'Monumental robbery': Maradona lashes out after England v Colombia game

'Monumental robbery': Maradona lashes out after England v Colombia game

And, after experiencing his first World Cup, Falcao believes his team will only get better in the next few years.

"It was a tremendous blow", he told Mundo Deportivo.

A nervy extra-time then gave way to a fingernail biting penalty shoot out in which England went behind following Jordan Henderson's miss.

"Thank you warriors! Colombia departs from the World Cup with their heads high", RCN Noticias TV said in their online match report.

Pickford succeeded where Peter Shilton, David Seaman, and Paul Robinson failed as the 1990, 1998 and 2006 World Cup campaigns ended in shootout losses.

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

"Now is not the time to talk about my future, but the World Cup has helped me reconnect and reaffirm myself as a footballer".

Fans wearing replica shirts chanted "football's coming home", the refrain which has always been adopted as an unofficial national anthem for the England football team, at various points during the match, most notably after Spurs striker Kane's opener, goalkeeper Jordan Pickford's penalty save, and substitute Eric Dier's decisive spot-kick.

Southgate certainly knows what it feels like to be in that situation, having missed the decisive spot-kick for England back at Euro 96 when they were knocked out at Wembley in a heart-breaking semi-final defeat by Germany. With such euphoria surrounding the side, England finished second in the group which was possibly a blessing in disguise as it gives them a chance to be in the final facing oppositions that are unseeded.

Hataoka's 4th-round launch almost wins Women's PGA C'ship
The PGA Championship is returning to Baltusrol, and the Women's PGA is going to the fabled New Jersey course for the first time. With her driver normally being the weapon that helps her excel over her competitors she hit just four fairways on Sunday.

"We said, well, we'll come and see what this famous city has got to offer, take in the sights, see the game and hopefully England do the business".

Shearer was jubilant all through the show, too, signing off by singing "It's Coming Home".

"We practised and practised and it paid off", Kieran Trippier, one of the successful penalty takers on Tuesday, said.

"I suppose it's worked out alright and we're still going to win it".

"I'm reeling because when I spoke to [FIFA president Gianni] Infantino the first time, everything had changed at Federation Internationale de Football Association: the thieves had left, the fixes, everything".

They are now through to a quarter final against Sweden on Saturday but they had to do it the hard way after conceding a late goal after leading 1-0 for most of the second half. "I've got power and agility. I'm very good at it", he added.

Juan Cuadrado, Marcus Rashford and Luis Muriel followed Kane with successful spot kicks, before Jordan Henderson's effort was blocked by a sprawling Ospina.

The 27-year-old from south east London said: "I just really wanted to beat them (England). I apologise to all the Colombian people, but they must know the players are not to blame".
