England’s Stones happy to send ‘dirtiest team’ Colombia home from World Cup

James Rodriguez

The referee came under criticism from both sets of players with Falcao accusing him of favouring England and English fans blaming him for not punishing Wilmar Barrios's headbutt of Jordan Henderson, but Sterling believes that his side should get credit for how they reacted regardless of the refereeing errors.

Maradona, who is understood to receive $10,000 U.S. dollars a game from FIFA as part of its "Legends" ambassador programme, also said that FIFA's referees committee chairman Pierluigi Collina should "apologise to the Colombian people" because Geiger "knows a lot about baseball but has no idea about football".

Maradona was at the match as a guest of Federation Internationale de Football Association and was pictured before the game wearing a Colombia shirt.

But Stones made a nonsense of Maradona's allegations, saying: "I'd never seen a game like that before and how they behaved". I apologise to all the Colombian people, but they must know the players are not to blame.

"We shouldn't only look at Colombian players, people should look at England players".

"I told (FIFA president) Gianni Infantino that, if I worked for Federation Internationale de Football Association, I would change everything". It has to be transparent.

"I know they weren't happy with us before this match because there were lots of remarks, serious comments and unfounded comments".

Trump started applying freakish restrictions, tariffs under the guise of national security, which is, of course, ludicrous. Some have already launched retaliatory measures and filed legal challenges with the World Trade Organization.

England took the lead early in the second half with Harry Kane successfully converting a penalty.

When England started their FIFA World Cup 2018 journey, they showed much promise with their attacking and cohesive displays on the field but as the pressure has started to mount on the Three Lions, they have slowly become individual and ineffective units resulting in an absolute crisis.

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.

"The penalty was not a foul".

"It was Kane's fault". [The players] are creating such a hard job for the referees in every match, even with VAR the players are creating problems. "I found it peculiar that they put an American referee in this instance".

It was left for Dier to score and the Tottenham Hotspur defender did so with perhaps the worst penalty of the night, but it didn't matter any longer because England were playing Sweden on Saturday, in their easiest ever quarterfinal since facing Cameroon in Itlaia '90.
