England vs Colombia 1-1 Highlights 3rd July 2018 FIFA World Cup Russia
The Three Lions can continue believing that it's coming home. In a wild and intense match against a James Rodriguez-less Colombia squad, England squeaked past Los Cafeteros in penalty kicks to reach thee World Cup quarterfinals. Regulation ended 1-1 as Colombia canceled out a Harry Kane penalty-kick goal late in the match, and neither could find the winner in extra time. England's Jordan Pickford made a massive save on Carlos Bacca and Mateus Uribe was denied by the crossbar in the shootout. Eric Dier converted the game-winning kick to advance.
Rodriguez was not available for the match after failing to recover from an injury from the last match.
The huge victory sends England to the quarters for the first time since 2006, but it did not come easy at all. It looked like England was in good shape to hold on to the win in the second half. They were threatening but couldn't crack David Ospina. That was until a soft penalty kick was awarded to Kane after he was fouled by Carlos Sanchez. Kane put away the penalty with class in the 57th minute.
