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

We'll never know for sure why England are notoriously bad at penalties, but all signs are pointing towards that stereotype shifting.

The 24-year-old saved Carlos Bacca's spot-kick as the Three Lions booked a quarter-final showdown with Sweden, winning 4-3 on penalties following a 1-1 draw.

Henderson was anxious when his miss gave Colombia the advantage in a nerve-shredding conclusion to an absorbing encounter in Moscow.

The loss of James, who played sparingly in Colombia's first and third matches and sat out the Cafeteros' round-of-16 loss Tuesday night to England in a penalty shootout due to a calf injury, was a particularly tough blow.

"I wasn't born the last time England reached a World Cup semi-final (in 1990)".

There was a time not that long ago that some people thought Joe Hart should still be England's number one, even on the eve of the World Cup many felt Jordan Pickford wasn't the right man- how wrong they were.

It is reported that hours before the showdown with England in Moscow, Escobar's brother, Sachi feared another player could be killed if Colombia failed to get through to the quarter-finals, warning the country "had not learned the lessons" from the tragedy. But we knew what we had to do and we stayed calm.

"To come through all of that - we've spoken to the players about writing their own stories".

"After I made that first save from Marcus Berg with the header that was me set for the rest of the game", Pickford said on Saturday.

"I'm just delighted that we got through and hopefully we can keep building and keep going on".

"He said to me "well done you fellow Mackem".

"I just work hard every day in training, and that's why I got a clean sheet tonight, because all the saves I make in training I showcase them on a matchday".

Kelly, now employed by Everton working with their keepers at Under-23s level and younger, went to the World Cup twice with the Republic of Ireland. "It will give us huge belief. We work hard as a team".
