Gareth Southgate Returned To The Pitch To Thank Fans After Full Time

Gareth Southgate Returned To The Pitch To Thank Fans After Full Time

England's first ever penalty shootout win in a World Cup secured a quarter-final meeting with Sweden on Saturday afternoon.

The first: that Germany always reach the latter stages of global tournaments.

Penalty hero Marcus Rashford trained with England's back-ups the day after helping Gareth Southgate's men to a memorable World Cup shootout win against Colombia.

An impressive France side made Argentina's weaknesses all too clear and with Messi out of form and surrounded by players who are simply not good enough to win a World Cup, defeat seemed inevitable.

When our World Cup semi-final went to penalties against West Germany in 1990 the first thing I was thinking was: 'I hope I don't have to take one.' I was concerned with crossing the halfway line, never mind taking penalties, at that time. They are very solid and really tough.

"I say it all the time though, with the spirit of the team, we carried on how we were playing and didn't change anything and we believed".

The 31-year-old came on late against Colombia, and was expected to take England's decisive penalty.

During the win over Costa Rica in the group stage, Neymar tried to win a penalty by flopping to the ground in the area. Then, things took a darker turn when Layun appeared to step on Neymar following another altercation on the touchline.

Team England is not under any pressure of being obliged to reach the final of the 2018 FIFA World Cup in Russian Federation and is doing its work advancing to next rounds of the world championship, England's defender Kieran Trippier told TASS. Of their nine World Cup goals so far, seven have come from dead ball situations (including three penalties).

The national teams, which cleared the round of Last 16, are hosts Russia, Croatia, Uruguay, France, Brazil, Belgium, Sweden and England.

England have put their fans through misery over the years, but one fans suggested that the Three Lions may go a step further and "kill" him.

For all the drama around England, the victor of the tournament is more likely to come from the top half of the draw, where the teams can boast a combined eight tournament wins.

Russian Federation take on Croatia for the chance to play either Sweden or England in a semi-final.

And when Jordan Henderson missed his penalty, it looked as if England were staring at another heartbreaking exit from a major tournament. Kane's Tottenham Hostpur teammate, Dele Alli, has previously streamed his games on Twitch and both of them have played with Fortnite sensation Tyler "Ninja" Blevins in the past.

"But it's a dream match for our players-they were born to play in a match like this".
