Soham-born former Ipswich and Bury Town goalkeeper Pope, in Russian Federation as Gareth Southgate's third-choice goalkeeper, has played a vital role in England's preparation for penalty shoot-outs in training, with Dier insisting the 26-year-old deserves plenty of credit for his winning effort in Moscow.

England striker Harry Kane has been named the Budweiser Man of Tuesday's round of 16 clash between England and Colombia at the ongoing 2018 FIFA World Cup in Russian Federation. "I have got power and agility".

"Well I just did our research for starters", Pickford said to ITV.

Pickford had come in for some stinging criticism from former England defenders Gary Neville and Lee Dixon for his attempts at stopping Adnan Januzaj's victor during their last game against Belgium and Tuesday night's game, the 24-year-old was quick to respond to those critics.

Pickford deserved to have won the game a lot earlier on a tense night in Moscow.


Kane scored from the spot to hand England the lead in the 54th minute before Yerry Mina's goal in additional time gave Colombia a lifeline going into extra time.

"It was a top-class save. He was fantastic in the penalty shootout, he's big in goal, he's been brilliant in training and he's taken it into the game", he said.

"It was a top-class save, and I was surprised he could reach it given his height", the manager said. "I might be young but I've got good mental strength and experience and I used that today. We knew if it went to penalties we were capable of winning". Even after Tuesday's success, he admitted his miss in the Euro 1996 semi-final on home soil against Germany will live with him forever.

England had already waited too long to win on penalties.

Colombia slotted its first three attempts from the spot and England did the same with its first two before goalkeeper David Ospina dived full stretch to his left to stop Jordan Henderson finding the back of the net.
