England have painful memories of facing Germany at major tournaments, with their manager Gareth Southgate suffering penalty heartache against them at Euro ‘96.
The Three Lions were also knocked out by Germany at the 2010 World Cup in South Africa after losing 4-1 at the last-16 stage.
Many of the current squad, however, were not even born when England lost to Germany at Euro ‘96 - and Calvert-Lewin believes they are not burdened by past failures.
The Everton striker insists the squad are instead determined to create their own history by beating Germany next week when the two sides meet at Wembley.
“I suppose so, that’s more in my memory that one,” said Calvert-Lewin, when asked about England’s defeat to Germany at the 2010 World Cup.
“But for me, I guess it is kind of not as personal as someone of your age.
“For me, I am just looking forward to the test and looking forward to writing our own history.”
Germany’s form coming into the tournament has been mixed, while they also struggled during the group stages.
Low’s side managed to qualify for the knockout stages after snatching a late draw against Hungary and England go into Tuesday’s game as favourites.
Calvert-Lewin, however, is adamant there is no complacency among the squad and they will not underestimate Germany.
“I think we as a group are definitely not underestimating the challenge that we’ve got and the quality that they have,” he added.
“It is like any game we have gone into prior to this tournament and, coming into it, we do are due diligence and work on how we can counteract they way that they play.”
