World Cup big guns primed for quarter-final battles

Jordan Pickford of England makes a save during the 2018 FIFA World Cup Russia group G match between England and Belgium at Kaliningrad Stadium

The music streaming service took to Twitter today to announce the song was played over 450,000 times through their platform on the day of England's victory against Colombia on Tuesday (4 July), which saw them make a historic World Cup win on penalties.

When Jordan Pickford pulled off a spectacular save from Carlos Bacca it all came down to Eric Dier to seal England's first ever World Cup penalty shoot-out win.

The game peaked with 24.4m linear viewers as goalkeeper Jordan Pickford made a courageous save after it looked like England would fall to the inevitable with Jordan Henderson missing his spot kick.

England ACTUALLY won a penalty shootout last night. The celebrations, however, did not end in the field as Southgate and his boys took to social media to express their delight.

It is reported that hours before the showdown with England in Moscow, Escobar's brother, Sachi feared another player could be killed if Colombia failed to get through to the quarter-finals, warning the country "had not learned the lessons" from the tragedy. "I don't want to go home yet".

Keith, whose company Aero Legends run flights out of Headcorn Aerodrome near Maidstone, Kent, believes the Spitfires should guide England's team home even if they go out on Saturday.

"SPOT-PICK HERO" - More penalty puns from the Star on the back page with Pickford's save the focus, after England "finally ended their penalty hoodoo".

"Jordan (Pickford) is a fantastic goalkeeper and deserves everything, ' Dier added".

"I never thought we'd win a penalty shootout", one fan told 1 NEWS.

He said: "We wanted to recognise their achievement and show the best side of England".

"England have a great aerial threat: they collide and fall in the box, there were penalties against Panama".

"He's a good player and it will be good for him to be playing against top-class players, but it's hard to say if he would break into one of the top four sides in England at the moment".

Colombia coach deliberately elbows England player - shocking!

"I think we need to try to defend football and I think we should do a little more to try and prevent certain situations knowing they might arise".
