England fans relish 'best chance in decades' to win World Cup

  • England-Colombia

Maradona, whose famous "Hand of God" goal helped knock England out of the 1986 World Cup, nailed his colours to the Colombian mast after Argentina were eliminated at the hands of France and was pictured wearing the team's jersey on social media. "That's something that will live with me forever", said Southgate said after the game when reminded of the Euro 96 semi-final loss to Germany where he missed the crucial kick in the shootout.

"It is a blow for the whole group". "I cheered Colombia's goal as if I had headed it myself".

Mina, 23, signed for the Catalan giants from Palmeiras in January, but only appeared five times for them in the back half of the season.

"Goodbye Russia World Cup - with honour but without glory", headlined leading Colombian newspaper El Tiempo.

Last week, he said: "I've learnt a million things from the day and the years that have followed it".

England substitute Eric Dier scored the winning penalty for England, after Colombia's fourth penalty kick hit the crossbar and the fifth one was palmed away by England goalkeeper Jordan Pickford.

The midfielder was by far their best player four years ago as they reached the quarter finals and he won the tournament's Golden Boot and earned himself a move to Real Madrid because of it.

"The players have really executed everything (in the shootout) that we've talked about exceptionally well and we showed incredible resilience to come back from huge disappointment at the final whistle and keep our calm".

UMNO has led a multi-party coalition to govern Malaysia for six decades before losing the general election in May. Najib has consistently denied wrongdoing in dealings with 1MDB.

England must make sure that Jordan Henderson is not left alone in the midfield battle, with the inclusion of Eric Dier always an option if Southgate is overly anxious by such an issue.

People hurled plastic cups of beer in the air as hundreds jumped around and chanted "It's coming home". Or so we thought.

Mark Rock, 25, who lives Ashill, near Dereham, said: "It was good, brilliant, fully deserved, we go through on penalties, finally!"

England is advancing in Russian Federation after defending champion Germany was eliminated early and Argentina, Portugal and Spain went home in the Round of 16.

England have beaten Colombia on penalties.

"If we get through tonight I think we'll go all the way".

He added: "Colombia died standing".

Mr Clarke was not the only one backing the England captain to score, with Ladbrokes claiming one in two bets backed Kane to score. But it all fell apart two minutes later as Aron Gunnarsson's long throw caused chaos in the England defence and Ragnar Sigurdsson took advantage. "I apologise to all the Colombian people, but they must know the players are not to blame", Maradona told Venezuela-based TV channel Telesur.
