombia can welcome back defender Manuela Vanegas from her own suspension that saw her miss the win over Jamaica.

Real Madrid star, 18-year-old Linda Caicedo, who has netted twice at the tournament so far, will start.

England vs Colombia: What has been said? 

England boss Wiegman has defended James after she received criticism for her sending off against Nigeria. 

Speaking about the red card post-match, Wiegman told talkSPORT: “She’s young. This is just a split second and she doesn’t want to harm anyone.

“It’s later on in the game, so you get a little bit tired too. It’s such an intense and emotional game that in a split second where you just don’t control your emotions then things happen.

“Of course, she didn’t want to do that, but before she’d even realised it had happened. Very unfortunate. She will absolutely learn from it.”

James herself has also commented on the dismissal and apologised to Michelle Alozie, who was the player she stamped on.
