They are often seen at international friendlies and suggests that the match is failing to entertain the fans.

As the wave moved around the stadium towards the 4,000 travelling supporters, it wasn’t clear how they would react.

Would they maintain the Mexican wave? Or would they bring it to an abrupt end?

Watch the video below to found out:

England’s reluctance to support the Mexican wave brought boos to the Olympiastadion with the home fans disappointed that their fun had been spoilt.

But who could blame the travelling 'barmy army'? They had paid good money to travel to watch their country and all they wanted to do was to watch the match and consume a few alcoholic beverages.

Victory in the stand and on the pitch

Of course, it wasn’t just in the stand that England got one over Germany.

The Three Lions fought back from 2-0 down to record a magnificent 3-2 victory in Berlin.

Goals from Toni Kroos and Mario Gomez had put Joachim Loew’s side into, what seemed to be, a comfortable lead.

But a brilliant goal from nothing scored by Harry Kane hauled England back into the match.

The introduction of Jamie Vardy saw the away side gain even more momentum and the Leicester striker scored a magnificent back heel just three minutes after coming on.

Roy Hodgson’s men looked to have missed the opportunity to win it when Dele Alli blazed over with the goal gaping, but his Spurs teammate Eric Dier spared his blushes by powering in a header in injury time to give his country a famous victory.

Following their victory over Germany, do England have a chance of winning Euro 2016? Let us know in the comments box below!
