Amazing stats from the England game

– Germany hands England its worst-ever World Cup loss and advances to the final eight for the 15th straight World Cup, by far the longest streak in World Cup history (second-longest is Brazil with five).

– This is the first of five England-Germany World Cup meetings that was not tied after 90 minutes.

– Germany is the first team to score four goals in the knockout stage since Denmark defeated Nigeria 4-1 in the 1998 round of 16.

– In the 32nd minute, Lukas Podolski scored his second goal of this World Cup after scoring only two goals in 27 league games with Cologne. It’s his fifth career World Cup goal.

– Thomas Mueller became the second-youngest player since 17-year-old Pele to score at least two goals in a knockout stage game of the World Cup. Mueller is the first German under 21 to do it since Franz Beckenbauer in 1966.

– Germany goalie Manuel Neuer’s assist on the Miroslav Klose goal was only the second assist by a goalkeeper in the World Cup since 1966.

– Miroslav Klose has scored 12 World Cup goals in his career. He is tied with Pele and is only 3 behind the record of 15 set by Ronaldo of Brazil.
