Euro 2020: England to face Germany at Wembley in the Round of 16

England will face Germany at Wembley in the Euro 2020 Round of 16 after Joachim Löw’s side secured a Group F runners-up spot with a 2-2 draw against Hungary.  

England beat Czech Republic 1-0 yesterday to advance as group winners in Group and set up a clash against the second placed side in Group F at Wembley on Tuesday. 

But, with the so-called ‘Group of Death’ still wide open, the Three Lions were unsure who they would face out of France, Portugal, Germany or Hungary.

But with France and Portugal drawing their game, and Germany drawing 2-2 with Hungary, it means England will now face the Germans at Wembley.

The match will be a repeat of the infamous 1996 Euros semi-final, also at Wembley, which saw England crash out against their rivals after Gareth Southgate missed the deciding penalty in a dramatic shoot-out. 

The Germans also beat England in a shoot-out in the 1990 World Cup semi-finals held in Italy, leading to fears from fans that another defeat on penalties is ‘inevitable’.

One wrote: ‘If we get Germany next Tuesday, you just know it’s going to end in penalties. Deja Vu.’

Another joked: ‘ It’s been ages since we lost a penalty shootout to #Germany at #Wembley in a major tournament! Bring it on I say.’

While a third simply pleaded: ‘So England will be playing the 2nd placed team from group f. That’s a tough draw but we can do it

‘Please not penalties against the Germans.’ 

Despite it being Germany in the Round of 16, there was also optimism, with some fans proclaiming that football is ‘coming home’ after yesterday’s victory over the Czech Republic saw England top their group. 

Gareth Southgate’s side secured top-spot in Group D after Raheem Sterling’s 12th-minute header proved to be enough.

Looking ahead, one fan wrote: ‘All the negativity on here about England, get on board. Get behind the lads. It’s coming home. We have not hit our peak yet, the best is yet to come so get on the rollercoaster.’

Another said: ‘If England can get through the Ro16, we’re making it to the final. It’s coming home!’

While a third added: ‘ Loads of positives to take from tonight, group winners, no goals conceded. COME ON ENGLAND. ITS COMING HOME!’

England will play their Round of 16 match at Wembley in front of 40,000 fans. 

However, they will be without Mason Mount and Ben Chilwell, who are in self-isolation.

The Chelsea pair were forced to miss Tuesday’s 1-0 win over the Czech Republic and are unlikely to be unavailable for the next week’s round of 16 clash as they have been forced to isolate after spending time with their club mate Billy Gilmour after the 1-0 win over Scotland.

Gareth Southgate, England’s head coach, is furious about the issue, having found out late that he would not be able to use Mount or Chilwell, and there is an exasperation within the camp that England are without key players who have continually tested negative.
