The 32: Colombia petition labelled a 'nonsense' by Mick McCarthy

The 32: Colombia petition labelled a 'nonsense' by Mick McCarthy

Yes, on paper, this looks like a very winnable tie, but as we know, matches at this stage aren't won on paper and England fans just have to look to the Three Lions' record against Sweden for evidence of that.

Eric Dier has paid tribute to England's fans at home and in Russian Federation, as the Three Lions gear up for Saturday's World Cup quarter final with Sweden. David Ospina had just saved a penalty from Jordan Henderson to put Colombia 3-2 up after three spot-kicks each.

He was only six, so he doesn't remember much about it, but we've been present at both of England's shootout wins in tournaments - so as long as we're out here, England are fine!

Pickford helped England reach their first World Cup semi-final since 1990, and their first at any major tournament since Euro '96.

English football fans are still recovering their nerves after the dramatic World Cup knockout win this morning.

According to several sport outlets in Europe, more than 200,000 people have signed a petition demanding a replay between Gareth Southgate's men and "Los Cafeteros".

"A substitution like that can say to the players that we're going to hang onto what we've got, and I think that can create a little bit of negativity".

"We didn't lose the penalties and that's got to be the best thing from this". "We know our ability, and it's all about togetherness".

"I thought they were cynical from the start, only tried to stop England playing and upset them - try to get them sent off".

He saved a penalty in the shootout, allowing Eric Dier to net the victor. "I don't care if I'm not the biggest keeper because it's about being there in the moment and making the save, and I was", he said in his post match interview.

I don't mind admitting that my hands were shaking as I took photos of England's penalty shootout win over Colombia out here in Russian Federation.

"He said to me "well done you fellow Mackem". Obviously we spoke a lot about being an inexperienced, young team, but we grew a lot out there tonight.
