England's John Stones says Colombia are 'dirtiest team'

England's John Stones says Colombia are 'dirtiest team'

A petition to have England's World Cup last-16 clash with Colombia replayed has garnered over 190,000 signatures.

Key incidents included Wilmar Barrios somehow avoiding a red card for a blatant headbutt on Jordan Henderson inside the penalty area, and Carlos Sanchez rugby-tackling Harry Kane from a corner - leading to the 57th minute penalty that was so coolly dispatched by the England skipper.

England kicked Colombia out of the 2018 World Cup after a dramatic penalty shootout - and Diego Maradona, who was supporting Colombia- is outraged.

The game peaked with 24.4m linear viewers as goalkeeper Jordan Pickford made a courageous save after it looked like England would fall to the inevitable with Jordan Henderson missing his spot kick.

Of his six goals, three have come from the penalty spot.

England will take on Sweden on Sunday morning in their quarter-final.

Asked to expand on the other Colombian spoiling tactics, Stones said: "I'd rather not say, otherwise I reckon it could get me in a bit of trouble.

They drank and chanted, increasing the volume as a group of colourfully dressed Colombians passed blowing vuvuzelas, the plastic horns that were made famous at the South Africa World Cup in 2010 and have been an irritant ever since.

If they are to progress further, and stand any chance of confirming their fans' hopes of winning the World Cup for a second time, they have to show they are good enough tonight.

'The goalkeeper has no worldwide experience, I have not seen anyone win the World Cup who has been decisive in some moments, ' Wenger told beIN Sports before England faced Colombia.

"It's a shame James couldn't play", said lawyer Daniel Guerrero, 39, watching the game on a big screen at a mall in Bogota, where once noisy crowds fell painfully silent as Eric Dier scored the decisive penalty. "That will hurt them the most".

He may have now renewed that rivalry by claiming the referee for Tuesday's showdown should not have been "in charge of a game of that magnitude" as he "has no idea about football".

Lest we forget it is but two years since everybody seemed to have England paired up with France in the Euro 2016 quarter-finals already without even considering what a mess they could make of Iceland at this exact same stage. "We shouldn't only look at Colombian players".
