England overcome penalty shootout hoodoo to beat Colombia

FIFA World Cup 2018: 'England can beat anyone' – Dele Alli

England players celebrate the penalty save by Jordan Pickford from Carlos Bacca of Colombia during the 2018 FIFA World Cup Russia Round of 16 match between Colombia and England at Spartak Stadium on July 3, 2018 in Moscow, Russia. England's Jordan Pickford made a massive save on Carlos Bacca and Mateus Uribe was denied by the crossbar in the shootout.

The Three Lions face Sweden in the last eight and will be up against Russian Federation or Croatia in the semi-finals.

Furthermore, this was England's maiden success in a World Cup penalty shoot-out. "It is good to get that one off our back". I've got power and agility. I don't care if I'm not the biggest keeper in the world.

Pickford will likely go down as the hero for England, although the Everton man had come under fire in the build-up to the game following his failure to keep out Adnan Januzaj's winning goal for Belgium in the Three Lions' final Group G fixture.

The Three Lions were moments away from a 1-0 win after 90 minutes, but Yerry Mina's header ensured the game went to extra time.

They are sure to be in Samara too, for the quarter-final that now follows; yet another tournament encounter with Sweden. The manager has come in with great ideas, great ideas in the way he wants us to play. "We are through to the next round and that is the most important thing". "But we were ready for that".

Then comes a potential semi-final against hosts Russian Federation or Croatia with Tuesday's win appearing to vindicate - just - coach Gareth Southgate's decision to field a second-string side in the final group game loss to Belgium to secure an easier route.

Dele Alli is also back in the team after missing the past two games following a thigh strain he picked up in the opening 2-1 victory over Tunisia. After plenty of pushing and shoving, Kane finally stepped up and sent his penalty into the right of the net.

Defenders: Cristian Zapata (AC Milan), Oscar Murillo (CF Pachuca), Santiago Arias (PSV Eindhoven), Yerry Mina (Barcelona), Johan Mojica (Girona FC), Frank Fabra (CA Boca Juniors), and Davinson Sanchez (Tottenham Hotspur).

Goalkeepers: David Ospina (Arsenal), Camilo Vargas (AC Deportivo Cali), and Jose Fernando Cuadrado (CD Once Caldas).

According to FourFourTwo, an estimated 40,000 Colombian fans will have arrived in Russian Federation by the time the match against England kicks off on Tuesday.

Powerhouses collide as England and Colombia battle in today's second 2018 World Cup soccer game.

Kane strained to meet a fine Kieran Trippier cross that he could only direct onto the roof of the as Juan Quintero looked most likely to unpick the lock at the other end.

Lingard is seen as one of the key players keeping the atmosphere in the squad light and he said that the mood among the players has been ideal.
