England are now 4/1 joint second-favourites to go all the way and lift the World Cup this summer.

The Three Lions were able to navigate through their last 16 tie against Colombia on penalties following a 1-1 draw after extra time. 

Gareth Southgate's side took the lead early in the second half through Harry Kane's spot-kick, but Yerry Mina's header in the third minute of injury time forced the tie into extra time and eventually penalties.

Jordan Henderson saw his penalty saved,  but Jordan Pickford produced a vital stop as England turned it back around in their favour to win their first shootout at a major tournament since 1996.

Brazil remain 11/4 favourites to lift the trophy, while France are also priced at 4/1.

Harry Kane boosted his chances of picking up the tournament's golden boot by scoring another penalty against Los Cafeteros to take his overall tally to six, and he is priced at 2/7 to pick up the award.

Belgium's Romelu Lukaku is Kane's closest challenge,r having scored four goals so far, and he is  priced at 12/1.
