Germany's emotional state after their World Cup exit

Romelu Lukaku and Roberto Martinez

England's last-16 World Cup tie against Colombia is the national side's "biggest knockout game for a decade", says manager Gareth Southgate. I believe we are as good as the contribution of the 23 players.

Southgate said he had had no preference about who his team would line up against in the last 16, even after Japan surprised by finishing second in Group H and will now face Belgium while England face Colombia.

England and Belgium will meet in a World Cup match that neither team wants to win.

"We were coming up against world-class teams with great players".

He was also able to try out with success Thomas Vermaelen, the Barcelona defender out injured for over a month, and later in the game to give a run out to defensive talisman Vincent Kompany, who had also yet to play in Russian Federation due to injury.

'We are not happy to be beaten but we had double objectives tonight'. "We've not won a knockout game since 2006", he said.

"All those calculations weren't something for us but for the press".

Meanwhile, the second team will go to 2G, a side that only has one of the top nine teams in the world (No. 6 Switzerland) and three teams ranked 20th or lower, including No. 70 Russian Federation.

After the game, the German players had no option but to pack their bags and exit Russian Federation.

Theresa May is back in Brussels today for a summit of European Union leaders, just hours ahead of a clash between England and Belgium on the football pitch. I go back to the fact we're trying to develop a winning mentality and I can't imagine a situation where I talk to the players about anything else. And I think Joachim Loew should take a lion's share of the blame for it.

The 25-year-old striker has just completed his first season at Old Trafford after having signed for the Red Devils from Everton last summer in a big-money deal. We created openings to get something from the game, but we have to keep improving.

And Dixon added: 'I'm not a goalkeeping coach or anything but I think when the ball is struck he's got to go with his other hand and I texted a friend of mine who is a goalkeeping coach and he said he should have gone with his right hand.
