Alan Shearer’s England v Germany preview: England fans can make the difference

| 28.06.2021

Our Matchday Squad journalist will be covering England throughout Euro 2020

England versus Germany at Wembley. We’ve heard that somewhere before. Wow, what a game to look forward to. I thought England were much better in their final game against the Czech Republic, certainly in the first half. They have yet to concede a goal in this tournament and have looked strong defensively so that is a huge positive.

I thought Bukayo Saka, Jack Grealish and Harry Maguire were very good and now give Gareth Southgate a lot to think about when it comes to his team selection for this game.

We just need to get that forward line going a little and start scoring goals and England could be a threat in this tournament. I have no doubt in Harry Kane. His movement and was a lot better against the Czechs. I would not be concerned at all by the fact he has not scored yet. He is still going to be a very important player for England in the knockout stages of the tournament.

There is going to be just over 40,000 fans at Wembley. The extra 20,000 spectators will make a big difference. The majority will be behind England so it should be a great occasion.

Germany have struggled defensively, conceding goals, but they are Germany. You just never know. No surprise, but I think England can do it. Come on, England.

Alan Shearer

Alan Shearer played his entire career at the top level of English football, winning the Premier League title with Blackburn in 1994-95. The following summer he signed for his hometown club, Newcastle United, for a then world record £15 million fee.

He ended his playing career with a record 260 Premier League goals, which still stands today. He also won 63 caps for England, including 34 as captain, and among his 30 international goals were five scored at Euro 96, a total that won him the Golden Boot at that tournament.

Now the chief pundit on Match Of The Day, Alan was one of the first two players inducted into the Premier League Hall Of Fame this year.
