Manager’s reaction

England boss Gareth Southgate: “The players were immense, right the way through the team. The energy was incredible in the stadium. For those people, after such a difficult year at home, to have that enjoyment we’ve given them today was very special.” Southgate said after England beat Germany. “It didn’t need me to say it but when we got in the dressing room we were talking about Saturday already. Today’s been an immense performance but at a cost emotionally and physically, we need to make sure we recover well.”

Germany boss Joachim Low: “The quality is there but at the knockout stage every mistake can be fatal, decisive. What we lack is a little bit of experience in certain situations, and in all the matches we’ve played, we had certain spells when we weren’t effective or clinical enough.”
