England Beat Germany by 2-0, Progress to Quarter-Finals

On Tuesday, England defeated Germany 2-0 at Wembley Stadium and qualified for the quarter finals of EURO 2020. It is the first time in almost 55 years that the Three Lions have managed to defeat the German team in a knockout match (the last time was in the 1966 World Cup final).

In the first half, Raheem Sterling came close to scoring one of the best goals of the tournament with a powerful shot from outside the box, but a sensational save by Manuel Neuer prevented it.

Kai Havertz’s powerful volley almost put Germany ahead, but goalkeeper Jordan Pickford made a spectacular save.

In the 75th minute, a great team move by England ended with a low cross by Luke Shaw, which Sterling sent into the back of the net.

A great pass from Haverz left Thomas Muller one-on-one with Pickford, but incredibly the ball went just wide of the right post.

In the 86th minute, Jack Grealish sent in a pinpoint cross for Harry Kane and the Tottenham idol scored to make it 2-0 with a header.

Thanks to this result, England will face Ukraine in the quarterfinals. The team led by Andriy Shevchenko emerged as the winner of the day’s other match, defeating Sweden 2-1.

The road to the final at Wembley looks very promising for Gareth Southgate’s young team.
