England In Good Form

The Three Lions come into this match on the back of a 2-2 draw against Spain, back in November of last year.

It was the perfect start for England, with Adam Lallana converting the opener from the penalty spot in the 9th minute.

Jamie Vardy (48), doubled England's lead just after the restart, with England on the verge of a groundbreaking result.

Iago Aspas (89) ruined England's clean sheet late on, the fightback was truly on at this stage.

Isco completed the comeback deep into injury time (90+7), with the Spanish completing an incredible draw.

Mixed Start To Life

It's a result that will have disappointed Southgate, with England throwing away an excellent position in the dying minutes.

They still regard themselves as a side in transition, they will be building for the World Cup in Russia.

England find themselves top of Group F after wins against Malta and Scotland, they have drawn against Slovenia as well.

Lions Underdogs

The match against Germany is another interesting marker, they can gain no points but will be facing one of the best sides in International football.

Germany will give Southgate an excellent indication of their current level, although this will not help them when the major tournament begins.

England will be looking to draw on their last fixture, which was a 3-2 win at the Olympiastadion this time last year.

England are 18/5 with Jamie Vardy, Jermain Defoe and Marcus Rashford all at 8/1 to open the scoring.
