Yerry Mina equalised with a 93rd-minute header as the giant Colombian defender scored for the third game in a row.
Jordan Pickford became the first England goalkeeper to save a penalty in a shootout at a major tournament since David Seaman at the 1998 World Cup.
The South American side, without injured forward James Rodriguez, appeared on the edge of reaching their second consecutive World Cup quarter-final.
England won for just the second time in eight penalty shootouts and reached the quarter-finals for the first time since 2006.
With Spain already ejected, England face Sweden in Samara on Saturday, with Russia and Croatia potential semi-final opponents.
