But Colombia defender Yerry Mina has revealed that Kane's Tottenham team-mate Davinson Sanchez has been giving inside tips on how to stop the England No 9 from firing England into the quarter-finals.

Marcus Rashford has never taken a first team penalty but has already let it be known that he wants to step up if England find themselves in a World Cup shootout.

The midfielder is now back to full fitness and in contention to regain his starting place in Gareth Southgate's lineup.

"We've been practising and going through strategies on penalties since March".

He said: "The thing I want more than anything else is the players to continue to attack the tournament as we have".

I've always said we've had a chance but at the moment I can't see past Brazil.

Tottenham forward Kane, who has netted every time he's worn the captain's armband for England and has notched five times in two World Cup appearances so far, now leads the race for the Golden Boot despite being rested in England final group stage game, a 1-0 defeat against Belgium.

Southgate himself has painful memories of shoot out failure as he missed the decisive spot kick in the Euro 96 semi-final against Germany at Wembley Stadium.

He made his last England appearance in November 2016, since when the team have been transformed under the leadership of Gareth Southgate.

Trump gets chance to reshape top court
A Tuesday Supreme Court ruling on the president's controversial travel ban made clear how this habit can be used against him. A furious Trump bashed the courts and his own Justice Department, but was forced to recast the ban again.

His experience has informed his own approach now as coach, with a last 16 tie against Colombia to come on Tuesday and the possibility of penalties looming again.

Needless to say, England supporters and football fans in general have taken to Twitter to slate Merson for his over-confidence and his dismissiveness of the Colombians.

Statistics suggest that players have an 89 percent chance of scoring if the team's last two shootouts have been successful.

"For some of them, this will be one of the biggest games they'll have been involved in, but maybe not the biggest".

"We created openings to get something from the game, but we have to keep improving".

"I don't think we lost any momentum".

"We do a lot of bonding stuff to really get to know each other and I think that's important as a team off the pitch, to get to know each other".

Petkovic added: 'Those who know me realise I am not clinging on to the thought of what could be just in this match.
