England fan apologizes for defacing monument outside World Cup stadium

England fan apologizes for defacing monument outside World Cup stadium

David Moyes says that Everton goalkeeper Jordan Pickford is England's best option between the sticks for the remainder of the World Cup.

Sweden now await in the last eight and Southgate believes a first FIFA World Cup shootout win for England will give his side an important boost.

The 27-year-old is now England's chief set-piece operator and last season for Spurs he chipped in with nine assists, something that highlights how much of an attacking threat he can be.

In 1990, England lost to Germany 4-3 on penalties in the semi-final, in 1998, England lost to Argentina 4-3 on penalties in the Round of 16 while in 2006 they lost to Portugal 3-1 on penalties in the quarter-finals.

Harry Kane has significantly scaled back his social media usage as England vie for glory at the World Cup in Russian Federation.

England's Jos Buttler shared a video as the team watched the match in the dressing room yesterday.

"I don't think their players want to meet us".

"We knew we had extra-time and the penalty shoot-out".

Hours before the showdown with England in Moscow Escobar's brother, Sachi, told of his fears that another player could be killed if Colombia failed to get through to the quarter-finals, warning that the country "had not learned the lessons" of the tragedy.

Kane was successful again but England wobbled before Tottenham Hotspur's Eric Dier blasted home to spark scenes of delight in the Russian capital and in London.

"Where we are slightly in danger of tripping ourselves up is looking too far ahead, and thinking they are going to be a pushover", added Daily Mirror chief football writer John Cross. "I have got power and agility".

"We showed resilience to come back from huge disappointment and kept calm".

Russian police said they had arrested a fan over a vandalised statue outside the stadium where England played Colombia in Moscow.

"This round is looking very nice for us - Sweden is the best chance and then hopefully Russian Federation get through and we play them in the semi-final".
