England have finally ended the decades long penalty jinx after beating Colombia on spot kicks at 4-3 to set up a quarterfinal match against Sweden.
The 3-Lions got on the score-sheet when Harry Kane netted his 6th goal of the tournament from the spot, 8 minutes after the break. But, Yerry Mina equalized in the 3rd minute of injury time with a towering header to send the match into Extra Time.
In the shoot-out, Colombian keeper David Ospina saved Jordan Henderson’s penalty to give Colombia the advantage, but Mateus Uribe struck the crossbar and Jordan Pickford denied Carlos Bacca brilliantly to give Eric Dier the chance to win it for England.
