London: The pre-quarter matches of Euro 2020 will end today. England vs Germany and Sweden vs Ukraine in the final. The match will be played at 9.30 pm and 12.30 pm.
Can the English team break the history and cross the German wall?
England and Germany are the two teams with the best squad strength. But the fact is that neither team has shown a performance of its kind that calls for its prowess in the group stage.

Despite criticism and pressure on both teams, it is safe to say that England and Germany are a bombshell that could explode at any moment. Gareth Southgate’s strategy is to write England’s fate today. It remains to be seen who will keep Harry Kane on the wing and give the defensive midfielders the midfield or give the attacking midfielders full responsibility for controlling the game. If Southgate does not have the tactics to land a right fullback on the left wing, the English team can hope for the last eight.

It is safe to say that Germany was ready to attack Wimbledon today. But the main hurdle for the former world champions is how to defend themselves if the English team comes up with a counter-attack. The performance of the midfield led by Tony Cruise will be an assessment of Germany’s forward journey. England will have to wait for another euro to correct that history if they get the ball right into the middle English box.
Will Ukraine support Sweden’s bus parking and counter-attack?
Euro 2020 is a tournament with a lot of ups and downs. Today’s Sweden’s-Ukraine match is the second such match. Sweden have reached the last 16 after beating former Euro champions Spain to second place.

Ukraine is not so special. There has been no other performance from the Ukraine side other than beating a weakened North Macedonia in the tournament. But it cannot be written off. An example is the fact that even France collapsed in front of Switzerland in the knockout stage last day.
