Deutschland England 1 5 Gesamtstatistik VideoENGLAND VS GERMANY 5 - 1 FRIENDLY MATCH 2001 OWEN HESKEYIt was the night England won in Munich and Sportsmail has been talking to some of those involved, including David Beckham. Beckham's joy is summed up by this memory. 'Beating the Germans in. Just as there was no doubt this was England's finest hour for over a decade - winning in Munich surely ranks above beating Holland at Wembley in - it was certainly Germany's darkest. The defeat of Germany has set an enormous number of records straight and a new generation of players and fans are moving on - unburdened by the weight of history and believing that England are good enough to play and beat anyone, anywhere. Victory against Albania in the next qualifying game is a must. Die deutsche Fußball-Nationalmannschaft der Frauen hat England in einem Freundschaftsspiel mit besiegt. Dabei erzielte die neue. I cried myself to sleep in when my hero Stuart Pearce missed and my favourite England team of all lost in the semis, I had my heart broken again six years later when another shootout did for Psycho and the boys at Euro 96, and I celebrated with ecstasy as England thumped Germany in Munich nine years ago. I know you don’t expect me to.
The last time that England had beaten Germany had been during the Euro competition in June , with a 1—0 win at the Stade du Pays de Charleroi in Belgium.
Revenge came just four years later, in the quarter-final of the World Cup in Mexico when the English side forfeited a 2—0 lead, losing 3—2 after extra time.
In Euro , Germany again defeated England in a semi-final on penalties. Germany was then beaten by England in the same tournament four years later , a goal by courtesy of Alan Shearer.
In the last match at Wembley before it was closed for redevelopment in October , Germany won 1—0, causing England's manager Kevin Keegan to resign. Germany were the clear group leaders in the qualifying tournament before the game.
With only the group winners advancing directly to the World Cup , the qualifying group table was:. A German victory would have confirmed their qualification and seen England competing with Greece and Finland for a place in the play-offs.
A draw would have resulted in Germany requiring just another draw from their final game, and England requiring two victories, a German loss and an improvement in their goal difference.
Germany had lost just one of their previous sixty qualification games, in qualification for the World Cup , and had been unbeaten at the Munich Olympic stadium since Indeed, the German Football Association were so confident that Germany would finish at the top of the qualifying table that they had arranged friendlies on the dates of the play-offs.
England named four strikers in their squad, with Robbie Fowler and Andy Cole having started the recent friendly with the Netherlands. The match was an evening game, and began nervously, with both teams attempting to maintain possession.
However, after just six minutes, Germany scored when Oliver Neuville headed down a lofted pass into England's penalty area, and Carsten Jancker tapped the ball past the England goalkeeper David Seaman.
The lead did not last long, and after Michael Owen was fouled outside the German penalty area in the 12th minute, England were given a free kick.
England's captain David Beckham took the kick, which neither the attacking nor defending players managed to touch.
However, Gary Neville headed the ball back into the penalty area, where Nick Barmby headed it down to Owen, who volleyed the ball past Oliver Kahn.
Both teams then had chances during the rest of the first half, notably Sebastian Deisler for Germany; Seaman and Kahn both made some good saves.
Just before the half-time, England won another free kick on the edge of the German penalty area, which was again taken by Beckham.
Though he failed to beat the German wall, he crossed the ball back into the penalty area. Rio Ferdinand headed it back to Steven Gerrard , who shot the ball into the bottom-left corner of the goal from 25 yards out, putting England 2—1 up.
Three minutes after the kick-off, a cross from Beckham found Emile Heskey , who headed the ball down to Owen, who was unmarked. Owen hit the ball into right-hand corner of the net.
Kahn managed to get a hand to the ball, but was unable to stop England claiming a 3—1 lead. Although Germany were able to create further chances, it was England who struck again in the 65th minute.
Gerrard's successful tackle gave him possession, and he played a through ball to Owen, who sprinted into the box and fired the ball over Kahn's head to give England a 4—1 lead.
England began to defend their heavy lead. However, in the 73rd minute, they extended it further following a counter-attack. Ferdinand won the ball in defence and gave it to Paul Scholes , who progressed up the pitch through a one-two passing move with Beckham.
Scholes passed the ball to Heskey, who ran past the German defender Marko Rehmer and hit the ball low past Kahn to make it 5—1.
