England can not be hindered by history, says Southgate

Grant SmithJul 06, 2018

"Jordan (Pickford) is a fantastic goalkeeper and deserves everything, ' Dier added".

'MIRACLE!' - In the seconds after England's penalty shootout win, the Mail claim "the explosion of relief must have been heard in space."

But, as we already know, there are no draws at this late stage in the competition - and the English have already rid themselves of their penalty curse.

"Before the tournament [Gareth Southgate] has given us everything that could be thrown at us - every single possibility from going behind to the opposition trying to get you yellow or red cards. The goalkeeper's very important in that".

It was a sweet moment for Pickford, and for his manager Gareth Southgate, whose decision to back the 24-year-old despite his inexperience and leave 75-time capped Joe Hart out of his squad was vindicated. For [Kane's] penalty we stuck together and we were trying to get the players away from each other.

"We then had to keep our discipline several times, which was outstanding. I am proud of the discipline". "I'm surprised he could reach it, given his height", Southgate quipped.

"I don't know if I "didn't expect it" but we didn't rise to it, which was brilliant", he told ITV.

Next up is a quarterfinal clash against Sweden, and Southgate vowed to keep marching forward for the fans who made the trip to Russian Federation.

"I think we need to try to defend football and I think we should do a little more to try and prevent certain situations knowing they might arise".

There was joy and relief in the English media on Wednesday morning after England beat Colombia 4-3 in a dramatic penalty shootout in Moscow to book their place in the World Cup quarterfinals.
