Jordan Pickford: England penalty hero receives praise after Colombia shootout win

The South Americans had been getting away with blatant holding and wrestling at each of England's many corners and the referee's patience finally snapped when Carlos Sanchez hauled down tournament leading scorer Kane once too often.

If they can win a penalty shootout, surely anything is now possible?

Colombia have crashed out of the World Cup after losing to England on penalties in the last-16 of the global soccer tournament.

England's Manchester United forward Jesse Lingard says Gareth Southgate has brought about a revolution with the national team and vows they won't change their positive approach for Wednesday's last-16 clash with Colombia.

England had led 1-0 until Yerry Mina's 93rd-minute header cancelled out Harry Kane's penalty opener and went into the shootout having won just one of their previous seven. Earlier, Colombian Mateus Uribe had smacked his penalty against the upright to set up the final 4-3 count.

"It would be nice to knock out England as they eliminated us from the France World Cup in 1998", she said.


With a fresh generation of players not burdened by past misery, England coach Gareth Southgate has helped to banish painful memories of his own: Missing the final kick at Euro '96 against Germany. We are together, more experienced and a stronger squad of players than we were in Brazil. "We're very self-confident and that will compensate the fact the other team has been able to rest more".

England will now play Sweden in the quarter-final on Saturday.

Kieran Trippier has been hailed for his displays thus far and his crossing ability should come to great use for England against Colombia. Watch Colombia vs. England to find out. Eric Dier converted the game-winning kick to advance.

"It's been refreshing to see a lot of young players, a lot of energy, a lot of high pressing, and they're scoring goals and exciting as well".

England is advancing in Russian Federation after defending champion Germany was eliminated early and Argentina, Portugal and Spain went home in the round of 16.

Wilmar Barrios was the first man to get booked on Tuesday in the latest controversial incident that highlighted the use of the video assistant at the World Cup.
