England Boss Reacts To Colombia Win

05 July, 2018, 01:11 | Author: Anita Tucker
  • England defender Harry Maguire is ready to face Colombia

He said: "The goalkeeper is 10cm smaller than me".

The England captain faced a lengthy wait as several Colombia players protested to the referee but he kept his nerve to beat north London rival Ospina, lifting his penalty just over the Arsenal goalkeeper's outstretched leg.

"Of course some keepers are 6ft 6in, but they have attributes that they're not so good at".

Harry Kane extended his lead in the race for the Golden Boot from the spot to open the scoring in Moscow and was just as deadly with England's first penalty in the shootout.

And the versatile England global hailed Pickford after his heroics helped to extend England's stay at Russian Federation 2018.

Another said: "That was Mateus Uribe's last game, the man is already dead".

Warriors Rumors: Golden State Interested in Free Agent Jamal Crawford
Following the 2018-19 season, Durant can pick up his option, worth $31.5 million, or become an unrestricted free agent once again. The move, first reported by LeBron's own agency , sees James move out west to join a Lakers team that finished 35-47 last season.

"'We had to make a couple of changes because of injuries during the extra-time period", said Gareth Southgate after the game. "His athleticism around the goal is excellent and he executed the plan in the penalty shootout".

However, England boss Gareth Southgate's meticulous preparation for penalties paid off as for the first time in four attempts at the World Cup, England emerged victorious from the spot.

"For me personally, it's the right decision", Rooney told ESPN.

'I would have caught it.

Courtois was not alone.

The former Aston Villa defender suggested that he disagrees with those who blame Pickford for Januzaj's goal.

Neymar dazzles and disappoints as Brazil reaches World Cup quarters
During the win over Costa Rica in the group stage, Neymar tried to win a penalty by flopping to the ground in the area. Mexico's World Cup is over, ending in a 2-0 loss to Brazil on a sultry Monday evening at Cosmos Arena.

"It was a top-class save, and I was surprised he could reach it given his height", the manager said.

Southgate has suffered more than most from England's penalty torture in the past.

Could football finally be coming home this summer?

But in refusing to dismiss penalties as a lottery like many of his predecessors, his attention to detail paid off.

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

Neither side broke the deadlock in extra-time, and so England were faced with two options: finally break their penalty hoodoo or face an early flight home from Russian Federation.

Cavs having 'good dialogue' with LeBron's management team
The Cavs could attempt to draft Young tonight if he is available at the eighth spot as a selling pitch to James. Even a minor-league baseball team, for goodness' sake, has given its all to try to recruit King James .
