Who are the players to look out for?

With the England skipper openly vying for the tournament’s golden boot, Harry Kane (and his goal tally) is certainly worth keeping an eye on. He’s proved deadly at penalties, a threat at England’s revered set-pieces, and has somehow managed to appear level-headed despite the dual responsibilities of being England’s captain and main goal threat.

As the top goalscorer from the last World Cup, Colombia’s James Rodriguez could be a key threat to England. However, the Real Madrid player might have to sit on the sidelines in upcoming games: he was substituted with an injury 30 minutes into the team’s match with Senegal.
