Former Preston loanee Jordan Pickford is England's penalty hero after Colombia shoot-out win

Jordan Pickford of England makes a save during the 2018 FIFA World Cup Russia group G match between England and Belgium at Kaliningrad Stadium

After Jordan Henderson's shot was saved by David Ospina and Colombia's Mateus Uribe's rattled the bar, it was down to Jordan Pickford to save England's chances against Carlos Bacca.

Pickford and England will now prepare for Saturday's quarter-final encounter with Sweden, who overcame Switzerland yesterday to reach the last eight.

England recovered manfully from the gut punch of seeing Harry Kane's spot-kick cancelled out in stoppage-time by Yerry Mina, which took the match to extra-time and eventually penalties with the score remaining 1-1.

Colombia coach deliberately elbows England player - shocking! "If we've got players who are 75% the guys who haven't been in the team deserve to come in and be at 100%".

"To get knocked down like we did is hard to come back from it".

"The lads would always be prepared to risk injury for these games but that can't be at the detriment of the performance", Southgate said. Two years later, it was re-recorded with slightly different lyrics as "3 Lions 98" - and, of course, it resurfaces pretty much every time there's a footy tournament in which England are involved.

"A new England" - Pickford's save in the shootout is the headline image of the I's back page, along with the caption: "Pickford's great save and Dier's cool head see Three Lions past Colombia in fret-ever World Cup shootout victory".

"I've been criticised for going with my top hand, but as long as you save it, that's all that counts", said Pickford after silencing his critics.

"I might be young but I've got good mental strength and experience and I used that today". 22 years later, the phrase has a broader meaning - that England will win it.

Lancashire Police issued a reminder before the World Cup for football fans to "not get carried away in the heat of the moment".
