  • England-Colombia

It always goes to penalties. England coach Gareth Southgate fielded the same starting lineup as the side's opener against Tunisia in the group phase, playing a 3-5-2 formation. On top of that, England was knocked out of the 1996 European Championship semifinals and the quarterfinals in 2004 and 2012 on penalties.

Despite his team collecting six yellow cards to England's two, coach Jose Pekerman felt Colombia had been on the wrong side of American referee Mark Geiger's decisions. A team of young players with smiles on their faces and a spring in their step and the belief that it does not always have to be the way it has always been.

It brought up the Tottenham star's sixth goal of the tournament, and also saw England's captain equal Tommy Lawton's 79-year-old record. "Colombia died standing. That's why I applaud them".

Harry Kane, who has arguably been England's best player throughout the tournament, pleaded for calm. "We've grown up a lot out there on that pitch tonight".

Powerhouses collide as England and Colombia battle in today's second 2018 World Cup soccer game. England's goalkeeper, Jordan Pickford, had set the stage by pawing away Carlos Bacca's fifth attempt for Colombia with a dive to his right. "I don't know", he said.

Here, FP looks at the Three Lions' potential route on to the final, using the world rankings to determine opponents from the quarter-finals onwards. At one point, someone was on my back. "It's a huge relief to take going forward". "Twice the English threw themselves to the ground and he did not admonish them".

Colombia: David Ospina 6 (out of 10), Santiago Arias 6, Yerry Mina 7, Davinson Sanchez 5, Johan Mojica 5, Wilmar Barrios 3, Carlos Sanchez 4, Jefferson Lerma 4, Juan Guillermo Cuadrado 7, Juan Quintero 5, Radamel Falcao 5.




For England fans who have made the journey to Moscow, there was confidence but also nerves.

Raheem Sterling has yet to score at the World Cup but his pace could cause problems for Sweden.

Sweden beat Switzerland 1-0 to progress to the quarter-finals. "That needed a bit of a review as the players were being substituted".

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 the final group game loss to Belgium to secure an easier route. The victor there gets the Russia-Croatia survivor. We still know we have extra time; we still have a penalty shootout to win this game.

"It showed the togetherness and character".

"If we were down, it was because we were fouled", he said. "If anything, we should feel freer".

You've just embarrassed yourself massively, Diego.
