Germany vs England match prediction

Both sides have had their moments in the Group stage and this is set to be a classic encounter between two sides with proud footballing traditions.

Germany appear to pack more punch up forward and each team is strong defensively which will make converting chances the most important facet of the game.

This game has all the makings of a draw or if anything a German win, but we fancy the score after 90 minutes will be even.
