London [UK], June 29 (ANI): Raheem Sterling and Hary Kane scored a goal each as England reached the quarter-finals of the ongoing Euro Cup after defeating Germany 2-0 on Tuesday.

Kane doubled England's advantage in the dying minutes of play to make sure Germany loses all hopes of staging a comeback. With this, Kane equalled Wayne Rooney's record of seven goals scored at major tournaments for England.
