  • Which player will win the Golden Boot at the World Cup

After scores were level at 1-1 after extra time at Spartak Stadium in Moscow - it was England who cemented their spot in the World Cup quarter-finals after winning 4-3 on penalties.

A hardy contingent of Colombia fans, however, hung tough. They play in Nizhny Novgorod on Friday.

England went ahead with a 57th-minute Harry Kane penalty after the forward was wrestled to the ground but Pekerman said England's players were constantly attempting to force decisions.

WHY CROATIA WINS: The Croatians are just as balanced as Brazil or England - and might have the best box-to-box midfield tandem in Luka Modric and Ivan Rakitic.

Even if you can't give the current England side any credit for scraping their way into the quarter-finals, there's one thing you have to give the English credit for.

After securing England's first-ever shootout win in World Cup history on Tuesday night in Moscow, the players, understandably, looked to be in a buoyant mood.

Neymar is a world class footballer who does not need to exaggerate when he is fouled because it does not earn him any sympathy, claims Lothar Matthaus said.

The Swedes maintain the most recent bragging rights as far back as a 2012 friendly (4-2), though, despite an English victory in the two sides' most recent competitive fixture (3-2 in Euro 2012), they have drawn all four of their previous World Cup meetings.


"We saw a hard match and this does not mean that England have not done well", Pekerman said, adding that his team had also failed to pose a greater threat in the area.

According to Sky Sports, Vardy has since had an injection in the injured area, and is now seen as doubtful for England's quarter-final clash against Sweden on Saturday.

He went on to manage England in the 1998 World Cup, where they lost to Argentina in the second round.

England's only goal within the game's 90 minutes, was scored after Geiger awarded England a penalty kick.

The tense penalty shootout at the climax of England knockout match was all too much for some, with heart rates reaching 145bpm.

Russia: The hosts have delighted their public by surpassing all expectations to make it to the last eight thanks to a stunning penalty shootout elimination of 2010 winners Spain.

Uruguay's success has been built on a solid defence led by Atletico Madrid pair Jose Gimenez and Diego Godin, with the old-fashioned strike partnership of Luis Suarez and Edinson Cavani doing the damage at the other end with five goals between them.
