Regional press titles celebrate historic England win over Germany

Regional press titles have celebrated a historic victory for England’s national football team.

England last night overcame a 55-year hoodoo to beat Germany in a knockout competition for the first time since the 1966 World Cup final.

Their 2-0 win means the team will now face a quarter-final against Ukraine in Rome on Saturday night as the delayed Euro 2020 tournament progresses.

The Western Daily Press was among the titles to splash on the win this morning, with goalscorer Raheem Sterling pictured on its front page.

Portsmouth daily The News highlighted the ‘Europhoric’ scenes from one pub on its patch.
