Pickford and England will now prepare for Saturday's quarter-final encounter with Sweden, who overcame Switzerland yesterday to reach the last eight. The celebrations, however, did not end in the field as Southgate and his boys took to social media to express their delight.

"This was special but I want us to go on", said Southgate, whose own penalty miss saw England lose to Germany in the semi-finals of Euro 96 at Wembley. "Some just cramp, and some need just a little bit more assessment, so we'll know more over the next 36 hours".

"AT LAST" - The Express sport team lead on an image of an elated Harry Kane alongside the caption: "After 22 years of hurt Southgate's Lions finally win a penalty shoot-out to earn Sweden showdown".

Brazil forward Neymar has been heavily criticised for diving during the tournament, but Mourinho said he was not the only one and accused England defender Harry Maguire of doing the same during the victory over Colombia.

Thirty minutes of extra time failed to celebrate the sides, before the young England team exorcised the demons of shootouts past with a 4-3 spotkick win.

"During my time with England we met them four times".


A lot of England fans are fully convinced that football is coming home and will not even consider any other option but a win tonight for the Three Lions when they face Colombia.

It has now emerged that copying Ronaldo's penalty mastery where he takes his time before striking the ball was adopted by Gareth Southgate's men.

"I went for a tackle with [Radamel] Falcao and he just dropped to the floor and I just said to him "just get up". not quite like that".

"It'll be the most hard game they'll have played so far, they can bet on that". After a tense 30 minutes which was dominated from Colombians, the tie moved into penalties.

"I thought there were many, many fouls in the game and I don't think we conceded anywhere near the number of our opponents".
