Come on England!
Come on England!
By this time tomorrow, all England fans will know whether they can continue watching the World Cup with a keen interest in looking at potential opposition, or whether they will be forced to look on as jealous spectators watching other teams progress through the tournament.

These are the knock-out stages of the World Cup, and in every game from now on the aim is to win. England’s inability to top their group has forced the match between themselves and Germany, and arguably created a more difficult path for progression through the tournament, but the fact remain the same – England must win!

Germany made a flying start to the World Cup and looked by far the most impressive of the so called “big” teams, although admittedly it was only against a disappointing 10-man Australia that they swept aside 4-0. Since that win the Germans have looked a bit shaky as their young side limped into the last sixteen rather than at the canter it first looked like they would do. In contrast, England started off poor against the USA and got worse against Algeria. That led to a barrage of criticism from the press before they finally managed to put in a performance in the last group game against Slovenia, although many England fans will have wanted a greater winning margin than the 1-0 scoreline that game ended up being.

England v Germany is one the most recognised fixtures in world football, and it has created it’s fair share of headlines over the years, although irritatingly most of those have been in favour of the Germans.

However, this Sunday England get the chance to level the scores up a little and send ze Germans prematurely packing to their no doubt already reserved poolside sun loungers. As the match edges closer, I thought it may be a good idea to give England fans some classic memories of matches between England and Germany, and where better to start then back in 2001?
