Eric Dier keeps cool ahead of penalty as England team-mates go wild

"I know they weren't happy before this match because there were lots of remarks - many unfounded comments - so I don't think this is fair", he said.

Colombia are roundly panned for their behaviour, with England captain Harry Kane and his team complimented for their coolness in the face of intimidation. I've got power and agility.

Next up for Gareth Southgate's side is a last-eight clash with Sweden in Samara with Maguire insisting the squad - which was the most inexperienced of all 32 nations at the start of the tournament in terms of worldwide caps - is mentally strong enough to cope with any challenge.

There was controversy in the first 45 minutes when Colombian midfielder Wilmar Barrios only got a yellow card after a VAR review, having headbutted England's Jordan Henderson in the penalty area.

England boss Gareth Southgate has commended goalie Jordan Pickford after his heroics in the team's shoot-out win over Colombia in a round of 16 match at the World Cup.

"A top-class save. I'm surprised he could reach it, given his height", Southgate said of the save from Bacca's penalty. "He was fantastic in the penalty shootout, he's big in goal, he's been brilliant in training and he's taken it into the game", he said.

"For me, it's to stay away from the hype of it all", he told ITV. "I would have caught it".

Courtois was not alone. "I might be young but I've got good mental strength and experience and I used that today".

But in refusing to dismiss penalties as a lottery like many of his predecessors, his attention to detail paid off.

"It's a great night to win a penalty shootout".

England manager Gareth Southgate has jumped to the defence of under-fire goalkeeper Jordan Pickford, urging him not to pay attention to critics.

Colombia's hopes suffered a huge setback before kickoff when key playmaker James Rodriguez was ruled out with a calf injury and without him they took a defensive approach and never really threatened.
