Euro 2020: Rio Ferdinand confident England can overcome Germany

Rio Ferdinand admits the sacrifices he was forced to make during his Manchester United career meant he couldn’t be there for his children “75 per cent of the time”.

Manchester United legend, Rio Ferdinand, believes England can defeat Germany at Euro 2020.

The two historic rivals take on each other at Wembley on Tuesday in the round of 16.

Germany finished second in their group, rescuing a late point against Hungary in their final group game.

England topped their group, defeating Czech Republic and Croatia along the way.

“I think we’re just happy for two really good games of football that we saw today,” Ferdinand said in the BBC Sport studio.

“Knockout football awaits and England now can really focus.

“Listen, we had an eye on the other game as well and after watching that game, I’m quite confident of a good result for England.

“I know we’re getting excited, that’s what we do as England fans.”
