Germany have been eliminated from the European Championship. In the Round of 16 clash against England, the four-time World Cup winners lost 2-0 at London's Wembley Stadium on Tuesday evening. Raheem Sterling scored the decisive goal for The Three Lions in the 75th minute, before Harry Kane wrapped up the win four minutes from time.

Take a knee - before kick-off, the teams made a statement for diversity and against any form of discrimination.

For the Germans, four players from FC Bayern started in the form of captain Manuel Neuer, Joshua Kimmich, Leon Goretzka and Thomas Müller. In addition, Serge Gnabry, Leroy Sané and Jamal Musiala came in off the bench in the second half.

Even first half

Germany started well: after a fine pass from Müller, Goretzka was through, but was stopped by a foul (8'). At the other end, Neuer saved Sterling's shot from distance (16'). Germany's best chance in the first half came from Timo Werner, who failed to beat England keeper Jordan Pickford from close range (32'). Shortly before the break, the German team were lucky when Mats Hummels denied England in the nick of time.

Müller narrowly misses chance for equaliser

Thomas Müller missed an opportunity to tie the game in the 81st minute.

In the second half, Kai Havertz had the first big chance, but Pickford was able to keep out his shot (49'). A quarter of an hour before the end, England took the lead. After a cross from Luke Shaw, Sterling poked the ball over the line. In the 81st minute, Müller had the chance to equalise. The attacking player was 1 vs. 1 in front of Pickford, but dragged the ball the wrong side of the post. Four minutes before the end, Kane sealed the deal with his header.

On 13 August, FC Bayern start the Bundesliga season with an away match in Mönchengladbach:
