Germany vs England - LIVE!

Harry Kane’s late spot-kick secured Gareth Southgate’s men a hard-fought Nations League draw in Germany as the skipper became the second man to score 50 goals for England.

The Three Lions arrived in Munich looking to replicate last summer’s memorable Euro 2020 victory against Die Mannschaft and bounce back from Saturday’s shock loss to unfancied Hungary.

The second of four Nations League matches in this 11-day slog also looked set to end in defeat after Jonas Hofmann struck for Germany, who are unbeaten since that last-16 defeat at Wembley.

However, Kane found time to win a penalty and then step up to dispatch it and earn a 1-1 draw for England.

Molineux matches against Euro 2020 final foes Italy and Hungary follow in the next week after a night that ended on a high, two of just four matches England have before the World Cup gets underway later this year.

Kane gets England back on track

22:32 , Matt Verri

If Harry Kane was going to pick a moment to score his 50th England goal, then you suspect tonight would have been near the top of his list.

For around 80 minutes or so it looked like England were on their way to back-to-back defeats, with Jonas Hofmann putting Germany ahead after a slick move in the 50th minute.

It was no more than they deserved on the balance of play and in truth Hansi Flick will be disappointed his side didn’t win this game.

But when you have Kane leading the line for you then you are always in the game, just ask Tottenham.

England player ratings

22:12 , Matt Verri

Bukayo Saka - 5

Virtually anonymous for 45 minutes, then came alive with two decent efforts in first-half stoppage time. Poor again after the break.

Raheem Sterling - 6

Won his 75th cap and tried to take game to Germany but was relatively quiet on return from illness until Grealish arrival prompted a shift inside and some smart link-up.

Jack Grealish (Mason Mount 73’) - 7

Introduction immediately sparked England’s best spell of second half. Laid on two terrific chances for Kane and will surely start against Italy.

Harry Kane’s post-match thoughts

22:05 , Matt Verri

“It’s a really nice feeling . I had a couple of early chances and thought it could be one of those days .

“We kept going, and played our best football in the last half hour. It’s good to get the goal and it’s just a shame we didn’t nick it in the end.

“I love scoring goals, especially for my country. It’s good to bounce back and now we’ve got two games at home.

“Even going 1-0 behind, it showed good character away against a very good side. The World Cup’s going to be here before we know it, so we have to keep doing well.”

21:58 , Matt Verri

Harry Kane now into second place on his own, in the all-time goalscoring list for England.

He was level with Sir Bobby Charlon on 49, but he’s now just the second ever play to reach the half century mark for the Three Lions.

Just Wayne Rooney to go for Kane now - he holds the record on 53 goals. Might not hold it for long!

21:53 , Matt Verri

England still sit bottom of their Nations League group, after two matches.

They’ll be looking to change that over the next week though - home matches against Italy and Hungary to come at Molineux.

FT: Germany 1-1 England

21:44 , Matt Verri

It finishes level in Munich as Kane gets England out of trouble late on.

The England captain won the penalty, scored the penalty and earned a point for his side. That’s now 50 England goals for Kane.

Four games to go until the World Cup!

21:42 , Matt Verri

90+2 mins: Bellingham down demanding the ball is kicked out. Germany couldn’t care less and Bellingham eventually gets up.

Frantic conclusion to this match!

21:40 , Matt Verri

90 mins: Grealish cuts it back, Kane free in the box but he swings at thin air. Big chance!

Four minutes added on and England are on the charge.

Simon Collings at the Allianz Arena

21:38 , Matt Verri

50 England goals for Harry Kane. Not a bad time for him to hit that target.

GOAL! Germany 1-1 England | Harry Kane 88'

21:37 , Matt Verri

Schlotterbeck with the foul and Kane has a chance to get England level in Munich.

Kane steps up... AND SCORES! Was there ever any doubt? Drills it low into the bottom corner, sends Neuer the wrong way and that’s 50 international goals for Kane.

PENALTY ENGLAND!

