team will need to avoid any mistakes in their game against the Colombians. They also received the large majority of the eight yellow cards shown.

During the shootout, England goalkeeper Jordan Pickford saved from AC Milan forward Carlos Bacca before Dier stepped up to clinch victory, driving his shot low under David Ospina. "It was a hard situation to be in, but we have overcome it and we can be very proud of ourselves", he said.

"We've had a list [of penalty takers] for the past couple of days", Southgate said.


"We were ready for that".

"We knew that if it has to go to penalties, it has to go to penalties".

"I saw a monumental theft. We had the belief and the resilience to get over the line".

Colombian coach Jose Pekerman said football needed to be "protected" after suggesting English players had faked fouls.

Four years ago in Brazil, Colombia romped to the quarter-finals for the first time on the back of four straight wins, salsa-dancing to celebrate their dozen goals and launching midfielder James Rodriguez on the road to global stardom.


"They have a good group of young but experienced players", he said.

The referee waved play-on, a utterly wrong decision and it was no surprise because he had been on the wrong side for most past of the night and apart from rightly awarding England a penalty in the 54th minute, his decisions was shoddy just like the football on display was.

Alli almost added a second when his diving header at the far post flashed over the bar, with Lingard appealing for another spot-kick after he was caught by Davinson Sanchez.

England's penalty win was their first since a Euro 96 quarterfinal success against Spain, but there had been five consecutive shootout defeats since then, leading to the nation becoming fixated by the shadow of penalties. "There could have been several red cards for off-the-ball stuff", he added.

England might have had their sigh of relief after the final whistle of the match but that relief will turn into agony if they do not tidy up and start working as a team.


Ultimately, Colombia got what they deserved much to the anguish of thousands of their fans who had turned the occasion into a home game.
