England face Germany in the Nations League tonight and we take a look at the best specials our affiliates have to offer.
Gareth Southgate’s side came unstuck last time out when they failed to break down a determined Hungary side.
The Three Lions went on to lose 1-0, failing to score for the first time in 15 games, but that’s now three away games on the bounce in the Nations League without a goal.
Germany come into this game on the back of a 1-1 draw away to European Champions Italy.
The Azzuri fielded an unfamiliar lineup, but the Germans failed to capitalise on that and left Bologna with just a point.
The last time the two sides met will be remembered for a long time for those donning the three lions, with England knocking Germany out of the Euros following a 2-0 win last summer.
Since then, though, Die Mannschaft have embarked on a 10 game unbeaten run, which was of course extended on Saturday.
The Nations League hasn’t been a tournament for success for Germany, having failed to progress in the last two tournaments.
They have won just two games in the tournament, however, they undefeated on home soil so it won’t be an easy task for Southgate’s men.
However, it will provide good preparation for their World Cup campaign, which will surely be better than the last where they failed to make out of the group in 2018.
It’s been a pretty even fixture in the last few years, England just getting the edge with two wins from their last four meetings.
Deciding a winner isn’t easy, as if the same England who played at the Puskas Arena turned up, then it’ll be a straightforward win for Germany.
However, if England can perform how they did at Wembley Stadium last summer, we’ll have an interesting game in store for us.
It was Harry Kane who headed home the final nail in Germany’s coffin last summer, finishing from close range.
It wasn’t the first time he’d found the net against the Germans either, having done so in 2016, in Berlin when England won 3-2.
Kane has a fantastic record for England and a goal against Germany tonight certainly wouldn’t come as a surprise to anyone.
