John Stones described Colombia as "probably the dirtiest team" he has ever played against and praised England for showing "massive character" to resist the provocation and adversity they faced at Spartak Stadium and reach the World Cup quarterfinals.

Of course, Colombia's tactics in their match against Southgate's side left a lot to be desired because at times, they seemed more interested in arguing with the referee and fouling the English players than actually getting on with the game.

"It is true that I did not shine as I had wanted in England but that is part of the past", said the 32-year-old striker. I apologize to all the Colombian people, but they must know the players are not to blame.

In the respect of when we won a penalty - they were surrounding the referee, even pushing the referee.

England are aiming to announce themselves as serious 2018 FIFA World Cup contenders when they take on an attack-minded Colombia side in their last-16 clash at the Otkrytie Arena tonight.

Former England manager Sven-Goran Eriksson says Saturday's World Cup quarter-final against Sweden will be "their most hard game so far". They are on a plane going back home now and we are not. But Colombia, Sweden, Switzerland, Croatia and Russian Federation will be feeling exactly the same, and they will all fancy themselves against a nation which has a history of taking too much for granted.

The England defender said there were incidents that were not picked up that could have merited strong action from the referee.

He added: "I saw a monumental theft".

Police were already investigating death threats sent to defensive midfielder Carlos Sanchez after his red card in Colombia's opening game with Japan.

The Manchester City player said that England had done well to avoid being caught up in incidents.

James has been involved in 10 of Colombia's past 14 World Cup goals.

"That's a great thing for a team to have".

"We had a cruel blow on 90 minutes, which we had to show incredible resilience to come back from", said a relieved Southgate, whose own penalty miss cost England in the semifinals against Germany at Euro '96.

Colombia had six players booked across the 120 minutes, with Wilmar Barrios among those to be cautioned for a headbutt on Jordan Henderson.

Colombia captain Radamel Falcao also accused referee Mark Geiger of bias towards England, calling the American's performance "shameful".
