  • Man Utd Pair Insist They Are 'Prepared' to Step Up if England Go to Penalties Against Colombia

Paul Merson insists that Tottenham Hotspur ace Dele Alli must be dropped by England in their World Cup quarter-final on Saturday.

Eric Dier says the unpredictable nature of World Cup football means England will continue to live for the present as they prepare for a quarter-final against Sweden.

Eric Dier hammered home his attempt to wrap up a 4-3 victory after goalkeeper Jordan Pickford saved Carlos Bacca's spot-kick as the new generation overcame what has always been an English hoodoo.

"In this tournament we now have to assess all the injuries and see where we are.

They are a team that I think in the past have been underestimated - we won't make that mistake", added manager Southgate.

"But now we have a chance to reassess and it will be a tough game for sure". We've lost to Portugal a bunch of times, so yeah, I was aware and I'm just really pleased we've changed that. The lads deserve it, they've been brilliant and worked so hard to get here. We have underestimated them for years. "I don't think they'll give us too much trouble".

Gareth Southgate Returned To The Pitch To Thank Fans After Full Time
The hosts continued their remarkable run by knocking out tournament favorites Spain on penalties. The question for head coach Roberto Martinez is whether he'll move to a more defensive posture.

But Gareth Southgate told a press conference England's focus has quickly shifted to their last-eight showdown with Sweden in Samara.

"I grew up there so I was very aware of it", said Dier.

The Home Counties Premier League, whose matches already start earlier, will get under way at the usual time.

"We knew what would get thrown at us and that was kind of silly from him". He had just finished his scholarship and wasn't quite ready for the first-team and the reserve league was an absolute joke, at the time, with a game every three or four weeks.

In a recent interview with the BBC, the team's captain, Harry Kane, revealed that him and the team are enjoying playing "more Fortnite than ever" while at the competition, and we believe the results speak for themselves! Vardy feels a bit with his groin.

"But that will take a good 36 hours.

However, the public feeling towards Southgate today is a far cry from how things were back in 1996, when England were knocked out of the Euros at the semis after he missed a penalty.

"We know the size of the task and we know the difficulty of this task. It looks like it would have been a good one".

"It's a massive win for us, especially on penalties".

The Spurs midfielder was a special guest on Wednesday's edition of the Lions' Den, following his match-winning penalty in the victory over Colombia the previous night.

"Hopefully one day I'll get to play for Sheffield United in the Premier League, hopefully that's a dream that can come true", Walker said.
