SCORE: Colombia 1-1 England
At the death. Mina equalises for Colombia with a headed strike. We're going to extra-time.
What a game this has turned out to be ...
92' The Colombia crowd are a rowdy bunch here as Uribe lets fly with a magnificent shot from over 25 yards.
Pickford flings himself across goal and makes a superb finger-tip save.

81' An awful mistake by Walker as Bacca nicks the ball off him. Its three on two now as Colombia attack.
Bacca plays in Cuadrado, who hits his effort well over the cross bar from 18 yards.
80' Fortunate to have last this long, Alli is off for Dier.
Southgate shutting up shop.
77' Sterling leads a counter-attack with Young on his left but opts to run into the middle. Lingard joins him and sprints forward to offer him an option to this right. Sterling feeds him. Lingard goes down in the box under a tackle by Sanchez.
But the ref rightly decides that there was no foul. No penalty!

Thanks for joining us and we look forward to your company in the quarter-finals! Have a great evening! Cheers!
So in the end, England win 4-3 on penalties! A nail-biting finish to the game and I'm sure Southgate will be a relieved man. Colombia are gutted. They came really close but this is the first time England have won a penalty shootout in a World Cup!
GOAL!!! Colombia 3 - 4 England!
Eric Dier with all the pressure and a chance to become a hero...and he does! He finds the bottom left corner and England are through!
SAVED! Colombia 3 - 3 England!
Bacca takes the next penalty. He goes down the middle and although Pickford goes right, he is still able to get a hand in the way and make the save!
GOAL!!! Colombia 3 - 3 England!
Trippier is next and he makes no mistake! He sticks it into the roof of the net!
OFF THE BAR! Colombia 3 - 2 England!
Uribe is next. He hits the underside of the bar! England are still in this!
SAVED!!! Colombia 3 - 2 England!
Henderson with the spot kick and Ospina guesses the right way and makes a save!
GOAL!!! Colombia 3 - 2 England!
Muriel sends Pickford the wrong way and rolls it in low!
GOAL!!! Colombia 2 - 2 England!
Rashford finds the bottom left corner!
GOAL!!! Colombia 2 - 1 England!
Cuadrado is next and he drills it into the top corner!
GOAL!!! Colombia 1 - 1 England!
Harry Kane takes England's first and he scores! He finds the bottom left corner!
GOAL!!! Colombia 1 - 0 England!
Colombia are first up. It's taken by Falcao and he scores! Pickford goes right as he goes down the middle!
Both teams are in their huddles. Getting their final instructions no doubt. Remember, the winner of this game will face Sweden in the quarter-finals.
England have the experience with penalty shootouts in World Cup Knockout games. Will this help them get through today?
FULL TIME! Colombia 1 - 1 England!
Well, we were talking about it and it has happened. We are down to penalties. Not what England we imagining at the 90 minute mark but here we are.
There is a minute of added time.
Cuadrado really nails Rose with a tackle and he is booked for the violation. England with a chance now. It's taken by Rose but Ospina punches it well away.
Colombia with a change. Arias is replaced by Zapata.
England with a chance by Vardy that's cleared for a corner. It's taken by Trippier and it's pin-point perfect. He finds an unmarked Dier but all Dier manages to do is head it wide of the target!
Final change for England as Walker comes off and is replaced by Rashford.
A great through ball from Henderson finds Danny Rose. Rose looks to put the ball into the far corner and JUST misses! So close!
Kyle Walker seems to be suffering from cramp but he looks like he's not prepared to go off just yet! England have been much better in this half so far. Can they create a few more chances?
End to end stuff! Vardy finds space in the box but his shot is blocked by Sanchez and Colombia break! It forces Pickford to come out of his box and deny Falcao!
Trippier and Stones with an error and Colombia have a throw-in. Luckily for England, they don't make much way forward!
Henderson with a little tap that richochets into Vardy's path. He looks to take on Ospina but the offside flag is up!
We are underway with the second half of extra time!
HALF TIME! Colombia 1 - 1 England!
So we at half time in extra time. Remember, if no one scores, we go to penalties. Wonder who that will suit?
Falcao rises up to a Mojica cross and heads it just wide of the target! England must be worried at the moment! Colombia look like scoring anytime now!
Colombia win a corner and it's taken by Cuadrado. Mina with another leap but his header is wide this time. England use this time to make a change. Young comes off and is replaced by Rose.
England are not looking the same confident team they were during the first 90 minutes. Colombia seem to be on the ascendancy at the moment.
