KXIP vs KKR Live Score

This is very hard to accept.

Too often in the past us England fans have taken too much for granted.

The Andean nation's capital, Bogota, came to a standstill as people tuned in to watch the "Cafeteros", with electrifying roars and loud gasps surging throughout the city each time either team came close to scoring.

England will play Sweden at the Samara Arena at 3pm on Saturday.

England had lost five successive shootouts before luck finally smiled on it at the compact Spartak Stadium. "I've never really been in a situation like that before".

Diego Armando Maradona has slammed Federation Internationale de Football Association for what he called a "monumental theft" against Colombia following their loss to England in Tuesday's World Cup match. For context, Germany have won 45 knockout ties.

Colombia had the same record as England, but they were the only team to win two games in the group, in games against Poland and Senegal.

Gareth Southgate's team won a penalty shootout - which came after 28 years of penalty pain for England, so it was sort of a big thing.

It also beat England's narrow win over Tunisia, which peaked with 18.3M and a 69% share.

Colombia's aggression angered England players throughout the match, particularly when Wilmar Barrios escaped a red card for what appeared to be a deliberate head-butt on Jordan Henderson in the buildup to a free kick. "I apologise to all the Colombia people, but they must know the players are not to blame", Maradona told Venezuela TV station Telesur. However, he hasn't looked match fit at this tournament, so it's not clear if he'll feature against England or not. They were threatening but couldn't crack David Ospina.

"I'm already thinking about the next game".

Incredibly, someone has logged on to change.org and started a petition to try and get FIFA, the world football governing body, to replay the game.

As quoted by Sky Sports, he said: "Players fall in the box, they collide and fall".

Led by attacking talisman Radamel Falcao, the veteran will be aiming to prove himself to English fans after an indifferent spell in the Premier League with Manchester United and Chelsea. It should be a close game, with England having the advantage.

"The referee disturbed us a lot, in the 50-50 plays, he always made the calls in favour of England".

The Golden Boot victor at the 2014 World Cup lasted only 30 minutes in their 1-0 victory over Senegal that saw them advance through the group stage.
