Jose Izquierdo's World Cup is over - but the dream and the drama lives on for England.

Albion's winger played no part in tonight's win on penalties for Gareth Southgate's side against Izquierdo's Colombia in the last 16 in Russia.

England's spot-kick agonies in previous tournaments were finally laid to rest as they won the shoot-out 4-3 at the Spartak Arena in Moscow.

Southgate's Three Lions picked themselves up after conceding an equaliser in injury time in normal time to grab a quarter-final place against Sweden on Saturday (3pm).

Izquierdo (below), meanwhile, is on his way home for a rest before linking up with his Albion team-mates at a future stage in their pre-season preparations.

Izquierdo was mysteriously unused on the bench by Jose Pekerman for the third match running, even though star man James Rodriguez was absent from the squad through injury.

Colombia's Argentinian coach made three substitutions in the second half and another permitted in extra-time without turning to the Seagulls' lively wide man and goalscoring threat.

Izquierdo started the South Americans' opening game of the tournament, when they lost to Japan after they were reduced to ten men early on.

He was relegated to the bench for the wins against Poland and Senegal which secured Colombia's passage to the knockout stages.

Yerra Mina headed Colombia level in the 93rd minute from a corner, the young Barcelona central defender's third of the tournament after Harry Kane's sixth for England with a second half penalty, awarded when Carlos Sanchez grappled the Spurs striker to the floor from a corner under the nose of American referee Mark Geiger.
