Retro. 15 years ago today. Germany 1-5 England [Highlights]

Germany haven’t lost a single game on home soil during World Cup qualifiers until 2001. On September 1, 2001, Sven-Göran Eriksson’s side broke that incredible run and defeated them 5 goals to 1, despite conceding first.

15 years has past since that day, but that victory remains in history books as one of the best matches of modern football.

Michael Owen scored a hat-trick in that match, while Steven Gerrard and Emile Heskey added their names on the scoreboard, too. Germany’s only goal was scored by Carsten Jancker.
