  • RATING! 24 million viewers watch England make World Cup Quarter Final

Belgium goalkeeper Thibaut Courtois says he "never mocked" England's Jordan Pickford's height after the two sides met in the World Cup group stages.

Pickford used the information and admitted in post-match interviews that only Radamael Falcao had placed his shot differently to what he had expected.

Eric Dier's winning penalty against Colombia secured their first ever World Cup penalties victory and Southgate's men went to 8/1 from 9/1 on Friday to go all the way against Sweden as well.

"I've never really been in a situation like that before but felt I had to score after missing the header at the end, so I'm just thankful I scored", said Dier on ITV after the game.

Pickford then exercised his right to reply, saying that he "didn't care" about Courtois' comment and reminding us all that he did a rather good job saving Carlos Bacca's shootout penalty in Moscow a few days later.

Team England is not under any pressure of being obliged to reach the final of the 2018 FIFA World Cup in Russian Federation and is doing its work advancing to next rounds of the world championship, England's defender Kieran Trippier told TASS. "I have the power and agility".

Jamie Redknapp believes that the introduction of Eric Dier for Dele Alli against Colombia almost cost England a place in the last eight of the World Cup.

"I did all my research on them, for starters, so we had a fair idea", he told ITV.

"I've even got a bet on England to win the World Cup and Harry Kane to be the tournament's top goalscorer so both of those are coming off at the minute". 'I reward them now playing in front of big crowds and giving everything, ' he said. Getting over that line was huge for us. "Ideally, we don't want to be going to a penalty shootout but we are delighted for the fans and the whole country". We've moved on from Belgium and beaten Colombia - now it's Sweden to look forward to'. What he wouldn't want is history to repeat itself though.
