Maradona: Referee ‘Stole’ Victory For England Against Colombia

Hopefully, all the players will be fully recovered - and caught up on their sleep - ahead of Saturday's quarter-final with Sweden. Everyone has been overly-positive in the last week.

And they could well lose to Colombia in the round of 16.

"We are quite stable even when things turn hard".

Too often in the past us England fans have taken too much for granted. Having been rested last time out, he will come roaring back here with a thirst for more goals. Is it finally okay to like England? They have only made the semi-finals of a major tournament three times in history. Playing against them is really hard.

His pick of Colombia only caused more World Cup disappointment for him as, despite the team's "s--house tactics", England prevailed right at the end of the match.

The Three Lions can continue believing that it's coming home.

England's only goal within the game's 90 minutes, was scored after Geiger awarded England a penalty kick.

"I've said it from the start - I'd love to win the World Cup", he added.

The two Colombian footballers who missed penalties to hand England victory in their World Cup tie have received death threats.


Gareth Southgate's side are favourites with the bookmakers, but it has been hard to judge just how good they are.

It also beat England's narrow win over Tunisia, which peaked with 18.3M and a 69% share.

"I think if you say it's an easy game in a quarterfinal of a World Cup, then you are pretty stupid to say that", the Manchester City defender said. "People should also look at England's players".

England definitely has the offensive edge in this game, but Colombia can neutralize it if they can shut down Kane.

"For me, it was one of those games that was so unusual".

"The final score showed the English winning, but they were booed off the field by many in the crowd of 34,520". You have to try and stand in the shoes of these players. When you play a team that want to fight and disturb your momentum, you can sometimes get dragged into it.

Maradona didn't hold anything back as he spoke about the refereeing in the match, which he watched as a Colombia fan after Argentina's exit to France at the weekend.

The game was well up on England's dead-rubber loss against Belgium in the group stages, which drew a peak of 18.6m and a 72% share.
