Tottenham's Harry Kane reacts on Twitter to England's dramatic win

Watch: Even Colombia cat wants England to lose at FIFA World Cup 2018

In a World Cup of surprises, England provided the latest by finally winning a penalty shootout.

When Colombia did eventually manage to find a way back into the game deep into injury time in the second half they continued their gamesmanship taking their time walking back to the other side of the pitch, delaying England's tip off.

Carlos Bacca then saw his attempt well saved by Jordan Pickford before Tottenham's Eric Dier sealed England's progression to the last eight for the first time in 12 years. They have some good players, but I don't think they will be able to cope with England's high-pressing game.

Radamel Falcao headed wide of Pickford's post in the 104th minute - the Monaco striker under heavy pressure from Maguire who did well to throw him off.

"I've got power and agility to help me get around the goal, I don't care if I'm not the biggest keeper because it's about being there in the moment and making the save and I was".

Then comes a potential semi-final against hosts Russian Federation or Croatia with Tuesday's win appearing to vindicate - just - coach Gareth Southgate's decision to field a second-string side in the final group game loss to Belgium to secure an easier route.

I'll bet he bloody well feels like he is right now.

LeBron James Could Reportedly Sign With The Lakers Before Another Star Arrives
The latest ESPN story suggested that former first-round pick Josh Hart could be involved in a trade with the Spurs. That pick could be used to sweeten a prospective trade opportunity.

It was a stunning end to normal time that left England ragged and reeling. "But we were ready for that". "When you look at the players they've got in the team and the way the qualified in their group as well, they've got some quality players and we need to be aware of that". Cool as you like, he hit the back of the net, sending the ball past David Ospina in the Columbia goal and sending the whole of England wild.

The piercing sound of horns and cheers of Colombia's football fans fell silent after their World Cup dreams were shattered in a nail-biting last-16 loss on penalties to England on Tuesday.

Lingard is seen as one of the key players keeping the atmosphere in the squad light and he said that the mood among the players has been flawless. "I've never been in a stuation like that before, but I felt like I had to score with the header I missed at the end", Dier added to ITV.

What can we say in response? His attitude is brilliant and he's been brilliant in training and taken it into the game. "We were calm. We stuck to our plan".

There were a lot of things to love about England's penalty shoot-out win against Colombia on Tuesday.

"We are so unlucky not to go through in 90 minutes". "No one laid on the floor and we stood there when it counted". "It was a big night for England". Both the teams have often shown that they are prone to errors on the field. "This has made us stronger, more confident and we believe more in ourselves".
