Raheem Sterling’s third goal of the tournament helped England beat Germany 2-0 and progress into the quarter-finals of Euro 2020.

The City icon, Gareth Southgate’s side’s top scorer thus far, once again stepped up when it mattered most grabbed the opening goal at Wembley Stadium.

England skipper Harry Kane then slid home a second to put the game in the history books as a great night for the Three Lions.

City teammates John Stones and Kyle Walker provided were pretty good defensively in a back three across the full ninety, while Phil Foden wasn’t called into action from the bench.

As we are happy for England stars, there’s some hurt for Ilkay Gundogan, whose tournament is over at the last 16 stage. He was an unused sub and thought to have been injured.

The victory sees England into the last eight, with Oleksandr Zinchenko’s Ukraine or Sweden awaiting in the next round on Saturday in Rome.
