England Beat Colombia on Penalties, Advance to World Cup Quarter-Finals

Camden Market

The Three Lions will no face Sweden in Samara at 3pm on Saturday for a place in the semi-finals.

England win their first ever World Cup penalty shoot-out after previously losing three. The players actively talked down their chances in a bid to project an air of humility.

England was always the more purposeful side but they lacked the key final ball and needed a gift to take the lead.

A fantastic attitutde and he deserves everything.

"Today was a special night for every Englishman", said Southgate. Had Colombia played the expansive passing game that proved too much for Poland during the group stages, they would surely have made life more hard for England, who have always found it tough against opponents who can dominate possession.

England advanced to the World Cup quarterfinals on penalties after a 1-1 draw with Colombia on a dramatic evening in Moscow on Tuesday.

Tottenham Hotspur star Dele Alli has been quoted by ESPN as saying that Spurs teammate Davinson Sanchez is not ideal, as England face Colombia on Tuesday.

"As a group of lads, it is a young squad but we still have those experienced players in there and the team spirit is incredible at the moment".

LeBron weighing many free agency options
Even without Paul George , who agreed to re-sign with the Oklahoma City Thunder , that makes the Lakers an instant contender. Leonard isn't a free agent but he has been holding out from the Spurs and it's no secret both he and the team want a trade.

Paul George, Russell Westbrook Friendship Factor in PG Choosing Thunder
Presti gambled a year ago by trading for George and Carmelo Anthony to join Westbrook in hopes of rejoining the NBA's elite. The success of the Thunder's starting five last season has been a point in favor of Anthony's value to the team.

Fortnite’s Playground mode is still nowhere to be seen
A new record for single game kills in Fortnite has been set at 48, but it did not happen they way you might expect . You also get unlimited respawns until the last five minutes, when the storm starts to close in.

The victor plays the Sweden-Switzerland victor in a quarterfinal at 10 a.m. Saturday in Samara (Fox). The one team who will be relishing all this is Colombia -- what greater motivation than an England team believing playing them is an easier way to glory!

"We are going to have to play the big teams sooner or later and if you want to be the best team in the world, you have got to beat the big teams".

Rodriguez's last goal for Colombia came in an October, 2017, qualifier against Peru.

Colombia's players were strangely put out by the decision to pull Carlos Sanchez up for wrestling Kane to the deck, yet Henderson was the only player booked in a lengthy wait that ended with England's captain smashing home.

They also showed a different side to this new squad, however-the mental fortitude to win a penalty shootout.

"The game against Belgium was a bit of a game which probably no-one wanted to win".

The Bayern Munich star limped out of Colombia's final group match against Senegal, and is replaced in Moscow by Jefferson Lerma in one of two changes made by coach Jose Pekerman.

Previous results: Defeated Tunisia, 2-1.
