Beckenbauer has another pop at England

Germany’s victory last night means that they will now play England in a mouthwatering last 16 clash.

“A game like this should be a semi-final, not a last-16 game,” he told the Bild newspaper.

“Stupidly, the English have slipped up a little by finishing second in their group.

“England against Germany – they were always the biggest, most unforgettable games in our history,” Beckenbauer added. “Football fans can only look forward to this classic.”
