England's Jesse Lingard hails Gareth Southgate's 'revolution' of team

Tuesday, they'll have to step on the pitch and face a unsafe Colombia team that many are overlooking, but if England make that mistake, they'll face an early trip home from Russian Federation and again let down a nation that is just again beginning to believe in its national team.

After the damp squib of a heavily rotated line-up losing 1-0 to Belgium in their final group game, Lingard is confident England have more gears to go through in Russian Federation so long as they have road left to run.

"I think that's risky, we have to treat each game as the most important", he insisted. Ignoring the practice penalties England had after a friendly against Belgium in 1998, the Three Lions have been involved in seven tournament shootouts, winning only one - against Spain at Euro '96. There probably is another gear we can go to. "The formation suits us perfectly", said the 25-year-old. "You're going to have to get along with each other when you're around each other this long".

Lingard, whose long-range goal in England's 6-1 win over Panama has been one of the highlights of the team's performances, says he is enjoying his role as part of a trio operating behind striker and captain Harry Kane. Only two of them came from the run of play though.

For me and as a team, we're not scared of anyone. The organization has surprised everyone, I think it's given an incredible image of the Russian people, of Russia in general.

"It is a game we are really looking forward to, the sort of match you want to be involved in".

"I think everyone's happy, everyone has their own banter with each other", he continued. "Losing the game might actually benefit England to go further in the World Cup, to be on the right side of the draw which I believe they are".

"So he's desperate to support us but also I think his focus needs be with his family at this time and he has my full support on that". I feel like I am at my best when I am free in my mind, playing football.
