Andreas Moeller, who scored the winning penalty kick against England in the semi-finals of Euro 96, says Germany will beat England on Tuesday in their Euro 2020 last 16 clash.

“It will again go to penalty kicks. And, we will win again,” the 53-year-old said on Monday.

Moeller scored the sudden death shoot-out winner after current England coach Gareth Southgate had his effort saved by current Germany goalkeeping coach Andreas Koepke.

Germany went on to lift the trophy in 1996 and Moeller’s then-teammate, Markus Babbel, also thinks history will repeat itself.

Babbel said: “My bet is 1-1 after extra-time, and then we triumph on penalty kicks.”

Tuesday’s game is again at Wembley, although the stadium has been completely rebuilt since.

The last game at the old Wembley in 2000 saw Germany beat England 1-0 in their last competitive visit to London in a World Cup qualifier.
