The European Championship Round of 16 has already served some delectable fare with an unforgettable Monday, and now England take on Germany in a game that has been hotly contested throughout history.
Jordan Pickford is expected to keep his place in goal after putting in a series of solid performances in the group stages of the tournament, continuing his excellent form to end the season. Despite a rotating cast of defenders in front of him, the Everton #1 has made the saves that he has needed to and been involved in the build-up play with his incisive kicking too.
While some in the media continue to have an agenda against the Toffees goalie, there has been very little to criticize in how he has played so far. Even Germany’s all-star netminder Manuel Neuer agrees.

Everton’s other representative in the Three Lions squad Dominic Calvert-Lewin has not had much opportunity to play despite Harry Kane’s goal drought with England continuing to get the goals from other sources.

The last time the two sides met was in 2017 with the game ending in a 0-0 draw. However the pair have played a number of high profile clashes at big tournaments, none bigger than the 1966 World Cup Final that the English won their first global trophy, at this very venue. Germany have a slight edge, with 15 wins to England’s 13 in their 32 meetings.
