"I remember saying after that game that the only way we can move forward from this and get back in everyone's good books is at the World Cup in two years' time".

"I saw the game and I've commented on Colombia twice and I really enjoyed them and the way they played, they were excellent".

"His speed around the goal today, the saves he made at critical times and generally his distribution, there was some excellent moments picking out (Kieran) Trippier a few times with a reverse pass, able to play through the lines". "So, it's a huge moment for these players, but also the generations to come as well". Maybe it was a good height for the keeper if anything, it needed to be higher or lower but in penalties you can miss or there can be a good save.

Apparently nothing fazes Pickford, according to the man himself, who in June previous year became the most expensive British keeper in history after Everton paid Sunderland £25m for his services.

But Gareth Southgate told a press conference England's focus has quickly shifted to their last-eight showdown with Sweden in Samara.

Nick Kyrgios SLAMS former Wimbledon champion after ‘pathetic’ jibe
Win or lose, the 2016 Wimbledon junior finalist has assured himself another career-high ranking inside the world's top 70. Kyrgios , seeded 15, arrived at Wimbledon in good form after strong runs on the grass in Stuttgart and at Queen's Club.

Diego Maradona has apologised to Federation Internationale de Football Association and its referees for saying that England's last 16 win over Colombia in the World Cup was a robbery and that referee Mark Geiger was not up to the task.

England were leading through a Harry Maguire header with Sweden barely mounting an attack when Pickford showed great reactions to push away a Marcus Berg header. The pitch is always the same.

"I just work hard every day in training".

England had researched Colombia's penalty takers beforehand and Pickford said: "We had a fair feeling, and Falcao was the only one who didn't go his usual way". He has made a number of crucial saves for the Three Lions, with the penalty save (sticking out his left hand mid-air and palming the ball away) against Colombia proving the most important.
