England beat Colombia 4-3 on penalties after an ill-tempered 1-1 draw in Moscow to set up a World Cup quarter-final with Sweden.

Carlos Bacca missed the all-important spot-kick as England reached the quarter-finals for the first time since 2006 with their first ever World Cup shootout victory.

Harry Kane's sixth goal of the tournament from the penalty spot gave Gareth Southgate's men the lead after 57 minutes but Yerry Mina's 93rd-minute header sent the game to extra-time.

A gripping match ended in dramatic fashion as after Jordan Henderson and Mateus Uribe missed from the spot, Jordan Pickford kept out Carlos Bacca's attempt before Eric Dier kept his cool to send England through.

It was they who created the first opportunity after 16 minutes as Kieran Trippier combined with Jesse Lingard down the right to cross for Kane to head over at the far post.

The main flashpoint of the first period came with five minutes remaining as Wilmar Barrios appeared to bump his head into Henderson's chin inside the box as England prepared for a free-kick, but American referee Mark Geiger brandished only a yellow card.

Lingard blazed over when well placed in first-half stoppage time before a tense half ended with Sterling being barged as he left the pitch by Colombia's fitness trainer Julio Urtasun.
