Belgium's Adnan Januzaj scores the opening goal during the group G match between England and Belgium at the 2018 soccer World Cup in the Kaliningrad Stadium in Kaliningrad, Russia, Thursday, June 28, 2018.

Another England great, Frank Lampard has suggested England could go all the way after a 6-1 romp against Panama saw Kane claim the match ball on the back of his last-gasp heroics in the 2-1 triumph over Tunisia.

England now meet Colombia in Samara - and if they win will play either Switzerland or Sweden in the quarter finals - while Belgium take on Japan.

England will carry high expectations into its match Tuesday against a talented Colombia team after essentially choosing that matchup by fielding a squad of reserves in its last group game against Belgium.

"He's a fearless manager and he makes big decisions in big times", the Leicester defender said.

"You can not plan the ideal scenario, you've seen big nations already eliminated", Martinez said. Eden Hazard, Romelu Lukaku, and Michy Batshuayi all netted the goals for Belgium as they stunned the Tunisians in Russian Federation.

Despite failing to rid themselves of their second-round curse, Layun was proud of Mexico's campaign in Russian Federation . The same tactic worked wonders for the team when they defeated Germany in the group stage.

"From logistics, it was easier to stay in Moscow because the next game would have been in Moscow with an extra day of recovery, but the only thing we are concentrating on is playing Japan", he said.

But Southgate feels the fact his country last won outside of the group stages at a major tournament in 2006 should override any plotting on the behalf of his youthful and in-form side.

"I think tomorrow's a celebration", Martinez said.

"There is a real understanding among the players and it's an opportunity to face the best teams in the world.

Obviously, they made loads of changes, we made loads of changes, but ultimately we both qualified", he said.

England and Belgium were inseparable in Group G ahead of their World Cup fixture against one another, so much so that for a time all that separated them were yellow cards.

Iniesta himself addressed the announcement, acknowledging that despite not getting the dream ending he wanted. All my board of directors gave me unanimous support, we are very calm.

Coach Roberto Martinez is likely to rest Lukaku even if he is fit to play, explaining that the Manchester United forward knows the team is more important than individual accolades such as the Golden Boot.

Yet six minutes into the second half when the 23-year-old Januzaj shimmied on the edge of the box and sent a ideal shot into the far corner of the net past England goalkeeper Jordan Pickford there was delight in the Belgian camp. Japan had four yellow cards, Senegal had six.

The result brought some vindication for the North Africans, who coach Nabil Maaloul had admitted before the game were demoralized after their defeats by England and Belgium. "Some outstanding individual players but we feel we are a team that is improving".

"We're always talking with our players about discipline on the pitch, avoiding giving away unnecessary free-kicks".

Panama took the lead in the 33rd minute through an own-goal, when Jose Luis Rodriguez's hard, left-footed shot deflected off of Tunisia's Yassine Meriah.
