In a night of crazy twists and turns in Group F, Germany's Leon Goretzka bagged a dramatic 84th-minute equaliser to seal a 2-2 draw against Hungary in Munich which sent the Hungarians out.

Whites centre-back Robin Koch is still waiting for his first minutes of the Euros having been an unused substitute for a third game in a row.

Germany were heading out and destined to finish bottom of the group until Goretzka struck to seal the group's runners-up berth and a last 16 clash against an England side featuring Whites midfielder Kalvin Phillips.
