England to face Germany in last 16 of Euro 2020 as Three Lions' path to glory confirmed


England will face old foes Germany in their first knockout stage match at Euro 2020 after Joachim Loew’s side progressed as Group F runners-up courtesy of a thrilling 2-2 draw with Hungary on Wednesday evening. The match will be played in front of 45,000 supporters at Wembley Stadium on Tuesday afternoon with a kick-off time of 5.00pm.

Germany confirmed their participation in the fixture thanks to the result at the Allianz Arena, with Leon Goretzka’s late equaliser saving the four-time world champions from a humiliating defeat on home soil.

Hungary took the lead on two occasions but were unable to hold on and progress to the knockout stages of the tournament despite a commendable performance.

France finished as Group F winners on five pounts points after winning just one and drawing two of their three matches, while Portugal also qualified for the knockout stages in third place after playing out a 2-2 stalemate of their own with the 2018 World Cup winners.

Meanwhile, England’s narrow victory over the Czech Republic on Tuesday sealed their place at the top of Group D.

Raheem Sterling’s early goal proved to be the difference between the two sides, with Bukayo Saka and Jack Grealish also starring for the Three Lions.
