Colombia fans mourn World Cup shootout loss to England

Raheem Sterling and Jesse Lingard

Two years later, England's World Cup ended in the same fashion.

Penalties were the nightmare scenario for England fans, who know their team's sordid shootout history. "I've never really been in a situation like that before but felt I had to score after missing the header at the end so I'm just thankful I scored", he said.

But the Three Lions are heavy favourites to progress, according to bookmaker Ladbrokes, which said it was the most most popular England match ever with punters.

"I did a whole bunch of research, " 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".

England trailed, 3-2, in the penalty shootout after Jordan Henderson's shot was saved, but Mateus Uribe hit the bar and goalkeeper Jordan Pickford then saved Carlos Bacca's kick.

"You don't always get what you deserve in life but I think we did against Colombia".

A goalless 120 minutes meant another shoot-out for Sven-Goran Eriksson's team, and missed spot-kicks from Frank Lampard, Steven Gerrard and Jamie Carragher allowed Ronaldo to apply the killer blow to England's so-called "Golden Generation". Ahead of England's match against the South Americans in Moscow, the newspaper splashed the following message on their frontpage: "As 3 Lions face nation that gave us Shakira, great coffee, and er, other stuff, we say.GO KANE!"

"We were trying to download the app to watch it or considering scaling the fence to get to the nearest pub, but then it came back on so we were rewarded for our patience".

"When the screen cut out I thought this was a classic English thing to happen. It's coming home, it's coming home!"

"We knew that if it has to go to penalties, it has to go to penalties".

Red Square, in the centre of the capital, was awash with bright yellow and red and white as Colombian and England fans posed for pictures next to St Basil's Cathedral.

Alli almost added a second when his diving header at the far post flashed over the bar, with Lingard appealing for another spot-kick after he was caught by Davinson Sanchez.

Another added: "This photo of Gareth Southgate consoling Uribe after he missed a penalty has got me all choked up again".

Until they equalised in the 93rd minute, Colombia's main tactic for this game appeared to focus upon turning it into a negative, cynical battle for a place in the quarterfinals.

The 22-year-old has been with the England 'keeper since she was just 14, and moved to Liverpool with him after he signed for Everton in 2017. I apologise to all the Colombian people, but the players are not to blame for this.
