England and Germany Masters, Battle of Europe


They may be battling it out on the National Stadium pitch for Battle of Europe 2016 come Saturday, but today, football legends from England and Germany were all smiles at the pre-match press conference with Masters Football Asia.


With the panel sharing light banter on the 50th anniversary of England’s triumph over Germany, the England Masters are no doubt keen to repeat history this Saturday. They do face a tough challenge in the Germany Masters, who have won 14 out of the 30 times they have met each other on the field.


“It’s nice to see so many of the England team mates here as we don’t get the chance to see each other as often anymore! There is a huge fan base in Singapore; people are very friendly and welcome us with open arms,” shared Teddy Sheringham, who is looking forward to linking up with former Manchester United team mate, Paul Scholes, as they represent the England Masters this Saturday.


“When it comes to a game against England, it’s always a motivation for all the German players to win because England is a big footballing nation. It’ll be one of the best games of the season for every German. We are still on fire!” Said Karl-Heinz Riedle. The 1990 World Cup winner will be playing for the Germany Masters this Saturday.


Steve Black, CEO of Masters Football Asia, commented, “Two months ago, I was here officially launching the Battle Of Europe, and here we are today looking ahead to the match. The England-Germany football rivalry is one that captures the imagination of many, and I myself have many memories of the matches between the two teams. Football is in the DNA of the people here, and we would not be here without the tremendous support of the community.”


The players will meet on Saturday at the highly-anticipated Battle of Europe 2016 presented by Masters Football Asia.
