No, you didn’t dream it… England win World Cup match on penalties

No, you didn’t dream it… England win World Cup match on penalties

David Moyes says that Everton goalkeeper Jordan Pickford is England's best option between the sticks for the remainder of the World Cup.

Moscow police said they have detained a person after a statue was vandalised at the stadium where England played Colombia at the World Cup. Two years later, it was re-recorded with slightly different lyrics as "3 Lions 98" - and, of course, it resurfaces pretty much every time there's a footy tournament in which England are involved.

England captain Harry Kane has taken the decision to shut himself off from social media, in a bid to improve focus and reduce pressure.

With their dogged defending, tactical discipline, and reliance on penalties, own-goals or any other way possible to get the ball in the back of the net, Sweden haven't been the prettiest team to watch at the World Cup.

The knockout match against Columbia ended with a dramatic penalty shoot-out that ultimately saw England through to the Quarter Finals.

Croatia beat Denmark on penalties to reach World Cup quarter-finals
Croatia's midfield, which includes Luka Modric and Ivan Rakitic , has been as good as any at the World Cup . Croatia and Denmark can not be separated, with two wins each and a draw in their last five meetings.

"I never thought we'd win a penalty shootout", one fan told 1 NEWS.

Fans were quick to comment below Megan's post to congratulate them both. Those of us over 40 have waited a long time to win one of those.

"I've got that power and agility to get around the goal", Pickford said. "I don't care if I'm not the biggest keeper because it's about being there in the moment and making the save, and I was", he said after the clash.

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

"They are greater than the sum of their parts more often than not, so that is a hugely hard game for us".

English football is hugely popular in the Scandinavian country but the well-drilled Swedes will not be overawed when they face a team packed with Premier League stars who beat Colombia on penalties after a 1-1 draw on Tuesday.
