The event was such a success that the team will be heading back to the museum as the Three Lions take on Sweden in Saturday's quarter final.

Pegged back late by a Colombia equaliser, England were forced to settle the game from the spot, where they had lost in all three of their previous attempts at the World Cup and six of seven in major tournaments.

England players took to social media to celebrate reaching the quarter-finals after beating Colombia after penalty shootout.

Following England's dramatic win against Colombia on Tuesday night, OfficialCharts.com can reveal that David Baddiel, Frank Skinner and The Lightning Seeds' track is surging up the chart, now at Number 35 in today's Sales Flash (counting sales and streams from last Friday to midnight on Wednesday night) - up from Number 56 on Monday. "I don't care if I'm not the biggest keeper because it's about being there in the moment and making the save, and I was", he said in his post match interview.

"Actions speak louder than words", said Kelly, who also worked with the former Sunderland player at Everton.

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

"But I understand why Gareth did it, it's the first thought at the time that you've got to defend and hang onto what you've got, but I thought besides that England were very composed".

"You don't always get what you deserve in life but tonight I think we did".

Thanks to Pickford that curse is now broken and their best chance in a generation to end 52 years of hurt at the World Cup remains intact.

"Our fans that were here were brilliant but it was nearly an away game, so to deal with all of that was exceptional", he said.
