England Punched In Face In Draw But Win On Penalty Shoot

The adrenaline was tense throughout the 90 + 3 minutes longhaul game between the Columbians and England.

Referee blew the final whistle ending the match that can be described as a painful but also healing draw at Spartak Stadium.

In the penalty shoot out, England emerged winner for the first time in World Cup history and has advanced to the quarter-finals to face Sweden.

After the last whistle, England gathered on the field to compose themselves while Colombia earnestly celebrated their equaliser, and potentially their ticket to the quarter-finals at England’s expense.

Colombia tried to put more pressure on England’s backline, but a gap opened up and England found spaces to build up their game.

The match entered stoppage time when England was still in the lead.

However, as strnage things happen on the pitch, Columbia’s Mina headed in an equaliser for Los Cafeteros at the death to keep their World Cup dream alive.

Trippier was on the goalline standing next to the post, but he was unable to clear Mina’s shot off the line.

After shaking the England net, the whole stadium erupted and got rid of all of the anxiety that was there before and started chanting “Colombia, Colombia, Colombia!”

Mina’s healing equalizer was his third goal at Russia 2018, equaling the World Cup record for most goals by a defender in a single World Cup set by Germany’s Paul Breitner in 1974.
