Raheem Sterling HAS to begin towards Germany on Tuesday towards Mats Hummels in England’s last-16 Euro 2020 recreation.
That’s the view of talkSPORT host, and former Chelsea participant, Jason Cundy who believes the Three Lions shouldn’t concern their opponents.
Germany booked a last-16 conflict with England at Wembley on Tuesday due to a late Leon Goretzka purpose to ship them via second in Group F.
With simply six minutes to go, Hungary had been going via and Joachim Low’s aspect heading residence earlier than the equaliser to make it 2-2 modified the desk dramatically.
It units up one other knockout tie between England and Germany and there was some classics previously.
However Cundy believes this Germany aspect are to not be concern like these in years passed by.
“Based mostly on what I noticed tonight, they don’t seem to be the scary Germany we’ve seen previously,” Cundy mentioned on The Sports activities Bar.
“They had been going out tonight and had been getting crushed by Hungary. This isn’t the scariest Germany aspect I’ve seen.
“If ever there’s been a cause to play and never need to justify taking part in Raheem Sterling to anybody, it’s this recreation.
“Mats Hummels seems like he’s working in treacle and so they play three on the again.
“We all know who they’ve and the standard they’ve. Havertz had an off day immediately, however was sensible once they beat Portugal 4-2.
“Sane was dreadful tonight. When you consider somebody who has the standard in large video games, Toni Kroos is it.
“It’s not the German aspect of the previous the place you suppose ‘wow’. They will be robust, however I don’t suppose they’ve something we’ll be shaking in our boots about.
“While you play three on the again, the apparent area is in behind the wing-backs. Germany are going to push their wing-backs ahead and play excessive. They’re an attacking aspect.
“I imagine that’s the place we are able to genuinely damage them. You’ll love a 1-vs-1 with Hummels.”
