England in the World Cup 2018

The FIFA World Cup of 2018 has begun in Russia and we’re already on the verge of starting the Quarter Final matches. Only 8 national teams are still in the tournament and have a chance on being crowned as the World Champions. England is one of those teams.

England has not been very good in the World Cup of the last few editions. Their golden generation with superstars like Frank Lampard, Steven Gerrard, Wayne Rooney, David Beckham, John Terry along with other fantastic players never reached the Semi-Finals of a World Cup. With the hope of finally winning the World Cup again after 1966, the FA appointed Gareth Southgate as their manager in November of 2016. A few days before the World Cup, Gareth Southgate announced the squad for the tournament where he abandoned a host of experienced campaigners in favor of younger faces. He also named Harry Kane the team captain for the tournament.

England was drawn in Group G along with Belgium, Tunisia, and Panama.  In the first match, they faced Tunisia and won 2-1. Harry Kane has England the lead in the 11th minute. But Sassi equalized for Tunisia from the penalty spot in the 35th minute. Just when it seemed the match would end with a draw, Kane scored on the 90th minute of the match to earn all three points. England had more possession throughout the match with more shots on goal and deserved the win completely.

On the second match, England faced Panama. Harry Kane scored a hat-trick for his country with two of them coming from the penalty spot. Jesse Lingard scored a goal and young defender John Stones scored two goals which gave England a 6-1 win. Undoubtedly, England was the better team and actually looked like a team that wants to win the World Cup. With that win, England had assured a place at the Round of 16 of the World Cup.

On the last match of the group stage, England and Belgium both decided to play their B team to give their main players some rest before the knockout stage. The match could’ve gone either way and England lost the match 0-1.

England had to face the Group H champion Colombia for the Round of 16. Colombia played a little physical in that match and five of their players received a yellow card. Harry Kane scored from the penalty spot again to give England the lead. But on the last few seconds of the match, Yerry Mina scored the equalizer for Colombia. That led the match to extra-time and to the tie-breaker. England won the penalty-shootout 4-3 to go through to the Quarter-Finals.

This was the first time England won a penalty-shootout in the World Cup after defeats in 1990, 1998 and 2006. England will be playing in the Quarter Finals of the World Cup after 2006 and has a chance to play in the Semi-Final after 1990. England has been quite solid in the World Cup and is currently one of the top favorites to play in the finals of the World Cup. If they are able to beat Sweden in the Quarter-Final and Russia/Croatia in the Semi-Final, they can play in the Luzhniki Stadium to win the World Cup.
