"I want to denounce in front of Federation Internationale de Football Association and with the support of all my Colombian compatriots, the match of the round of 16 between Colombia and England", reads a translation of the petition, which was started by Colombian law student Juan Diego García Muñoz.

But now Maradona is accusing the England side of unfair play, saying that Harry Kane actually fouled Colombian defender Carlos Sanchez in the build-up to England's penalty.

Had results in qualifying, the playoffs and the group stage gone another way, it might be any one of that illustrious trio preparing to face Colombia or England in the last eight on Saturday.

"He's risky on set-pieces and in the box he is incredible".

Didier Deschamps' France finally set alight in the last 16, as they produced a brilliant attacking display in their 4-3 defeat of Argentina, with Kylian Mbappe standing out as he netted a double.

"What if a player falls because he fakes a fall, because he's being pushed by an opponent, or they're trying to get the referee to book another player?"

Maradona had said England's win was a "monumental robbery" and that Geiger "shouldn't be given a match of this magnitude". The are probably the dirtiest team I've ever come up against, in respect of when we won the penalty, surrounding the referee, pushing the referee, the headbutt that you've all seen, scuffing the penalty spot. These matches are very competitive. The All England Club does not plan to show the soccer match on its grounds, even if England is playing in the final.

"These interruptions are bad, of course they are".

"What other teams and countries think about that, you'll have to ask them". Yes, Romelu Lukaku remains the biggest attacking threat for Roberto Martinez, but with so many attacking threats it is almost impossible for Brazil to hone in on just one Belgian player. We stuck to our game plan and never got into the brawl that they wanted.

With that said, Pro Soccer Talk made a decision to take a look at eight statistics that matter heading into Friday and Saturday's matches, and how they affect the nations involved. But there we go.

"We now move forward to a game that will really challenge us in a completely different way, but tonight is a special moment".
