England Vs Germany

Fabio Capellos injury hit side will take on Germany at the Wembley Stadium. With just 4 regular player starting up, England look very weak. Will the likes of Abgonlahor and Micah Richards prevent another loss in 15 month against Germany?

Scotland  Vs Argentina

Marodonas' side Argentina is playing aginst 12th seeded Scotland at Hampden. Scotland is hard to beat at home but will Marodona be successful in his first assignment as Manager?

Germany vs England in pictures

Engand 4-2 West Germany (aet)

This was the first competitive meeting between the two nations - and it has yet to be surpassed in terms of importance, drama and controversy.

In front of a capacity crowd of 96,924 - and with about 400 million more watching on TV - extra-time was needed with the score at 2-2.

England took the lead when Geoff Hurst's shot hit the underside of the bar and was judged to have bounced over the goal-line - but the debate still rages today whether the goal should have been given.

Hurst went on to complete his hat-trick and become the first man ever to do so in a World Cup final - and no other player has matched him since.

It remains England's only World Cup final appearance, while Germany have won the trophy three times and been runners-up four times.

West Germany 3-2 England (aet)

England went into the tournament confident they could retain their title.

And after 50 minutes of their quarter-final, England looked to be on course to progress when Martin Peters added to Alan Mullery's opener and made it 2-0.

But West Germany pulled a goal back when England keeper Peter Bonetti - playing in place of Gordon Banks, who had food poisoning - somehow dived over a Franz Beckenbauer shot and eight minutes later Uwe Seller equalised to take the game to extra-time.

Some might say karma intervened then, when Geoff Hurst had a perfectly good goal ruled out, four years after his controversial goal in the 66 final.

And it was left to legendary West German striker Gerd Muller to volley in the winner to seal a dramatic comeback victory.

First leg: England 1-3 West Germany
Second leg: West Germany 0-0 England

West Germany were the form team going into the tournament and there was to be no upsetting the formbook when Bobby Moore's team met Franz Beckenbauer's side in London.

Francis Lee (far left) cancelled out Uli Hoeness' opener but England were heading for the worst defeat at Wembley under Sir Alf Ramsey.

West Germany retook the lead when Moore conceded a penalty after bringing down Siegfried Held and keeper Gordon Banks was unable to do more than push Gunter Netzer's penalty into the post and in.

England's misery - and West Germany's ecstasy - was complete when Gerd Muller made the second leg essentially redundant with his side's third goal.

West Germany 1-1 England (aet)
West Germany win 4-3 on penalties

England remembers Italia 90 largely for a crying Paul Gascoigne, who lost control when he received a booking that would have ruled him out of the final, and the pain of penalties.

As is so often the case, the margin between success and failure proved so small - and it was Chris Waddle who found himself on the wrong side of the divide.

Waddle almost won the match when he hit the bar in extra-time but he was, instead, destined for heartbreak come the penalty shoot-out when he blazed over to hand West Germany victory, after Stuart Pearce had also missed his spot-kick.

In normal time, Andreas Brehme opened the scoring for West Germany with a deflected free-kick and Gary Lineker equalised with only 10 minutes left.

England 1-1 Germany (aet)
Germany win 6-5 on penalties

"It's coming home, it's coming home, it's coming.... football's coming home."

It very nearly did but Germany thwarted England once again.

England was in the grip of football fever, with an England flag attached to almost every car and David Baddiel and Frank Skinner topping the music charts with Three Lions.

Alan Shearer headed England into a third minute lead but Stefan Kuntz equalised and in extra-time, Paul Gascoigne was inches away from scoring a golden goal that would have put England in the final.

But once again, penalties were needed to separate the sides - and once again the Germans came out on top with Gareth Southgate the unfortunate Englishman to miss his spot-kick in sudden death, leaving Andreas Moller to win it with his.

England 1-0 Germany

This was a game between two ageing teams - as French sports paper L'Equipe put it "a meeting of the dinosaurs".

And it lived up to its billing as the old rivals played out one of the dullest encounters of the tournament.

Alan Shearer got the only goal of the game and, while the match was never a classic, England's players exuberantly celebrated the end of "34 years of hurt".

Realistically, it was a win that did little to make up for the disappointments of Italia 90 or Euro 96 - and things would get worse for England before they got better.

England 0-1 Germany

The end of an era.

It was goodbye Wembley and goodbye Kevin Keegan as Germany came and spoiled the party in London, in the final match ever to be played at the old stadium.

Fresh from their first victory over Germany in 34 years just a few months previously, Keegan's side should have been full of confidence and ready to give Wembley a suitable send-off.

Instead, a shambolic performance sent boss Keegan packing as he resigned immediately after the match, saying 'I just haven't been quite good enough".

And on the day, neither were England, who fell to a long-range shot from Dietmar Hamann with which David Seaman should probably have done better.

Germany 1-5 England

"No-one would have predicted that result."

Those are the words of England striker Michael Owen, who was probably still pinching himself after scoring a hat-trick to help demolish Germany.

Certainly it looked a case of business as usual when Carsten Jancker put Germany ahead after only six minutes.

But England, now under the guidance of their first foreign manager in Sven-Goran Eriksson, proceeded to stun everyone - and most likely that included their Swedish coach and themselves.

However, it was reward for a stylish performance of heart, skill and clinical finishing, with Steven Gerrard and Emile Heskey joining Owen on the scoresheet.

England win 1-2
Scotland lost 0-1

I watched the England match and I was heavily impressed with almost everyone, except Scott Carson.
Stuart Downing, Wright Phillips, Agbonlahor and Glen Johnson in particular were good.
Carrick and Barry showed their importance in central midfield.
Most of all, all praise for Fabio Capello for 5th consecutive away win. 

I guess Scotland must have played with pride and have a lot of positive tooo.
