Ian Wright lost his mind celebrating England's winning penalty against Colombia

He enjoyed that one.

After over 90 minutes of domination and a quarter-final looking all but sealed, Colombia bagged an equalizer. It all seemed so much like the England of old. It would be 1998 all over again. 2006. 2018. They were going to throw it away.

England had never won a World Cup penalty shootout, after all. Never in their entire history. And three penalties in there was Jordan Henderson - saved - putting Colombia just one away from match point. But then something happened. At long last, it wasn't England set to fall apart. First, Uribe hit the woodwork, then Kieran Trippier stepped up and put it away. 3-3, four taken.

Then there he was, Pickford, looking confident as Bacca places it on the spot. The Colombian runs up and the Englishman saved.

Eric Dier, subbed on to consolidate what they thought would be Kane's winner, stepped-up. Ian Wright couldn't watch, but his reaction afterwards said it all.