Some confusion. Maguire with a throw in to Young. As Young plays it back to Maguire, there's another ball that's on the pitch. Maguire doesn't see the ball being played back to him and Falcao steals the ball. The ref stops the game and rightly so. The Col
Pickford called on once again. Mojica with a low drive from the byline but Pickford does well to make the save! Bacca was there but just couldn't stretch far enough.
That goal has energized the Colombians and their fans. They look hungry now. That desire was missing for most of the game.
Young goes down as Barrios half pulls on him. The ref doesn't do anything and play continues. He's already on a yellow, so he will need to be careful.
GOAL!!! Colombia 1 - 1 England! (Mina)
Colombia with a corner taken by Cuadrado. Mina jumps higher than everyone else and heads it into the ground and Trippier can't jump high enough to prevent the ball from going over the line!
FULL TIME! Colombia 1 - 1 England!
Well, we didn't see this coming but we are heading to extra time. Mina bringing his team back into this! We'll be back shortly with all the action!
We are underway with extra time!
There will be five minutes of added time. Enough time for a goal or two!
Both teams make a change. England bring on Vardy for Sterling and Colombia bring on Muriel for Quintero.
Falcao again with the ball. He and Bacca play a one-two before he has a go but it's straight at Pickford! Colombia turning it on at the moment.
Colombia create a chance as Mojica sends in a cross that finds Falcao but he ends up heading it wide!
England with a free-kick and Maguire manages to get his head to the ball but it's over the target! The chances are coming for England but they just can't seem to convert them.
England with a chance to double their lead! Kane with a brilliant pass to Lingard, who is in acres of space and has Sterling at the far post. Lingard somehow doesn't get good connection on the ball and ends up fouling Sanchez in the process.
Walker is dispossessed and Bacca runs at Stones. He then feeds Cuadrado, who has a sight of goal but the angle is awkward. He goes for it anyway and it's just over! A big let off for England!
Colombia with another chance. Carlos Sanchez comes off and is replaced by Uribe.
England now with a substitution. Dier comes on for Alli.
Ref Geiger with a big call to make once again. England build an attack with a great break through Young, who finds Lingard. Sanchez comes in to defend and Lingard goes down. The ref says play on as Lingard won the ball anyway. It was a good call.
Colombia realizing that time is running out and they are starting to put some pressure on England with some shots into the box. England are dealing with it well though.
Alli with a superb ball that finds Lingard on the left side of the box. Kane was waiting in the middle and just needed to tap it in but once again, Sanchez does brilliantly to put a stop to that attack!
This game can easily boil over. We have an England player being booked now. It's Lingard for leaving a foot on Sanchez.
Another booking for a Colombian player. This time it's Bacca for a foul on Stones.
Colombia are remonstrating with the referee as they felt Maguire dived in the area but he got nothing. Falcao on the other hand has been booked for dissent. In fairness, it did look like Maguire dived.
Trippier creates a chance! He does superbly with a cross that finds the head of Alli but he heads it over the target! That was a great chance!
We have the first substitution of the game. Lerma comes off and is replaced by Bacca.
This game is descending into a bit of chaos at the moment. England need to be careful. They need to be calm and not play into the Colombian hands. Colombia on the other hand would want to break the uniformity of England's play. It suits their style.
GOAL!!! Colombia 0 - 1 England! (Kane)
Once again, the England skipper makes no mistake. Ospina goes right and he goes straight down the middle!
The Colombians are furious and are even going as far as scuffing up the penalty area. Some of them are in the referee's face as well. Henderson has also been booked for flicking his head on Mina. Chaos reigning at the moment.
PENALTY TO ENGLAND! England earned a corner and it was taken by Trippier and headed towards the back post. Sanchez was all over Kane here and he goes down with Sanchez at his back. The ref points to the spot!
It's taken by Young and he finds the head of Maguire. The ball looks headed for the target but once again, Sanchez is in the way and he clears!
England with a free-kick about 35 yards away from the target. It was an Arias foul on Kane that got them the free-kick but also earned Arias a yellow card!
Sanchez needing to come to Colombia's defense once again! He dispossesses Alli on the edge of the box just as England were building towards something.
Dele Alli has not been taken off, so that injury scare from earlier could not have been too serious. The Colombians have had a change in strategy with Quintero playing a more central role.
Something interesting happened as the teams were making their way off the field at half-time. Sterling was nudged by a Colombian member of the coaching staff. The ref had to come and have a word. It was most bizarre and uncalled for.
We are underway with the second half!
HALF TIME! Colombia 0 - 0 England!
