Decades of pain. Sterling had 15 minutes remaining in the last 16 tight matches at Wembley, after which Kane won England’s first knockout win over Germany since 1966. In the 55 years since England defeated Germany in the Cup final of the World, the Three Lions have experienced a series of painful defeats against Die Mannschaft when the stakes were high.
England were eliminated by Germany in the 1970, 1990 and 2010 World Cups, and Germany also defeated them in the semifinals of the 1996 European Championship at Wembley.
But Gareth Southgate’s team finally dispelled the specter of Paul Gascoigne’s tears and his own failed coach’s penalty 25 years ago.
England showed a courageous performance, Sterling scored three goals in the game and Kane finally scored his first game.
England are yet to concede a goal in the match and will travel to Rome on Saturday to participate in the quarterfinals against the winners of the other 16 matches between Sweden and Ukraine on Tuesday
Chasing the first major international trophy since 1966, England’s draw looks open, and a possible semi-final against Denmark or the Czech Republic is unlikely to scare them away.
