Get in there mate! Raheem Sterling goal helps seal memorable England win2 min read
Manchester City’s Raheem Sterling helped England book their place in the quarter-finals of Euro 2020.
He netted his third goal of the tournament to take England into the lead against Germany at Wembley.
Another goal from Harry Kane in the final minutes sealed the win to give the Three Lions a night to remember against an old enemy.
At this dedicated fan park in Manchester, the crowd went wild after that first goal late in the second half:
Some 40,000 supporters were inside the stadium, many wearing the colours of the home nation, roared as their team went ahead thanks to Sterling’s third goal of the tournament in the 75th minute.
They included an animated Duke of Cambridge, the FA president, who threw his arms aloft alongside his seven-year-old son, Prince George, and the Duchess of Cambridge, as the goal went in.
Moments before the half-time whistle, Sterling burst clear into the box before being challenged. Picked up by captain Harry Kane, his heavy touch allowed the German backline to recover.
England avoided early disappointment at the start of the second half, with keeper Jordan Pickford making a fine save, tipping a Germany’s Havertz piledriver over his crossbar.
With England struggling to open up Germany’s defence, crowds erupted when Garath Southgate turned to his bench to bring on Jack Grealish.
In the 75th minute, Raheem Sterling struck again for England, putting the Three Lions u by 1-0.
Harry Kane finally scored for the first time in the tournament, scoring a second goal for England with five minutes remaining.
Southgate, now managing the national team, reacted with his customary composure as his side went ahead.
England will now play Ukraine, who beat Sweden 2-1, in the quarter finals of the European Championships.
