Federation Internationale de Football Association 'strongly rebukes' Diego Maradona comments after England win against Colombia

James Rodriguez

Beginning with their 1990 semi-final heartache against West Germany, England had previously lost all three World Cup shootouts and three out of four in the European Championship and they looked on course for another nightmare when midfielder Jordan Henderson saw his spot-kick saved by David Ospina.

The England squad will now face Sweden on Saturday, July 7.

Maradona also said Geiger should have penalised Kane in the build-up to England's second-half penalty, and criticised Pierluigi Collina, head of FIFA's referee committee, for allowing Geiger to officiate the match.

Brazil remain favourites at 11/4, while Harry Kane is odds-on at 1/4 to bring home the coveted Golden Boot.

Colombia manager Jose Pekerman expressed his anger towards the behaviour of England's players after his side exited the World Cup following a 4-3 penalty shootout defeat in the last 16, with the game level at 1-1 after extra time.

"We have fantastic supporters who have had to stand with us through decades of disappointment and this was a really special moment for our country", Southgate said.

"There were mixed emotions, highs and lows, even in the penalty shoot-out". It's a great and completely different test to the one we faced against Colombia. It showed our mentality.

If convicted, Stewart and Jones face a maximum possible sentence of life with no possibility of parole, while Neal faces life. Jones is being held on $3 million bail, Stewart is being held on $2 million bail, and Neal is being held on $1 million bail.

He said: "Clearly England are getting no justice with the VAR system because there is a clear altercation as Henderson is pushing the defender, but what you can see after that is the player puts his head on Henderson's chest, which is a yellow card, but he then moves his head up to the chin which is clearly violent conduct and a red card".

"This will give us more belief than ever, and the fans more belief than ever back home".

If England get past Sweden they face a potential semi-final against hosts Russian Federation or Croatia for their first appearance in a final since winning the World Cup for the only time in 1966.

"I think for them, definitely a big moment". We want to capitalise on it now.

"It was a good match, but (I'm) always disappointed when the game goes to penalties - it doesn't show the true potential of the team", said Emma Kinsey, 32, a yoga instructor from Lincoln who lives in Bogota. For some I think it's just cramp and some need more assessment. A poor Kyle Walker giveaway in the 81st minute nearly cost them, but Juan Cuadrado blazed over from a good position.

Upon arriving back at their training base the players were greeted by a breakfast spread of food and drink - and rather than retire after a long return journey, the players and staff were invited to stay up and re-live their individual memories.
