Gareth Southgate's side went into the shoot-out after a tense 1-1 draw with Jose Pekerman's team

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.
