England maintained their place in the quarter-finals of Euro 2020 when they defeated rivals Germany at Wembley Stadium 2-0. The scorer converted moments after his substitution, which ushered in Germany’s liberation, as Thomas Muller hit the turf in relief after his goal.
Raheem Sterling tapped into his third Euro 2020 goal and put England ahead in the second half before Harry Kane opened the scoring with a late header. At stake in the quarter-finals of UEFA Euro 2020 is the trip to London’s Wembley Stadium this weekend. England will either face Sweden or Ukraine in Rome when they aim to reach the 2018 World Cup semi-finals.
The semi-finals of UEFA Euro 2020 have been confirmed after a frantic 16-16 quarter-final which ushered in the knockout stage and knocked many big names out of the tournament. Spain, two-time European champions in 2008 and 2012, will play Switzerland on Friday in their first quarter-final, where they will face reigning world champions France in the knock-out stages. The schedule and kick-off times for each quarter-final match can be found below.
The long-delayed tournament begins on Friday with Turkey’s clash with defending champions Italy in Rome. The tournament, which begins in Rome on Friday, will see 24 teams play in 11 cities.
The tournament begins with the group matches between Turkey and Italy in Rome . Portugal are in a group with Hungary, last year’s winners France and Germany, the defending champions from 2016. The knockout stages begin on June 26, with the final taking place at Wembley Stadium in London on July 11.
Teams receive three points for a victory, one for a draw and zero for a defeat in their three group games. The top two teams in each group plus the four best third-placed teams advance to knockout stage.
Teams will be seeded according to the rankings of European qualifying groups based on their results in qualifying for the 2020 European Championship. If the hosts qualify, they will advance to the play-offs, which will be drawn to determine which teams will contest the three group games at home and away. In the infamous “Group of Death” (Group F), two teams will battle it out to reach the 2016 final: reigning champions Portugal and runners-up France.
Should one of the host teams qualify directly or the other not qualify, the host team would play all three group games at home, while the other would qualify for two away games. If one host team progresses to the play-offs and the other drops out, both host teams would automatically qualify in the play-offs and play the three group games away. If both hosts do not qualify directly, the winner will be determined by the place in the host match, which will be played in two of the three matches according to the above criteria, with the host city hosting both teams.
Italy were one of the first teams to qualify for the 2020 UEFA Euro finals. The Azzurri lead the group by three points and need just one win against Switzerland on Wednesday to secure a place in Europe’s top 16.
While the international sporting world focuses on the Tokyo Olympics, Europe’s top competitors are dueling for continental pride in the world’s most popular sport. This summer cancelled due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the Euro 2020 football championship will finally be held from Friday. Twenty-four nations are competing across Europe for one of the top prizes.
UEFA Euro 2020 distributes 331 million euros to the participating national teams. That is EUR 40 million less than was originally budgeted for the pre-pandemic tournament, but it remains the largest sum ever spent on a European Championship. The winners of the Euro 2020 football championship will receive an additional 3 million euros.
Munich’s Lord Mayor Dieter Reiter called UEFA’s decision not to let the Allianz Arena shine in rainbow colours in favour of LGBTIQ + “shameful.”. UEFA banned rainbow-coloured adverts for two Euro 2020 quarter-final matches between Russia and Azerbaijan.
