England won a tournament penalty shootout for the first time in their history after Eric Dier slotted away the winning spot-kick in a 4-3 win.
Gareth Southgate's side went into the shoot-out after a tense 1-1 draw with Jose Pekerman's team, and the weight of history was evident as players and coaches assembled prior to the shoot-out.
England have had many great players over the years. Bobby Charlton, Alan Shearer, Gary Lineker, David Beckham, Paul Scholes; the list goes on and on, but none of them ever did what this side has done.
None of them ever won a penalty shoot-out at the World Cup. Yerry Mina’s 93rd minute header cancelled out Harry Kane’s opener – which also came from the spot – to take the game to extra time as the nerves grew and the shootout loomed.
I had a bet with tony here, if england win the World Cup I’ll get tesco tattooed on my inner lip like the logo and if they don’t then he’ll get it done and now it’s official as we’re on Twitter pic.twitter.com/FUw8WpiMOY— joshuaelizaga (@joshuaelizaga) July 2, 2018
