The World Cup hit the pause button today as the eight remaining teams geared up for the quarter-finals after England became the final side to qualify following a penalty shootout win against Colombia.

Preston city centre ground to a halt on Tuesday evening as England fans celebrate the victory over Colombia.

Former Spartak players and members of the club's youth academy periodically lay flowers by Cherenkov's statue, honoring one of the team's most beloved former players. To state the obvious, neither result would in itself be good enough for England to progress on Saturday, and would force a penalty shootout. "I apologise to all the Colombia people, but they must know the players are not to blame", Maradona told Venezuela TV station Telesur.

WHY CROATIA WINS: The Croatians are just as balanced as Brazil or England - and might have the best box-to-box midfield tandem in Luka Modric and Ivan Rakitic.

And the former Burnley man revealed England's first-ever shoot-out win in a senior World Cup was honed during the hours of work in training in the build up to the competition in Russian Federation.

This has certainly been a World Cup of viral memes and funnies.

Which brings us full circle to England who, as previously mentioned, will face Sweden.

Now, thanks to Fortnite, that is looking more likely than ever before.

"We looked at individual technique, we looked at how we needed to be as a team".

"We will not be showing any further World Cup games, including the England v Sweden game this coming Saturday 7th, and in addition any future football tournaments".

Extra-time came and went as the match went to penalties, where the Three Lions won the shoot-out and their first knockout match since 2006.

"I had to cover my head with my Colombian flag and couldn't bear to watch the last two penalties".

It's clear that something important has happened and that the natural order of the world has changed, maybe we should start preparing for the end of the world. or maybe Gareth Southgate has been able to change the mindset of this young England side.

Argentina flirted with disaster in the group stage and although hopes were high that they could improve after beating Nigeria in the group stage, it was not to be.

Leicester forward Vardy ended the game with a groin problem which contributed to him not taking one of England's first five penalties.
