Gareth Southgate is considering his team selection for the game in Kaliningrad on Thursday, when the section will be claimed, and is expected to make a handful of changes to freshen up his side's approach.
Results elsewhere and the way the knockout draw has fallen so far have led to widespread suggestions the runner up out of England and Belgium would be in a better position to blaze a trail into the latter stages. It states: "Winning is the object of playing any game".
"It just shows that any team can be vulnerable", said Southgate, who more than most Englishmen has suffered at the hands of German footballers.
Of course, that's all assuming England can navigate their way past the last 16 stage; by no means a guarantee with Colombia one of three sides awaiting them alongside Senegal and Japan.
Former England striker Alan Shearer said on BBC One he would make "two or three changes maybe, not four or five".
"From the scan there was no further damage but it is still uncomfortable", Martinez said.

Who wins England-Belgium? And where does all the value lie?
FIFA's Code of Conduct says that a team must always play to win.
So perhaps it is premature to think about potential quarter-final opponents before the Round of 16 has been negotiated.
"So why we are starting to plot which would be a better venue for our semi-final is beyond me, really".
"Because of the next rounds and the opposing teams you are going to meet. You assume there will be more but you might get an injury or something else". Totally accept it could backfire terribly.

What happens if England win or lose?
Now the Three Lions are ahead of Belgium on the table thanks to the fact that the Red Devils have accrued three yellow cards to England's two.
The players' performance will also be a factor in who wins the golden ball (the tournament's best player). "We have to keep building that belief and building those experiences".
Frivolous yellow cards aside, both teams have acknowledged that maintaining momentum is paramount and any suggestion to the contrary is foolish. The final game is their last chance to play for pride and go home with at least a draw or a win.
"We want to keep winning football matches and we want to breed a mentality where everybody in our squad wants to constantly win".
"That´s the reality. We wanted to qualify, we´ve done that". "Now we need to look at our individual players".
