  • RATING! 24 million viewers watch England make World Cup Quarter Final

England goalkeeper Jordan Pickford has responded to the jibe from Belgian counterpart Thibaut Courtois after saving Carlos Bacca' spot kick during his side's round of 16 penalty shoot out triumph at the ongoing 2018 FIFA World Cup in Russian Federation.

That was somewhat overshadowed by Colombia equalising from the resulting corner but Pickford got his moment in the limelight with a shootout save as England triumphed on penalties.

England meet Sweden in Samara on Saturday with a place in the semi-finals of the tournament up for grabs. I think you'd be better off putting an attacking midfield player.

However, thanks largely to Jordan's Pickford heroics, both in normal time and in the penalty shootout, England have banished the demons that have haunted them for well over two decades.

He told Liverpool's official website: 'I didn't see it today, but so far he's played a brilliant World Cup - very mature, a proper leader in the team and you can see it.

"I actually predicted we would get knocked out to Colombia in the last 16 so I was already anxious".

"I just want to be playing in the biggest matches against big teams".

"I did a bit of research and we knew Bacca was maybe a bit of a weak link on the penalties from watching his previous ones", he said "I trusted my instinct and went that way.strong hands, I'm happy".

Girlfriend Megan is out in Russian Federation to support Pickford, and last night posted two pictures of herself on Instagram, one before and one after the penalty shootout.

"It was a tough game, we knew it would be, it was a little bit different to what we are used to but I thought we coped with it well, handled the game well and controlled it well apart from the late goal", he said.

But now it's been taken a step further and Colombian fans have launched a petition demanding that Federation Internationale de Football Association replay the game on "fair play grounds" - clearly the irony has gone over their heads.

"The referee disturbed us a lot, in the 50-50 plays, he always made the calls in favour of England", said Falcao.

The Tottenham midfielder scored the decisive spot-kick to help Gareth Southgate's men set up a quarter-final clash with Sweden following a 1-1 draw in Moscow.
