Arsene Wenger's prediction about Jordan Pickford backfires after England beat Colombia

England-Colombia GETTY England vs Colombia Gareth Southgate has labelled the game as the biggest in a decade

It was the most intimidating atmosphere England have experienced so far this World Cup, the players being jeered as they entered the pitch for the warm up.

Gareth Southgate's side had been seconds away from the last eight during normal time, with Harry Kane's penalty after he was fouled by Carlos Sanchez in the box - his sixth goal of the tournament - looking as though it was going to send them through.

Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho was surprised by England's antics against Colombia, criticising defender Harry Maguire for diving.

Uribe's penalty rebounded off the crossbar while Jordan Pickford saved superbly to deny Bacca from the spot.

Maradona has argued that it is actually the English that was guilty of such tactics and even accused the Three Lions of "theft".

England will face Sweden in the quarter-finals.

"For me, it was one of those games that was so odd", he said.

England will tonight be facing Colombia, in a game which they must win if their dream of lifting the World Cup this year is to come to fruition. We'll smile and be happy and say "Well done lads".

Colombia's media also praised what they saw as a gutsy performance by their team, who were without injured Bayern Munich midfielder James Rodriguez.

Later reflecting on Colombia's equaliser on his show, he said: "I cheered Colombia's goal as if I had headed it myself".

"The best thing for us was to beat them at football", said Stones.

The game was often reduced to farce with lengthy delays as players surrounded referee Mark Geiger to contest decisions.

"But we have played tough matches that have made us stronger, more confident and with more belief in ourselves".

England fans were also unimpressed with the refereeing on Monday night, believing Colombia's Wilmar Barrios deserved a red card when he headbutted Jordan Henderson shortly before half-time.

"Football should be a vehicle of peace and social transformation, and at the end of the day, it is just a game".