21:35 , Matt Verri

86 mins: Germany fly down the other end of the pitch, Sane has the freedom of the left wing to himself. Walker gets across brilliantly to slam the door shut.

Referee over to the pitchside monitor. Having a look at that Kane penalty appeal... England could have a way back into this.

AND THEY DO! Penalty England!

21:34 , Matt Verri

84 mins: SO CLOSE!

Not happening for England. Bowen skips past his man on the right, plays it across goal and it’s just about turned behind for a corner.

Kane now down in the box screaming for a penalty - nothing given!

21:31 , Matt Verri

81 mins: Tripper over to the far corner yet again, can England finally make something from one of these corners?

No. Sterling blazes an effort over the bar from the edge of the box. James looked set to come on for England but it appears he’s sat down again now.

21:29 , Matt Verri

79 mins: Rice clears the ball up the pitch, Sterling with a shove and that will be a free-kick. Not even this referee will let that go.

Saka coming off for England, Bowen on to replace him.

21:26 , Matt Verri

76 mins: INCREDIBLE SAVE!

How are England not level! Grealish plays a brilliant ball across the face of goal, Kane looks certain to score at the back post but Neuer has somehow kept it out and turned it behind for a corner.

Massive moment in this match.

21:25 , Matt Verri

75 mins: Germany on the counter, they’re getting more and more space as England come forward.

Havertz slides it through to Chelsea teammate Werner, who is denied by Pickford charging off his line.

Another change from Germany - Goretzka on to replace Muller.

21:23 , Matt Verri

74 mins: Well Grealish is already having an impact. Into the box, Kane and Sterling both want a low cross towards the back post but Klostermann cuts it out. Corner.

Trippier swings it in deep, Maguire loops the header back at goal. Combination of Neuer and Klostermann gets it away.

21:22 , Matt Verri

72 mins: Change for England, who badly need some inspiration from somewhere. Mount off, Grealish on.

The Man City man has his first touch, plays it inside to Rice but he can’t control in the box and Germany clear.

Simon Collings at the Allianz Arena

21:21 , Matt Verri

Germany aren’t content with a one-goal lead here. They can smell blood and the chance to kill England off. Flick isn’t letting them take their foot off the gas.

21:20 , Matt Verri

70 mins: Muller into the box, Gundogan free but ignores him. Lifted into the back post and it’s headed out.

Comes to Raum, incredible amount of space on the left. Brilliant cross, Muller volleys it at goal and Pickford makes a superb save at his near post.

21:17 , Matt Verri

67 mins: Brilliant defending to halt Gundogan’s run on the edge of the box, just as he was looking to get a shot away. Unfortunately it was from the referee, who got his body completely in the way.

He drops the ball down for Kimmich - or at least that was the plan. Bellingham boots the ball away instead. Take two and we’re back underway.

21:15 , Matt Verri

65 mins: Pickford kicks it straight out of play, he’s had a poor night on the whole.

Hofmann and Musiala off for Germany, they’ve both been superb. Werner and Gnabry the two on to replace them.

21:12 , Matt Verri

62 mins: England win the ball back, Mount looks to send Sterling away on the break but it’s a poor pass.

Bellingham gets England back on the attack though high up the pitch, Sterling drags it badly across the face of goal.

21:09 , Matt Verri

59 mins: Referee has given a free-kick! That’s been a real rarity tonight. Muller clips Saka’s heels and it’s a great position for England - maybe just slightly wider than they’d like.

Half the team standing over it, Kane standing with his back to goal two yards in front of it. It’s rolled to him, he spins and strikes at goal. Straight into the wall.

Back to the training ground boys.

21:05 , Matt Verri

56 mins: Mount wins a corner for his side, England stepping things up in Munich.

Cleared away though and Germany break quickly - Bellingham has to slide in well to stop the counter turning into something serious.

21:03 , Matt Verri

54 mins: England win the ball back and Mount has space to drive into.

Has Sterling up with him but goes for goal from distance himself. Comfortable enough save for Neuer.

