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