England were almost through after 90 minutes, but a late header by Yerry Mina sent the match to extra time.
The English World Cup dreams are still alive after dashing Colombia’s hopes in a nerve-wracking penalty shootout. England defeated Los Cafeteros after 120 agonizing minutes, and that victory earned them a place in the national team’s history.
England had been involved in three penalty shootouts in World Cup history, losing every single one of them against Germany(1990), Argentina(1998) and Portugal(2006). But that’s all in the past, as a save by Jordan Pickford made way for their first victory of the sort in a major competition since 1996.
It will also be a day to remember for Jordan Pickford, as he broke a 20-year-hoodoo for England goalkeepers with his key penalty save today.
The Three Lions will now face Sweden in the FIFA 2018 World Cup Quarter-finals.