Simon Collings at the Allianz Arena

21:02 , Matt Verri

The sort of goal you’d see Bayern score countless times under Flick. Lovely slick passing and England are opened up. Tall order for them now.

GOAL! Germany 1-0 England | Jonas Hofmann 50'

21:01 , Matt Verri

HOFMANN GETS HIS GOAL!

Denied in the first-half, scores in the second! Perfect start to the half for Germany.

Havertz lays it back to Kimmich, he fizzes it in first-time to Hofmann and he fires the shot past Pickford. Goalkeeper should probably have done better, had too much pace though.

20:59 , Matt Verri

49 mins: Players don’t seem to have clocked that the referee is waving away any soft appeals for a free-kick. Havertz goes down and looks up hopefully, referee has already jogged away.

Chance was there for Musiala to play Havertz in, pass was just about cut out though.

20:57 , Matt Verri

47 mins: Kane drifts past a couple of challenges and plays the pass inside to Walker.

He’s all of 35 yards out, plenty of bodies in his way but decides to go for goal anyway. Musiala blocks immediately. We’ll be generous and say ‘optimistic effort’.

Back underway!

20:55 , Matt Verri

Up and running again in Munich.

20:51 , Matt Verri

59% possession for Germany in the opening 45 minutes. Felt like more than that, but England finished the half well.

Three shots on target for Germany, two for the visitors. Stats are all relatively even.

Hofmann denied

20:46 , Matt Verri

Simon Collings at the Allianz Arena

20:42 , Matt Verri

Half-time and Germany probably had the better of the game and look slick when going forward, particularly when Musiala gets it. England not created loads bar great chance for Kane from corner.

Improved towards end of half when Saka and Sterling involved more.

HT: Germany 0-0 England

20:39 , Matt Verri

Germany not far away from breaking the deadlock as they counter, but Maguire heads away the cross and that will be the final action of the half.

Goalless after 45 minutes but it’s been an entertaining watch.

Hofmann’s disallowed strike the closest either side have come to the opening goal.

20:38 , Matt Verri

45+7 mins: Germany have got through that slightly shaky spell and are back to dominating the ball.

Looks like we’re going to be heading into the break without a goal.

20:34 , Matt Verri

45+4 mins: England having their best spell in a long time, finally enjoying some sustained possession.

Sterling drives forward, looks to cut inside Rudiger but the defender slides in and wins the ball back.

Comes back to Saka, tries his luck from miles out and it has Neuer really worried... just wide of the far post. Brilliant effort!

20:32 , Matt Verri

45+2 mins: Great run from Saka, onto his right foot and fires the effort at goal. Neuer turns it behind.

Flicked on at the near post by an England head and it’s all the way out for a throw-in on the opposite wing.

20:31 , Matt Verri

45 mins: The one-way traffic continues. Kimmich clips a free-kick into the box, Germany win the first header and Kane clears it out to the edge of the box. Musiala drills it back at goal, straight at Pickford.

Just the EIGHT minutes added on!

20:29 , Matt Verri

43 mins: Possession stats for the last ten minutes must be pretty much entirely in Germany’s favour.

Pace of the match has slowed down since that Trippier injury and the hosts have taken control, though they haven’t created a huge amount with it.

Simon Collings at the Allianz Arena

20:26 , Matt Verri

What a player Musiala is. Has whole stadium on their feet whenever he gets the ball. No wonder Southgate and England were gutted to lose him.

20:25 , Matt Verri

40 mins: Musiala bundles his way through three challenges before Rice gets across to stop his progress.

England struggling to get out, starting to be increasingly pinned back by Germany.

20:23 , Matt Verri

37 mins: Really good defending from Trippier, Germany well on top at the moment.

Musiala with a lovely pass in behind the England defence, Raum stands up a ball to the back post and Havertz is running onto it. Trippier does enough to put him off and concede the corner, which the visitors clear.

20:21 , Matt Verri

35 mins: A rare lull in the match, after those stoppages.

