Thousands sign petition for England-Colombia replay

Over 170,000 people have signed a petition demanding England's World Cup last-16 match against Colombia is replayed.
The petition, which was started 2 days ago when Gareth Southgate's men won a penalty shootout, argues England were awarded their second-half penalty for "a non-existent foul" and that Colombian striker Carlos Bacca's extra-time goal should have been allowed to stand.
Bacca had scored after referee Mark Geiger had already halted proceedings, with England defender Harry Maguire distracted by a second ball that would have come on the pitch had the assistant not stopped it.
The petition calls for FIFA "to review these two actions, in order to set a precedent for fair play".
