Mateus Uribe is the greatest hero the glorious nation of England has ever had.
Following a gruelling and tense 120 minutes in Moscow, England and Colombia were tied in their World Cup last 16 tie with the score a stalemate at 1-1. Following glorious penalties from Sir Harry Kane and Marcus Rashford, 2 random Colombia players also converted penalties. It fell to Jordan Henderson to break the nation’s hearts with a typically boring and predictable penalty.
At 3-2 down England were in search of a hero. When up stepped Colombia’s Mateus Uribe. Much credit should be given to England’s Jordan Pickford who danced around in the goal, doing all he could to prevent England from another predictably disappointing World Cup campaign. But it took tremendous courage from our spy in the camp England’s very own Mateus Uribe to smash his penalty against the crossbar and allow the most glorious comeback of all time.
As history will tell despite another random Colombian man scoring a penalty, Keiran Trippier and Eric Dier successfully converted penalties to send England though to the quarter finals of the 2018 World Cup in Russia.
People were quick to forget the courage of Mateus Uribe. This petition seeks to give Mateus the credit he deserves. Recognising his key contribution to the first penalty shootout England have ever won in a World Cup.
