This is how Hitchin's Victoria pub celebrated England-Colombia penalty shootout win

Jordan Henderson says he will remain "forever in debt" to England goalkeeper Jordan Pickford for his heroics in the last 16 penalty shootout win over Colombia.

Pickford, who is 6 feet 1 inch (185 centimetres) tall, had been criticised for failing to save Adnan Januzaj's victor when Belgium beat England 1-0 last Thursday top Group G.

Pickford then saved from Carlos Bacca to secure a 4-3 win and send the Three Lions into a quarter-final clash with Sweden. I got criticised about using the top hand but I don't think I'll be getting criticised about it now.

"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".

Girlfriend Megan is out in Russian Federation to support Pickford, and last night posted two pictures of herself on Instagram, one before and one after the penalty shootout.

Jordan, Russia to Hold Talks as Syria Fighting Displaces 270,000
Eight towns fell to regime control on Saturday and another five on Sunday, including the key town of Bosra al-Sham. But on July 2, the civilian part of the opposition's delegation withdraws from the talks .

"I've never really been in a situation like that before but felt I had to score after missing the header at the end, so I'm just thankful I scored", said Dier on ITV after the game.

He deserves all the credit because he's the one who's helped me prepare for penalties.

Note that England won the penalty shoot-out in its history at the world Championships. He played 46 games in all competitions last season and has now established himself as England's number one.

John Welsh, Greg Cunningham, Jordan Hugill and fellow goalkeeper Mathew Hudson all also congratulated the former 24-year-old.

The Tottenham man struggled to make an impact during the group stages but now goes down as the first Englishman to convert a winning penalty - the solitary previous success having been settled by a David Seaman save against Spain in 1996. On my social media profiles I read a lot of positive comments about Southgate and the work he's doing with all the younger players and the tactics and mental preparation he is developing. "Ideally, we don't want to be going to a penalty shootout but we are delighted for the fans and the whole country".
