Jurgen Klinsmann Identifies Six England Stars Who Frighten Germany Ahead Of Huge Last-16 Clash

Jurgen Klinsmann has named Manchester City star Raheem Sterling and Tottenham striker Harry Kane among the six England players who will worry Germany.

England will clash with Germany in the last 16 on Tuesday, with 40,000 fans allowed to attend the Euro 2020 match at Wembley.

Sterling, 26, has rewarded Gareth Southgate's faith in him by scoring twice for England in the tournament so far.

While the City winger has bounced back after a dip in form for City, the same can't be said for England captain Kane.

The 27-year-old Spurs star has been widely criticised for his goalscoring form, despite Southgate staunchly defending his inclusion in the England XI.

Klinsmann, 56, insisted that Kane is a "No 9 killer" and is a threat that Germany can't overlook in the round-of-16 match.

Joining Kane and Sterling on Klinsmann's six-man list are Mason Mount, Bukayo Saka, Phil Foden and Harry Maguire.

Speaking to The Athletic, ex-Germany manager Klinsmann said: "You have Raheem Sterling, and you have Mason Mount.

"You have now Saka who played a good game against the Czech Republic. You have Phil Foden, who I really adore - I thought he had a brilliant year with Man City.

"You have Harry Maguire, who kind of frightens everybody when this guy rolls through midfield. He reminds me a bit of Lucio, the Brazilian centre-back - he looks like a Mustang running through everybody.

"And then you have this No 9 killer [Harry Kane] that hasn't started the tournament yet."
