England will play Ukraine in the Euro 2020 quarter-finals after a dramatic 2-0 win against Germany, but what’s their route to the final?
Are England in the quarter-finals of Euro 2020, and what’s their route to the final?
Raheem Sterling and Harry Kane scored two late goals for The Three Lions in a 2-0 win against Germany at Wembley on Tuesday to seal their place in the quarter-finals of Euro 2020. As a result, England ended their 55-year wait for a knockout tie win against Germany. Not only was it a huge result for England, but it was arguably their best performance of the tournament so far. They are only the second side in the history of the European Championship not to concede in any of their first four games. Indeed, the last time the Three Lions did so at any major tournament was at the 1966 World Cup.
Who do England play in the quarter-finals at Euro 2020?
And their reward for getting past Germany is a meeting with Ukraine in the quarter-finals. Artem Dovbyk scored in added time in extra-time as Andriy Shevchenko’s side beat 10-man Sweden at Hampden Park on Tuesday. They will now come up against England on Saturday, July 3, with the game getting underway at 8pm (UK).

Where are the quarter-finals being played?
England have played all of their games so far at Euro 2020 at Wembley Stadium. However, that won’t be the case on Saturday against Ukraine. They’ll travel to Italy to play Ukraine at the Stadio Olimpico in Rome.
