England’s route to glory at the 2018 World Cup

GETTY England vs Colombia Gareth Southgate has labelled the game as the biggest in a decade


The 26-year-old was the Golden Boot victor with six goals in Brazil four years ago, when Colombia reached the quarter-finals for the first time. "The Colombian players asked for VAR and he did not give it to them".

"It is a blow for the whole group".

"We've got a research team on it to come back with some interesting findings", FA technical director Dan Ashworth said.

"On the back of our shirts it is written "Unidos por unidos por un pais" which means 'United as one nation, '" said Andres Felipe, from the city of Medellin.

Kane took his tally at the 2018 World Cup to six goals, which puts the England forward two clear of Belgian frontman Romelu Lukaku in the race for the Golden Boot.

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

And when England were awarded an obvious penalty when Carlos Sanchez hauled down the magnificent Harry Kane, there was a three-minute delay for Colombia's protests before the striker scored from the spot. England, which had long wilted under its country's critical news media gaze, showed up in a positive mood, and preaching that this time - finally - would be different.

The Telegraph revealed in May that the Football Association encouraged England's players to copy the penalty taking style of the five-time Ballon d'Or victor - specially taking their time before striking the ball.

Harry Kane earned a penalty against Colombia on Tuesday, after he was felled in the box.

Fans wearing replica shirts chanted "football's coming home", the refrain which has always been adopted as an unofficial national anthem for the England football team, at various points during the match, most notably after Spurs striker Kane's opener, goalkeeper Jordan Pickford's penalty save, and substitute Eric Dier's decisive spot-kick.

With the game precariously-tied at 1-1, the match went into extra-time and then penalties.

This was the Three Lions' first win in the knockout stages of a major tournament since the 2006 World Cup in Germany.

According to the broadcaster's figures, the most-watched single minute of Tuesday's game was 21:52 BST, when 24.4 million people tuned in. "It's very clear to me, Geiger, an American, how curious that he was the one who invented a penalty for Brazil [in a 1-1 friendly draw against Colombia in 2012], that Nigeria accused him at Federation Internationale de Football Association".

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

They might have been outnumbered in the stadium but earlier in the day, at Bistro restaurant on one of Moscow's main shopping streets, England's modest following made their presence felt. The South Americans would have to get past first European hopefuls Belgium and then, if the seedings play out, France to get this far - but they have the pedigree to do it.
