How do the World Cup quarterfinalists compare?

How do the World Cup quarterfinalists compare?

England's first ever penalty shootout win in a World Cup secured a quarter-final meeting with Sweden on Saturday afternoon.

Commenting on the win over Colombia in the shootout penalty series instead of a victory in regular time, Trippier said "If you have got opportunities at this level, you need to take them".

Having overcome Colombia on penalties in the last 16, England manager Gareth Southgate will probably feel his decision to field a second-string side against Belgium has been vindicated.

Uruguay's success has been built on a solid defence led by Atletico Madrid pair Jose Gimenez and Diego Godin, with the old-fashioned strike partnership of Luis Suarez and Edinson Cavani doing the damage at the other end with five goals between them. I said it two years ago when I was captain of the team: give these lads a bit of time, because I've seen the quality and the ability they all had. That leaves ample room already to note things such as that, when two teams walk out for the final in Moscow, Croatia could forge an astounding achievement for a country only 27 years old and with 4.2 million souls, or England.

Former Spartak players and members of the club's youth academy periodically lay flowers by Cherenkov's statue, honoring one of the team's most beloved former players. Ben Lyttleton, the author of Twelve Yards: The Art and Psychology of the Perfect Penalty, found that England players have historically had the shortest "reaction" time between the referee's whistle and the start of their run up. "England win on penalties (Yes really!)", the paper said.

"The World Cup is a very special global competition", he said. England has been hard done by penalties in the past, but now, we are making history!

With the likes of Harry Kane, Alli, Marcus Rashford, Jesse Lingard and Raheem Sterling in the squad, England have a unsafe attack, and Rooney hopes Southgate gives them freedom on the field.

England is now set to play in the quarterfinals of the world championship against Sweden in the city of Samara on July 7.

"But it's a dream match for our players-they were born to play in a match like this".

"We had the resilience and belief to get over the line", he said, praising the composure and discipline of his side in the face of rough treatment and a raucous Colombian crowd in Moscow.
