Germany vs England: Result, Notes and Quotes

Results

England faced Germany in their second Nations League clash of the year on Tuesday night.

The Three Lions headed into the game looking to bounce back from a rather disappointing loss to Hungry in their tournament opener last week.

But when it was all said and done in Munich, Germany and England shared the points. Germany got the better of England in the first 45 but couldn’t find that all-important goal.

It took them just five minutes of the second half to open the scoring, as Hofmann broke an effort past Jordan Pickford.

England, which grew very slowly into the tie, then received a lifeline late when Schlotterbeck knocked Kane down in the box. The English skipper then went 12 yards to send Neuer the wrong way.

Germany player ratings

Manuel Neuer (6) – Commanded his box well and was dialed in on the ball. Made a great late save to deny Kane but then dove the wrong way for England’s penalty.

Lukas Klostermann (6) – Made several good tackles and won several duels.

Antonio Rudiger (6) – Was a threat from set pieces and was precise in his passing.

Nico Schlotterbeck (6.5) – Carried the ball well from the back, won a number of duels on the ground and his passing was largely solid. A good display was marred by him giving away a late penalty, however.

David Raum (6) – Was a real threat going forward, producing a number of key assists. Also helped keep Saka quiet.

Joshua Kimmich (6) – Lackluster first 45 that saw him fail to make a tackle, interception, block or win a duel on the ground. Better second half which saw him slip into Hofmann for his goal.

Ilkay Gundogan (5) – Was one of the quieter German players of the night but still linked up well with Kimmich in the build-up to the opening goal.

Jonas Hofmann (7) – Scored 22 minutes but was offside. Well pressed with Havertz and Musiala. Got his goal after 50 minutes.

Thomas Muller (6) – Caused some problems for the England defense but was ultimately unable to produce that killer pass/shot.

Jamal Musiala (7) – Was a nightmare for Walker to deal with due to his pace and quick feet. Showed good pressing ability as well.

Kai Havertz (6.5) – Caused problems with England centre-backs, won a number of aerial duels.

Substitutes

Timo Werner (3) – Did little on the pitch.

Serge Gnabry (3.5) – Didn’t have much of an impact on the game.

Leon Goretzka (4) – Unable to keep Grealish and Bellingham quiet.

English player ratings

Jordan Pickford (4.5) – Made some good saves but could have done better with the Germany goal. His distribution was correct.

Kyle Walker (5) – Good interception early in the game to deny an almost certain goal. Struggled to deal with Musiala.

John Stones (5) – Struggled to keep the same line as Maguire which led to Germany falling behind too often.

Harry Maguire (4) – Struggled to deal with Havertz and pressured Germany wingers/full-backs. Also continued to come out of defense too often, leaving large spaces behind, including for Germany’s goal.

Kieran Trippier (3) – Once again looked away from his best on the left. Was out of position for Germany’s goal.

Declan Rice (6) – Was aggressive in his tackles, tidy in possession and carried the ball well.

Kalvin Phillips (4) – Made good tackles which led to attacks in England. I had to leave with an injury after 13 minutes.

Mason Mount (6) – Was decent in possession and well pressed. However, he struggled to provide the creative spark England needed.

Bukayo Saka (4) – Had a fairly anonymous game which saw him create little.

Harry Kane (5.5) – Missed a big chance after 26 minutes, which he skied off and picked up another after 76 minutes, which Neuer saved. Finally scored after 87 minutes.

Raheem Sterling (4) – Really poor display. Was barely in the game and when he got the ball back he wasted his chances.

Substitutes

Jude Bellingham (7) – Was one of England’s best players when he arrived, winning a number of duels and making the most tackles of any player on the opposing team.

Jack Grealish (6) – Was brought in to add a much-needed creative spark. Did it after only a few minutes, but Kane missed a great chance.

Jarrod Bowen (3) – Made little remark.
