  • England will face the winner of Sweden v Switzerland if they beat Colombia

Yerry Mina headed in an equalizer in the third minute of stoppage time.

The Round 16 concludes with one of the most intriguing matchups of the tournament thus far, as Colombia and England-two potential final candidates-meet in Moscow on Tuesday.

Sweden now await in a mouth-watering Samara quarter-final on Saturday, which England approach buoyed by a display of character and coolness which belied this group's tender years. Goal-scoring chances likely will be at premium, which leads us to believe this will be a hard-fought, but low-scoring, game.

England's players fumed and Harry Maguire called for the video assistant referee, yet referee Geiger inexplicably only handed out a booking when information came through his headset.

Jerami Grant Reportedly Agrees to 3-Year, $27M Contract with Thunder
The Clippers also will soon meet with guard Kentavious Caldwell-Pope, who played for the Lakers last season, an executive said. Maxing out George will push the Thunder far over the luxury-tax line if they re-sign key reserve Jerami Grant .

"We are a better team than four years ago", explained goalkeeper David Ospina to reporters, adding that the experience and unity in the current squad gives them a great chance of prevailing.

England's Manchester United forward Jesse Lingard says Gareth Southgate has brought about a revolution with the national team and vows they won't change their positive approach for Wednesday's last-16 clash with Colombia.

Germany Have Been Knocked Out Of The 2018 World Cup
But a 2-0 defeat to South Korea in the third group game sealed their fate and sees them heading home early. After a "dark day" for German football, as Neuer put it, the future looks bright.

"It would be nice to knock out England as they eliminated us from the France World Cup in 1998", she said. The Daily Telegraph says that head coach Jose Pekerman was "very worried" about Rodriguez's injury and Colombia "will be holding their breath" for news on the 2014 World Cup Golden Boot victor.

While the English may already be planning their World Cup celebrations, Pekerman and his side will be thinking otherwise and they certainly posses enough quality to book date with either Sweden or Switzerland in the last eight of Russian Federation 2018.

Harry Kane's penalty against Colombia in the World Cup last-16 tie made him the first England player to score in six consecutive internationals since 1939. One more save from England, and a final goal from Dier clinched it - England won 4-3 in penalties. He said: "It's going to paralyse the country - even people who don't like football get involved, and the team unites us".

"If you think back to 1990 where we had Cameroon and Belgium to get to a World Cup semi-final, we've now got an opportunity to play Colombia and Sweden or Switzerland to get to a World Cup semi-final", he continued.
