Police have detained a supporter in Moscow after a statue outside the stadium where England faced Colombia was vandalised.

The word "England" was inscribed in red across the chest of ex-Spartak Moscow player Fyodor Cherenkov in the vicinity of the Spartak Stadium on Tuesday evening.

Cherenkov won three Soviet titles during his time with Spartak, as well as one Russian title, making him a hero to the club's supporters.

England went on to beat Colombia 4-3 on penalties after a 1-1 draw to progress through to the World Cup quarter-finals.
