England: The lack of scoring is a concern, especially when you consider they played a poor Scotland team and a Croatia side that conceded five to Spain in a round of 16 loss. While the side clearly has talent in attack, the performances have just been underwhelming. In their three group stage games the Three Lions have produced just six shots on goal. That won’t cut it against a relentless German side that will feel good about their chances. If the likes of Phil Foden and Harry Kane can better connect, especially in small areas of space, then England will have their shot.
Germany: Another team that has been far from consistent, we did see a glimpse of their potential in the 4-2 thrashing of Portugal. But with the defensive issues, do we see Joachim Low go to four in the back to provide a bit of stability? With how much Joshua Kimmich and Robin Gosens like to get forward, sliding in another defender just may be the key. Expect some changes for this side after that draw with Hungary, with Leon Goretzka likely earning the start for his heroics off the bench.
England start strong, but the lack of creativity in attack is their downfall in the end as Germany win it on a goal from Kimmich. Pick: Germany 2, England 1
