According to a report from the Mirror, Liverpool are interested in signing Barcelona centre-back Yerry Mina this summer, but would the Colombian have impressed Jürgen Klopp and co last night?

England dumped the South Americans out of the World Cup, emerging victorious from a penalty shoot-out, but the game will be remembered more for José Pékerman's side's dirty tactics.

Every Love Island contestant if they were an England player - World Cup!

Mina was a stand-out performer for Colombia at the back, and scored his side's injury time equaliser against England.
