That was a lot of fun. England v Germany at Wembley, it almost had to be. They're a long way from their best though, we shouldn't be scared of playing them. Might not won, but we definitely can, probably should.

England have home advantage but have played 3 bang average teams. Germany played 2 teams who are among the favourites to win the tournament and playing better teams may serve them better in knock out stages. I make Germany slight favourites but anything can happen.

Draw opens up massively for the winner of England v Germany.

Key is who scores first, our defence is shoddy and if we have to chase the game, England have quick players to exploit that.
I would expect a change with possibly Emre Can coming into the midfield to add a bit more defensive bite. Also please not Sane again from the start - far too wasteful

It might be worth Southgate turning to his Bundesliga expert Mr Sancho for a place in the starting XI

I was shocked as to how lax in possession the Germans were. Sane and Havertz in particular. Yes the conditions were awful and the Hungarians played out of their skin but Germany certainly are a shadow of their former selves. That's not to say they won't give us a stern test on Tuesday but last night gives hope.

That's the route to the final. Very left side heavy there, Spain v France and Italy v Belgium the likely quarters. Good thing we won the group!

Blimey.

If we can get past Germany, that's one of the 'easiest' routes to the final one could hope for.

Definitely think Germany are a better side to play than either Portugal or France. That said with Kane's poor form and a potentially negative set up from Southgate I'm not overly optimistic of winning the match.
