20 mins GOAL Germany 1-0 England
Manuel Neuer’s goalkick sails over John Terry’s head and Miroslav Klose shows great strength and coolness to hold off Matthew Upson and poke past David James. Klose could have gone down there and Upson would have been sent off, but he bagged his 50th international goal instead.
32 mins GOAL Germany 2-0 England
England’s defence is an absolute shambles. Germany attack down the right and one clever flick from Miroslav Klose tees up Thomas Mueller. With England’s central defenders nowhere to be seen Mueller plays it over the top to Lukas Podolski and from a tight angle on the left of the six-yard box, he smashes low past David James. Stunning finish, and England are suitably stunned.
37 mins GOAL Germany 2-1 England
Now it’s Germany’s turn to self-destruct. Steven Gerrard flings a cross over from the England right and with Manuel Neuer all over the place, Matthew Upson rises imperiously to head into the empty net
67 mins GOAL Germany 3-1 England
That’s an absolute disaster for England. A Frank Lampard free-kick from 25 yards is blocked and Gareth Barry loses the ball – from then on, it’s about Germany breaking with pace. They get forward quickly, Bastian Schweinsteiger plays a perfect pass for Thomas Mueller and inside the area, on the right, he fairly smashes it off the body of David James and into the net.
70 mins GOAL Germany 4-1 England
Joe Cole crosses from the England right, the cross is blocked, and then it’s all about Germany’s pace again. Gareth Barry is one-on-one with Mesut Ozil and frankly it’s no contest, Ozil races past him, glides effortlessly into the area and taps a cross along the six-yard box for Thomas Mueller to whack in. It’s like taking candy from a baby.
