If fresh legs and fresh minds lead to a performance from his first XI that proves too good for Colombia, England would indeed then have a wonderful opportunity to progress to the latter stages of the World Cup having played a game less than many of their opponents and avoided Brazil.

"Southgate hoped that by involving his reserve team last night he would reinforce the harmony of his squad, close any gaps between first XI and the rest".

"It's exciting. We've got the chance to be the team that changes that record".

Southgate will, of course, insist that he was not thinking about who England might meet in the last eight. "I thought they had the better controlled possession, and the better chances in the first half", said Soutgate. The route we've got now is Colombia, who have been poor and had James Rodriguez limped out of the Senegal game. "It would not be hard to see England drawing and that game going to penalties". At Elland Road on June 7, after they took their time breaking down Costa Rica, Southgate said he had encouraged his players to talk about their lives and the challenges they had faced.

"There is something about tournament strategy that's important but you have to be bold enough to accept that might come with questions", he said. It didn't happen for them tonight, but we don't suffer for it.

"They have some top players, some top attacking players in particular".
