England are back in Nations League action on Monday night as they host Germany football at Wembley.

While the result won’t change the outcome of Group A3, with the Three Lions already down and relegated after defeat to Italy, there’s a wider factor at play as Gareth Southgate looks to rediscover a winning formula before the 2022 World Cup.

It’s five without victory now for Harry Kane and the gang, leaving the mood around supporters rather more downcast than it was last summer after they reached the final of Euro 2020 - and indeed compared to earlier this summer when the women’s team won Euro 2022.

The likes of Trent Alexander-Arnold and Jack Grealish might be hoping to stake their claim for a starting role, though even a place in the final 26 could be considered still needing to be secured for some.

Here’s everything you need to know ahead of the match.
