England were good value for their win, with Colombia doing very little to deserve progression into the next round. The South Americans were disappointing on the night, and resorted to gamesmanship on numerous occasions.

There were top performances though from a number of Three Lions stars, including Harry Maguire, Harry Kane and of course, Jordan Pickford. Also catching the eye again though, was Tottenham full-back Kieran Trippier.

The marauding 27-year-old has had a fine tournament so far, and was on his game again against Colombia, who struggled to deal with his pace down the right.
