England end penalty jinx to edge Colombia in shootout

Radamel Falcao does kick-ups in training

"Falcao is the only one who didn't go his way".

"The penalty was not a penalty - it was a foul by Kane", Maradona told Venezuelan TV station Telesur.

But Pickford, England's youngest-ever tournament goalkeeper, and Dier came to the fore to propel their country into the last eight of Russian Federation 2018.

David Ospina dived superbly to his left to repel Jordan Henderson's third penalty for England, but Manuel Uribe hit the crossbar before Jordan Pickford saved from Carlos Bacca. Eric Dier converted the game-winning kick to advance.

"I don't care if I'm not the biggest goalkeeper, I've got the power and agility to get around the goal and I've got to make the save and be in the moment and I was".

"It was a nervous one, " Dier said. "I've never really been in a situation like that before but felt I had to score after missing the header at the end so I'm just thankful I scored", he said. We still know we have extra time; we still have a penalty shootout to win this game. 2012. Six major tournaments in 22 years (including the European Championship), and England, brimming with high hopes and big-name players, going out in the cruelest possible way. "That's something that will live with me forever", said Southgate said after the game when reminded of the Euro 96 semi-final loss to Germany where he missed the crucial kick in the shootout. Kane put away the penalty with class in the 57th minute. Now back to full form and fitness, the Colombian skipper is a very unsafe player and one that certainly Gareth Southgate must have spoken about at length in his team meetings.

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

A goalless 120 minutes meant another shoot-out for Sven-Goran Eriksson's team, and missed spot-kicks from Frank Lampard, Steven Gerrard and Jamie Carragher allowed Ronaldo to apply the killer blow to England's so-called "Golden Generation".

Dan Underhill, 38, from Gillingham, Kent, said "it's got to be" when asked if this was England's best opportunity in decades. I wish I was wrong, but I think from the next match England will be much more careful.

Jose Pekerman, Colombia's head coach will be keeping his fingers crossed over the fitness of attacking midfielder James Rodriguez whose calf trouble prematurely ended his clash with Senegal. At least it did not Tuesday night, outlasting a game and rugged Colombia, 4-3, in a shootout after the teams played to a 1-1 tie.

The have shown those qualities in this tournament but on Tuesday, under pressure and facing unsafe players of the ability of Radamel Falcao and Juan Cuardado they also showed they have all the defensive basics in place.
