Baddiel and Skinner celebrate as England beat Colombia on penalties

05 July 2018

When Eric Dier scored the winning penalty to beat Colombia and send England through to the World Cup quarter-finals, images show most of the England team hurtling to celebrate in the corner. The Panamanians were so outraged they threatened to boycott the third-place game of the tournament and a leading newspaper's headline the next day read "Fucking Árbitro".

"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".

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

This reality stands cemented already even ahead of the quarterfinals that begin on Friday, with only two previous final berths sprinkled among that whole foursome up there.

With extra time failing to yield a victor, that set up a dramatic penalty shoot-out with England only too aware that they had lost all three previous World Cup spot-kick dramas.

Both of the latter nations have raised the World Cup trophy at least once; France most recently in 1998.

Along with England, France are joint-second favorite to win the World Cup at 7/2.

"He was very sick indeed by that time but said he couldn't tear himself away from the game".

Gareth Southgate and his men have been lauded as heroes in Russian Federation and back home and the way they've conducted themselves so far in the tournament has earned them high praise.

Kieran Trippier was the coolest man in Moscow when he stepped up to score in England's penalty shoot-out victory over Colombia.

Uruguay's success has been built on a solid defence led by Atletico Madrid pair Jose Gimenez and Diego Godin, with the old-fashioned strike partnership of Luis Suarez and Edinson Cavani doing the damage at the other end with five goals between them.
