England's penalty shootout drama reels in TV viewers

In one half, England, who played their one final when they won the title in 1966, and Sweden, who lost to Brazil on home soil in the 1958 final, will meet in Samara on Saturday with a last-four clash against Croatia or Russian Federation awaiting the victor.

Players stepped up and performed when their nations needed them most, but there are only 11 places in our team of the last 16.

The spokesman said any bank holiday would have to come soon after the match and would cover the whole of the United Kingdom, and not just England.

"We have fantastic supporters who have had to stand with us through decades of disappointment and this was a really special moment for our country", Southgate said.

The man who came so close to setting another English World Cup catastrophe into motion, Barcelona center-half Mina has established himself as one of the world's finest defenders with his performances in Russian Federation - and, in something of a rarity for a defender, he finds himself listed among the top scorers in the competition with three goals in as many games.

The Three Lions booked a quarterfinals clash with Sweden after beating Colombia via penalty shootout on Tuesday night.

Harry Kane has revealed the secret to the England football team's current success at the World Cup and yes, you guessed it, it's Fortnite Battle Royale! "This will give us more belief than ever".

Luka Modric and Co needed penalties to beat Denmark - after Modric himself missed a penalty in extra time that would've wrapped things up.

England's only goal within the game's 90 minutes, was scored after Geiger awarded England a penalty kick.

"They are tough", Southgate told ITV about shootouts. England lost its semifinal to West Germany in Turin on penalties before well-behaved fanatics.

They're going to fancy themselves to stymie an England side that might not have the ingenuity to break them down.
