England's history-making penalty shootout triumph over Colombia in photos

James was unable to recover in time, and was unavailable for the matchup against England.

"I think we've always underestimated them", Southgate said.

It was the most intimidating atmosphere England have experienced so far this World Cup, the players being jeered as they entered the pitch for the warm up.

Girlfriend Megan is out in Russian Federation to support Pickford, and last night posted two pictures of herself on Instagram, one before and one after the penalty shootout.

The ex-Three Lions hitman was caught during an off-air rant in the BBC studio in Moscow last night, berating the Colombian players for their dirty tactics following the victory.

Maradona's Argentina were knocked out in the round of 16 after losing 4-3 to France, while England advanced to the quarter-finals and face Sweden on Saturday (Sunday NZ time). He obviously hates YOUR football team and has no interest in synchronised swimming.

A brief screen outage in the closing minutes of normal time added even more drama to the evening's activities.

It looked as though the Three Lions, eliminated on penalties in 1990, 1998 and 2006, were heading for more heartache when David Ospina saved from Jordan Henderson.

Maradona, whose celebration of Argentina's dramatic win over Nigeria that sealed a place in the knockout stages will provide one of the lasting memories of Russian Federation 2018, was particularly scathing of Geiger's decision to award a spot-kick to England when Kane was dragged to ground by Carlos Sanchez.

Eric dier scored the winning penalty despite a Jordan Henderson penalty miss thanks to Jordan Pickford's brilliant save. In all of global football, England have the worst record in shootouts, losing three and winning none.

She went to the game with other wives and girlfriends of England stars, including Rebekah Vardy, Charlotte Trippier and Harry Maguire's girlfriend Fern Hawkins. "Our list of five takers altered because of the changes we made but we had some young players, who showed resilience under pressure".

The pair have met at two World Cups in the past, with both matches ending in a draw.

He eventually regained control as the game moved into extra-time but, in a World Cup that has seen some outstanding officiating, Geiger's performance - and that of his assistants and the VAR team - left much to be desired.

Yet Colombia did not learn their lesson as Carlos Sanchez, once of Aston Villa, was penalised for dragging Kane to the floor at an England corner.

"I'm reeling because when I spoke to [FIFA president Gianni] Infantino the first time, everything had changed at Federation Internationale de Football Association: the thieves had left, the fixes, everything".
