Despite having many chances to equalize, Switzerland was unable to finish any of their chances, which included a goal line clearance from none other than Emil Forsberg. With this win, Sweden has moved into the last eight teams in the tournament.
Another European team is into the quarterfinals — the Three Lions defeated Colombia in a thriller that could only be decided with penalty kicks. Harry Kane scored a second half penalty kick to put England ahead. Their lead looked good enough to win, until Colombian center back Yerry Mina headed in a stoppage time equalizer to send the game to extra time. Despite England having a few chances to grab a winner the game moved into a penalty shootout. English fans everywhere were praying that they would finally be on the winning side of a shootout in the World Cup, and alas they were. After a beautiful save from Jordan Pickford, Tottenham Midfielder Eric Dier won it for England on their fifth penalty.
