England to face Germany in Euro round of 16

Share

Probably one of the biggest clashes of round of 16 at Euro 2020 has to be England against Germany.

Gareth Southgate’s men secured top spot in Group D on Tuesday night by earning their second 1-0 win of the tournament against the Czech Republic at Wembley.

Their status as group winners is supposed to have handed them a favourable draw in the first knockout round, though it’s now been confirmed they’ll play Germany on Tuesday 29 June.

Joachim Low’s side were held to a 2-2 draw by Hungary and were twice forced to come from behind to earn a point in their final Group F outing.

Having fallen behind to a Adam Szalai goal, Kai Havertz’s second-half strike pulled them level, though Hungary immediately hit back through Andras Schafer. Low’s side was looking to be heading out of the competition, but Leon Goretzka’s 84th-minute strike ensured it would be them heading to Wembley to face England on Tuesday.