Germany knocking the ball around comfortably, England happy to sit back in their shape. Hosts get in behind through Hofmann who has made a great run, he can’t get the pull back right though and it’s straight out of play.

20:19 , Matt Verri

33 mins: We’re back underway, but seconds later Sterling is down and the ball gets kicked out. He collided with Kimmich and isn’t moving well at all, but he’ll be carrying on for now.

England having a painful time of it in Munich!

20:16 , Matt Verri

31 mins: More injury worries. Ball clipped forward by Germany, Trippier heads it out of play but he lands awkwardly on Hofmann’s left ankle. Both players down receiving treatment.

Looks like they’ll be fine to continue.

20:14 , Matt Verri

28 mins: End-to-end again! England win it high up the pitch, Kane has plenty of numbers forward as he plays a low ball across the face of goal but Sterling can’t make up the ground at the back post.

Germany quickly forward themselves and Musiala goes for goal from just outside the area. Blocked.

Simon Collings at the Allianz Arena

20:12 , Matt Verri

That ruled out goal was a let-off for England and a warning for Maguire not to get touch-tight on Havertz.

20:12 , Matt Verri

26 mins: Sterling and Saka have been really quiet so far, but the Man City man has his first chance to run at Klostermann. Wins a corner for the visitors.

Tripper swings it in, Neuer drops it under pressure and Kane blazes over from close range. Massive chance! Goal was empty.

GOOOO..... OFFSIDE!

20:08 , Matt Verri

23 mins: Germany have the ball in the back of the net but it won’t count!

Long ball lumped forward, Maguire and Havertz challenge for it on halfway and it runs through to Hofmann who has the half to himself.

Clean through on goal, tucks it past Pickford with minimal fuss. And then the offside flag goes up.

20:07 , Matt Verri

22 mins: Mount pressing well for England, getting right up the pitch alongside the front three.

Germany win a free-kick as Maguire clatters into Havertz in the air - wouldn’t describe that as very subtle.

20:04 , Matt Verri

19 mins: Rice with two sliding challenges in the space of about 30 seconds, 60 yards apart. Relentless pace to the match.

No real chances for either side yet. Couple of comfortable saves and a great piece of defending from Walker as close as we’ve got to the scoreboard being troubled.

20:02 , Matt Verri

17 mins: England on the ropes a bit here, Rice with a poor pass that almost leaves his team vulnerable.

Germany pressing high and getting plenty of bodies forward... Pickford does just about enough to claim a low cross into the box at the second time of asking.

Simon Collings at the Allianz Arena

20:00 , Matt Verri

A blow for England after just 13 minutes as Phillips limps off. He’s been riddled by injury all season and now he’s struck down again. Big chance for Bellingham, though.

19:59 , Matt Verri

14 mins: Lovely finish from Muller as he lobs the ball over Pickford, but the whistle had already gone.

Phillips has gone down again, he’s not going to be able to continue. His night is going to be over very prematurely.

Bellingham on to replace him.

19:57 , Matt Verri

12 mins: Nicely worked from Germany on the left, cut back to Musiala and he tries his luck from the edge of the box.

Low shot is blocked - might have bounced back up onto Rice’s arm and there are appeals for handball. Never going to be given.

19:55 , Matt Verri

10 mins: Phillips down after a challenge on Schlotterbeck. He looks in a lot of pain, no rush to get back up to his feet.

Already been three or four times when players have gone down appealing for free-kicks - referee has had no interest on every occasion.

Phillips back up but he’s not moving well at all.

19:52 , Matt Verri

7 mins: Kane with a lovely scooped pass in behind, Sterling gets on the end of it and again Rudiger is across. Corner England.

Trippier takes, headed away at the near post. Worked back forward, Kane finds space for the shot just outside the box and rifles an effort straight at Neuer.

Entertaining start in Munich!

Malik Ouzia’s analysis

19:51 , Matt Verri

It’s almost a dual challenge for England’s defenders in possession tonight. Not only have they got one less option than in the back five (where one centre-back is almost always available) but they’re playing a side whose pressing has been one of their significant improvements under Hansi Flick.

