Alli eyes World Cup final spot after England penalty heroics against Colombia

  • England-Colombia

England finally overcame penalty-shootout curse after almost 30 years when they beat Colombia 4-3 in a shootout on Tuesday after drawing their World Cup last-16 clash 1-1 following extra time after the South Americans had equalised in the 93rd minute.

And let's not forget Colombian midfielder Wilmar Barrios escaped with only a yellow card after headbutting Jordan Henderson, when many would have been screaming "RED CARD REF".

Maradona, who is understood to receive $10,000 United States dollars a game from FIFA as part of its "Legends" ambassador programme, also said that FIFA's referees committee chairman Pierluigi Collina should "apologise to the Colombian people" because Geiger "knows a lot about baseball but has no idea about football".

"Last week, I promised to fly the flag of St George above Number 10 for all of England's remaining matches in the World Cup and I know the whole House will want to join me in wishing the England team the best of luck in Saturday's quarter-final", she said.

"Colombian captain Radamel Falcao also criticised American official Geiger, calling his performance a "disgrace".

"It's a shame James couldn't play", said lawyer Daniel Guerrero, 39, watching the game on a big screen at a mall in Bogota, where once noisy crowds fell painfully silent as Eric Dier scored the decisive penalty at the Spartak Stadium.

They had nothing on target until injury time at the end of the first 90 minutes, and former England winger Chris Waddle called their 23 penalized fouls a "disgrace".

England, as I say, were by no means faultless in their conduct in Moscow but to suggest they were the main culprits is laughable.

World Cup match report Mexico v Sweden 27 June 2018
The Swedes went through to the knockout rounds as the unlikely winners of Group F , taking the beaten Mexicans with them. Captain Andreas Granqvist puts the ball beyond the reach of Guillermo Ochoa to double the advantage for his side.

"Every team has lots of diving, lots of pretending, lots of putting pressure on the referee... the game loses quality... and for me that was the negative point".

The two Colombian footballers who missed penalties to hand England victory in their World Cup tie have received death threats.

"It was Kane's fault".

"My brother never received any threats, they just shot him dead in the most cowardly way". The rules allow for VAR assistance, yes or no?

"Here is a gentleman [Collina] who is the one who decides to choose a referee by just googling him".

"A man like that (Geiger) should not be put in charge of a game of that magnitude".

"They have a good group of young but experienced players", he said. "It is not possible, this has to be denounced".
