A superb result in Voeller's first real test as boss. The German squad showed discipline in neutralizing the English attack. Dieter Hamman blasted a direct free kick from about 35 yards into the net to stun the Brits. Most observers felt that this would probably guarantee Germany winning the group and automatically qualify for the 2002 World Cup.
