The English star cream did not find a common tone yet in the initial block. It has to happen on Tuesday night.
Football The quarter-finals of the European Championships will see a real classic match as England and Germany clash together at Wembley Stadium in London.
Neither of the great football powers is quite in line with their golden years, but that doesn’t diminish the significance of the match or the expectations of the fans at all.
England is once again on the shoulders of massive pressures. In light of the results, the team has survived the expectations well, but the results in the first block 1-0, 0-0 and 1-0 tell the harsh language about the team’s problems. Goal scoring and pounding.
The problem is special, because on paper England should have firepower galore. Star striker Harry Kane has not been struck once, and behind him rage Phil Foden, Mason Mount and Marcus Rashford are also unpainted.

In the 1990s, Germany disciplined England in penalty shootouts, which have been a cry of grief for the British throughout the history of the national team.
When England won their only gold so far at the World Cup in 1966, who faced anyone but Germany. “Die Mannschaft” has as many as seven value wins.
Tuesday the winner of the match will be awaited by very pleasant opponents in further rounds. In the semi-finals, either Sweden or Ukraine will compete, and in the semi-finals, the winner of the Czech-Danish match will also be the winner. The road to the finals couldn’t be much easier on paper.
