Vardy celebrates his first goal for England against Germany.

England can rebuild estranged relationship with fans following Germany victory

Published 1 Comments

Much like every England fan, Wayne Rooney couldn't help but share his delight on social media when the final whistle was blown in Berlin last Saturday.

The Three Lions had just pulled off a memorable comeback to beat world champions Germany in their own back yard, deservedly overcoming their rivals through playing a new and exciting brand of football that fans have long been craving.

A mixture of youth, technical ability and energy was refreshing to see, especially so given fans have become accustomed to dour, uninspiring football and key players consistently failing to replicate domestic form.

It would be a mistake to speculate about England's chances at the Euros this summer, but what's clear is the national side is benefiting from a fresh crop of players not just playing, but starring, in the Premier League.

Harry Kane and Jamie Vardy - the league's top two goalscorers - have played with incredible confidence for Tottenham and Leicester City respectively this campaign and such form transcended onto the field in Berlin, both scoring wonderful goals.

The adventure and fearlessness shown by England's players against Germany will have gone some way to rebuilding the national side's tarnished image following years of disappointment, let alone repay fans for their continued support.

The progress shown by the likes of Dele Alli, Kane and Vardy is something fans will embrace. These are players to have suddenly burst onto the scene having showed a level of desire and enthusiasm that's been missing in recent years.


An England side with a hunger to win is ultimately what fans wish for, but performances like against Germany - not so against the Netherlands - will prove just as important. A combination of the two could breed something quite spectacular.
