England v Germany Past Meetings

This will be the 31st meeting between these two nations, with Germany shading the head-to-head record with 15 wins compared to England’s 13.

Germany won a friendly meeting 1-0 in March, twelve months after the Three Lions won 3-2 in Berlin.

The last competitive meeting between these sides came in 2010, when Germany triumphed 4-1 in the Round of 16 in the World Cup.

The last two meetings at Wembley between the two have resulted in 1-0 victories for Die Mannschaft.

England v Germany Stats

England have failed to win any of their three friendly matches since Euro 2016 – a 2-2 draw with Spain was followed by defeats to Germany and France.

However, the Three Lions are undefeated at Wembley in nine matches dating back to a defeat to the Netherlands in March 2013.

Germany are unbeaten in all of their 19 matches since Euro 2016, winning 16 but drew both away friendlies against Italy and Denmark.

Joachim Low’s side won their qualification group with ten straight victories, scoring 44 goals and conceded on just four occasions.

England v Germany Team News

England will be without injured Spurs trio Dele Alli, Harry Winks and Harry Kane while there are doubts over Chelsea’s Gary Cahill and Jordan Henderson of Liverpool. Michael Keane of Everton and West Brom’s Jake Livermore are both included.

Gareth Southgate has handed first senior call-ups to Swansea striker Tammy Abraham, Liverpool’s Joe Gomez and Crystal Palace midfielder Ruben Loftus-Cheek.

Mario Gotze and Ilkay Gundogan have earned recalls to the Germany squad after missing most of 2017 through injury.

Bayern pair Manuel Neuer and Thomas Muller miss out through injury, while uncapped full-back Marcel Halstenburg is a surprise inclusion.

Reason for England v Germany Bets

Germany have been Europe’s most impressive national side since the European Championships 16 months ago – going on a long unbeaten streak and winning the Confederations Cup.

They have strength in depth, a clear vision and players who seamlessly carry their club form into international football – it could be argued England lack all of these aspects.

England’s qualification for next summer’s World Cup was efficient but unspectacular with the team often scraping results whilst lacking coherency in their play.

The host will be missing their two best players in Alli and Kane, while Germany should have too much talent in their side to contend with.

Earlier this year Germany won 1-0 while each of their last two trips to Wembley have ended with the same result and a similar scoreline is once again to be expected.

International friendlies tend to be dull and low-scoring affairs with games punctuated by substitutions.
