Kick-off between Germany and Romania
Germany and Romania have won all of their knockout matches after scoring the first goal, but lost every game when they conceded the first goal.
Leroy Sané’s resurgence is currently one of the biggest talking points in Germany, having been involved in 14 goals in his last 11 club and international appearances (six goals and eight assists). Nicolae Stanciu scored Romania’s last away goal – he scored his last seven club and international goals from the 50th minute.
