England have had tough luck against Germany. The 3 Lions have lost four times to Germany in major tournaments since the 1966 World Cup final. Since 1966, the two sides have met eight times at major tournaments. In that time, England only won once, at the group stage of Euro 2000. Current manager Gareth Southgate is not new to heartbreak against Germany. Southgate missed the decisive penalty that ended England’s journey at the Euro 1996 semi-final against the Germans. This new England team have had their own problems at Euro 2020 as well. They have only scored 2 goals so far in this tournament and have struggled in front of goal. Southgate will need to get his attacking stars to rediscover their form to navigate this tie.

Germany are no longer their usual dominating self. They are a team in transition. Long serving manager Joachim Low who took Germany to the final of Euro 2008, 3rd place at the 2010 World Cup, Euro 2012 & 2016 semis & won the 2014 World Cup is leaving after Euro 2020. Low’s Germany team has however been in shambles of late. In just 3 months, they lost at home to North Macedonia and 6-0 to Spain. They have also lost to France at this Euros and had to snatch a draw against Hungary to progress. Germany failed to progress beyond the group stage at the 2018 World Cup. Low will look to right that wrong and win the 1 trophy beyond his grasp as Germany manager. He has to beat England to progress however and to do that, his team needs to display a much improved performance.
