England fans went crazy over the penalty shootout win against Colombia

In a group famously described as "EASY" - England, Algeria, Slovenia, "Yanks" (United States) - by one tabloid newspaper, they could only finish second which meant a last-16 encounter with Germany.

Kane now joins Gary Lineker as the only England player to have bagged six goals at a single World Cup.

"To get knocked down at the end like we did at the end, it's hard to come back from that, " Dier said. 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 players gave pretournament interviews with pleasure, then beat Tunisia in their opener and hammered Panama as a follow-up. England will face Sweden in the quarterfinals on July 7 in Samara and the victor of that match will face either Russian Federation or Croatia on July 11.

Harry Kane's sixth goal of the World Cup appeared enough to secure England's first knockout win at a major tournament in 12 years, the Three Lions captain scoring from the spot after he was fouled by Carlos Sanchez.

"One England supporter tweeted how proud he is to be English: "[Southgate's] compassion towards the Colombia players who were distraught at losing was humbling, he knows he's been there, the way this man conducts himself, his integrity/honesty/empathy is a joy to see".

If England get past Sweden they face a potential semi-final against hosts Russian Federation or Croatia for their first appearance in a final since winning the World Cup for the only time in 1966.

Their positioning skills when their opponents attacked ensured there was no trouble in clearing the danger. "He's very agile. Neymar picked up the ball wide and then ran straight nearly parallel to the goal, drawing away Mexico's defenders with him.

Federation Internationale de Football Association denied Amrabat's allegations, saying in a statement: "FIFA referees are under clear instructions with regard to their behavior and relationship with the teams at the 2018 Federation Internationale de Football Association World Cup Russia and it can be confirmed that Mr. Geiger has acted in an exemplary and professional manner as an appointed match official". The victor there gets the Russia-Croatia survivor.

England manager Gareth Southgate knows all about the pain of missing a crucial kick in a penalty shootout and as he sportingly consoled Colombia's Carlos Bacca on Tuesday night at the Spartak Stadium, the memories couldn't have been far away.

"It showed the togetherness and character".

"We've had a list [of penalty takers] for the past couple of days", Southgate said. "If anything, we should feel freer".

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. The first match I ever watched was the 66 final but I was eight and can not remember much about it.

You've just embarrassed yourself massively, Diego. "You want to be involved in games that matter".

Ben Clarke, 22, said this tournament is England's best chance in decades.
