Jesse Lingard: We’ll play with no fear
Jesse Lingard sees no reason why England should change their style of play when they come up against Colombia in the round of 16 at World Cup 2018.
Jesse Lingard scored an outstanding long-range goal in England’s 6-1 win against Panama and is 13/5 to score an any time on Tuesday.
The 25-year-old Manchester United star said: “We don’t need to change too much. No matter what round we are in, we are still going to play the same. We’ll play without fear and with that freedom. That’s what got us here today so why change?
“There are still defensive responsibilities, when you are playing midfield attacking and defending is part of the job.
“But when we are in possession, it allows me to get further forward to get beyond the striker a bit more and get into goalscoring positions.
“It feels like a new revolution. The manager has come in with great ideas, great ideas in the way he wants us to play. The formation suits us perfectly.”
England are in what is perceived as the easier side of the draw and, if they beat Colombia, they will face either Switzerland or Sweden in the quarter-finals, with Russia or Croatia potential semi-final opponents.
