  • England Iceland Euro 2016

The 57-year-old former Napoli star was of the opinion that Colombia were robbed by the center referee and however described the game as monumental theft.

England finally overcame almost 30 years of penalty pain when they beat Colombia 4-3 in a shootout on Tuesday after drawing their World Cup last-16 clash 1-1 following extra time after the South Americans had equalised in the 93rd minute.

But the outspoken Argentinian claims that the United States referee Mark Geiger was biased towards England and said skipper Harry Kane dived for a penalty which earned his side a 1-0 lead in the match.

And Mourinho was critical of both players, "People are focusing on Neymar, but if it was only Neymar, I'd be happy, but it's not only Neymar", he told Russia Today.

Netflix may add an even more expensive 'Ultra' streaming tier
Nearly 6.4m new worldwide subscribers were added in the final quarter of a year ago , along with more than 1.9m users from the US. Aside from HDR support that would of course require compatible hardware, there are no other new features in the Ultra plan.

John Stones says Colombia were the "dirtiest team" he has ever faced and is glad England's new-found streetwise streak helped knock the South Americans out of the World Cup.

Colombia ultimately lost 4-3 on penalties in a match which saw them whistled for 23 of the game's 36 fouls and given six of the eight yellow cards, with Maradona echoing Colombia captain Radamel Falcao in accusing Geiger of favouring Gareth Southgate's side.

"With all due respect, Pierluigi Collina, as the man who designates the referees, he is very bad".

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

Juventus make bid for Real Madrid star Ronaldo
The Portugal superstar spoke about the club in the past tense after that game when he said: "We will talk in the future". Any transfer would still require Ronaldo to leave and agree personal terms on a new contract.

Federation Internationale de Football Association responded and described the 57-year-old's comments as "entirely inappropriate and completely unfounded". It has to be transparent.

"They were pushing the referee, scuffing the (penalty) spot and there was off-the-ball stuff you have not even heard about", he added. The Colombian players asked for VAR and he did not give it to them.

"Sometimes they can throw you these teams, they can go kind of under the radar, but there is no question they are a good team".

He later celebrated with his wife and son in Moscow and posed for photos with fans as England advanced to a quarter-final against Sweden on Saturday (Sunday NZ time).

Character Assassins Come for Ocasio-Cortez
The DNC chief added that he has "great respect" for Ocasio-Cortez's primary opponent, Rep. Joe Crowley, whom Perez called a "good Democrat " and a "class act".

In extra-time, the referee halted play following an England throw-in as the intended recipient Harry Maguire was distracted by another ball that would have entered the pitch had the assistant not prevented it from doing so. But we knew their game plan and what they were trying to do.
