Diego Maradona has branded England ’s win over Colombia “a monumental theft”, accusing them of diving and demanding an apology from Fifa for appointing Mark Geiger to referee the match.

Diego Maradona says Colombia were victims of a " monumental robbery " against England and accused referee Mark Geiger of favouring Gareth Southgate's side. England booked their place in the quarter-finals of the competition with a win on penalties on Tuesday night.

"Here's a gentleman who decides, a referee who, if you Google him, shouldn't be given a match of this magnitude... Geiger, an American, what a coincidence," Maradona added on his nightly World Cup show for Venezuela-based Telesur broadcaster.

TV images showed Maradona wildly celebrating Colombia's late equaliser that took Tuesday's Round of 16 match to 1-1 and extra time. But he was despondent when England won a penalty shootout, taking them into a quarter-final against Sweden.

The ever-controversial former World Cup winner also pointed the finger at Pierluigi Collina, head of FIFA's referee committee, for allowing Geiger's designation.
