England were within touching distance of the quarter-finals when Yerry Mina towered above everyone else and hammered the ball in to the back of the net in stoppage time from a Colombian corner and forced the game into extra-time. That period had a lot of attacks and wayward shots but no goals. It came down to penalties and England, who have a miserable record with shootouts in major tournaments, held on and nailed their shots. Jordan Pickford saved Carlos Bacca’s effort and England thus made it into the quarter-finals. It is the first time that England have ended up on the winning side after a World Cup knockout game has gone into penalties.

Colombia vs England Live Score FIFA World Cup 2018 Live Streaming: Colombia forward Radamel Falcao has put his hapless stints at English Premier League clubs behind him and wants to deliver in their World Cup round of 16 against England on Tuesday. The forward spent a season each at Manchester United and then Chelsea between 2014 and 2016 but failed to make any impact, before returning to Monaco.

He managed just one goal in 10 top division appearances at Chelsea, nine of which were as a substitute in 2015/16, after having netted four times in 26 Premier League matches for Manchester United the season before. On Monday he said he had no feelings of revenge when Colombia meet England in Moscow's Spartak Stadium but was ready to deliver a fine performance.

"It is true that I did not shine as I had wanted in England but that is part of the past," said the 32-year-old striker. "Tomorrow's game I only can say that it is beautiful to be here to play against England and all our players are very well prepared. It is a game we always dreamed of playing. Since we were young children we wanted to play something like this," he said.

Colombia lost their Group H opener to Japan but beat Poland and Senegal to advance to the knockout stage. England, however, had booked their knockout stage spot after two victories in their first two group matches, resting several players in their final group loss to Belgium.
