LONDON: England will face Germany at Wembley on Tuesday in the Euro 2020 last 16 while Wales take on Denmark in Amsterdam on Saturday.
Gareth Southgate’s side progressed as group winners but had to wait until the conclusion of Group F on Wednesday to find out who they would meet.
Germany twice came from behind to draw with Hungary and, with Portugal and France also drawing, that was enough for Joachim Low’s side to finish second, behind France.
Wales finished as runners-up in Group A to Italy, who stormed through with maximum points to set up a tie with Austria.
The draw throws up all sorts of historic football memories – from England’s 4-2 extratime victory in the 1966 World Cup Final to the German victories in the quarter-finals of the 1970 World Cup, semi-finals of the 1990 World Cup and Euro 96 – both on penalties – and in the second round of the 2010 World Cup in Bloemfontein.

Yhe Three Lions could potentially meet Wales in the semi-final at Wembley four days later.
Standing in Wales’ way, should they progress from the last 16, would be the winners of the Netherlands versus the Czech Republic.
On the other side of the draw, lurk Italy, Belgium, France or Spain…
