Raheem Sterling and Harry Kane deliver as England down Germany at Wembley

England finally got some long-awaited revenge on Germany with a 2-0 win at Wembley.

England booked their place in the Euro 2020 quarter-finals after Raheem Sterling and Harry Kane helped them to a 2-0 win over Germany at Wembley.

The two sides are familiar foes at international tournaments, with Germany generally getting the best of the previous encounters.

However, it was England who wrote a new page of history, although not without a scare or two at Wembley.

It was Sterling who delivered for England again, with the Manchester City man turning in a Luke Shaw cross with 15 minutes remaining to break the deadlock.

Thomas Muller missed a glorious chance to equalise for Germany, but Harry Kane headed home from a Jack Grealish cross to send Wembley into raptures and secure England a spot in the last eight.

What they said

Gareth Southgate: "I just thought it was a brilliant afternoon.

"We talked about bringing enjoyment to the nation and afternoons like that are what it's all about. The players were absolutely immense right through the team.

"The fans were as well - only 40,000 but it was as good an atmosphere as I can remember in Wembley.

"We played exteremely well, I think we deserved the win but I've had to say to them straight away: 'Look, I'm the party pooper, because if we don't capitalise on Saturday now then it doesn't count for anything.'

"You know you change the shape, you pick certain personnel in place of others and if it goes wrong you're dead.

"We had to go about it in the way we believed. We wanted aggressive pressure all over the field and we felt that to match them up was the right way of doing that.

"We felt that speed in behind Harry would cause them problems. I thought that Bukayo and Raheem really created that jepoardy in behind their backline right from the start. "We also defended brilliantly and our goalkeeper was immense. It was a tremendous performance."

Raheem Sterling: "We knew we needed to put a big performance in against a very good German side and I thought we done that today.

"Scoring for your country is always special and it's definitely a special moment for me.

"I celebrated and for half a second I thought 'Don't let it be offside'.

"I'm really happy it went in and I'm really happy we got the win."

Declan Rice: "It's incredible. If you look at the group stages, a lot of people had written us off: complaints about the performances ... not scoring enough goals.

"You read a load of things but as players you put them to the back of your mind but you want to prove people wrong.

"I think today with a full house, everybody had that fire in their belly to go out there and for one, knock Germany out of the tournament and two, for us to progress to the next round.

"It's history. In the press conferences all week players have been asked about past games with Germany but we've created our own little bit of history today.

"We've made the most of our opportunity today and it was a pleasure to be out there on the pitch."

Jurgen Klinsmann: "You have to recognise the moment. This is England's moment.

"You've got to realise if you go through the quarter-final you play a semi-final here, and you maybe have a sell-out crowd in the final.

"It's not going to be an easy road to the final, but it's doable. Now they have showed the belief, Harry Kane broke through and the energy is high.

"You've got to take advantage of that and win this all."

What's next for England?

A quarter-final in Rome against Ukraine, who made it through after a dramatic extra-time win over Sweden. 

The match will take place on Saturday, July 4 at 8pm BST, with the winners facing either Denmark or the Czech Republic in the semi-final.
