Oh, the drama. England were so close to booking their place in the World Cup quarter-finals in normal time but a late equaliser saw Colombia force extra-time.
It became a survival of the fittest as both nations entered extra-time.
Gareth Southgate, who has deserved the praise he’s received all summer, made some abysmal substitutions and left Marcus Rashford sat on the bench when the Three Lions needed a goal.
British pundits will complain for the foreseeable future about Colombia’s playacting, but if England were capable of such shithousery their tune would be very different.
The teams couldn’t be separated after extra-time, so we headed to penalties. A late shift for reporters on the ground.
Marcus Rashford came on after ‘113 minutes and scored England’s second penalty.
Admire Rashford immensely for that penalty. 20 years old and he takes one of the most seemingly nerveless spot kicks you’ll ever see in a #WorldCup shootout.

Watch Rashford’s goal below.
Southgate must have paid attention to Betway’s method of winning a penalty shoot-out as the spot-kicks on display were of a high standard.
