So far!
I'm not a football fan, but this is exceptional.
I'm very pleased for all of those who enjoy this type of thing.
I hope that it gives us a bit of a boost.

It’s been a long time coming . Last time was 1966 …

FannyCornforth Tue 29-Jun-21 18:50:16

It's coming home!

GrannyGravy13 Tue 29-Jun-21 18:50:26

I have a 6 yr old GS singing it’s coming home 🎶🎶🎶

NotAGran55 Tue 29-Jun-21 18:51:38

Bloody brilliant 🤩 Well done boys 🥅 ⚽️ .

That's two lots of doubters proved wrong today.
England wins the football and Mark Cavendish wins stage 4 of Le Tour de France.
Things are looking up!

FannyCornforth Tue 29-Jun-21 18:52:27

Ah, GG, that's lovely.
It's bonding the generations.

Hurrah! We've (they've) won!

2 year old GS was allowed to watch his first television, decided to support Germany and had an early bedtime! 😄

He always sleeps over on a Tuesday, really into football (golf, horse riding, Marshall arts, basically any sport) I am so pleased for the team and obviously my bouncing boy

Well done England. Two very impressive goals indeed.

They have beat Germany since 1966
When did England last beat Germany? Head-to-head record ...

England's most recent victory over Germany came in a friendly in 2016, winning 3-2 in a thrilling match having been 2-0 down, with goals from Harry Kane, Jamie Vardy and a 90th-minute Eric Dier header. Their last competitive win over the Germans came in 2001 when Michael Owen scored a hat-trick in a 5-1 thrashing in World Cup qualifying.
Well done England.

Yes well done and well deserved- but felt so ashamed by the booing of the German national anthem by so many- such a pity.

FannyCornforth Tue 29-Jun-21 19:11:21

Kali yes, it was utterly, utterly shit
I was so ashamed. Pathetic.
I don't know why it isn't stopped.
But the blooming knee thing prevails

NfkDumpling Tue 29-Jun-21 19:11:57

Well, I'll be blowed!

nanaK54 Tue 29-Jun-21 19:12:56

Whoop! Whoop!

Well, I'll be blowed!

I know!
That's exactly how I felt!

Yes, doesn’t reflect well on us.
I went to hang the washing out during the second half and my DH said, “Stay our there! We’ve scored!”😂😂

Well done England!🏴󠁧󠁢󠁥󠁮󠁧󠁿
They played really well, although at first I thought it may be a repeat of the boring England/Scotland game where both sides
Walked about passing the ball to each other and very little else.
So this game started out as very defensive but then perked up, with both sides playing well.2-0 though, I didn’t expect that.🤩

NotAGran55 Tue 29-Jun-21 19:15:25

Lin52 they haven’t beaten Germany in an international competition since 1966 - where it matters . Friendly games and qualifying matches aren’t the same .

lemongrove Tue 29-Jun-21 19:15:29

Teenage DGS is beside himself with joy.😃

DanniRae Tue 29-Jun-21 19:21:05

WEll DONE ENGLAND!!!!!!!!!! Onwards and Upwards gringrin
