Everyone Is Talking About Jordan Pickford's Performance Vs Colombia

Everyone Is Talking About Jordan Pickford's Performance Vs Colombia

Regulation ended 1-1 as Colombia canceled out a Harry Kane penalty-kick goal late in the match, and neither could find the victor in extra time.

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 edged the first half and Colombia should have been reduced to 10 men after Wilmar Barrios headbutted Henderson, yet he inexplicably only received a booking from referee Mark Geiger.

Barrios was instead shown a yellow card - one of six Colombia players to earn a booking - with Carlos Sanchez among those cautioned, the midfielder having been adjudged to have brought down Kane in the box.

England has ended a drought in World Cup shootouts to beat Colombia 4-3 on penalties and advance to a quarterfinal match against Sweden.

"I did all my research", Pickford said.

"I thought there were many, many fouls in the game". There were lots of penalty incidents with Panama and Tunisia.

"A player fakes a foul, they are trying to get the referee to book another player", he said.

Smith reported on " First Take " that James reached out to Kevin Durant to gauge his interest in joining the Lakers . James would be the 12th, which means Cleveland will only be looking to fill two or three open roster spots as it is.

"And that hurts, you have to try and stand in the shoes of these players".

I'll bet he bloody well feels like he is right now. These interruptions are bad.

When New Zealand fell into its national pit of despair after the Cardiff rugby World Cup quarterfinal in 2007, I genuinely couldn't understand it - this was just what England fans go through every time there's a football tournament. I don't care if I'm not the biggest keeper in the world.

"Today we were on the receiving end of this but I hope it won't happen again. It has been obvious, too obvious". Now coach Gareth Southgate will need guide his young players against an experienced Colombia squad capable of dominating both sides of the ball.

England is advancing in Russian Federation after defending champion Germany was eliminated early and Argentina, Portugal and Spain went home in the Round of 16. I don't think we conceded anywhere near the number as our opponents. "We kept our composure in a really hard environment and we deserved to win".

Jose Pekerman's side looked intent on outfighting England without injured star James Rodriguez, with the Three Lions' unhappiness at set-piece manhandling made clear early on.

Rodriguez is one of Colombia's most important players and won the Golden Boot at the 2014 World Cup after finishing as the tournament's top scorer.
