12.55am: England win on penalties
England have won a World Cup penalty shoot-out. Yes, really.
Eric Dier converts the winning penalty as England win 4-3 in the shoot-out to put them through to the quarter-finals and a match with Sweden on Saturday.
Jordan Henderson had missed England's third penalty to put Colombia 3-2 ahead after three kicks each, but Mateus Uribe hit the bar and Carlos Bacca had his effort saved by Jordan Pickford.
It is the first time in four attempts that England have won a shoot-out at a World Cup.
12am: Mina goal sends Colombia and England to extra time
England thought they had won it. Harry Kane's penalty, his sixth goal of the tournament, had given England the advantage
But, in the third minute of stoppage time Yerry Mina heads home the equaliser from a corner. Kieran Trippier almost kept it out on the line but the ball rebounded in off the bar.
Extra time now. Colombia will be lifted by their escape. England had the game won once, now they have to do it again.
10.55pm: Goalless between Colombia and England
No goals in the first half in Moscow. England started well but Colombia improved as the half wore on.
England are aggrieved that Colombia are not down to 10 men as Wilmar Barrios pushed his head into Jordan Henderson's chest, then chin, at a free-kick as a wall was being lined up. Barrios only got a yellow card with Mark Geiger not using VAR to look at a replay, which was surprising.
A tense second half ahead.
Remember the winner faces Sweden in the quarter-finals.
10.20pm: Colombia v England underway
So far so tense in Moscow. We are 20 minutes into the final second round match and it is goalless as Colombia and England duke it out to see who plays Sweden on Saturday in Samara in the quarter-finals.
England have had better of early exchanges but have had no reward for it.
7.52pm: Full time - Sweden 1-0 Switzerland
Emil Forsberg's deflected effort on 66 minutes was enough to send Sweden through to a quarter-final meeting with the winner of tonight's late game between Colombia and England.
Forsberg did well to carve the opening up for himself, cutting back on to his right foot.
His shot looked as if Yann Sommer would easily gobble it up before Manuel Akanji stuck out a right foot that deflected the ball into the top corner.
Michael Lang was sent off for Switzerland late on for bringing down Sweden substitute Martin Olsson when through on goal.
It is the furthest Sweden have gone in a World Cup since finishing third in USA '94.
6.55pm: Half time - Sweden 0-0 Switzerland
Marcus Berg has come closest to opening the scoring, drawing a full-length save from Yann Sommer in the Switzerland goal.
The Al Ain striker also wasted an earlier chance when he failed to test the Swiss goalkeeper when through on goal.
Albin Ekdal blazed a glorious opportunity over the bar from six yards out, but the teams head in for the half-time team talk on level terms.
4.55pm: Sweden v Switzerland teams
The teams are in for today's first last-16 clash between Sweden and Switzerland. Kick-off is 6pm UAE time.
4.05pm: The World Cup worst XI
The 2018 World Cup has been a memorable tournament but for some players they would rather forget it in a hurry. Paul Radley has put together his worst XI below:
Goalkeeper – David de Gea (Spain) With Manuel Neuer still feeling his way back to form following serious injury, De Gea came into this tournament more or less universally acclaimed as the best goalkeeper in the game. Then he waved through a shot from Ronaldo early in the classic first game against Portugal, and it set the tone for a nervy campaign. Lucy Nicholson / Reuters
Right back – Igor Smolnikov (Russia) This World Cup has been a triumph for a variety of reasons. Very near the top of that list has been the form of the host nation, who have defied gloomy expectations and made it to the quarter-final. Not that all of their players have thrived. Smolnikov was sent off in an abject display in the group-phase loss to Uruguay. Dylan Martinez / Reuters
Left back – Raphael Guerreiro (Portugal) The France-born left-back was owned by Nordin Amrabat, the Morocco winger, in the group phase. The fact he retained his place after that horror show spoke much of the limited resources available to Portugal. When they needed him to raid in the last 16 against Uruguay, he shrunk.

Centre back – Federico Fazio (Argentina) This selection is possibly more a comment on Jorge Sampaoli’s confused coaching than the Roma centre back himself. France’s Kylian Mbappe dominates Marcos Rojo with his searing pace, and the solution is to replace Rojo at half-time with the even-more statuesque Fazio? In what actual world? Kevin C. Cox / Getty Images
Centre back – Jerome Boateng (Germany) Aged a mere 29, and a World Cup-winner just four years ago, the Bayern Munich centre back is facing calls to retire after his woe in Russia. Sent off in the outgoing champions’ only win, against Sweden – and his team appeared to cope better when they were down to 10 men anyway. Michael Dalder / Reuters
Midfield – Sami Khedira (Germany) “Inexplicable” was the word the 77-cap, multi-trophy winning midfielder used to describe his performances in Russia. He had had a good season, “and then these two games happen to me,” he was quoted as saying by Bild. “I have not experienced that during my entire football career and therefore I have to question myself, why this could be so?” Alexander Hassenstein / Getty Images
Midfield – Javier Mascherano (Argentina) Sloped off into retirement in tears after a tournament that bloodied both his features and his reputation. Way off the pace, maybe because he was distracted by trying to manage the team at the same time as playing. Hardly the fitting end to a fine international career. Carlos Garcia Rawlins / Reuters
Midfield - Grzegorz Krychowiak (Poland) Poland arrived in Russia ranked eighth in Fifa’s world standings, and yet were gone as soon as it was possible to be. The most memorable failing of their insipid campaign was when Krychowiak laid on a decisive goal for Senegal’s Mbaye Niang with an errant back pass. Poland did not recover. Peter Powell / EPA
Right wing – Mesut Ozil (Germany) Sorry to be an uneducated oaf about this. Maybe he really did create millions of chances with a stealth that goes over the head of all those without the requisite football intellect to appreciate his merits. But was the Arsenal schemer not, in fact, just a little bit useless? Michael Dalder / Reuters
Left wing – Manuel Neuer (Germany) Joachim Low, the Germany manager, has said in the past that Neuer could slot into midfield if he ever fancied it, such is his skill with his feet and his intelligence. Erm, the evidence of his walkabout on the left wing against South Korea suggests a revision of that idea is required. Don’t quit the day job, Keeps. Diego Azubel / EPA
Centre forward – Michy Batshuayi (Belgium) OK, so he might yet score the winner in the final and be remembered forever as a Belgian hero. It would take at least that for him to be defined by anything other than hitting himself in the face with the ball after booting it against a post in celebration of a goal. “I don't know if he did it for extra followers or something,” teammate Dries Mertens said later.

12.40pm: Neymar: The World Cup's most theatrical player?
Neymar is one of the finest footballers in the world, and his talents are shining bright at the World Cup as Brazil booked their place in the quarter-finals.
But it has been his histrionics that have drawn as much attention as his abilities. With that in mind, we have put together a photo gallery focusing only on Neymar's theatrics.

10.45am: Hope, goals and tears
Mohamed Salah has ascended to world-class status over the past year following his exploits for Premier League club Liverpool, while his place as a hero for Egyptian football fans was further solidified after guiding his nation to their first World Cup in 28 years.
Salah's time in Russia did not go to plan after his injury in the Uefa Champions League final meant his impact was limited.
Ian Oxborrow has put together the complete timeline of the highs and lows of Salah's past few months, complete with photo galleries, videos and exclusive interviews with the "Egyptian King" himself.
