COLOMBIA 1-1 ENGLAND (aet, 3-4 on pens) - MARTIN SAMUEL AT THE SPARTAK STADIUM: When it came down to that last one, when England were one penalty kick away from a World Cup quarter-final, we peered, a nation anxious to see who would step forward from the pack. Jamie Vardy, who takes them for Leicester, was unused. Jesse Lingard had apparently been banging them in during practice. Walking towards the end lousy and noisy with yellow shirts... Eric Dier. Dier, a defensive midfielder or centre half, fifth at best in the penalty ranks at Tottenham. Dier, ordinary against Belgium in his only start of the tournament. Dier, who had a pass completion rate of less than 25 per cent in his first 24 minutes on the field here. Dier? Anchor man penalty-taker? Dier? Have we taken leave of our senses? Apparently not. Gareth Southgate, more than any England manager, knows the agony of the shootout. That was one of the reasons he had his squad going through the routine, day after day, in training. With hindsight, why did we ever doubt?

Forsberg's lucky strike sends Sweden through to World Cup quarter-finals for first time since 1994... where England await
SWEDEN 1-0 SWITZERLAND - IAN LADYMAN AT SAINT PETERSBURG STADIUM: This was an earnest game of football, played by two limited sides hoping that method and organisation and endeavour would be enough to see them through.

A diver, faker and an embarrassment: Neymar should be grabbing this World Cup by the scruff of the neck - but his cheating has left us all exasperated
At a time when the world should be lauding Neymar for grabbing this World Cup by the scruff of the neck and leading his country's charge to an unprecedented sixth trophy, we are simply left seething by his histrionics. For all of Neymar's innate ability with the ball at his feet, his often mesmerising Samba flair, his talismanic status within a footballing nation steeped in such rich history, there is one sizeable problem which is losing him fans by the thousand with each passing tumble. His record-shattering move to Paris Saint-Germain last summer was, to all intents and purposes, an attempt to leap out of the grand shadow of Lionel Messi at Barcelona.

Stepping over the line! A staggering 15 of the 19 shootout penalties at World Cup saw goalkeepers move forward before the shot... so, why aren't refs clamping down on blatant cheating?
It is arguably the most frequently broken rule in football and Sunday's World Cup last 16 clashes once again provided a number of examples of goalkeepers leaving their lines early to save a penalty. Russia's Igor Akinfeev, the great Dane Kasper Schmeichel and Danijel Subasic of Croatia were all guilty of stepping towards the ball before it had been kicked. Spain's David de Gea was the only one to stand his ground. FIFA's rules clearly state this is illegal. Yet, despite the use of VAR in Russia and referees standing just yards away from the goal, none of the stoppers were picked up on their foul play.