There's the halftime whistle and the teams head to the changerooms. England started really strong but Colombia have started to see a bit more of the ball. We'll be back shortly with the second half.
A great cross by Trippier but Barrios is there to clear. The ball lands perfectly for Lingard, who has a go from 15 yards out and the ball just clears the post! Dele Alli seems to be injured and is receiving some attention.
A great attempt from Quintero as he has a go from some distance! It's on target and seems to be dipping but the ball lands in Pickford's hands.
Sterling and Mina in a bit of a confrontation here. The referee tells them both to get on with it. There will be three minutes of added time.
Trippier finally gets to take the free-kick and he decides to go for goal. It's not a great effort as it's wide of the mark. Should have done better with that.
Barrios is very fortunate to have just been given a Yellow card for his actions. This will definitely be a talking point.
We have some nervous moments here! Henderson is on the ground and it looks like Barrios is the cause. VAR has been called for.
Lerma fouls Kane not too far from the box and England have a free-kick in a great position. Can they make this count and go into the break a goal ahead?
England are trying to break though with Sterling but Colombia have been very tight defensively. It's not going to be easy to get past the defense but that's what Lingard, Sterling and Kane are capable of.
Quintero gets onto the end of a Falcao pass but his shot leaves a lot to be desired as it is well wide of the target! The Colombians have been seeing a bit more of the ball but they are a bit too frantic when they have it. They'll need calmer heads.
The fans on both sides are making their presence felt. Really is an electric atmosphere here as both sets of fans are willing their teams on.
Some good defending by Sanchez! Kane had the ball and finds Sterling, who in turn finds Alli. The movement was well read by Sanchez as he comes out and clears the ball!
It's taken by Trippier and it's cleared by a certain Colombian defender...it's Mina once again!
A free-kick for England and once again, Young stands over it. He finds Maguire but once again, Mina is there to clear and concede a corner. I'm starting to notice a pattern developing.
Cuadrado decides to have a shot from quite some distance. Luckily for him, the ball is deflected into the path of Falcao but before he has a chance to shoot, Maguire is there to make sure he gets no further!
After 20 minutes, England have seen more of the ball and have had their chances. Colombia too have had a chance or 2 but both sets of defenders are doing reasonably well.
A great move by England as Lingard does well to slip in Trippier. Trippier then supplies a great cross towards the back post for a waiting Kane but he just couldn't get to the ball! That was a great chance!
Trippier does really well to stop Mojica as he comes rushing in. He was in a good position but good defending robs him of the chance of taking a shot!
Mina once again is there to block a Trippier shot and Colombia counter. Barrios makes an error and the ball lands perfectly for Sterling. He takes a shot from 20 yards or so out and it is well blocked by Sanchez!
England with another corner but this time they are penalized as Stones pushes a Colombian player marking him.
Mina once again again there to do his duty as he defends Trippier's free-kick and he concedes a corner once more. The corner is cleared and Colombia counter at pace. The move looked good but Quintero doesn't get much power on his shot!
The corner is taken by Young but that was an easy take for Ospina. Good start by the English.
It's taken by Young and it's an accurate ball headed straight for the target but Ospina manages to get it away! The ball finds its way to Trippier, who dishes up a header for Lingard but Colombia clear it and concede a corner in the process.
Good defending by Mina as he goes for a sliding tackle on the edge of the box, taking out Sterling. England have a free-kick in a dangerous position!
Some good play by Sterling as he wins a free-kick for his team in Colombia's half. Kane finds Trippier with a decent pass but Colombia win the ball back.
Alli feeling some nerves as he gives the ball away in England's defensive third but England manage to get the ball away and it's now in Colombia's half.
Colombia get us underway!
Anthems are done and there's an amazing atmosphere at the ground. We'll be kicking off shortly!
We have both teams emerging from the tunnels and are about to have the national anthems.
Subs: Alexander-Arnold, Butland, Cahil, Dier, Jones, Loftus-Creek, Pope, Rashford, Rose, Welbeck, Vardy.
England Playing XI: Pickford, Maguire, Stones, Walker, Henderson, Young, Trippier, Alli, Lingard, Kane, Sterling.
Subs: Aguilar, Bacca, Jose Cuadrado, Diaz, Izquierdo, Muriel, Murillo, Uribe, Vargas, Zapata.
Colombia Playing XI: Ospina, Mojica, Sanchez, Mina, Arias, Lerma, Sanchez, Barrios, Quintero, Falcao, Cuadrado.

Good evening and welcome to the one of the most anticipated games of the final 16 phase. It's also the last match of the phase. It's Colombia v England at the Otkrytie Arena.
