Amid frayed tempers and the heat of the occasion, Kane kept a cool head, directing his penalty high and into the centre of the net with Arsenal's goalkeeper David Ospina diving to the right.

Also, as one of the shootout scorers Kieran Trippier noted, Southgate made his team practice penalties when they exhausted at the end of a training session, to simulate the fatigue that is present after extra-time.

Eric Dier scored the winning kick after Jordan Pickford's brilliant save from Carlos Bacca's attempt, with England's first ever World Cup shootout win setting up a meeting with Sweden in Samara on Saturday.

But Pickford, England's youngest-ever tournament goalkeeper, and Dier came to the fore to propel their country into the last eight of Russian Federation 2018.

England kicked Colombia out of the 2018 World Cup after a dramatic penalty shootout - and Diego Maradona, who was supporting Colombia- is outraged.

"We did our research on them, with Margetson and the analysis staff", Pickford said.

"A bit of apprehension for tonight but I think they'll go at it like they didn't against the Tunisians, hopefully score in the first 20 minutes". "That hasn't been good for us".

"It was very nervy, we done it the hard way but we done it".

Veteran striker Radamel Falcao who was a flop in his brief stint in England with Manchester United and Chelsea will have added incentive to down the nation that gave him his worst phase in footballing life.

The red and white clad Spartak stadium, 15km outside central Moscow, resembled downtown Bogata an hour before the match.

England have long-been the advocates of the 4-4-2 formation which many now consider to be out-dated.

Supporters hugged and danced when the penalty was given and the fans' zone erupted when it was tucked away.

Elsewhere, the masses of Colombia fans in Elephant and Castle's Lost Rivers were left disappointed. I thought it was a good game.

"I think we have to try and defend football and we should do a little more to try to prevent certain situations knowing that they may arise".
