Penalties it is! Keep following us for live updates. 

119:00 Final minutes here, looks as if it will go to penalties.

117:00 Cuadrado smashes Danny Rose and gets a yellow card.

112:00 Rashford on for Walker. 

107:00 Colombia look much better fitness wise also.

Half time in extra time here. England look shattered and Colombia have been much better. 

100:00 Corner to Colombia!

94:00 Colombia continue to strive forward, much different approach to how they opened the game at the start. 

90:00 Extra time is underway, both teams will receive an extra substitution due to the extra time, England need more creativity in midfield whilst having a partnership of Dier and Henderson.

We're heading to extra time. Colombia will fancy themselves now after gaining momentum from their late equaliser. For England, this is a massive test of character. They controlled the game for 80 minutes and just let the tempo drop late on. 

93:00 Goal for Colombia!!! Mina scores from a corner. Desperate defending from Trippier.

90:00 Five minutes added on!

86:00 Pickford saves Falcao's shot with ease.

81:00 Cuadrado rockets Colombia's first real chance over the bar, poor effort from the Juve man.

79:00 Dele Alli is replaced by Eric Dier, England will look to see out this game with a more pragmatic approach. 

76:00 Game is opening up now as Colombia look to attack. 

71:00 England are ahead comfortably, Colombia look like they may have lost the run of themselves. Their ill discipline may have edged out any way of coming back as they don't look like a focused team. England also look level headed and calm at the back. 

65:00 This game has turned into a scrappy one, six yellow cards have been handed out so far.

62:00 Dele Alli misses a decent chance. 

56:00 Goal!! Kane puts it past Ospina, advantage England.

53:00 Penalty England!! Carlos Sanchez pulls down Kane during a corner.

52:00 England fail to make it count as Davinson Sanchez has Young's cross covered. Corner England.

51:00 England have a free kick in a decent position.

45:00 Game kicks off for the second half! 

Half time here in Russia. Let's hope the second half brings a more inspiring performance from both sides. Join us after the break. 

45:00 + 3 Delle Alli limps off the field injured, he hasn't been at his best today, perhaps he's not fit. 

45:00 Three additional minutes have been added on.

41:00 Trippier makes a good connection but puts it to the left of the goal.

39:00 Jordan Henderson is down in the box as Barrios nudges him. Barrios receives a yellow card.

37:00 Free kick England in a dangerous area.

35:00 Colombia enjoyed a spell of possesion however they fail to deliver an end product.

32:00 Quintero scuffs a shot wide, no score, here at the Spartak Stadium.

27:00 Trippier fires the ball in from a corner but it's headed away by Mina.

26:00 Ashley Young floats the ball in from a free kick hoping to find Harry Maguire but England get a corner.

22:00 Mojica fires a cross straight out of play after good build up by the Colombians. 

20:00 Twenty minutes gone and it is fair to say although England may have looked better going forward, both sides have been evenly matched so far. 

15:00 Kane fails to convert a cross from Trippier, by far the best chance from either side so far.

13:00 Brilliant tackle by Trippier on Mojica to stop the Colombian attack.

10:00 Free kick to Colombia as England were pushing in the box.

09:00 Sterling fails to find Lingard in the box but England have a corner. 

06:00 England look the more dangerous side here after the first 6 mins however, that is not iwthout saying Colombia have looked solid in defence. 

00:00 The game has been kicked off! We are underway here in Russia.

The anthems are underway!

The players are leaving the tunnel and the Spartak Stadium is buzzing as it holds its last World Cup game!

Big blow for Colombia as James Rodriguez is not fit enough to feature in the game. It looks as if he is absent from the bench also. 

The teams are out.

Colombia: Ospina, Arias, Minas, Sanchez, Mojica, Barrios, Sanchez, Lerma, Cuadrado, Quintero, Falcao.

England: Pickford, Walker, Stones, Maguire, Trippier, Alli, Henderson, Lingard, Young, Sterling, Kane.

Over in the fixture that will dictate who the winner of tonight's clash plays in the last eight, Sweden and Switzerland can't be separated currently, 0-0 after 55 minutes.

It remains to be seen whether Fabian Delph will be involved tonight after flying home for the birth of his child. Other than that England have a fully fit squad, with many expecting Dele Alli to return in midfield ahead of Ruben Loftus-Cheek, having missed the last two games through injury.

However, if England have reasons to be optimistic, than Colombia definitely do to. England's record of choking at major tournaments has been very prominent in modern times. Even with the golden generation of players England failed to get passed the quarter finals. A slip up against Colombia would not be a suprise for the neutral fan in many ways given England's history at tournaments. This is all not to say Colombia don't have a decent team either. Colombia's talisman is James Rodriguez, in the final group game, he was taken off injured after 30 mins and looked in doubt for this tie. However, his injury is not as bad as expected and he will likely feature against England. England will also need to be weary of Radamel Falcao. Although after disappointing spells in England, Falcao is a well cultured striker who possesses the ability to punish opponents with his killer instincts. 

England go into this game with much optimism. With Harry Kane leading the line, English fans have reasons to be optimisitic. So far the Tottenham Hotspur striker has scored five goals in two games for England. Kane will definitely be hoping to not only win the World Cup this summer but also win the Golden Boot. He has established himself as one of the most prolific strikers in the world over the last few years and England's hopes will fall on his shoulders. Another name worthwile mentioning is Jesse Lingard. The Manchester United attacker has come of age this season and put in decent performances for England in this competition. He also scored a beautiful goal against Panama in the group stage and he is definitely one to watch.

So many top nations have already been eliminated from the tournament. Germany were unable to make it past the group stages, Argentina were knocked out by France, Portugal were knocked out by Uruguay and Spain were knocked out by hosts Russia on penalties. This still doesn't mean that it wont be difficult to win the tournament. Although a disappointing performance against Denmark, Croatia have emerged as a well balanced side lead by Luka Modric and they have put themselves in contention. Brazil have not been at their best either but they definitely posses the talent in their squad to go all the way. France are a star studded squad and like Brazil they have all the talent that is needed. Uruguay are like Croatia due to the fact they have a well balanced team and are able to grind out results. Belgium have been on form this tournament and look very dangerous. Surely the winner of this tie would consider themselves capable of rubbing shoulders with the likes of Belgium, Brazil, France, Uruguay and Croatia.  

This is a clash both sides will be relishing as the winner will have perhaps their most easiest route ever to a World Cup final. The winner of this tie will face either Switzerland or Sweden in the quarter-final. You'd fancy both England and Colombia to advance passed either Sweden or Switzerland. Should it be this straight forward, the sides in this tie would meet either Croatia or Russia in the semi-final. Some England fans will believe that this is their greatest ever chance of seeing their country win the World Cup.
