England sends Colombia home following shoot-out drama

If England beat Colombia who and when will they play next

If England beat Colombia who and when will they play next

Gareth Southgate's team looked to be heading into the last eight in regulation time until Yerry Mina equalised with a 93rd-minute header as the giant Colombian defender scored for the third game in a row.

The 25-year-old midfielder is expected to start against Colombia after making a positive contribution to the group stage, following a great 2017-18 season at Man United in which he became an established first-team player under Jose Mourinho. When the fifth, and potentially decisive, England penalty fell to a player who has had to endure much of this tournament on the bench. "When you look at the players they've got in the team and the way the qualified in their group as well, they've got some quality players and we need to be aware of that".

But more than ever when it then fell to Eric Dier to finish the job.

"It is 10 years since we have won a knockout fixture", England Coach Gareth Southgate said on Monday, according to Sky Sports "For this team, this is a brilliant opportunity to go beyond where more experienced teams have before them".

"I thought there were many, many fouls in the game and I don't think we conceded anywhere near the number of our opponents".

Colombia suddenly looked fresher against a stunned and exhausted England in the first period of extra time, with Falcao heading wide in the 104th.

While England were able to rest eight players for their last group game against Belgium, Colombia had to fight to the last minute to get past Senegal after losing their opening match to Japan. "[Radamel] Falcao is the only one who didn't really go his way".

Kane now joins Gary Lineker as the only England player to have bagged six goals at a single World Cup.

It's an issue Southgate will have to resolve fast, and he may have to turn to Ruben Loftus-Cheek to help out. Cool as you like, he hit the back of the net, sending the ball past David Ospina in the Columbia goal and sending the whole of England wild.

MOSCOW-After defending champions Germany, Argentina and Spain's shocking departure from the FIFA World Cup 2018, England are seen as one of the favourites to lift the coveted trophy.

England captain Harry Kane had given his side a 1-0 lead in the 57th minute with a well-taken penalty.

England advance to face Sweden in the quarterfinals on Sunday (NZ time).

The Three Lions can continue believing that it's coming home.

"As a group of lads, it is a young squad but we still have those experienced players in there and the team spirit is awesome at the moment". But, their belief and ability to change the result of the match with one magical moment is something that is what has seen them prevail so far.

Pickford made his first save from a fizzing long-range effort from Juan Fernado Quintero, while Jesse Lingard sliced over after Colombia half-cleared a cross.
