Yerry Mina sends Colombia-England into extra time

Colombia boss Jose Pekerman hopes James Rodriguez will be fit to play England

England lacked such a creative force and their captain surged forward looking to change things. "We had a fair feeling - [Radamel] Falcao was the only one who didn't go the way we thought. If we think that this is a great opportunity, we have a massive chance".

He said: "There's some big teams gone out of the World Cup and this could be the year England can go far and hopefully win it".

The England-Colombia World Cup match was at times an ugly game, with Colombia slapped with six yellow cards to England's two. "Each one of us here is prepared and ready to play and whoever plays will do their best".

"We had good news after his medical tests".

England may have gotten the win on Tuesday, but the Colombians highlighted a key weakness for the Three Lions that could come back to haunt them later in the tournament. We knew what we had to do and we stayed calm. We always give everything for our country. Colombia are usually a team that plays with a smile on its face but, too often in this game, it was a nasty scowl.

Then comes a potential semi-final against hosts Russian Federation or Croatia with Tuesday's win appearing to vindicate - just - coach Gareth Southgate's decision to field a second-string side in the final group game loss to Belgium to secure an easier route.

The report directly contradicts President Donald Trump's claim that " there is no longer a nuclear threat from North Korea". Trump held a press conference to go over his historic meeting with Kim Jong Un today.

The Colombia camp are crossing their fingers over the fitness of James Rodriguez, the top-scorer at the World Cup four years ago, who limped off in their last group match against Senegal with what appeared to be a recurrence of a groin injury.

Social media reports indicate that the airport temporarily suspended all flights as Colombia and England's game went to extra time.

Sam Wallace, The Daily Telegraph: "Can Gareth Southgate's team switch back on?" They are expected to revert to the side that started against Tunisia in their first game.

Colombia manager Jose Pekerman is hoping that midfielder James Rodriguez will be fit for his side's Round of 16 clash with England on Tuesday night.

In the end, it came right down to the wire, with a tense penalty shoot-out that left Britons' hearts in their mouths.

Moments later, Jesse Lingard saw a near-post run blocked on the doorstep and second-half substitute Eric Dier missed the target with his wide-open header from the ensuing corner kick.
