England advanced to the World Cup quarterfinals on penalties after a 1-1 draw with Colombia on a dramatic evening in Moscow on Tuesday. Thus, he is likely to miss the match against England which will turn out to be a huge blow for Colombia. They are expected to revert to the side that started against Tunisia in their first game.
The England-Colombia World Cup match was at times an ugly game, with Colombia slapped with six yellow cards to England's two.
The only absentees from training were Fabian Delph, who was back in England to be with his wife ahead of the birth of their third child, and Ruben Loftus-Cheek, who had a conditioning session in the gym back at the team hotel.
"We are so unlucky not to go through in 90 minutes", said Kane, who also converted his shootout kick along with Marcus Rashford and Kieran Tripper. "Prediction: Colombia 0 England 1 (AET)".
England could well reach the World Cup final this year.
England were the better side without looking too risky but were then gifted the lead when Carlos Sanchez hauled down England's captain and talisman Kane once too often. One player who could lose his spot in the starting lineup though, is Dele Alli.
Southgate: Bringing on Kane vs Belgium would have been ridiculous'
Negotiate that, and England will face one of France, Argentina, Uruguay or Portugal in the semi-finals. England's Harry Kane is leading the race for the World Cup Golden Boot.
It was the most intimidating atmosphere England have experienced so far this World Cup, the players being jeered as they entered the pitch for the warm up. The reason was not hard to understand: "Belgium played far more creative, imaginative and positive soccer".
For Kane, this is another chance to build his reputation as among the world's very best players and the Three Lions captain will know he can be just as decisive as Rodriguez, whose impact is set to be made by his surprise, confidence boosting inclusion - or by his absence.
- Till date, England have never lost a game against Colombia. He was quickly into the backs of Raheem Sterling and Harry Kane, wanting to dominate with his physique rather than his skill - just as he did for his last-gasp equaliser in normal time. I have a very strong partnership with Davinson Sanchez and Kane will not have an easy time against us.
England boss Southgate should have a full-strength squad to choose from after resting eight players for the final group game against Belgium.
Southgate was an unused substitute for that game, which England won 2-0 with goals from Darren Anderton and David Beckham before going out to Argentina in the next round.
