May couldn't watch 'nerve-wracking' England shootout win

Jordan Pickford of England makes a save during the 2018 FIFA World Cup Russia group G match between England and Belgium at Kaliningrad Stadium

Meanwhile, NAIJ.com had earlier reported Diego Maradona claimed the referee helped England to beat Colombia in the round of 16.

Pegged back late by a Colombia equaliser, England were forced to settle the game from the spot, where they had lost in all three of their previous attempts at the World Cup and six of seven in major tournaments.

England manager Gareth Southgate said their shootout victory over Colombia at the World Cup on Tuesday will give the team "belief for generations to follow".

"I don't care if I'm not the biggest keeper, I've got that power and agility and I'm very good at penalties".

"It's a night when I knew we were going to get over the line".

Southgate also said he was not surprised by the physical approach from the South Americans.

Southgate's confidence about penalties is somewhat surprising given England had only won one shootout in their history - but this was reward for months after hard work and preparation.

Another key way of improving England's poor penalty record included taking part in indoor golf-putting competitions.

He reserved special praise for Pickford, who made a magnificent save to keep out a spectacular strike from Uribe before a vital stop in the shootout.

"You don't always get what you deserve in life but tonight I think we did".

England recovered manfully from the gut punch of seeing Harry Kane's spot-kick cancelled out in stoppage-time by Yerry Mina, which took the match to extra-time and eventually penalties with the score remaining 1-1.

"His attitude is brilliant and he's been brilliant in training and taken it into the game".

England had already waited too long to win on penalties.