The final twenty minutes were quiet, with Germany beaten and England not needing to create any more chances.
Some German fans left the game early in disgust, whilst the English fans celebrated their biggest victory since a 6—0 win over Luxembourg in It was England's biggest away win since , when they had beaten San Marino 7—1.
It was the first time that Germany had conceded five goals or more since West Germany's 6—3 defeat by France in , and only the third time in their history that they had lost by four goals or more.
Germany went on to lose 5—1 again, against Romania , in English language learning and teaching is an important economic activity , and includes language schooling , tourism spending, and publishing.

As well as English, England has two other indigenous languages , Cornish and Welsh. Cornish died out as a community language in the 18th century but is being revived,   and is now protected under the European Charter for Regional or Minority Languages.
When the modern border between Wales and England was established by the Laws in Wales Acts and , many Welsh-speaking communities found themselves on the English side of the border.
Welsh was spoken in Archenfield in Herefordshire into the nineteenth century,  and by natives of parts of western Shropshire until the middle of the twentieth century if not later.
State schools teach students a second language or third language from the ages of seven, usually French, German, Spanish, Latin, Greek.

In the aftermath of the Renaissance a form of architecture echoing classical antiquity synthesised with Christianity appeared, the English Baroque style of architect Christopher Wren being particularly championed.
Georgian architecture followed in a more refined style, evoking a simple Palladian form; the Royal Crescent at Bath is one of the best examples of this.

Landscape gardening as developed by Capability Brown set an international trend for the English garden. Gardening, visiting gardens, and a love for gardens are regarded as typically English pursuits.
The English garden presented an idealized view of nature. At large country houses, the English garden usually included lakes, sweeps of gently rolling lawns set against groves of trees, and recreations of classical temples, Gothic ruins , bridges, and other picturesque architecture, designed to recreate an idyllic pastoral landscape.
By the end of the 18th century the English garden was being imitated by the French landscape garden , and as far away as St. Petersburg, Russia, in Pavlovsk , the gardens of the future Emperor Paul.

There are some nice exchanges of passes without anything stunning happening. One such decent move for Germany ends with Sami Khedira ballooning a left-foot shot miles over from 25 yards.
Frank Lampard's free-kick thunders into the Germany wall and seconds later Wayne Rooney uncharacteristically gives the ball away.
Klose could have gone down there and Upson would have been sent off, but he bagged his 50th international goal instead.
I don't know what they were doing. Wayne Rooney runs into a little bit of space 30 yards out, but his right-foot shot is wide and wild and the Germans will take that all afternoon.
A furious Fabio Capello is off the bench already, and no wonder. Matthew Upson did not react quickly enough and was then too feeble in his attempts to deal with Miroslav Klose.
Poor, poor goal. That was just a huge punt down the middle of the field by the keeper - what were the two centre-backs doing? Give Klose credit, he didn't give up on the chase but what a terrible goal to give away.
Better from England as they work it down the right and the ball falls for Gareth Barry 30 yards out - he hits a decent left-foot shot, but it's comfortable low down for Manuel Neuer.
From PotentPotables: "I honestly think Rooney should stay up front and wait for service. His constant roaming in midfield has rendered him ineffective.
He just can't do everything by himself. England are having more of the ball, but their shape isn't very good - Wayne Rooney is dropping too deep, and James Milner is wondering over to the left.
They seem to be panicking a little at the moment, but there's no need to, there's plenty of time left in the game.
What a save from David James. Germany attack with gusto and Thomas Mueller plays a pass into the area for Miroslav Klose, but his goalbound right-foot effort is brilliantly blocked by James.
Jermain Defoe heads a Glen Johnson cross against the crossbar, but the Spurs striker is flagged for offside so it wouldn't have counted.
England's defence is an absolute shambles. Germany attack down the right and one clever flick from Miroslav Klose tees up Thomas Mueller.
With England's central defenders nowhere to be seen Mueller plays it over the top to Lukas Podolski and from a tight angle on the left of the six-yard box, he smashes low past David James.
Stunning finish, and England are suitably stunned. James Milner whips in a cross from the England right and from the edge of the six-yard box Frank Lampard's poacher effort is brilliantly kept out by Manuel Meuer's right hand.
