David Ospina has admitted that he is "sad" to be heading home from the World Cup, but is content that Colombia "left every ounce of sweat" on the field.
Los Cafeteros snatched a late 1-1 draw against England in Tuesday evening's last-16 tie, only to lose 4-3 on penalties after a goalless period of extra time.
Arsenal goalkeeper Ospina saved Jordan Henderson's spot kick to give Colombia the advantage, yet it was England who came out on top as Mateus Uribe and Carlos Bacca failed to convert in quick succession.
Speaking to Mundo Deportivo after the game, Ospina said: "We're going [home] sad, but now is the time to raise your head. [The team] left every ounce of sweat.
"We are running out of the adventure at the World Cup, but we are leaving with a clear conscience that we gave it everything on the field. As it is said, it is a lottery, there was fortune [saving Henderson's penalty] at first, but then two failed and that's how it is."
Colombia's best finish at a World Cup finals came four years ago when reaching the last eight.
