England and Colombia face each other in the round of 16 of the 2018 FIFA World Cup. This is a game between two sides filled with tons of talents and big hopes. All the players will know the importance of this game and that should mean that we are able to witness an outstanding game.
Colombia had a close result against Senegal and thanks to other results in the group, they managed to do enough to get the top spot. This team is very impressive going forward with the likes of Juan Cuadrado and Radamel Falcao playing really well. In addition to that, Davison Sanchez has ensured that the defense is solid. The injury to James Rodriguez has been a big issue and whether or not he will be fit will be a key factor for this game. Either way, Colombia have a strong team and can challenge the best.
Looking at England, there seems to be a great energy around the squad. The team is playing well and the media seems to be behind the players. This is a good thing and it keeps English fans big dream. Many of the players were rested for the final game of the group stages and that has ensured that England will have a fresh squad heading into this game.
Taking everything into consideration, I am going to predict that England wins this game and makes it to the quarter-final stage of the competition. The players from England are fresher and with James Rodriguez doubtful, I don’t think Colombia will have enough to win. We are getting a great price to wager on England to win this game and as a result, the outright result market is the best betting option. In addition to that, I am also a fan of the under 2.5 goals. Knockout games tend to be low scoring so this bet should win.
