Diego Maradona says England committed 'robbery' against Colombia

England-Colombia

In all of worldwide football, England have the worst record in shootouts, losing three and winning none.

'I did all my research on them and Radamel Falcao was the only one who didn't go his usual way, ' Pickford told ITV.

Yet Colombia did not learn their lesson as Carlos Sanchez, once of Aston Villa, was penalised for dragging Kane to the floor at an England corner. Regulation ended 1-1 as Colombia canceled out a Harry Kane penalty-kick goal late in the match, and neither could find the victor in extra time.

England trailed, 3-2, in the penalty shootout after Jordan Henderson's shot was saved, but Mateus Uribe hit the bar and goalkeeper Jordan Pickford then saved Carlos Bacca's kick.

"To get knocked down at the end like we did with that goal in extra time, you know, it's hard to come back from that". "It was a night when I knew we were going to get over the line.

But we did", 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. This has been a World Cup filled with late goals and sure enough it happened again when Yerry Mina nodded in a 93rd-minute equalizer.

The England boss missed the penalty against Germany in 1996 in the semi-final which meant that England left the Euros.

Southgate stayed off the Colombians' bulletin board with a few clichés, but he knows exactly what is expected - and what can go wrong.

England had lost five successive shootouts before luck finally smiled on it at the compact Spartak Stadium.

The night got off to a flawless start when Raheem Sterling was brought down in the box and Rooney put England ahead with a fourth-minute penalty.

Southgate admitted the gruelling nature of the match had taken its toll on his players, with Colombia shown six yellow cards.

Referee Mark Geiger immediately pointed to the spot, and Kane buried his sixth goal of the tournament to give England the lead. England, well aware of their shootout history, tried desperately to find a victor without conceding too much space to Los Cafeteros.

"I'd have liked a week to enjoy this one but haven't got that because Sweden are a team I respect hugely. That has not been good for us, and hurt us a lot", said Colombian coach Jose Pekerman at a post-match press conference.

"It's a big night for England", said the captain. I wish I was wrong, but I think from the next match England will be much more careful.

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