Posted by

The penultimate last 16 game in this summer’s delayed Euros saw Gareth Southgate’s England take on arch-rivals Germany in what was, on paper, the pick of the first knockout round’s fixtures.

After failing to beat the Germans in their last seven major tournament matches, the stats were very much against the Three Lions.

However, looking for redemption after his famous penalty miss at Euros 96′, Southgate was determined to get one over on his old nemesis.

Naming a starting 11 that included just three natural attackers, Southgate’s starting selection came under fire before a ball was even kicked.
