There is no need to tell you about the significance of the game between England and Germany. These two sides meet in the Round of 16 at EURO 2020, and the entire European continent has gone wild because of it. ProSports.net delivers a preview of this game.
England vs. Germany Preview
The Three Lions won Group D, without a goal conceded, while on the other side scoring two. Both of their wins, against Croatia and the Czech Republic, came with the same result, 1-0, while the third event against the old rival, Scotland, finished without goals.
England didn’t allow a goal in the last five games and eight times over the past ten events, which is quite impressive. The defensive line is working perfectly, which can’t be said for the attackers and forwards.
Harry Kane and his teammates scored four times in the previous five matches, and that is simply too low for a team that aims to win the European title. England’s captain hasn’t been in the mood lately, but Raheem Sterling covered up for him, delivering two goals for Albion at EURO.
After shredding Portugal into pieces, the fans expected to see Germany handling Hungary in the same way. In the end, the four-time world champs battled for their life against the pesky Hungarians, who had the lead until six minutes before the end and Leon Goretzka’s goal. Bayern’s midfielder saved his nation from another disaster leveling the score at 2-2.
The Germans are playing good football, especially their midfield that is probably the best in the entire tournament. What are the problems in their unit, are the backline and the attack.
Die Mannschaft’s defense is pretty unstable and allows goals frequently. Can you believe that Germany kept only one clean sheet in the previous six clashes? Meanwhile, the strikers aren’t at the needed level, missing too many good chances, having a minor impact on the game.
England vs. Germany Head to Head
The last match was in 2017, a goalless draw in the friendly international. When it comes to their games at Wembley, we’ll mention just two of them. The 1966 World Cup finals, and England’s win after overtimes, 4-1. and the 1996 EURO semis, once Germany advanced to the finals following the penalties. The Germans won that championship.
England vs. Germany Pick
Our money here is on the guests, who might be having certain troubles, but look much better than England, who had far easier opponents in its group. These wins and clean sheets are a product of that, and all the Albion’s flaws will be exposed against Germany.
