Euro 2020: Sterling, Kane Score As England Knock Out Germany

Germany are out of the ongoing Euro 2020 tournament after losing 2-0 to England on Tuesday at Wembley in their Round of 16 tie.

Goals from Raheem Sterling and Harry Kane saw the Three Lions roaring into the quarter-finals while German kissed the tournament bye.

After a barren first half, Gareth Southgate’s men turned things around in the second half with Sterling scoring from Luke Shaw’s well-tailored cross in the 75th minute.

Sterling who is the only second player to score each of England’s first three goals of an edition of a major tournament almost ruined the day when he lost possession and it almost resulted in an equaliser for the Germans.

The Germans did press to get back in the game but their hearts were broken when Jack Grealish crossed the ball and Kane headed in to double the lead for the Three Lions.

According to Opta, Kane has now equalled Wayne Rooney for goals scored at major tournaments for England (7), with only Gary Lineker (10) and Alan Shearer (9) netting more across the World Cup & EUROs for the Three Lions.
Hard as they tried, the Germans could not get into the game and that effectively meant they were knocked from Euro 2020.

With German’s exit, all the big guns in Group F who were all termed as favourites have all crashed out as France and Portugal are also out.

England will now await who will be their quarter-final opponents between Sweden and Ukraine.
