The majority of the current squad are not old enough – or not even born – when the two countries met in the semi-final of Euro 96.
Current Three Lions boss Gareth Southgate memorably missed a penalty as Germany won at Wembley en route to lifting the trophy 25 years ago.
Now he will be aiming to mastermind a victory over the same opponents to take England into the quarter-finals.
"There was nothing to be said afterwards internally. I was disappointed to miss but I was more disappointed for Dom as well, he could've had another goal for England.
"But it was a thing that was probably blown out of proportion a little bit. No need to dwell on that and speak about it afterwards.
"In terms of penalties going forward, we practice penalties here all the time, especially in tournaments.
"The gaffer depending on who's playing and who finishes the game and things like that the gaffer will decide his penalty takers on the night. It's not really down to me but I'll always take one."
