Rodriguez misses out for Colombia, Alli back for England

England-Colombia

England-Colombia

England committed a "monumental robbery" in beating Colombia in the last 16 at the World Cup, according to Argentina legend Diego Maradona.

England have actually triumphed in a shootout before, but you have to go all the way back to Euro 96 when, with Stuart Pearce's passion to the fore, they defeated Spain in a quarterfinal at Wembley.

The World Cup match between Colombia and England will be broadcast live on Fox.

Girlfriend Megan is out in Russian Federation to support Pickford, and last night posted two pictures of herself on Instagram, one before and one after the penalty shootout.

An extremely classy gesture from Henderson it must be said.

He missed the final penalty in the shootout that saw England fall out of the 1996 Euros on home soil, and then saw his country go out of a World Cup by the same fate two years later. He obviously hates YOUR football team and has no interest in synchronised swimming.

Amid frayed tempers and the heat of the occasion, Kane kept a cool head, directing his penalty high and into the centre of the net with Arsenal's goalkeeper David Ospina diving to the right.

Just when England thought they had done enough to edge into the quarter-finals, with 90 minutes up, Colombia defender Yerry Mina headed in a dramatic equaliser to send the match to extra-time.

England substitute Eric Dier scored the winning penalty for England, after Colombia's fourth penalty kick hit the crossbar and the fifth one was palmed away by England goalkeeper Jordan Pickford.

Rodriguez is one of Colombia's most important players and won the Golden Boot at the 2014 World Cup after finishing as the tournament's top scorer.

England is advancing in Russian Federation after defending champion Germany was eliminated early and Argentina, Portugal and Spain went home in the Round of 16.

"We were trying to download the app to watch it or considering scaling the fence to get to the nearest pub, but then it came back on so we were rewarded for our patience".

The Colombian was in tears as he stood next to his manager, covering his face with his shirt, but Southgate went to put an arm around his shoulder and gave some words of encouragement.

He eventually regained control as the game moved into extra-time but, in a World Cup that has seen some outstanding officiating, Geiger's performance - and that of his assistants and the VAR team - left much to be desired.

"If we were down, it was because we were fouled", he said.

Kane made the breakthrough on 57 minutes after he was wrestled to the ground at a corner by Carlos Sanchez, the same player who was shown the first red card of the tournament in a 2-1 loss to Japan.

Will Colombia beat England for the first time?
