England face Germany in the Round of 16 at Euro 2020 on Tuesday after finishing top of Group D. The Three Lions are aiming to secure a first major tournament knockout stage victory over Germany since 1966.
Raheem Sterling’s first-half strike against the Czech Republic a week ago was enough to see the Three Lions win Group D. Before coming up against the Czech Republic, England had already qualified for the knockout stage after picking up four points from their opening two games against Croatia and Scotland. However, after a disappointing display against the Scots at Wembley, it was important for them to regain some momentum with a good performance. Even though it wasn’t a free-flowing display, the introduction of Jack Grealish and Bukayo Saka to the starting line-up certainly added something different going forward.
Who do England play next at Euro 2020?
As a result of finishing top of Group E, England face Germany in the Round of 16. Although they only managed to pick up four points, Germany finished as runners-up in Group F. Joachim Low will be hoping his players can replicate the performance they produced in the six-goal thriller against Portugal against England. In their other games against France and Hungary, they were a long way off their best. Nevertheless, Germany’s history against England makes this one of the standout fixtures in the Round of 16.