Cracking save. Germany are causing a problem every time they attack - this time a corner causes Gareth Barry and Matthew Upson all sorts of problems and Miroslav Klose is only denied by some last-ditch defending after a smart turn.
England are in danger of being embarrassed. Now it's Germany's turn to self-destruct. Steven Gerrard flings a cross over from the England right and with Manuel Neuer all over the place, Matthew Upson rises imperiously to head into the empty net.
This is incredible. You know ? Well apparently, what goes around comes around. Frank Lampard hits a shot from outside the area, it beats Manuel Neuer, bounces off the underside of the bar and bounces about two feet over the line.
It isn't given. It's almost unbelievable. Is your heart pounding? I think mine's about to explode. The England fans are berating the referee - Jorge Larrionda and his linesmen might have a lot to answer for at the end of this game.
England looked dead and buried, and now they are in charge of the game. Capello needs to use what just happened at half-time.
England are buzzing around now, playing some good stuff. They must be fuming about the goal that wasn't given - they all knew it was in.
Uruguayan referee Jorge Larrionda picks the ball up and the boos ring out from the England fans in the crowd. I cannot believe we don't have technology in football still.
The decision was not to use technology at all. But, if England can keep this tempo up, then I can see them getting back into this game.
From Ezi: "England have just been robbed by an inattentive linesman and it is very unfortunate. Was he sleeping or what? Sorry, if a linesman cannot make a call as obvious as that he has no place in a game of this magnitude.
England made Germany look vulnerable in those closing stages, so there is still hope. Germany too fast and too mobile when running at them. By the way, Fifa president Sepp Blatter, the man who is so desperate to stop the introduction of goalline technology, is at the Free State Stadium in Bloemfontein.
Every World Cup has defining games, and we are right in the middle of one of them now. We're back under way in this last clash.
I wonder what Fabio Capello will have said at half-time. I guess, like Sven-Goran Eriksson in , we'll find out in the course of time. England start the second half a little better and Arne Friedrich is booked early on for going through Jermain Defoe.
Steven Gerrard cuts in from the England left, but the Liverpool star drags a right-foot shot wide from 20 yards. England are gently pressing Germany back from midfield.
The referee gives Wayne Rooney a soft free-kick - is he trying to even it up a little bit? My word. Frank Lampard really gets hold of a free-kick from 30 yards and Manuel Neuer almost seems to leave it - he is a very relieved man to see the ball crash back into play off his crossbar.
Germany build up patiently down their right and Sami Khedira's slide rule pass is only a fraction too strong for Thomas Mueller.
The way England are defending, they might have to score a couple more just to take it to extra-time. Germany captain Philipp Lahm tries to pass back to the keeper and suddenly it seems like Jermain Defoe is in - but Manuel Neuer does really well to race off his line and thwart the danger.
Moments later, Steven Gerrard shoots wide from range again. Our friends at Infostrada Sports tell us that Germany have played 30 previous World Cup matches in which they took a lead.
They have won 29 of them and lost one: in the last 16 round in against Switzerland That is 72 years ago. England's defence parts like the red sea once more as Thomas Mueller fools John Terry and runs towards the edge of the box, but his toe-poked right-foot shot drifts wide of David James's left-hand post.
England play it nicely from left to right and Wayne Rooney tees up James Milner inside the area - his right-foot strike is blocked bravely by Jerome Boateng, who is hoping to join his brother, Ghana's Kevin-Prince, in the last eight.
Jermain Defoe is brilliantly tackled by Arne Friedrich on the edge of the Germany area, before Bastian Schweinsteiger slams a right-foot shot goalwards from 30 yards that whistles wide of the England goal.
From D-Gooner: "The game has finally lived up to expectations - what a game it has been so far! That's an absolute disaster for England.
A Frank Lampard free-kick from 25 yards is blocked and Gareth Barry loses the ball - from then on, it's about Germany breaking with pace.
They get forward quickly, Bastian Schweinsteiger plays a perfect pass for Thomas Mueller and inside the area, on the right, he fairly smashes it off the body of David James and into the net.
John Terry's had a nightmare today - he mis-kicks a clearance on the edge of his own area and Thomas Mueller slices wide with his right foot.
