England have qualified for the quarter final of the World Cup for the first time since 2006 after they dug deep to beat Colombia 4-3 on penalties in their Round of 16 tie on Tuesday.

The Three Lions had a lone goal lead courtesy of Harry Kane who scored from the spot in the second half and they were almost celebrating before Colombian defender Yeri Mina broke their hearts with late equaliser in stoppage time.

The development meant that the game went into extra time and there were no goals to separate the two teams.

With the teams unable to break the deadlock they were forced into a penalty shootout, which England won 4-3 and will now face Sweden in the World Cup quarter-finals on Saturday afternoon at the Samara Arena.
