Albion Star Set For Last 16 Clash Against England At World Cup

Brighton's Jose Izquierdo could be lining up for Colombia against England in Moscow this evening.

The winger has only featured once for the South American side at the tournament in Russia, playing the first 70 minutes of their opening game defeat to Japan two weeks ago.

Izquierdo started in that first game due to Colombia's star player James Rodriguez carrying a minor injury problem. With the Real Madrid winger having picked up another knock in their final group game against Senegal last week, it could open up the door for the Albion man to make his second appearance in the competition.

Colombia narrowly scraped top spot in Group H with a 1-0 victory over Senegal, setting up tonight's clash at 7pm BST in Moscow against a Three Lions side brimming with confidence despite losing to Belgium in their final Group G game.

Tonight's victor will play the winner of today's 3pm kick off between Sweden and Switzerland in the Quarter Finals on Saturday afternoon.
