England Players Banned From Shaking Hands For Health And Safety Reasons

Gareth Southgate says England must "make the most" of their World Cup opportunity in Russian Federation, starting with Saturday's quarter-final against an "older, more experienced" Sweden.

"They could cope comfortably with two defenders, I don't think they've got anything to concern us going forward".

"It's not about England and Colombia, it's nearly every match, they are creating such a hard job for the referees in every match".

England - aiming to add to their only World Cup crown won in 1966 - meet Sweden in Samara Saturday, with the victor to face either Russian Federation or Croatia. We've lost to Portugal a bunch of times, so yeah, I was aware and I'm just really pleased we've changed that.

"We know we have to reach our own standards, which is very close to our maximum like we have done, and that's the only way to win football games at this level", he said.

Jamie Vardy is a doubt with a groin strain that Press Association Sport understands led the striker to have an injection after the match, while Dele Alli, Kyle Walker and Ashley Young also need checking.

England looked set to go through in normal time, before Yerry Mina equalized for the Colombians. I've been criticised for going with my top hand, but as long as you save it, that's all that counts.


Southgate added: "Every single day now when I walk down the street it is always mentioned to me".

The Brazilian has been criticised for going to ground easily throughout the tournament, but statistics show that he is the most fouled player in Russian Federation.

"Teams have done it to us over the years, for many years".

"But, as a team, the way they work together, they are one of the best".

"I don't think they need to play with three at the back against Sweden. It's not straightforward because we won't see everything, but we'll have a feel from what they're reporting and the way they're running, and then we can try to make the best decisions we can".
