Wilmar Barrios headbutt Jordan Henderson

Pickford was named the man of the match in Saturday's World Cup quarter-final as his side defeated Sweden 2-0 to reach the semi-finals, with Pickford keeping a clean sheet.

Pickford defended his ability after letting in an Adnan Januzaj victor when the two nations met in their final Group G clash last week.

Cape Town - England made history on Tuesday night by winning their first ever penalty shootout at a World Cup, progressing to the quarter-finals of Russian Federation 2018 in the process.

"I don't care if I'm not the biggest keeper, I've got that power and agility and I'm very good at penalties".

Substitute Dier was relieved to see his penalty squirm past David Ospina, after missing a great chance to seal a last-eight spot in extra time.

"Yeah, I always join in the possessions and stuff and Kevin Ball (Pickford's former coach and ex-English footballer) always said I can play upfield if I wanted to".

"And the next round Sweden, all respect to Sweden it's going to be a great game but I think our boys will step up".

Pickford saved Carlos Bacca's effort to help his nation claim their first ever penalty shoot out win in a World Cup tournament.

The Chelsea keeper's comments provoked a reaction from Pickford after the England No.1 delivered a starring role in the Three Lions' penalty shootout victory over Colombia in the last 16.

"It is all about the set position and I got a hand to it".

"It was a tough game, we knew it would be, it was a little bit different to what we are used to but I thought we coped with it well, handled the game well and controlled it well apart from the late goal", he said.

THIS year's World Cup in Russian Federation is being hailed as one of the best ever - and football-mad Clinton FC goalkeeper Dan White wouldn't disagree.

'It'll be the most hard game [England] will have played so far'. "We are enjoying it and we've got keep doing what we are doing and make the country proud". But we just knew how to reset - "bang, we're going again".
