And this England does not lose on penalties.

Joe O'Neill, 27, of Hastings, who was cheering on his home nation - winners of the 1966 World Cup - from the Luna Beach Cinema big screen in Brighton, said: "I thought it was all over just before Colombia scored". Even if Rodriguez is out, Radamel Falcao and Colombia have enough firepower on paper to still come away victorious.

England have actually triumphed in a shootout before, but you have to go all the way back to Euro 96 when, with Stuart Pearce's passion to the fore, they defeated Spain in a quarterfinal at Wembley.

But mostly it's just been abject, from Poland at Wembley in 1973 all the way through to pretty much any performance you could mention over the past 15 years.

Beers were jubilantly tossed into the air, songs were belted out and strangers in fan zones embraced each other as England won their penalty shootout against a dogged Colombia.

In a group famously described as "EASY" - England, Algeria, Slovenia, "Yanks" (United States) - by one tabloid newspaper, they could only finish second which meant a last-16 encounter with Germany. In the early days, the likes of Pearce, Chris Waddle and current manager Gareth Southgate rehabilitated in terms of public affection by teaming up to advertise pizza in TV commercials that played on their misfortune from 12 yards. 1996. 1998. 2004. 2006.

Despite the Colombia players doing their upmost to put Kane off and even appearing to deface the pitch to interfere with the penalty, the Tottenham Hotspur striker stepped up and duly despatched the spot kick to put England ahead and take his tally for the tournament to six.

The win set up a quarterfinal match with Sweden on Saturday and ended a six-game streak of penalty-shootout losses for England in major worldwide competition dating back to 1990. "I've never really been in a situation like that before".

England finally ended their penalties curse when they beat Colombia 4-3 in a shootout, completing a nerve-wracking 120 minutes. Because England always loses when it goes to penalties.

Now at last our piece of toast has landed jam-side up. I'll still be pacing the room and peeping through my fingers if the Sweden game goes down to the wire.

The Man City midfielder flew back from Russian Federation last week as his wife was due to give birth. Before, and after, were those half-dozen penalty shootouts, and those half-dozen England defeats.

"His athleticism around goal is excellent and again he executed the planning in the penalty shootout".

"This will give us more belief than ever, and the fans more belief than ever back home".

My blood pressure and heart rate from the Colombia game are still outrageously unhealthy. An unlikely date with Sweden awaits in the quarterfinals on Saturday in Samara. He scared his flatmates and his partner today.
