RECAP: England BEAT Germany 2-0 with Raheem Sterling and Harry Kane on target at Wembley – either side of Thomas Muller missing a huge chance to equalise – to send Gareth Southgate’s side into Euro 2020 quarter-finals
It is done. The mission, accomplished. England have beaten Germany in a knock-out match at a tournament, for the first time since 1966. It is done. The mission, accomplished. England have won – actually won, not just progressed via penalties – a knock-out match at a European Championship tournament for the first time in the history.
England take on historic rivalsin a mouth-watering last-16 clash this evening, with the victor staring at a favourable route to the final ahead.
The Three Lions have been pragmatic but somewhat underwhelming en route to the knockout stages, claiming two wins and a draw from their three Group D encounters without conceding a goal.
They now renew their long-standing rivalry with Germany, who squeezed through Group F – or the ‘group of death’ – to set up the eagerly-anticipated fixture.
Southgate is set to switch from a back four to a back three as he reverts back to his World Cup style 3-4-3 formation, as he looks to better the likes of, Portugal and Holland, who have already bowed out in an enthralling start to the round of 16.