19:50 , Matt Verri

5 mins: England get forward for the first time, Rice makes the run and Rudiger is across to clear the danger.

Rice’s pass across the pitch to Walker isn’t a great one, England play all the way back to Pickford and he sends the ball straight out of play.

Simon Collings at the Allianz Arena

19:49 , Matt Verri

It looks like a 4-2-3-1 for England, with Mount as the No10 - a role he loves. Rice and Phillips will screen the back-four and Saka gets to play right wing.

19:48 , Matt Verri

3 mins: Trippier gives away an incredibly cheap corner and out of nothing Germany have a corner.

Swung in... NEARLY! Rudiger flicked it on, looked destined for the far corner but Walker does brilliantly to turn it over the bar with Muller waiting for a tap-in.

Corner from the other side this time, Kane heads it away.

19:47 , Matt Verri

1 min: Bright start from Germany, Neuer typically calm to help his side play through the England press.

Eventually it’s slid through to Havertz in the box who drills a low effort at goal from a tight angle. Comfortable save for Pickford.

KICK-OFF!

19:45 , Matt Verri

We are underway in Munich!

19:42 , Matt Verri

Here we go then, teams are out onto the pitch.

National anthems - tick tick. We are pretty much ready to get this one underway.

19:37 , Matt Verri

Players are in the tunnel, kick-off coming up in just a few minutes!

Lots of England fans have made the trip to Munich - they’re likely to be dotted all around the stadium.

Both sides to take the knee

19:33 , Matt Verri

Germany will take the knee before kick-off tonight, joining England in doing so.

“We’re two nations with huge numbers of mixed heritage nationals and I think it’s an important sign for everybody, so we welcome that,” Gareth Southgate said.

“We are united in our beliefs.”

Kick-off in 20 minutes!

19:26 , Matt Verri

Flick: England will be a tough test

19:19 , Matt Verri

German boss Hansi Flick is expected a physical test tonight as his side welcome England to Munich.

“We have prepared well for England,” Flick said. “If we stick to our plan, we’ll hopefully put in a good performance and get the win in front of a sold-out stadium in Munich.

“England are a really physical side and it will be a tough test for us.

“We are nevertheless looking forward to it. It will be important to match their physicality and to play our own game.

“It’s a special game for us. We need to get the fans as pumped up as we are with some attractive football.”

Southgate insists England can learn from Germany

19:08 , Matt Verri

Gareth Southgate says Germany are “still the benchmark” for major tournament success.

Southgate’s side enjoyed a famous success over the Germans in the last-16 of Euro 2020, while Germany failed to make it out of the group stage at the 2018 World Cup when defending the title they had won four years earlier.

Despite successive tournament disappointments, however, the Three Lions boss says his side can still learn plenty from their hosts.

“For me, Germany and Brazil are still the benchmark in terms of countries that have regularly and consistently won tournaments,” Southgate said.

“That mentality is what we’re trying to create - we’ve got to keep trying to get to latter stages of competitions. Games like [this] are brilliant for us, that’s exactly the kind of test we need.”

Sterling returns for England

19:01 , Matt Verri

On Monday, a video re-emerged on social media that will have had England fans up and down the country stopping their scroll, ignoring their laptops and clocking off for seven minutes to revel, a year on, in the summer that was.

It was a montage, showing each of the 11 goals Gareth Southgate’s side struck on their way to eventual heartache in the final of the European Championships.

Raheem Sterling scored three of them, the first three, in fact, when Harry Kane, the eventual top-scorer, was yet to fire, but had his fingerprints all over many of the others, assisting the captain’s quarter-final opener against Ukraine, forcing Simon Kjaer’s own-goal equaliser in the semi against Denmark and winning the spot-kick that eventually decided that fixture.

Ahead of Sterling’s return to the England side in Munich tonight, the Manchester City forward having sat out the defeat to Hungary after illness, it gave a timely reminder of just how integral he is to this team.

