Joshua Kimmich is excited about Germany's upcoming Euro 2020 last-16 clash with England at Wembley.

"That's just awesome! It doesn't get much better than that. Whether it needed to be in the round of 16, I'm not sure," said the 26-year-old after Wednesday's 2-2 draw with Hungary, which secured a spot in the knockout stages.

"We're definitely buzzing. I just hope that we can finally step up at this tournament now. We still have room for improvement," added Kimmich.

Germany fell behind twice against Hungary, but ended up getting the draw they needed after a nerve-racking match.

"Of course I was worried," admitted Kimmich.

"We struggled a lot. We didn't look comfortable on the pitch, not even when we were in possession."

Kimmich and Germany are set to lock horns with England on Tuesday at 18:00 CET.
