Speaking to ITV's Gabriel Clarke, the Liverpool midfielder said: "I apologise to back home, to anybody who skipped a heartbeat!"
The South Americans had been getting away with blatant holding and wrestling at each of England's many corners and the referee's patience finally snapped when Carlos Sanchez hauled down tournament leading scorer Kane once too often.
The win came after a tense, scrappy match that saw Colombia rack up six yellow cards and more than 20 fouls against England - with tensions threatening to boil over at times.
Harry Kane is England's answer to Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo, says Jamie Redknapp, with the Tottenham striker one of the top five players in world football.

"The house will be hard on Tuesday because obviously one of us will be sad, I just hope Dan doesn't gloat too much if England win".
"I actually predicted we would get knocked out to Colombia in the last 16 so I was already anxious".
Kane further said, "It gives us huge belief".
