Southgate is under pressure to switch up his side’s 4-2-3-1 formation and revert back to his previously favoured three-man defence, while question marks surround the fitness and form of his struggling skipper Harry Kane. The team has mustered only two goals in their opening three games – both from Raheem Sterling – but crucially England have yet to concede, either.
Germany, meanwhile managed to claim second spot in Group F, having come dangerously close to elimination on a dramatic final night’s play in the “Pool of Death”, following an unconvincing 2-2 draw with Hungary. With Joachim Low set to bow out following this tournament, the German boss will be intent on keeping his side’s run going in a competition that has so far eluded him during his seven-year tenure.

How to live stream England vs Germany from outside your country
We’ve detailed how you can watch Euro 2020 from the UK, US, Australia, Canada and New Zealand down below, but bear in mind that if you’re abroad at any point during the tournament, you won’t be able to live stream the football via your usual domestic broadcaster.
This is because of geo-blocking, which restricts certain services and content to specific parts of the world. However, you can get around geo-blocks by using a VPN, or Virtual Private Network. It’s completely legal, very affordable and easy to use – and it also encrypts your browsing, offering protection against cybercriminals and government snooping.
