Steven Gerrard v Germany
Germany 1 England 5
World Cup qualifier, Munich, 2001
England's 5-1 victory over Germany is widely considered their finest victory ever and was graced by a great goal from Gerrard.
Steve McManaman, who at the time played for Real Madrid, came on as a substitute that evening. He said:
"Every time we went forward in the second half we looked like we were going to score. Bagging five against Germany made everyone sit up and notice us."
Franz Beckenbauer couldn't believe what he had just witnessed. After the game, he said: "I had never seen an England team playing better football. They had pace, aggression, movement and skill. It was fantasy football."
