After scores were level at 1-1 after extra time at Spartak Stadium in Moscow - it was England who cemented their spot in the World Cup quarter-finals after winning 4-3 on penalties.

Russian players were on their knees in exhaustion after defending for 120 minutes in Moscow with just 26 percent possession and they must now summon another huge physical effort, with Croatia expected to dominate the ball once more.

Even when England lost the toss on which goal to use, he said he was able to joke about it.

"Southgate's policy towards penalty takers is that they must be fit and comfortable to strike", said Wallace. England are second-favorite to win the tournament.

Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo may no longer be in town but there will still be plenty of stars on show in the quarter-finals, from Neymar to Luis Suarez, and Eden Hazard to Antoine Griezmann.

Former Arsenal manager, Arsene Wenger believes one of France, Brazil or England will win the 2018 FIFA World Cup in Russian Federation.

Nor does their World Cup record against the Nordic nation look particularly pretty.

England booked their place in the last eight by edging past Colombia in a penalty shootout on Tuesday to raise hopes of a first World Cup title since 1966.

"It was a night when I just knew we were going to get over the line", the coach told reporters after England had to mentally recover from a 94th-minute equalizer by Colombia and coming from behind in the shootout before reaching the quarter-finals.

With LeBron, Lakers suddenly a betting favorite
On Thursday, George told the Oklahoma City Thunder he's declining his US$20.7-million option for next season. The 76ers moved quickly to close on Redick's deal once LeBron James chose to join the Los Angeles Lakers .

And for England, three words sum up their entire experience at the World Cup.

Gareth Southgate and his men have been lauded as heroes in Russian Federation and back home and the way they've conducted themselves so far in the tournament has earned them high praise. "This will give us more belief than ever".

"He was very sick indeed by that time but said he couldn't tear himself away from the game". We started to make a couple of defensive errors and getting a bit edgy.

They've scored more goals (12) than any team at the tournament, while Brazil have conceded the least goals (1). Common thinking at the time was it was futile practicing penalties, given the inability to recreate the pressure of the shootout on the training field.

"They've really bought in to everything we've tried to do".
