Romelu Lukaku, Ross Barkley, Mason Mount, Ben Chilwell, and Reece James took the penalties that guaranteed the blues their place in the last 16.

Timo Werner who was in the starting lineup did not take part in the penalty shootout and he has come out to state his reasons.

According to the German, the injury he picked up at the course of the match was the reason why he didn't take a penalty last night.

In a statement, Werner said: "I had some pain in my calf but with only three substitutes, I couldn't go off, but when you have fit players on the pitch, it's better they shoot than me.
