KXIP vs KKR Live Score

Diego Maradona says Colombia were victims of a "monumental robbery" against England and accused referee Mark Geiger of favouring Gareth Southgate's side.

England had defeated Colombia 4-3 (1-1) on penalties, for the first time in any major global tournament and they were in the World Cup quarterfinals after 12 years of leaden history.

Former England striker Gary Lineker laughed off Maradona's comments on Twitter, referencing the Argentinian's infamous "Hand of God" goal against England in the 1986 quarter-finals. "But we did", Dier said. "That needed a bit of a review as the players were being substituted". We've seen what they're like, how they play and we will take that in over the next couple of days.

The South American side fell behind in their knockout tie against the Three Lions through a second-half penalty and had six players booked over the 120 minutes before losing 4-3 in the shootout.

Even his dad, Leif, also a former professional player, describes him as "without a doubt the most boring player to interview". If the Three Lions had pipped Belgium to top spot in Group G they could have played the Samba Boys in the quarter-finals.

Southgate believes, however, that winning against Colombia was a crucial turning point.

"I wish I was wrong, but as from the next match I think England will be much more careful".

"When you play against a team like that who want to fight, disturb your momentum, you can sometimes get dragged into it and that's what they want".

Sterling also overcame Colombia's attempts at dirty tricks.

"You can talk about things, but the reality of executing it [penalty] under that sort of intensity is a different matter". Standing in their way are Sweden, who saw off Switzerland earlier on Tuesday. In a World Cup full of thrilling unpredictability, the only downside has been some of the appalling indiscipline.

"Some things I hadn't even seen, the incident with Raheem and one of their staff - I've never seen a game like this before and how they behaved", he said. "That will hurt them the most". "The Colombian players asked for VAR (Video Assistant Referee intervention) and he did not give it to them". Playing against them is really hard.

Impressed with the determination of his teammates after the final whistle - per Federation Internationale de Football Association app - captain Kane declared: 'This will give us more belief than ever and give the fans back at home more belief than ever and we're just looking forward to the next one'. "We knew what would get thrown at us and that was kinda silly from him", he added.
