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

Camden Market

Two teams - Spain and Denmark - have already been knocked out of the round of 16 on penalties so don't be surprised if the Colombia vs. England tie goes all the way to spot-kicks. Only two outfield players from the side that started against Belgium are likely to start this last-16 game. When the fifth, and potentially decisive, England penalty fell to a player who has had to endure much of this tournament on the bench. "Losing the game might actually benefit England to go further in the World Cup, to be on the right side of the draw which I believe they are".

England were the better side without looking too risky but were then gifted the lead when Carlos Sanchez hauled down England's captain and talisman Kane once too often.

Substitute Danny Rose nearly struck an extra-time victor when his angled shot whistled beyond the far post, and Eric Dier headed over unmarked at a corner before England's luck deserted them again in all too familiar fashion.

"It is 10 years since we have won a knockout fixture", England Coach Gareth Southgate said on Monday, according to Sky Sports "For this team, this is a brilliant opportunity to go beyond where more experienced teams have before them". "No one laid on the floor and we stood there when it counted". Thus, he is likely to miss the match against England which will turn out to be a huge blow for Colombia.

"But today is a special moment for this team, and that hopefully will give belief to the generations of players that follow, because they can see what is possible".

Earlier, England looked to be headed through to the quarterfinals only for Colombia to level in added time.

If Leonard does, however, make his intentions of heading to L.A.in 2019 free agency clear enough, it could scare off other teams. San Antonio Spurs star Kawhi Leonard has already established he wants to be traded, multiple reports have confirmed.

It's an issue Southgate will have to resolve fast, and he may have to turn to Ruben Loftus-Cheek to help out.

England can now look forward to their first World Cup quarter final appearance since 2006.

Jordan Pickford, Kyle Walker, John Stones, Harry Maguire, Kieran Trippier, Dele Alli, Jordan Henderson, Jesse Lingard, Ashley Young, Raheem Sterling, and Harry Kane. More debating made Kane wait for several minutes before he calmly hit into the middle of the net with Ospina diving to his right - their ninth goal in Russian Federation and seventh from a set piece.

Rodriguez's last goal for Colombia came in an October, 2017, qualifier against Peru. Both the teams have often shown that they are prone to errors on the field.

The Swedes bounced back from Toni Kroos's injury-time victor for Germany to beat Mexico 3-0 while the defending champions did themselves in by losing to South Korea. But the Swedes could earn more respect by beating Switzerland and advancing to the quarter-finals for the first time since 1994, when they ultimately finished third.
