COOLEST MAN IN RUSSIA
Dier fires England into the World Cup last eight
JORDAN PICKFORD helped England end their penalty shootout hoodoo and reach the World Cup quarter-finals at the expense of Colombia in Moscow.
Things looked set to go pear-shaped when Jordan Henderson’s penalty was saved, only for Mateus Uribe’s spotkick to rattle the bar and goalkeeper Pickford to deny Carlos Bacca.
Eric Dier, though, kept his composure in the Spartak Stadium cauldron, propelling his side to a famous 4-3 shootout win after it ended 1-1 after 90 minutes and extra time. Sweden now await in a mouth-watering quarter-final in Samara on Saturday.
