Maradona had been photographed before the game wearing a yellow Colombia jersey. "I think there is exaggeration or theatre by the players", he told Russia Today.

Maradona further questioned Federation Internationale de Football Association referee Chief Pierluigi Collina's decision to appoint Geiger as the match referee.

They had earlier taken the lead from the penalty spot after Harry Kane was fouled by Carlos Sanchez and, although Colombia equalised late on through Yerry Mina, it was England who held their nerve on spot-kicks to progress to the last eight.

"I'm just sorry for the whole Colombian people", Maradona said.

"Colombian captain Radamel Falcao also criticised American official Geiger, calling his performance a "disgrace".

England have a traditionally poor record with penalties - they were the team's undoing at the 1990, 1998 and 2006 World Cup, as well as the 1996, 2004 and 2012 European Championship.

The knockout stage match between England and Colombia in Moscow was played in a mostly cloudy weather amid temperatures of about 20 degrees Centigrade, however, the Spartak Arena enjoyed an nearly full house attendance with a registered number of 44,190 spectators attending the game.

Fans, Americans, and hot dog-lovers alike celebrated Chestnut's win and new world record. "I just kept going", he said . The victory handed him the coveted Mustard Belt for the eleventh time in his "hot dog-eating" career.

Maradona, who mostly attended World Cup games in Russian Federation as a VIP guest of FIFA, was photographed before the game wearing a Colombia shirt.

"Every team has lots of diving, lots of pretending, lots of putting pressure on the referee... the game loses quality... and for me that was the negative point".

"She did see some of (the match)", said a Downing Street spokesman.

But even though Mourinho was largely impressed with what he saw from England in Moscow, he was disappointed to see Harry Maguire dive inside the Colombian penalty area.

"It was Kane's fault". England ended up bringing their own frustrating tactics to the game, but never stooped their opponents' levels.

"It is the man who decides who the referee is who is to blame", he said of Pierluigi Collina, the chairman of FIFA's referees committee. The rules allow for VAR assistance, yes or no?

When England started their FIFA World Cup 2018 journey, they showed much promise with their attacking and cohesive displays on the field but as the pressure has started to mount on the Three Lions, they have slowly become individual and ineffective units resulting in an absolute crisis. A man like that [Geiger] should not be put in charge of a game of that magnitude. "It is not possible, this has to be denounced", he added.
