"We'll know more over the next 36 hours", he said. I apologize to the Colombian people, but the players are not to blame as we don't choose the referees.
England were the better side without looking too unsafe but were then gifted the lead when Carlos Sanchez hauled down England's captain and talisman Kane once too often.
England had looked set to be going through with few dramas when tournament leading scorer Harry Kane smashed in a 57th-minute penalty, his sixth goal at the finals, only for Yerry Mina to head an equalizer in the third minute of stoppage time.
This being said, when Piers Morgan thinks that something is great, well, you can make up your own mind. "You know you are standing there and if we don't get through from a game we played so well in, you know you will continue the history and mindset for teams to come".
"When something goes wrong in your life it doesn't finish you and you should become braver, knowing that you've got to go for things in life and don't regret (that) you didn't try to be as good as you might be", said Southgate. "I'm really sad for Uribe".

After four minutes of mayhem as Colombia protested, Kane kept his cool and smashed in his third spot kick of Russian Federation 2018.
England's calmness under pressure was again personified by captain Harry Kane.
Colombia had 23 fouls and six yellow cards while England had 13 fouls and two yellows.
Managers Jose Pekerman and Southgate move quickly to console the Colombian side after the dramatic finale.
In his program "De la mano del 10", a show where he analyzes World Cup matches on TeleSUR, Maradona decried Colombia's defeat and argued it was not the players' fault. For some I think it's just cramp and some need more assessment. "People should also look at England's players".
