England Reach First World Cup Quarter Finals Since 2006 With Penalty Shootout Win Over Colombia


Gareth Southgate’s young England team beat Colombia on penalties Tuesday night to reach their first ever world cup quarter finals since the 2006 tournament in Germany.

England seemed destined to take the game in 90 minutes, having taken the lead via a Harry Kane penalty — but they conceded in the last minute of regulation time to drag the game to penalties.

Centre back Yary Mina headed in a corner in injury time to level the game, repeating the feat he chalked against Senegal a few days ago.

Despite the dramatic nature of the equalizer, the last minute goal turned out to simply be a 30 minute reprieve as England won the resulting spot kicks.

Jordan Henderson missed England’s third penalty to send shivers down British spines but Colombia missed their next two before Eric Dier scored the winning kick.

Sweden won the first Round of 16 game of the day, beating Switzerland 1-0 and would now face the English in the third quarter final game Saturday afternoon.
