England will play Germany in the last-16 of the European Championships at Wembley next Tuesday.
The Germans drew 2-2 with Hungary in Munich on Wednesday night to finish second in Group F, behind France.
Didier Deschamps’ side also drew 2-2 on a thrilling evening, with opponents Portugal going through as one of the best third-place sides.
Germany had looked to be heading out of the tournament as they twice trailed to unfancied Hungary, only for substitute Leon Goretzka to fire home the equaliser to earn Joachim Low’s side the point they needed.
The last-16 clash will be the latest in a long line of tournament clashes between England and Germany, who won on penalties in both the 1990 World Cup and Euro 96.
Former Germany forward Jurgen Klinsmann told the BBC: “Both Germany and England are in a similar situation, position by position. I think it will be a very even battle and it will be about the form of the day.
We saw a different face against Portugal and we saw a different face tonight and England were the same against Scotland and Croatia.
We will see a fascinating game in England v Germany because we do not know what to expect.
France and Portugal’s 2-2 draw featured three penalties, but ultimately ended in the French topping the group.
They will now face Switzerland in Bucharest, with Portugal coming up against Belgium in Seville.
Wales will kickstart the last-16 when they face Denmark in Amsterdam on Saturday evening, a match that will be followed by Italy vs Austria at Wembley.

John Terry leaves Aston Villa, reveals next plan
Aston Villa assistant coach, John Terry, has announced his departure from the club.
Terry, in a statement via Aston Villa’s official website on Monday, also revealed his next plan.
The Chelsea legend had since been linked with vacancies at Bristol City and West Brom United.
Terry’s statement read in part, “It has been a tremendous honour and privilege to have spent these last three years at Aston Villa, but I feel now is the right time to make the extremely difficult decision to move on.
“My immediate plan is to spend some quality time with my family and, thereafter, hopefully, take up some invitations to visit clubs and managers around Europe to develop my aim and objective of becoming a manager.
“I’ll forever be indebted to the gaffer for giving me the opportunity to start my coaching career at such a wonderful club.
“Finally, I would also like to thank all the players and staff and wish them all the very best for the season ahead and say a huge thank you to the wonderful Aston Villa fans for their support.”
Solskjaer opens up on Pogba rejecting new Man United contract to join PSG
Manchester United boss, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has opened up on midfielder, Paul Pogba rejecting a new contract at the club in a bid to join Paris Saint-Germain.
Solskjaer also expressed confidence that Pogba will be part of his Man United squad next season.
He said this while reacting to reports that the France international has rejected a new deal at the club because he wants to join PSG.
Pogba, whose current deal with Man United will expire next summer, has been linked with a move away from Old Trafford to join PSG.
But Solskjaer has now described the report as ‘speculations’.
Asked if Pogba has rejected a contract and whether Man United will need to sell him, Solskjaer told reporters following the Red Devils’ pre-season 4-2 defeat against QPR on Saturday: “There are always speculations about Paul.
“The talks between the club and Paul’s representatives, I am not in the detail of every single one of them, so I have got nothing to say really about that.
Asked further on PSG’s interest in Pogba, Solskjaer continued: “There’s always speculation about Paul and there’s always clubs being interested.
“Of course, we have seen Paul at his best and Paul knows what we feel about it. And of course, I have enjoyed my time working with him and hopefully, we can work together. Let’s see what happens.”
Barcelona to swap Griezmann for four Man City players
BARCELONA are said to be eyeing up a swap deal with Manchester City involving Antoine Griezmann, with reports suggesting they have named four players they would be interested in taking from the Etihad
The Catalans desperately need to reduce their wage bill this summer and have identified Griezmann, who rakes in a staggering £300,000 per week, as one player they could cash in on.
He has only spent two years at the Nou Camp after completing a £100million switch from La Liga rivals Atletico Madrid, racking up 99 appearances and scoring 35 goals in that time.
And according to Radio Catalunya, Barca are now trying to use the Frenchman as bait in a potential swap deal with City.
