He is the player that everyone is talking about - wherever you go at the moment, people from all around the world.

Huge crowds chanting "it's coming home, football's coming home" rushed to the middle of the road in Liverpool Street, stopping cars, buses and even emergency services from getting through.

He has only missed against Everton, in 2015-16, and Liverpool, in 2017-18, in normal time while he also fluffed his lines in the Foxes' Carabao Cup quarter-final shoot-out loss to Manchester City last December.

Russian police said they had arrested a fan over a vandalised statue outside the stadium where England played Colombia in Moscow.

"Being an England supporter, I was a bit nervous because we've never been any good at penalties", pub worker Garry Brookes told AFP as he charged out into the beer garden during the post-match chaos.

"But with Kane at the head of the side - he's the main man".

England scored its only regulation goal on a second-half penalty kick by Harry Kane who was clearly fouled on the preceding play. Liverpool's Jordan Henderson was the only player to miss following a wonderful effort from Colombian shot-stopper David Ospina.

Low is understood to have given a verbal commitment to see out the new contract he signed before the World Cup, which extended his stay in the role until 2022. There aren't many strikers like him in football right now.

"I will be straight there wanting to take the next one". We played so well in the 90 minutes.

England was always the more purposeful side but they lacked the key final ball and needed a gift to take the lead.

"He has gone to another level and elevated his game".

"If England win I'll try to be gracious, I'll have a lot of unhappy students who all seem very confident they can beat us".

"We knew we had extra-time and the penalty shoot-out".
