England beats Germany to reach quarterfinals

LONDON (AP) — England is unburdened by the weight of agonizing history: Germany has finally been beaten in a tournament again.

No need to endure more penalty heartache or disallowed goals this time.

Just like in the 1966 World Cup final, England triumphed over a German team at Wembley Stadium on Tuesday, winning 2-0 to reach the European Championship quarterfinals.

Raheem Sterling and Harry Kane scored for England.

It was England’s econd-ever win in the knockout stage of the European Championship.

England will face Ukraine in the quarterfinals Saturday.

Ukraine 2, Sweden 1

GLASGOW, Scotland — Ukraine had reached the round of 16 at the European Championship with two losses and the worst record of the advancing teams.

And now the quarterfinals, too.

Ukraine eliminated previously unbeaten Sweden 2-1 on Tuesday with a goal in stoppage time at the end of extra time from a player who was left on the bench for the entire group stage.

Substitute Artem Dovbyk stooped low to guide a header from Oleksandr Zinchenko’s cross past goalkeeper Robin Olsen.
