England sealed their passage into the Blind Football World Cup quarter-finals with an emphatic 7-1 win over Costa Rica on Tuesday in Madrid.

Robin Williams and Brandon Coleman both notched doubles for England in the comfortable victory that sets up a quarter-final clash with Argentina.

After the 3-1 defeat to Brazil, England finish as runners-up in Group D while Argentina topped Group A and are unbeaten in the tournament so far.

Daniel English fires home a penalty for England

Jon Pugh’s side, who opened their tournament with a 4-0 win over Mali, needed a fast start to put their Brazil defeat behind them.

And it was Roy Turnham who provided it, showing admirable determination to muscle his way through and fire low into the bottom corner in the seventh minute.

Daniel English nearly doubled the lead soon after before Williams won a penalty that English dispatched to double the lead.

Williams then grabbed a double of his own before the break, the first a fine effort after cutting in from the left and the second a close-range reaction strike, and England were home and hosed leading 4-0 at the interval.

But Costa Rica put up a fight after the break and pulled one back thanks to a penalty from Esteban Chaves.

However, the fight back ended there as Coleman’s quickfire double made sure of the victory and Keryn Seal added a magnificent seventh before the full-time whistle.
