Quotes: England-Colombia

Mark Sampson, England coach We’re very happy to have won and to have qualified for the next round. We’ve shown that we’re a versatile team, applying various systems and giving lots of different squad members some playing time. My players have demonstrated that they’re mentally very strong and ready for bigger challenges. Our set-pieces have been very good, and that’s an important asset in really tight games.

Fabian Taborda, Colombia coach We didn’t play well in the first half. Our attitude just wasn’t right. We came up against a well-organised England side, and we found it very hard to play our usual passing game. It was only in the last few minutes of the first half that we began to look like ourselves again. We made some changes that gave us a different dynamic and made us look more dangerous, and in the second half we dominated England, who simply tried to defend and counter-attack.
