Wolverhampton pub erupts as England beat Colombia

Argentinian football legend Diego Maradona has claimed that Colombia were victims of a "monumental theft" in an extraordinary rant after their round of 16 defeat to England at the Fifa World Cup.

"It was a tremendous blow", he told Mundo Deportivo.

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.

Kane scored a combined five goals in the wins over Tunisia and Panama, and the Tottenham striker went close when his looping header back across goal landed on the roof of the net.

With the World Cup Round of 16 clash heavily poised at the Otkrytiye Arena, tensions began to rise and tempers were threatening to spill over after Barrios appeared to lash out at the Liverpool skipper.

"Me boy is a fuckin' hero", he shouts repeatedly at the screen, pointing to Pickford buried under a pile of jubilant England bodies.

"Now is not the time to talk about my future, but the World Cup has helped me reconnect and reaffirm myself as a footballer".

Earlier things had looked set to go pear-shaped when Jordan Henderson's penalty was saved, only for Mateus Uribe's spot-kick to rattle the bar and goalkeeper Jordan Pickford to deny Carlos Bacca. When there are so, so many fouls and interruptions I think that's not good.

"It was a good match, but (I'm) always disappointed when the game goes to penalties - it doesn't show the true potential of the team", said Emma Kinsey, 32, a yoga instructor from Lincoln who lives in Bogota. Under Roy Hodgson, the team got out of their group but came up short in a quarter-final against Italy in Kiev.

England manager Gareth Southgate speaks with Harry Kane and team mates.

England definitely has the offensive edge in this game, but Colombia can neutralize it if they can shut down Kane. "I've got power and agility".

Context, eh? They just managed to forget the fact that narco-terroism resulted in the deaths of thousands of Colombian people.

It was the 24-year-old's sixth goal at the tournament, which further extended the England captain's lead in the Golden Boot race. But from the moment they tugged and grappled England players at the first corner, it was clear that Colombia only had one approach.
