England beat favourites Germany to reach Quarter finals

England booked their place in Euro 2020 on Tuesday, after the Three Lions beat their eternal rivals, Germany at Wembley.

Goals from Raheem Sterling and Harry Kane were enough to send the last of this year’s Group of Death teams home, after Hungary, France, and Portugal all exited the competition before this game.

Gareth Southgate again named talisman, Jack Grealish on the bench, deciding to start youngster, Bukayo Saka and Declan Rice instead of the Aston Villa man, even though many fans called for him to start ahead of the aforementioned.

Manchester United’s Luke Shaw assisted Sterling’s opener before substitute Grealish laid a perfect pass for Tottenham’s Harry Kane to head in his first of the tournament.

Germany, as expected dominated proceedings but were left disappointed after Thomas Muller missed a sitter late on. Joachim Lowe threw in some changes, but it was too late.

The victory is the first time England has beaten Germany at Wembley since their 1966 World Cup triumph.
