Germany captain Manuel Neuer has shared his thoughts on tonight's Euro 2020 last-16 clash with England at Wembley in London.

Speaking at a press conference on Monday evening, the experienced Bayern München goalkeeper told reporters:

"It's a footballing classic. We are highly motivated and it's nice to be going into what feels like a final after starting with a final against France.

"England have defended really well so far and given their opponents nothing, but they have only scored two goals themselves. We need to be solid at the back. We have also scored a lot of goals – that speaks volumes for our quality and our flexibility.

"We were getting a lot of added energy from the bench as well. It could be a game of patience tomorrow, if we set up well. England can counter, they have fast players who we don’t want running at us in one-on-ones."

The game will kick off tonight at 18:00 CET.
