Messi and Ronaldo have already exited the tournament, but Kane is gearing up to face Colombia on Tuesday night.

"Everyone has the level to play and be here; I have the full confidence (we) will work as a team to achieve the result that will take us to the next phase".

So, for this team, this is a brilliant opportunity to go beyond where more experienced teams have gone before.

"He's a player, as we've seen, with outstanding set-play delivery and technique", said the Three Lions' manager. "It's more if you feel comfortable taking one, which I do, that's the way you go about it".

"But, for me, I think again it's a bit of perspective in life because everybody says you only get one chance to be in a World Cup, but also there's only one day in your life when your children are born".

England have been practicing penalties regularly in training, and Rashford says he feels confident about his chances in a shootout.

"We will focus on the game and our performance and everything will fall into place from there".

Cristiano Ronaldo says 'not the time' to discuss Portugal future
He had scored just one goal in each of the last two World Cups in South Africa and Brazil, and both came in losing efforts. The goal brought extra pressure on Portugal who were already finding it tough to break Uruguay's defence.

Kane insisted that confidence was high in the England camp and that he has not been deterred by his side's 1-0 defeat to Belgium in the final game of the group stages.

That is an aspect of the game that the England coach's tactics requires given his use of three forward-looking midfielders.

"It's a youthful squad but we've still got experienced players in there and the team spirit is fantastic at the moment - everyone has come together and is really bonding".

"We said we didn't want this tournament to take hold of us and push us around".

Southgate's inventive approach as England manager has seen him implement a new 3-5-2 formation. "We know our ranking of players, but there is a lot of football before we get to that point".

Ruben Loftus-Cheek deputised for the Tottenham Hotspur man in those games, but while Southgate has yet to name his team, it is likely that Alli will return alongside Jesse Lingard and Raheem Sterling as part of a trident supporting striker Harry Kane.

Fabian Delph is the only absentee from the England squad that travelled to Moscow yesterday having returned home to be with his wife, who is due to give birth. He's buying his wife curries and all sorts of things to try and aid the speed of process.
