England’s Stones labels Colombia ‘dirtiest team’ he has faced

"One or two of the Colombian players look like they are roughing up the penalty spot with their boots", alleged former England captain Terry Butcher.

"And that hurts, you have to try and stand in the shoes of these players". We knew that if it has to go to penalties, it has to go to penalties. They are subject to situations which shouldn't be present in football. "I don't think this is fair", an angry Pekerman told a news conference following the 1-1 draw in Moscow.

A host of yellow cards followed the first goal in the match for the both sides, but enjoying the 1-0 lead over Colombia, team England's defense obviously cemented its net waiting for the final whistle to signal their entry into the quarterfinals stage of the 2018 FIFA World Cup. These interruptions are bad.

Thankfully England were able to weather the storm: successfully navigating an improved Colombia from earlier in the game.

"I feel like we've started to connect the team with the public again. It's been absolutely obvious, too obvious".

"That's a great thing for a team to have".

At half-time, a member of Jose Pekerman's coaching staff, Eduardo Urtasun, was seen barging into Raheem Sterling, while he was on the receiving end of verbal abuse every time he went for a drink.

On the contrary, Colombia's barrage of attacks at English defence did not stop for the entirety of extra time but to their disappointment and by some highly questionable calls of the referee, the South American side just couldn't make an impact in the final half.

England will now face a spirited Sweden in a quarter-final match on June 7, Saturday and if Gareth Southgate looks to salvage anything from the match, he needs to infuse his team with a fresh and new philosophy.

They were denied an equaliser just before half-time when Lampard's effort clearly crossed the line - prompting Federation Internationale de Football Association to finally see the light on goal-line technology - but in truth Germany tore England apart and were worthy 4-1 winners. "It was a hard situation but one we've overcome and can be proud of". He didn't act with the same criteria for both teams.

Colombia's hopes suffered a huge setback before kickoff when key playmaker James Rodriguez was ruled out with a calf injury and without him they took a defensive approach and never rarely threatened.

The national teams, which cleared the round of Last 16, are hosts Russia, Croatia, Uruguay, France, Brazil, Belgium, Sweden and England. England, as I say, were by no means faultless in their conduct in Moscow but to suggest they were the main culprits is laughable.

Then, unlike so many times before, luck finally smiled on them in the shootout.
