Shootout salvation at last for Kane-inspired England

Shootout salvation at last for Kane-inspired England

The Spurs midfielder was a special guest on Wednesday's edition of the Lions' Den, following his match-winning penalty in the victory over Colombia the previous night.

"It was a nervous one", Dier, who came on for Dele Alli late on, told ITV afterwards.

As the game entered stoppage time he flew high to his left to turn Mateus Uribe's blistering long-range effort behind.

England face Sweden this Saturday afternoon in the World Cup quarter-finals where the victor will face either Croatia or hosts Russian Federation next week.

"I know the whole country will have wanted me to save it and hopefully I put some happy faces on people on the way to work".

"He has made a name in his short career already as someone who has a great record for saving penalties and I wasn't surprised to see him make that great save".

"To get knocked down like we did is hard to come back from".

"Me boy is a fuckin' hero", he shouts repeatedly at the screen, pointing to Pickford buried under a pile of jubilant England bodies.

The researchers involved in the latest work even extracted stem cells from the embryos to create more of these hybrid embryos. The idea that assisted reproductive technology might play a role in species conservation has been around since the 1970s.

"I only said that, because he got a touch, I would have saved it because I am 15 centimetres taller, but I never mocked his height".

The 24-year-old shot stopper starred in the penalty shoot-out against Colombia and has gained plenty of plaudits. They will now be hoping he can help England get even further in this World Cup now.

"I might be young but I have got good mental strength and experience and I used that today".

England coach Southgate said the penalty shootout triumph will "give belief for generations to follow".

"Darlington can't take much credit for where he is now but we handed him the opportunity and he passed it with flying colours".

Can we just go ahead and forget about this whole daft faux-kerfuffle now?

Last week there were similar scenes in the Peterborough bar as England fans celebrated Harry Kane's penalty against Panama and his last minute goal against Tunisia.
