'Kane is England's Messi or Ronaldo'

Before today England had lost six out of seven penalty shootouts in major tournaments - including an unwanted World Cup record of three - but the nation found redemption in stunning fashion with a win over Colombia in the Round of 16.

The FA has not yet confirmed when midfielder Fabian Delph will return to Russian Federation after flying back to England to be at the birth of his son.

Despite his error against Belgium, Pickford is expected to retain his place for England's knockout clash against Colombia.

"They don't have the Larssons, the Zlatans, the Ljungbergs, but what they do have is the same kind of thing that Iceland had in the last finals", he said on the latest World Cup Supplement podcast.

The vandalism prompted a storm of criticism of English fans on Russian social networks, with users calling them poor guests at Russia's World Cup.

"They might not play great football but they set a certain bar in terms of effort and organisation". Unfortunately, I didn't score but the other lads were brilliant, especially Jordan (Pickford) for making the save and Eric (Dier) handing us the win.

Not sure they'd be too busy for you today...


Rajon Rondo agrees one-year, $9 million with LA
The 23-year-old forward agreed to a two-year, $18 million contract with the Pelicans on Monday, according to a report from ESPN . In 12 National Basketball Association seasons, Rondo has career averages of 10.5 points, 8.5 assists and 4.8 rebounds.

"I believed our goalkeeper would save one, and the technique of our players in taking them was superb throughout". We were behind, and wanting Pickers to save one, and he did.

Colombia's hopes suffered a huge setback before kickoff when key playmaker James Rodriguez was ruled out with a calf injury and without him they took a defensive approach and never rarely threatened. "We have shown time and again that we are a team that no-one wants to meet, a team that allows very few goal chances", midfielder Gustav Svensson said after Sweden's third clean sheet in four games.

If they win they'll play either Russian Federation or Croatia, depending on who wins at 7pm on Saturday.
