Seven of England's nine goals so far at this World Cup have come from set-pieces but Sweden's aerial ability could threaten to nullify this option more than most opponents to date.
After England secured passage to the knockout stage, Southgate explained how that mentality had translated into his thinking on penalties.
With the World Cup Round of 16 clash heavily poised at the Otkrytiye Arena, tensions began to rise and tempers were threatening to spill over after Barrios appeared to lash out at the Liverpool skipper.
His playing career was best remembered for that penalty miss against Germany in 1996 - when his tame shot was saved and Andreas Möller scored the decisive kick in sudden death - despite successful stints in the English Premier League with Crystal Palace, Aston Villa and Middlesbrough. They looked confident in defense, and the Colombians were unable to muster much excitement without James Rodriguez. It's a great and completely different test to the one we faced against Colombia.
Belgium striker Romelu Lukaku, with four goals, and Uruguay's Edinson Cavani and France youngster Kylian Mbappe, with three each, look the only realistic threats to the 24-year-old skipper.
Mr Clarke was not the only one backing the England captain to score, with Ladbrokes claiming one in two bets backed Kane to score. And no-one would bet against that tally rising.
Harry Kane gave England the lead with a penalty kick in the 57th minute.
Geiger pointed to the spot, Kane picked himself up, dusted himself down and... well, you know the drill. "Both Southgate and Uribe missed crucial penalties that cost their sides victory".

It was just the second time in eight occasions England has won a shootout at a major tournament, and the first time ever in the World Cup.
England will have just three days to recover before facing Sweden in Samara on Saturday for a place in the semifinals. "Geiger, an American, what a coincidence", Maradona added on his nightly World Cup show for Venezuela-based Telesur broadcaster.
England: Jordan Pickford 8 (out of 10), Kyle Walker 7, John Stones 7, Harry Maguire 7, Kieran Trippier 8, Dele Alli 6, Jordan Henderson 6, Jesse Lingard 6, Ashley Young 6, Raheem Sterling 6, Harry Kane 8.
Southgate's side has struggled to break down teams with a similar approach - needing an added-time victor to beat Tunisia in their opening game and then only scoring courtesy of a Harry Kane penalty in the meeting with Colombia.

Another reason for James's willingness to sign a long-term deal with the Lakers is the team's proximity to Hollywood. James will wear No. 23, the same number he wore in both of his Cleveland stops, league sources have told ESPN .
With Leonard adamant about joining the Lakers either now or as a free agent in 2019, the Spurs don't have much leverage. Per McMenamin, the Cavs have "been in regular dialogue" with James' camp since the season ended earlier this month.
The groups said their goal is to have ICE abolished and get lawmakers to stop "caging migrants" in detention facilities. This comes in response to far-left attacks and mass protests against immigration enforcement.
Gareth Southgate's team won 4-3 on spot-kicks after the World Cup "Round of 16" match finished 1-1 following extra time . England by contrast struggled to beat Tunisia in the first game before putting six past minnows Panama.
