Germany 4-1 England: Brilliant German performance demolishes lifeless England

The House Where I Grew Up, Johannesburg
“A monumental thrashing for England, at the hands of a German side who had pace, movement, tactical awareness and ruthlessness in front of goal. At times they appeared to be playing football from a different world. England were simultaneously boxey and positionally woeful – quite a difficult combination to achieve. Germany, on the other hand, played superbly. This performance from a young side in a high-pressure situation demonstrated remarkable quality in both technically and mentally. The analysis of the goals will go on for days, the obituaries of English football will go on for weeks, but Germany’s performance should not be underestimated.” (Zonal Marking)
