Man Utd defender Ferdinand: Remember - Germany 1 England 5

Manchester United defender Rio Ferdinand is confident England can knock off Germany on Sunday.

England's crocked skipper says he always gets inspired just by looking at a photograph of Deutschland 1 England 5.

That was the unforgettable scoreline when our boys crushed the Germans in Munich back in 2001.

Ferdinand said: "I know we can do it on Sunday. When I think of Germany, the 5-1 win in the Olympic Stadium always springs to my mind.

"I love that photo of the scoreboard. I have a copy at home.

"It was a brilliant moment. Such things stay with you for ever."
