England won a penalty kick shootout at a World Cup for the first, exorcising their demons from the spot to beat Colombia to advance to the quarterfinals.
A late Colombia equaliser forced extra time and had England fearing the worst but the Three Lions held their nerve defeating Colombia 4-3 on spot kicks.
Here’s how the world of social media reacted to the dramatic ending…

Wouldn’t be an England game without some North London derby banter. Three penalty kicks for Spurs players past an Arsenal ‘keeper was just too good an opportunity to pass up…
