England’s World Cup last 16 tie with Colombia descended into an attritional test on Tuesday but Gareth Southgate’s men came through it with a historic penalty shootout victory.
However, it came at a cost. Ashley Young hobbled off in extra time, allowing Danny Rose to take to the pitch for the third straight match, as the Tottenham man – rated at £27m by Transfermarkt – looks to build his match fitness after a stop-start season.
Young, Dele Alli, Jamie Vardy and Kyle Walker all picked up injuries of varying severity, which raises some selection dilemmas for Southgate ahead of Saturday’s hotly-anticipated clash with Sweden on Saturday.

Manchester United man Young has not been at his best throughout the tournament; his set-piece delivery has been broadly fine but he often slows England down by cutting inside.
Rose marauding down the left could offer a better balance and with his club team-mate Kieran Trippier excelling on the right, the duo could whip balls in for fun to trouble the Swedes.
That’s why we’re putting the question to you; should Southgate make the change and bring in Rose, or get Young back to relative fitness and keep changes to a minimum?
