England fan apologizes for defacing monument outside World Cup stadium

England fan apologizes for defacing monument outside World Cup stadium

I did all my research.

Tottenham Hotspur defender Kieran Trippier continued his dazzling form in the World Cup on Tuesday night, as England secured a dramatic qualification to the quarter-finals.

"SPOT-PICK HERO" - More penalty puns from the Star on the back page with Pickford's save the focus, after England "finally ended their penalty hoodoo".

The popular tabloid, known for its provocative headlines, ran with a front-page picture of England captain Harry Kane and the words "Go Kane!", a pun on Colombia's reputation as a drug exporter.

At 6ft 5in, Courtois is one of the most imposing goalkeepers on the global scene and is the joint-third tallest out of 736 players competing at the World Cup this summer. In France, Kane played in every match but didn't score a goal and is mainly remembered for his inability to take a corner.

When Carlos Bacca stepped up to take Colombia's fifth and final penalty, the England goalkeeper knew he was likely to shoot to the left.

The Metro also go with "NEVER IN DOUBT" as England's players, led by Kane, celebrate their moment of victory.

"It gives us belief to go into the Sweden game and we will get straight back to business tomorrow".

Fans were quick to comment below Megan's post to congratulate them both.

Trent Alexander-Arnold was an unused substitute for England, who will now face Sweden in the quarter-finals at 3pm BST on Saturday July 7 in Samara.

"Where we are slightly in danger of tripping ourselves up is looking too far ahead, and thinking they are going to be a pushover", added Daily Mirror chief football writer John Cross. You don't always get what you deserve in life but I think we did against Colombia.

"I thought we played really well in the first half and for their goal, it was a mistake by myself", Trippier said.

"To get knocked down like we did, it's hard to come back from that, but we were ready, we stayed calm, stuck to our plan and never panicked".
