England recorded a famous victory over Germany at Wembley to reach the quarter-finals of Euro 2020

In a cagey, tight affair, Raheem Sterling and Harry Kane stepped up in the second half to make the difference and send England through.

Sportsmail’s SAMI MOKBEL was at Wembley to run the rule over both side’s performances.

ENGLAND (3-4-3)

Jordan Pickford – Big saves to deny Werner and Havertz. The concerns over England’s No 1 heading into he tournament have been unfounded. 8

Kyle Walker – His recovery pace proved a major asset in an unfamiliar centre back role. Showed bags of experience and composure. 7

John Stones – Another colossal performance from the Manchester City defender. Has grown in stature and is having an excellent tournament. 8.5

John Stones was colossal at the back and won numerous aerial duels on Tuesday evening

Harry Maguire – Looked to be feeling the pace at the end – but that’s understandable after such a long lay-off. A hero’s performance. Booked. 8

Kieran Trippier – Southgate calls him his warrior. Absolutely accurate. Gave every part of his being down England’s right. 8

Kalvin Phillips – Grew into the game after a nervous start. His energy in central midfield was a crucial part of England’s triumph. 7

Declan Rice – Had to tread a disciplinary tightrope after picking up an early booking but manoeuvred his was way through the game superbly. Booked. 7.5

Luke Shaw – Brilliant ball to set up Sterling’s opener – and played a key role in Kane’s second. A coming of age performance. 8

Raheem Sterling – Appeared the most likely to breach Germany’s rearguard and he did just that. Golden Boot anyone? 9

Raheem Sterling keeps proving people wrong and is now in with a chance of the Golden boot

Harry Kane – Still cut an isolated figure in the lone striker’s role… but who cares. Is peaking just at the right time – just like he promised us. 7.5

Bukayo Saka – Utterly unfazed on the biggest night of his young career. Carried the fight to Germany before being substituted. 7

Subs: Grealish 7.5 (Saka 69); Henderson (Rice 88)

Subs not used: Ramsdale, Johnstone, Rashford, Mings, Coady, Sancho, Mount, Foden, James, Bellingham.

Gareth Southgate – Perhaps the detractors will get off his back now? The England manager got it spot on… again. 8

GERMANY (3-4-2-1)

Manuel Neuer – Made a fairly routine save to deny Sterling in the first half but had no answer to Sterling and Kane’s finishes. 6.5

Matthias Ginter – Played a key role in harnessing Kane’s threat in the first half but found it harder to contain Sterling’s directness. 6.5

Mats Hummels – Produced a vintage display in the first half but simply had no answer to ruthless England in the second. 7

Antonio Rudiger – A typically all-action display from Germany’s masked crusader – but was given a rough time by the impressive Saka. 6.5

Joshua Kimmich – Boundless energy down the right flank but his distribution left much to be desired at times. 6.5

Joshua Kimmich was highlighted as a danger but rarely threatened down the right flank

Leon Goretzka – A class act. Power, guile and ability all rolled into one. The stand out footballer in Germany’s team. 7

Toni Kroos – Has been there, seen it and done it. Moved the ball in midfield with trademark efficiency and finesse. 7

Robin Gosens – Trippier and Saka worked well in to nullify his undoubted threat. England were clearly fearful of the Atalanta man. Booked. 6

Kai Havertz – A couple of dangerous moments had England fearing the worst but drifted in and out of the game too much. 6.5

Thomas Muller – His miss to level will haunt him. The elder statesman of Germany’s attack struggled to lay a glove on England. 6

Thomas Muller will struggle to sleep tonight after missing a golden chance to equalise

Timo Werner – A familiar story for the Chelsea striker after squandering two good opportunities for his team. 5.5

Subs: Gnabry 6 (Werner 69); Can (Ginter 88); Sane (Gosens 88); Musiala (Muller 90)

Subs not used: Leno, Trapp, Halstenberg, Voland,, Sule, Neuhaus, Sane, Gundogan, Koch.

Joachim Low: His last game as Germany manager. What a way for this legendary figure to bow out. A night to forget. 6

Referee: Danny Makkelie: Kept a lid on the game that never really treated to spill over. 6.5
