Jordan Pickford: England 'knew we had this game' even on penalties

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

Tempers flare during the first half of England's Fifa World Cup round of 16 match against Colombia. Only two outfield players from the side that started against Belgium are likely to start this last-16 game.

England substitute Dier missed the best chance of the extra period when he headed over the bar but he made up for it in emphatic fashion with the winning penalty in the shootout.

As the two teams get ready to battle each other for a spot in the Quarter-Final, we run the rule over the two squads.

Kane leads the race for the Golden Boot but was kept in reserve by Gareth Southgate for a 1-0 defeat to Belgium that meant the Three Lions finished second in Group G, to keep him fresh for England's last-16 clash with Colombia.

Gareth Southgate insists he knew England would get over the line during a dramatic penalty shoot-out victory over Colombia. "No one laid on the floor and we stood there when it counted".

The World Cup match between Colombia and England will be broadcast live on Fox. One player who could lose his spot in the starting lineup though, is Dele Alli.

They are sure to be in Samara too, for the quarter-final that now follows; yet another tournament encounter with Sweden.

FIBA World Cup qualifying game turns into brawl
The action for which everyone actually turned up to watch did continue, briefly, with the game being played 5 v 3. From there, things get insane , with benches clearing and all-out chaos. "Chris certainly is shaken up".

Thunder's Paul George decides to become free agent
The season didn't go as planned, however, as Anthony underachieved and Westbrook had to carry the team on his back for many games. George, a native of Southern California, and LeBron James are the focus of the Lakers free agent recruiting efforts.

Evidence suggests spiritual angle after 11 family members found dead in Delhi
Devi's grandson, Ketan Nagpal, said the family members were killed and someone was trying to mislead the investigation. Calling it a mass murder, a media report said that it was an insider's job, who was under some tantrik's influence.

Meanwhile, Colombia forward James Rodriguez - the top scorer in Brazil four years ago - hasn't found the net, and it's not certain he'll get a chance to change that against England because of a calf injury. Should that be the case, Loftus-Cheek will slot in the midfield alongside Jordan Henderson.

David Ospina had the only meaningful save of the half to make in the sixth minute when he was forced to punch away Ashley Young's free-kick from an acute angle on the left.

Former Premier League referee Mark Clattenburg - who has been working with ITV during their coverage of the World Cup - believes the referee made the incorrect decision and that Barrios should have seen red.

Lingard, whose long-range goal in England's 6-1 win over Panama has been one of the highlights of the team's performances, says he is enjoying his role as part of a trio operating behind striker and captain Harry Kane.

That wasn't the case this time though and, as practically all of Twitter is pointing out on Tuesday night, football might indeed be coming home.

By then the majority of his players had been out to, again to applaud England's supporters but also to celebrate with their families. Both the teams have often shown that they are prone to errors on the field. But England were more composed, more confident, never mind more honest against a South American side that at times were disgracefully cynical.

"And they are greater than the sum of their parts more often than not".
