Uribe's effort hit the bar before team-mate Carlos Bacca's strike was saved by Jordan Pickford and Eric Dier scored the decisive spot kick as England won 4-3 on penalties in the round of 16 clash in Moscow on Tuesday (Wednesday NZ time). "We had the belief and the resilience to get over the line".

"It's rather sad that they use such a festive and friendly environment as the World Cup to target a country and continue to stigmatise it with a completely unrelated issue", he said, according to the Guardian.

"Tonight was a classic example".

Thanks to Southgate's insistence that practice matters, England have belief under such pressure and they reaped the rewards in Moscow.

"Today is a special moment for this team".

"So it's a huge moment for these players, but also the next generations to come as well. In life, you always have to believe what is possible, and not be hindered by history or expectations".

Yet Henderson is aware that he owes Pickford after his shootout heroics.

Pickford was criticized after conceding Adnan Januzaj's victor in the group-stage loss to Belgium, including by his Belgian counterpart Thibaut Courtois, who said he was too small. "He's really athletic around the goal, he is excellent and he executed the plan in the penalty shootout".

Sweden now await in a mouth-watering Samara quarter-final on Saturday, which England approach buoyed by a display of character and coolness which belied the side's tender years.

He said: "As a brother who has gone through this, I know what must be going through their heads, and I wouldn't want anyone to go through that".

England manager Gareth Southgate likely was fine with that ratio, however, noting after the game, "I thought there were many, many fouls in the game and I don't think we conceded anywhere near the number of our opponents", per Stuart James of the Guardian.

"We practised and practised and it paid off", Kieran Trippier, one of the successful penalty takers on Tuesday, said.

"It's like a scene from "MASH" in the dressing room".

"I think England can go very far in this tournament". 'We're through and happy, we move on, ' he said.

Jose Pekerman's side received six bookings in a tempestuous match, but Maradona says Colombia can feel robbed and questioned the decision of Federation Internationale de Football Association referee chief Pierluigi Collina to appoint American official Geiger.

"It was very hard to get into the match".
