Sheer class of Shearer
Sunday 30 June 1996
2nd min: Ince's volley forces Kopke to concede corner. Shearer pulls out to penalty spot then loops a run into space at near-post, and is rewarded when Adams's flick-on allows him to head home. (Germany tighten marking and force their way back into the game. Kuntz equalises.)
17: Shearer drifts wide on right, finds space. Gets to byline and crosses. Ball cleared.
31: Wins header in box, forcing corner.
38: Challenge on Kopke rattles the German goalkeeper.
42: Shearer makes "knock it into the corner" gesture to his midfield.
43: Anderton crosses from right, Shearer soars and angles his body to meet the ball full-on but his header bounces just wide with Kopke beaten.
44: Shearer wins ball, tackling back.
49: Babbel much tighter on Shearer at start of second half. Shearer pulls wide to both wings to find space for himself and team-mates.
57: Shearer challenges German back-four, forcing them to pass too early.
58: Out-jumps Babbel in penalty area but knock-down is cleared.
60: Wins ball from Seaman's kick, fends off Babbel, sets up Anderton for right-wing cross - too close to Kopke. Then does same for McManaman.

90: Lays ball off with chest for Platt, whose shot is deflected for corner.
Extra time, 2nd min: Shearer drifts out to left, taking Babbel with him, creating space for midfielders. McManaman crosses; Anderton hits post.
5: Still on left, Shearer forces throw-in. Wins header from throw, then heads across German box, but no England player is running in. (Germans force save from Seaman, and Kuntz's header is disallowed.)
9: Pulls away from Babbel on right of area. Sheringham finds him; Shearer volleys across face of German goal with Gazza just failing to get a touch.
11: Runs wide on right, caught just offside from Gazza's through ball.
