    Euro 2020 Past Ripped Up as England defeats Germany 2-0 in Round of 16


    In the 1966 World Cup final for the National Team's best football victory, England defeated West Germany in extra time. But at the 1972 European Championships the West Germans triumphed 3-1 and then in the semi-finals in 1996 won penalties.

    England was near restoration of parity in 1996 when a two-goal effort by Frank Lampard on the edge of the penalty box struck the base and jumped down beyond the target line before returning to Manuel Neuer.

    After the match, Neuer, now leading the German national side on the 2020 Euro, confessed that the match officers were being tormented after the tie. He added, He continued, "I tried not to react to the referee and just concentrate on what was happening. I realised it was over the line and I think the way I carried on so quickly fooled the referee into thinking it was not over."
