Vile death threats sent to Colombian players who missed penalties against England

Now, images of Southgate being consoled 22 years ago and being the consoler after Tuesday's game have emerged online, prompting praise for Southgate's compassion towards Colombia's Mateus Uribe, who missed his spot-kick.

With the game precariously-tied at 1-1, the match went into extra-time and then penalties.

Kane, Marcus Rashford and Kieran Trippier also converted for England in the shootout, sparing Jordan Henderson from a lifetime of ignominy after his penalty kick, England's third, was saved by Ospina.

England's youthfulness combined with decades of soccer pedigree carried them through the Group stage rather effortlessly.

Gareth Southgate's rejuvenated England side who have breathed a new life into English football with fans really starting to believe the Three Lions can go all the way in FIFA World Cup 2018 in Russian Federation.

England manager Gareth Southgate likely was fine with that ratio, however, noting after the game, "I thought there were many, many fouls in the game and I don't think we conceded anywhere near the number of our opponents", per Stuart James of the Guardian.

Then, unlike so many times before, luck finally smiled on them in the shootout.

Missing a vital penalty for your country is something Southgate knows all too well after the former England defender crucially failed from the spot against Germany in their agonising semi-final defeat on penalties at Wembley in Euro 1996. "It's actually coming home, isn't it!?"

England is advancing in Russian Federation after defending champion Germany was eliminated early and Argentina, Portugal and Spain went home in the Round of 16.

"I'm already thinking about the next game". "That hasn't been good for us".

"I did a whole bunch of research", Pickford said.

Asked on England's chances in the rest of the tournament, he added: "Final mate, we got it, we got it in the bag".

A total of 44,190 spectators attended the match at the Spartak Stadium.

England fans were less outnumbered in Times Square, Newcastle, where the 2,000-odd crowd was overwhelmingly and unapologetically partisan.

Yet Colombia did not learn their lesson as Carlos Sanchez, once of Aston Villa, was penalised for dragging Kane to the floor at an England corner.

Supporters hugged and danced when the penalty was given and the fans' zone erupted when it was tucked away.

Erika Rodriguez who was born in Britain but whose family are from Cali in Colombia, said the loss "just sucks".

"These people are just lowlifes who are not real Colombian football fans, who should be arrested and thrown into jail". "I hope it will give belief to generations of players that follow, because they can see what is possible in life".

"You have to try and stand in the shoes of the players".
