England Sink Colombia On Penalties To Advance To Last Eight

2018 World Cup Report: Colombia v England 03 July 2018

By SL International - Jul 03, 2018 10:58 PM
2018 FIFA World Cup, Round of 16
 
Result: Colombia 1 (3)- (4)1 England
 
Date: 3 July 2018
 
Venue: Otkrytie Arena
 
England advanced to the quarter-finals of the 2018 World Cup after defeating Colombia 4-3 on penalties on Tuesday evening.
 
The big team news pre-match came from the South Americans as James Rodriguez was unable to recover from his injury and was left out of the squad.
 
The Three Lions showed a lot of attacking intent in the early stages but they had to wait until the 15th minute for a chance, with Harry Kane heading over from Kieran Trippier's cross.
 
Colombia, meanwhile, were finding it tough to conserve possession in the first half, which left Radamel Falcao frustrated due to the lack of service.
 
The tempo of the game dropped with 15 minutes remaining in the half, as England had nothing to show for their dominance.
 
The Three Lions were afforded a chance to break the deadlock with a free-kick just outside the box but Trippier put his effort wide of the upright, while Jese Lingard volleyed over the crossbar minutes later before the break.
 
Southgate’s men started the second half better as they went forward in numbers and with pace.
 
Kane eventually got the breakthrough for England three minutes before the hour from the penalty spot after he was haggled and brought down inside the box following a corner, 0-1.
 
Colombia pushed for an equaliser but were vulnerable to counter-attacks by England with a quarter of an hour remaining, leaving gaps behind their defence.
 
Juan Cuadrado had a glorious chance to get Jose Pèkerman’s men back into the match after a glaring mistake at the back from Kyle Walker, but he fired over the bar from the right side of the box.
 
The South Americans were pressurising England with five minutes left and they were rewarded in the third minute of stoppage time, with Yerry Mina heading home from a corner for his third goal of the tournament.
 
Mina's equaliser forced the clash into extra-time, where the Colombians looked more likely to score although clear-cut chances were hard to come by.
 
Danny Rose nearly snatched the winner for the Three Lions eight minutes before time with a sweeping strike from the left side of the box that missed narrowly wide.
 
The clash eventually went to a penalty shoot-out, where Southgate's men held their nerve to triumph, with Jordan Pickford saving Carlos Bacca's before Eric Dier slotted home for England's first-ever shootout win at a finals, and earning a quarter-final clash against Sweden.

These Colombian HOOLIGANS are by far the worst behaving bunch filled with shameful unsportsman tendencies and distasteful show of ill-discipline. They held these useless ingrish by the scruff of their necks.......yet they waisted their energies on negetive behaviour than focusing on finishing this game. That FoulCOW donkey......is the main reason Colombia got knocked off. Such hooliganism yet you are charged with the responsibility to LEAD in the field if play. No wonder he is ex-this lucrative club and ex-that prestagious club footballer of note. He is a total shame to the game of football.

What I noticed in this Colombian team is that Katsande can fit, they don't mind playing an opponent instead of the ball. I pity their wives back home, for sure they all have wounds all over their bodies
