MOSCOW – England has ended a drought in World Cup shootouts to beat Colombia 4-3 on penalties and advance to a quarterfinal match against Sweden.

Yerry Mina’s header in the third minute of stoppage time for Colombia made it 1-1 at the end of regulation, and extra time was scoreless.

Eric Dier scored the decisive kick to end a run off five successive tournament exits on penalties, including the 2006 World Cup — the last time England reached the last eight.

It is the furthest England has progressed in any tournament since the David Beckham era when a golden generation of players underperformed on the international stage, exiting the 2002 and 2006 World Cups in the last eight.
