Germany wins fifth straight at Wembley
August 23rd, 2007 7AM

MOST READ

MOST COMMENTED

Germany extended its winning streak in England to five games with a 2-1 friendly victory. The Germans' Wembley victory streak dates back to 1982 and includes a 1-0 win in 2000 that marked England's last game at the "old Wembley." The Germans' win on Wednesday was England's first loss at the new $1.49 billion Wembley stadium. The Los Angeles Galaxy's David Beckham played 90 minutes and earned his 97th cap for England.

Both teams were missing key players, but England's Frank Lampard rifled a 14-yard unstoppable shot past German keeper Jens Lehmann in the ninth minute.

In the 26th minute, England keeper Paul Robinson looked out of position when a Bernd Schneider cross soared just under the crossbar. Robinson pawed it down to gift Kevin Kuranyi a tap-in.

English tabloid The Sun responded with the headline, "What a load of Robbish."

Five minutes before halftime, Germany debutant Christian Pander scored the winner with a 27-yard left-footed rocket. Michael Owen squandered a golden opportunity when he shot wide from close range and Kieron Dyer shot wide after Beckham delivered his only dangerous cross of the day.
