England on Tuesday made history by ending a 55-year wait for knockout after beating Germany in the ongoing Euro 2020 tournament.
The Three Lions beat Germany 2-0 in a game that England was in serious need to win surviving periods of struggle to overcome old rivals who have so often got the better of them.
Apart from England being in need of the triumph, the win was also Gareth Southgate’s biggest and most important victory, since he has been in charge of the team.
The next game for England will be against Ukraine, but the Three Lions have gotten a lot of confidence to face them, even as almighty France was knocked out by Switzerland.
England believe they can always get better, considering how they started, and their latest as it is of much value for the English team.

The victory for England has triggered reactions from fans and football icons. Former captain Alan Shearer was one of them. Shearer said:
“I’ve been fortunate enough to play at Wembley but I cannot ever remember it being that loud – and there were only 40,000 there.
“What England are doing really well in this tournament is staying in the game and keeping it tight. We must have one of the best benches at Euro 2020.”
