  • England-Colombia

England beat Colombia in their only previous World Cup encounter thanks to goals from Darren Anderton and David Beckham in 1998.

Others were also agitated with Geiger's decision, including the 1986 World Cup Winner, Diego Maradona.

The Portuguese tactician singled out Maguire, accusing the Leicester City defender of diving to try to win a penalty.

They had nothing on target until injury time at the end of the first 90 minutes, and former England winger Chris Waddle called their 23 penalized fouls a "disgrace".

"The negative thing for me was the fact..."

"That was a trap we've fallen into in the past", he said, "I can see everybody is more excited, but we have to think separately, otherwise we just get carried away on the wave of emotion and we would not be thinking clearly about what we have to do".

Former Argentina World Cup victor Diego Maradona had also chimed in on the game labelling England's victory as a "monumental theft".

"I know they weren't happy with us before this match because there were lots of remarks, serious comments and unfounded comments. Colombia died standing. That's why I applaud them". Maradona had been photographed before the game wearing a yellow Colombia jersey.

Team England completed a list of the quarterfinalists at the 2018 FIFA World Cup after a 4-3 penalty shootout win over Colombia in Moscow on Tuesday night following their dramatic 1-1 draw of the closing match of the Last 16 stage.

She had announced previously that the flag would fly over her official residence on days on which England played.

Maradona further questioned Federation Internationale de Football Association referee Chief Pierluigi Collina's decision to appoint Geiger as the match referee.

"It is the man who decides who the referee is who is to blame", he said of Pierluigi Collina, the chairman of FIFA's referees committee. "He can not be put in to referee a match of this magnitude", he said.

When asked what his biggest objection was, he replied: "The penalty. In fact, it was Kane's fault", Maradona went on. The rules allow for VAR assistance, yes or no?

The second ball never actually entered the field of play due to the assistant intervening, and though the whistle had already gone, Bacca then slotted home for a goal that would have put Colombia 2-1 ahead.

"I screamed at Colombia's equaliser as though I had been the one to head that ball because it's not possible - you have to denounce this".
