England will play Colombia in the round of 16 at the World Cup in Russia.

The Three Lions were defeated 1-0 by Belgium in their final group stage fixture on Thursday evening, as former Manchester United winger Adnan Januzaj scored a sublime goal in the second half to make it three wins out of three for the Red Devils.

The result means that England finish on six points and a respectable second place in Group G, after a 2-1 win against Tunisia and a 6-1 thumping against Panama.

Group winners Belgium will face Japan in the first knockout round, followed by a potential clash with Brazil or Mexico in the quarter-finals.

England will play Sweden or Switzerland in the quarter-finals, should they beat Colombia.
