The Three Lions ran-out 2-0 winners at Wembley to seal a first win over Germany in the knockout stages of a major tournament since the famous World Cup win of 1996.

After a cagey first half, late strikes from Raheem Sterling and Harry Kane sealed victory for England – who will now play either Sweden or Ukraine in the last eight of Euro 2020.

The side were indebted to a fine save from Pickford in the second half, as he acrobatically tipped over a well-struck effort from Kai Havertz when the game was still goalless.

It was a fourth straight clean sheet for the Washington-born Sunderland academy graduate, who played the full 90 minutes of the clash.

Sunderland-born midfielder Henderson, meanwhile, was introduced as a late substitute and played a key role in helping England see out the memorable triumph.
