Henderson had a penalty saved by Ospina in the shootout but Mateus Uribe smashed the following kick onto the crossbar to pave the way for Pickford and Dier to be England heroes.

"We have to see what is possible and not be hindered by history or the expectations", Southgate said.

"He must apologise to the Colombian people."

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

Whereas past England sides might have recoiled after conceding a stoppage time equalizer to Colombia, this group held on through extra time and broke the penalties' curse.

'I just remember running in and someone stepped in front of me, ' he said of the incident. I just kind of looked back at him, but we knew their game plan and exactly what they were trying to do. "I think there is exaggeration on theatre by the players", he told Russia Today.

"To get knocked down at the end like we did at the end, it's hard to come back from that", Dier said.

Sweden now await in a mouth-watering Samara quarter-final on Saturday, which England approach buoyed by a display of character and coolness which belied the side's tender years.

"In the World Cup play-off, Italy couldn't score in 180 minutes, Germany only scored (their winner) with a free-kick at the end".

Colombia was given six of the eight yellow cards handed out by Geiger and were whistled for 23 of the 36 fouls called in the contest.

When Geiger did award a penalty in the second half he rose above several minutes of squabbling, and a cynical attempt by Johan Mojica to scuff the penalty spot with his boots, to rifle home his sixth goal of the tournament.

That mentality and the preparation was evident in the way England dealt with the challenge of the shootout.

After four minutes of mayhem as Colombia protested, Kane kept his cool and smashed in his third spot kick of Russian Federation 2018.

The Sun published the frontpage headline with a picture of England captain Harry Kane draped in a Cross of St. George flag.

"There were so many interruptions in the game, far too many interruptions", Colombia coach Jose Pekerman said.

"I wish I was wrong, but as from the next match I think England will be much more careful".

Maradona added: "England couldn't find a way in, Colombia played how it could, with what it had, without James [Rodriguez], without a creator. People should also look at England's players".
