Match Preview

The England national team will face Germany in the last 16 match of Euro 2020 at Wembley Stadium, Tuesday (29/6/2021) night IST. In this match, the Three Lions Team was haunted by a bad record against Germany.

England won a ticket to the knock-out phase of Euro 2020 after winning 1-0 over Croatia, drawing 0-0 with Scotland, and winning 1-0 over the Czech Republic in the last match.

These results make The Three Lions are at the top of Group D with seven points. In addition to qualifying as group winners, the England national team's goal is also still sterile in this tournament.

There are a number of opinions that say England should not be afraid of Germany. The reason is that the German national team is now not as good as it used to be, including when they silenced England with a score of 4-1 in the last 16 of the 2010 World Cup.

Gareth Southgate's team is also relatively more consistent and stable. They won eight times, scored a total of 17 goals, and conceded just one goal in the last nine matches.

That's a bit of a contrast to Germany, which has only won twice in its last six matches. In addition, Joachim Loew's troops had to struggle to escape from the hell group. In the last match of Group F, they even fell behind twice and equalized twice against Hungary.

However, we cannot forget some facts. First, Germany's qualification as runner-up in the Hell group shows that their fighting spirit cannot be underestimated.

After losing 0-1 to world champions France in the first match, Die Mannschaft was able to bounce back in the second match by beating defending champions Portugal 4-2. Being in a very tough group makes them more mentally honed.

Second, playing at Wembley is not a patent guarantee for England when it comes to dealing with Germany. England is winless in their last seven games against Germany at their proud stadium.

Third, Germany has never lost in the last 16 of a major tournament, winning five times at the Euros and eight times at the World Cup. This is a special note.

Is this a sign that the England national team will again be subject to the hands of Germany, and fail to qualify for the quarter-finals of Euro 2020?
