Euro Cup 2020: Another upset has been seen in Euro Cup 2020 on Tuesday. England has not only made it to the quarter-finals by defeating Germany but has also created history. After a long gap of 56 years, England has managed to beat Germany in a knockout match.
England beat Germany 2-0 to make it to the quarter-finals of Euro Cup 2020. With this defeat Germany’s journey has come to an end. Rahim Sterling and Harry Kane played an important role in ending Germany’s journey. Rahim scored in the 75th minute while Kane scored in the 86th minute to take it 2-0.
This is Sterling’s third goal of the tournament. He is the highest goalscorer for England in this championship this year. This is England’s first win in a knockout match over Germany at Wembley since 1966. England will face Ukraine in the quarter-finals.
However, there was a fierce competition between the two teams in the beginning. In the first half, Germany had created some scoring opportunities but they could not capitalize on them. Germany, however, had to bear the brunt of this as well and after trailing 2-0 in the second half, they were left with no way to return.
France and Portugal are also out
However, Germany is not the first major team to miss out on a place in the quarter-finals of the Euro Cup 2020. There were two more major upsets in the pre-quarterfinals. Last Euro Cup winners Portugal were defeated by Belgium, while Switzerland ended the reign of world champions France in the pre-quarterfinals itself. Apart from this, Spain also decided to bid farewell to Croatia, who created history by reaching the final of FIFA World Cup 2018.