Joe Cole crosses from the England right, the cross is blocked, and then it's all about Germany's pace again. Gareth Barry is one-on-one with Mesut Ozil and frankly it's no contest, Ozil races past him, glides effortlessly into the area and taps a cross along the six-yard box for Thomas Mueller to whack in.
It's like taking candy from a baby. Chris, Somerset: "I sincerely hope we don't focus on the Lampard "goal" and instead look at the absolute disgrace this England team has been, embarassment.
So, England need three goals in the last 14 minutes plus stoppage time to force extra-time against Germany. The Germans are just keeping the ball now, England's ridiculously-titled 'Golden Generation' have gone.
True, England are chasing the game but the manner in which Germany have been too quick, too mobile and too intelligent is a chastening lesson for Fabio Capello to take away from this World Cup.
You know, man for man, no-one will never, ever convince me that this Germany team has this much more ability in it than the England one.
It's hard to fathom why. John Terry and Matthew Upson have been so poor today that Mario Gomez takes them both on, the German sub lashing his right-foot shot over the bar from an angle on the right.
Defining game of the tournament? Defining game of some of these England players' international careers? England move it nicely and Steven Gerrard curls towards the far corner from 16 yards, only for Manuel Neuer to pull off a magnificent one-handed fingertip save.
Mesut Ozil gets a well-deserved rest for the last few minutes as he comes off and is replaced by Stefan Kiessling. From paulie: "England with old fashioned rigid , Germany with the modern, fluid Capello, England are living in the past.
If you're English, this hurts an awful lot. They haven't just been beaten by Germany, they have been comprehensively outplayed.
We are doing nothing more than going through the motions in Bloemfontein. They play as a collection of individuals, not a team. From Iain: "Can someone just confirm that these England players are paid tens of thousands a week?
Worst England performance ever. We're into injury time, and this really is adding insult to injury if you are an England fan. Just the two minutes, thankfully.
Eins, zwei, drei your eyes, that's that at the Free State Stadium. I know it hurts, but this is not an England team anyone should be crying over.
Congratulations to Germany, they were magnificent. Steven Gerrard is down on his knees, but there aren't any tears from the England players.
Fabio Capello walks on to the pitch and then stands still, hands in pockets, looking like a man who has just been mugged.
Frank Lampard chats away with Bastian Schweinsteiger. There were 20 minutes when England competed but Germany were the better team technically and tactically.
Regardless of no technology, that mistake should never happen, worst mistake ever. Germany made England look like a very, very, very poor side.
I don't understand why in this time of so much technology, we are still talking about this. I think we played well at , it should be , but then I was disappointed by the mistakes and they counter-attacked well.
Germany is a big team and they played well - we made mistakes, but the referee made a bigger one. This is football. The bottom line is they are lucky it was only four.
We haven't got one. The back four can't control the ball, can't pass, we lack so many ideas it's frustrating. So, I hear only the odd German ask, what's up for us next?
England's isn't. Frank's 'goal' was a terrible decision, but we still had the momentum at half-time - over the whole game, you'd have to say, they were much, much better than us, a way better team.
I can't believe we've seen some of the best players in the world, performing on the biggest stage of the world, not performing at all.
The Premier League is miles an hour, we can only play one way and it's poor. You can't win international trophies playing at miles an hour.
England's supporters are off to drown their sorrows after watching their team handed a painful lesson. We may never hear the last of Frank Lampard's "goal" that was shamefully missed by the officials, but England must not kid themselves or let one moment disguise their failings because they were cut up in embarrassing fashion by Germany at times.
I will only pick players in form, who are fit and play regularly, he said. As soon as the squad was announced, England had no hope.
We had some luck and took the lead. After we went up, we improved and the match was soon over after that. At stages in the game we were on top of them - at down, I thought we'd go and win it , but at it's game over.
World Cup-wise, it's probably over for a few of us. From Andy: "I thought the English players were big match performers. They had four games and didn't turn up.
We seriously need to look at the system yet again. That, I'm reliably informed, is England's biggest defeat at a major championship - World Cup and Euros.Am 1.

I cried myself to sleep in when my hero Stuart Pearce missed and my favourite England team of all lost in the semis, I had my heart broken again six years later when another shootout did for Psycho and the boys at Euro 96, and I celebrated with ecstasy as England thumped Germany in Munich nine years ago.
