England v Columbia is not a pretty game. How the Columbians still have that many players on the pitch I don't know, and the Russian equivalent to the AA needs to put some signs up for England saying "The goal is this way >"

England relying too much on PKs!!



Well, another 30 minutes of tension.

Harry Kane has been getting abused this entire WC.

Those of you who are more savvy/in-tune with the England National Team; why no Vardy?

Itís now can we hold our nerve.
I think Vardy on is a good thing in that maybe, just maybe, his pace will get in behind the kickers, divers, moaners and downright cheats.

For someone like me who doesnít normally watch football ,it seems even the VR man was against our team ,if ever a player deserved a RED CARD  NOT  A YELLOW  one the guy who head butted our player DID .
Added to that I saw my son with the team  at the end when they were all congratulating each other .They deserved to win after all those fouls.

I am  with you on that one Bob the fouls tonight where atrocious. I would have red carded two of there team unfortunately the other one was there own manager/coach who hit Sterling with his shoulder while he was walking off after first half.

What can I say.

Have been watching Portsmouth FC and England for so many years now that I thought my body would be used to possible elation but normally impending doom.

Think the heart rate has calmed now.  :claphappy:  :claphappy:  :claphappy:

I hope the neighbours were watching it with the TV turned up as our 4 dogs got very, very noisy with my celebrations.

Cheers weave  :beers:  :beers:  :beers:

Well I'm not normally a fan of international football. But this tournament has been fantastic. Really enjoyed Japan v Belgium and tonights fest of penalties was just briliant - well the result was the right one - the footballing team won.
And I agree with @Newportnobby Gareth deserves the man of the match. The worst decision we (the Boro) ever made was to sack Southgate.

all of couse IMHO

i'm part Scotch and part English.Normally support Scotland , but this time have to watch England,
who played well against a bunch of riff raff . Top marks to Gareth Southgate who has conducted
himself with dignity.

Well done England.
Colombia could play (and play well), they proved that beyond doubt in the 2nd half and the first half of extra time. But they very much got what they deserved for that first half performance.
England held their nerve, took the aggro largely with good grace and for once won the penalty competition.
Roll on the next match (only problem is.....I wonít be able to watch it).
