John Stones: Colombia "dirtiest team" I have ever faced

England Iceland Euro 2016

I said before the tournament that if we can't come here just to get through the games and see what happens - there is no point in doing that.

Regarding the message, they said that: "This was unfair on the Colombian people, who are far more embarrassed by the way their cheating, fouling, play-acting, mean-spirited, national football team played last night".

Maradona also claimed Geiger should have penalised Kane in the build-up to England's second-half penalty, and criticised Pierluigi Collina, head of FIFA's referee committee, for allowing Geiger to officiate the match.

Federation Internationale de Football Association denied Amrabat's allegations, saying in a statement: "FIFA referees are under clear instructions with regard to their behavior and relationship with the teams at the 2018 Federation Internationale de Football Association World Cup Russia and it can be confirmed that Mr. Geiger has acted in an exemplary and professional manner as an appointed match official".

The ever-controversial former World Cup victor also pointed the finger at Pierluigi Collina, head of FIFA's referee committee, for allowing Geiger's designation.

More than 200,000 people have signed a petition demanding that England's turbulent World Cup last 16 clash with Colombia is replayed.

"[There was] a lot of off-the-ball stuff that I'm sure you have not heard about".

England looked on course for relatively serene progress to the quarter-finals for the first time since the 2006 World Cup before they conceded a goal in injury time.

"Twice the English threw themselves to the ground and he did not admonish them".

American killed in Bahamas boat explosion ID'd as Tennessee woman
A woman is dead and nine others were injured after a boat exploded off the Exuma coast in the Bahamas Saturday morning. 'The scary thing is Stefanie doesn't know that she's lost her legs, and that's what really upsets me, ' she said.

After 30 tense but goalless minutes of extra time, England sealed their place when Mateus Uribe and Carlos Bacca missed their efforts , saving Jordan Henderson's blushes after David Ospina saved his attempt.

Asked to expand on the other Colombian spoiling tactics, Stones said: "I'd rather not say, otherwise I reckon it could get me in a bit of trouble".

"It's a foul by Kane".

"If the referee had seen the headbutt it might have been a totally different game".

"It was Kane's fault".

England were the better side without looking too risky but were then gifted the lead when Carlos Sanchez hauled down England's captain and talisman Kane once too often.

Former England striker Gary Lineker laughed off Maradona's comments on Twitter, referencing the Argentinian's infamous "Hand of God" goal against England in the 1986 quarter-finals.

But he insists that, despite millions of England fans hiding behind their sofas at home, Gareth Southgate has given this team a mental strength which can carry them all the way.
