England have finally broken their penalty shoot-out curse.

The team triumphed 4-3 from the spot, after the tie finished 1-1 following extra time, to secure their first World Cup win on penalties.

The Mirror labelled them: "Snarling, cynical Colombians", while the Sun said: "Brute Force - Kane 'n Co hold their own in street fight".

England had never won a penalty shootout at the World Cup before Tuesday and Eriksson believes overcoming that barrier will prove to be a big boost in the latter stages of the tournament.

The Three Lions have quietly gone about their business in Russian Federation so far, but with only eight teams left the role of underdog no longer fits them. "I don't want to go home yet".

Former Spartak players and members of the club's youth academy periodically lay flowers by Cherenkov's statue, honoring one of the team's most beloved former players. They are very solid and really tough. Brazil are 11/10 to win on Friday, with the draw at 12/5 and Belgium at 13/5.

The Times announced drily: "Souvenir edition - commemorating an England penalty shootout win".

Emil Forsberg scored the only goal of the match in the 66th minute to send the Scandinavian side into the quarter finals.

Meanwhile, Jeremy Corbyn wants the whole United Kingdom to get a day off if England win the World Cup in Russian Federation. The hosts continued their remarkable run by knocking out tournament favorites Spain on penalties.
