Colombia head coach Jose Pekerman accused England’s players of constantly falling inside their opponent’s penalty area, in order to try and win a spot kick.
Colombia lost to England 4-3 in penalty shootout after the teams were level at 1-1 following the end of extra time. Harry Kane scored England’s goal in normal time from the penalty spot.
"People keep falling in the box all the time" Pekerman said.
"Sometimes people find themselves in situations when they need to choose, to continue the game or to fall.
"When there is a violation, it’s one thing, but there are too many falls like that."
England have advanced to the last eight, where they will face Sweden on Sunday (12am AEST) in Samara.
