Despite his feat, the 22-year-old was surprisingly left out of the squad for Russian Federation and the Germans departed the group stages after losing to Mexico and South Korea either side of a late victory over Sweden.

Whereas, England will need to overcome Colombia, Switzerland and Croatia before Harry Kane gets the famous trophy in his hands.

Wins over Australia and Peru were functional rather than fluid, whereas the 0-0 draw between Les Bleus and Denmark will be a contender for the worst game of the tournament.

"Our World Cup nightmare has come true", screamed the Bild daily.
