    MORE RICE

    Here's what Rice had to say on England progressing to the quarter-finals: "We don't want to get too ahead of ourselves because Saturday is a massive game as well now.

    "We travel to Rome, we want to win that and progress into the semi-finals.

    "But all I can say about today is the occasion, the fans, the players, how we were up for it in the changing room… 

    "I've not been part of a team with togetherness like this.

    "We're all in it with each other and we really believe we have the quality and we really believe with the tournament pretty much being at Wembley we can keep progressing."

    Some excellent performances all over the pitch, but who do YOU think was the star man for England?

    RICE SPEAKS

    Rice told the BBC: "It’s incredible.

    "If you look at the group stages, a lot of people had written us off…. complaints about the performances … not scoring enough goals.

    "You read a load of things but as players you put them to the back of your mind but you want to prove people wrong.

    "I think today with a full house, everybody had that fire in their belly to go out there and for one, knock Germany out of the tournament and two, for us to progress to the next round.

    “It’s history.

    "In the press conferences all week players have been asked about past games with Germany but we’ve created our own little bit of history today.

    "We’ve made the most of our opportunity today and it was a pleasure to be out there on the pitch.”

    CAPTAIN KANE

    Captain Harry Kane grew into the game in the second half and opened his Euros goal account.

    STERLING SPEAKS

    Goal-scorer Raheem Sterling spoke to the BBC after the game: "We knew we needed to put a big performance in against a very good German side and I thought we done that today.

    "Scoring for your country is always special and it’s definitely a special moment for me."

    Sterling also singled out midfield duo Declan Rice and Kalvin Phillips who went toe-to-toe with one of the best midfielders of the last Decade, Kroos and came out on top.

    He said they were "eating up the ground”.

    FULL-TIME STATS: ENGLAND 2-0 GERMANY

    The Three Lions sent Wembley into pandemonium!

  • Joshua Mbu

    FT: ENGLAND 2-0 GERMANY

    England found themselves on the back foot early on in the second half, but much like the first, the Three Lions weathered the storm.

    Every England man was battling hard, especially the midfielders.

    And finally, England found a breakthrough with a sweeping counter attack.

    Sterling started the attack, and he finished it off meeting Shaw's inch perfect cross.

    Germany very nearly equalised through Muller, but the German uncharacteristically missed the target.

    And Kane finished the game off meeting Grealish's pass.

    England are through to the quarter-finals and they'll play either Ukraine or Sweden.

    England are favourites now, surely?
