 England vs German - Arch Rivalry That Lasts Over Half-Century

Wembley Stadium hosts a blockbuster clash between England and Germany as the Euro 2020 Round of 16 reaches its conclusion. It's a massive rivalry (at least from England's side) and will feature a lot of betting activity. If you're interested in betting on the game, see Keo168 or the bookmaker of your choice for the latest odds.

If we can for a moment neglect the non-football related tensions between the two countries, the rivalry between England and Germany dates all the way back to 1966.

The teams have met 12 times at Wembley so far, with England going winless in their last seven encounters with the Germans after winning four of their first five matches at the national stadium.

At the European Championships, Die Mannschaft have come out victorious in both of their meetings with the Three Lions, including a 1-0 win in the group stages at Euro 2000.

Bringing World Cups into the equation, England and Germany have locked horns across major tournaments seven times so far, with both sides recording two wins each along with three draws.

Despite failing to win any of their six knock-out games at the European Championships within regulation time, Gareth Southgate's men will be keen to avoid penalties.

They have ended up on the losing side in three of their four penalty shoot-outs at the Euro finals, which has been the case in their last two penalty races against Germany.

We will have to go back to the famous 1966 World Cup final to find England's last victory over Germany (West Germany at the time) at a major tournament.

Wembley was the venue when Geoff Hurst propelled his team to a 4-2 extra-time win with a memorable hat-trick.

However, it's been all Germany since that London day.

From Gerd Müller's extra-time winner in the quarter-finals of the 1970 World Cup to Frank Lampard's ghost goal not given in South Africa 2010, the Three Lions have been put to the sword by the Germans in four consecutive major tournament encounters.

Thomas Muller, who bagged a quick-fire second-half brace to seal England's World Cup exit 11 years ago, is one of just two German players to play at Euro 2020.

The other one is Real Madrid stalwart Toni Kroos, who was on the scoresheet for Germany in England's last H2H victory in a friendly back in March 2016.

Since beating Joachim Low's side 3-2 five years ago, the Three Lions have gone two straight clashes against Germany without scoring, including a goalless draw in their last showdown back in November 2017.

Despite their poor recent run against Germany, England will be confident of coming out on top after keeping a clean sheet in each of their three matches at Euro 2020 so far.

One thing that might strike fear into the hearts of German fans is England's inexorable 14-match unbeaten streak at new Wembley across Euros and World Cup finals.