Flexible line-up for England

18:53 , Matt Verri

As expected, a strong team from Southgate, writes Simon Collings.

Difficult to say if it’s a back-three or four, but crucially he has the luxury to switch it in game if required.

Germany team

18:51 , Matt Verri

Starting XI: Neuer, Klostermann, Rudiger, Schlotterbeck, Raum, Kimmich, Gundogan, Hofmann, Muller, Musiala, Havertz

England team

Starting XI: Pickford, Walker, Stones, Maguire, Trippier, Phillips, Rice, Saka, Mount, Sterling, Kane

Next up for England

18:28 , Matt Verri

After tonight’s clash in Germany, there’s two more Nations League matches to come in the next week for England.

Italy are welcomed to Molineux on Sunday, before the Three Lions get the chance for revenge against Hungary next Tuesday.

Then there’s just two more matches before the World Cup!

Stage is set!

18:23 , Matt Verri

Issues for Southgate to address

18:17 , Matt Verri

Gareth Southgate was sat watching from the bench the last time England played Germany in Munich.

The then 30-year-old was an unused substitute as Sven-Goran Eriksson’s side dismantled Germany 5-1 in 2001 to record their biggest victory over their great rivals.

Southgate can still vividly recall that game 21 years ago, even remembering that Germany played with two man-markers and a sweeper, and says it was a night he learned “a hell of a lot”.

Returning as England manager tonight, Southgate will be hoping to learn plenty about his own players when they take on Germany in the Nations League. With 168 days and five games left until England face Iran in their World Cup opener on November 21, there are still issues in the team that Southgate needs to resolve.

Crowd building...

18:08 , Matt Verri

Last time out...

18:01 , Matt Verri

England’s Nations League campaign got off to a really poor start as they were beaten 1-0 by Hungary on Saturday.

Dominik Szoboszlai’s penalty proved to be the difference as Gareth Southgate’s side struggled in the Budapest heat.

“We probably lacked a half-yard I would say, in terms of our real incisiveness,” Southgate said.

“I think that was more the heat than the length of the season.

“The other factor is, we haven’t played together for three months and we have had three games in six months.”

Concerns over crowd trouble

17:53 , Matt Verri

German police are prepared for the threat of serious crowd trouble here in Munich tonight, after hundreds of England fans bought tickets in the home end at the Allianz Arena, writes Simon Collings.

England have an allocation of 3,466 tickets for tonight’s Nations League match, but around 5,000 are thought to have travelled to Munich and hundreds have purchased tickets in the German end. Amid fears of crowd trouble, 700 police officers have launched a major security operation and reports in Germany state they are “ready for action”.

England manager Gareth Southgate has urged England fans not to “embarrass” the nation.

Ahead of the fixture, 880 known English troublemakers have given up passports and there are 1,122 banning orders in effect.

Prediction

17:45 , Matt Verri

England need to get their act together if they are to come away from Munich with anything. Southgate’s experimental line-up will not be repeated, so there should be more solidity to the team.

Germany fought back to earn a point in Italy and should have enough to take another point in front of their own fans.

A 2-2 draw.

England team news

17:37 , Matt Verri

For England, Phil Foden remains absent with Covid but City team-mate Raheem Sterling should come in and could be joined in the front line by Jack Grealish.

James Justin and Fikayo Tomori will not be risked. Borussia Dortmund’s Jude Bellingham will hope to impress against German opposition.

Predicted England XI (3-4-3): Pickford; Walker, Stones, Maguire; James, Phillips, Rice, Trippier; Saka, Kane, Sterling.

Germany team news

17:30 , Matt Verri

Germany have no fresh injury concerns after their draw in Italy and will hope to welcome Marco Reus back from illness.

Chelsea duo Kai Havertz and Timo Werner should start against the English. Antonio Rudiger, fresh from joining Real Madrid, will likely line up at the back. Manchester City’s Ilkay Gundogan is expected to start in the middle.
