   POWER There are fears of a UK power surge as England take on Colombia

On a last-gasp corner, one that David Ospina came up the field for, Colombian defender Yerry Mina made clean contact with the ball and sent it into the turf. As they contemplated 30 minutes of extra time, Southgate huddled his young squad together and encouraged them to press the reset button.

Eric Dier scored the winning kick after Jordan Pickford's brilliant save from Carlos Bacca's attempt, with England's first ever World Cup shootout win setting up a meeting with Sweden in Samara on Saturday.

England train in the rain the day after their historic penalty shootout win over Colombia at the Fifa World Cup.

"Today we were on the receiving end of this but I hope it won't happen again.

But we did", Dier said.

"But we were very clear and once we'd assessed a couple of injuries that we had, we told the players who they were and they were ready". "We were calm. We stuck to our plan".

"That's why I didn't go there."

In what was a tough last 16 tie, England had to overcome a Colombia side that frequently resorted to unsporting tactics throughout the game, with Southgate stating how proud he was of the way his players conducted themselves in the face of Los Cafeteros' gamesmanship.

"We were so unlucky not to go through in 90 minutes", said Kane, who also converted his shootout kick along with Marcus Rashford and Kieran Tripper.

Bill De Blasio Calls for ABOLISHMENT of 'BROKEN' ICE
Nineteen senior Ice officials recommended such a split in a letter on Friday to homeland security secretary Kirstjen Nielsen. Ragsdale was Trump's first ICE chief but was dismissed after only 10 days. "I don't think ICE today is working as intended".

Amusing how he didn't mention Wilmar Barrios luckily escaping a red card after head-butting Jordan Henderson in the first half.

"One England supporter tweeted how proud he is to be English: "[Southgate's] compassion towards the Colombia players who were distraught at losing was humbling, he knows he's been there, the way this man conducts himself, his integrity/honesty/empathy is a joy to see".

A member of the Colombia coaching staff appeared to deliberately barge Sterling as the Manchester City player headed towards the half-time at the interval, escaping with just a telling-off.

England's Harry Kane scores a penalty during the shootout. They looked confident in defense, and the Colombians were unable to muster much excitement without James Rodriguez.

Alli almost added a second when his diving header at the far post flashed over the bar, with Lingard appealing for another spot-kick after he was caught by Davinson Sanchez.

But Mateus Uribe then crashed his shot against the bar from Colombia's fourth kick before Pickford's heroics.

The game was rowdy, earning players a flurry of yellow cards, and Colombia vociferously protested the call that lead to Kane's goal, the England forward grappling with Carlos Sanchez before the Colombian pushed him to the ground. "They are always more than the sum of their parts".
