Delph vies with Adnan Januzaj of Belgium during the 2018 FIFA World Cup Russia group G match between England and Belgium at Kaliningrad Stadium on June 28, 2018 in Kaliningrad. He came off at half-time in Thursday's game against Belgium with a calf problem but it's not thought to be serious and he should be in contention for the match against Colombia in the last 16. A collection of sides sufficiently intimidating that in the first half, Roberto Martinez seemed not to want to win, his team counter-attacking with all the speed of a 1967 Volga negotiating the foothills of the Urals.
"It's exciting. We've got the chance to be the team that changes that record".
Gareth Southgate granted Delph permission to leave the squad ahead of the tournament, though he is expected to return to Russian Federation on Sunday and be available for England's round of 16 match against Colombia in Moscow on Tuesday. The organization has surprised everyone, I think it's given an incredible image of the Russian people, of Russia in general.
England's returning stars must now perform in Moscow or their manager will face a mighty backlash. "They pose you different technical and tactical challenges as we had (against Belgium)".
Southgate will, of course, insist that he was not thinking about who England might meet in the last eight.
I've always said we've had a chance but at the moment I can't see past Brazil. "We lost once, and the others were a draw and, going back before that, Sweden have beaten England in big games".

Senegal vs Japan preview: All to play for in Group H
Goals are rarely in short supply when Poland play as their 10 qualifiers averaged more than four goals. Although luck has nothing to do with how well England are playing, albeit against poor opponents.
Both teams started the match with their second string side and played predictably in the first half as the duo know they have progressed into the next stage.
Japan are top and need just a point ($3.3) against already eliminated Poland to make sure they are the only Asian side to have a shot at glory.
"But we had to make a decision we felt gave us the best opportunity preparing the whole squad for that game and that's what we tried to do".
Even if the strategy backfires, it is hard not to admire Southgate for the singlemindedness he continues to display.
Again he stressed the importance of giving as many players as possible minutes on the pitch, and the positive effect that has on squad morale.
'But if we believe it's the right thing to do then we stand by it'.
