Germany was salvaged in last seconds of the match!

It was a very interesting game considering how poorly both teams played. Both teams played poorly and only sometimes stood out. Germany appears to be illiterate despite England’s lack of serious threat.


Marc-Andre Ter Stegan gave an outstanding goalkeeping effort while filling in for Manuel Neuer today. His ability was most clearly demonstrated by the save he made to stop Bukayo Saka in the last minutes of the game. He seemed to have taken back his earlier criticisms and upped his game.


Gnabry and Havertz effectively salvaged Germany in the last seconds of the match.

For the first time in history, England went six games without a victory,

but Kai Havertz’s late goal prevented them from staging a historic turnaround in their final match before the World Cup,

giving Gareth Southgate cause for optimism.

Harry Kane’s penalty brought him to within three goals of Wayne Rooney’s record for England,

and goals from Luke Shaw,

Mason Mount, and Harry Kane helped the Three Lions mount an impressive comeback from a 2-0 deficit. However,

Havertz scored a late equaliser to tie the score at 3-3 after Nick Pope had missed a shot.

Manchester City supporters have outlined their frustration after watching John Stones pick up a hamstring injury while playing for England.

Recalled to the starting XI against Germany by Gareth Southgate on Monday night after missing the Italy reverse due to suspension,

Stones came for City teammate-

who had only just recovered from a muscular problem himself. However, there was bad news to come for Stones.

Indeed,

the 28-year-old only lasted 37 minutes before he had to be withdrawn. Incidentally, it was ‘rested’ Walker who was summoned from the substitutes bench by Southgate,

despite pre-game concerns over match sharpness upon his return to top-level action.

Spilled Serge Gnabry’s shot straight to Havertz for Germany’s late equaliser. Shaky with the ball at his feet and looks ill-suited to playing out from the back. Got nowhere near the penalty and was well beaten by Havertz’s first strike.

a back pass to Pope but otherwise looked comfortable on the right of the back three before pulling up after 35 minutes.

England rallied from two goals down to take the lead momentarily before drawing 3-3

with Germany in a thrilling UEFA Nations League group stage finale at Wembley Stadium on Monday night.

Second-half goals from Ilkay Gundogan and Kai Havertz looked to have Germany on their way to victory,

but Luke Shaw and Mason Mount levelled the score in a span of five minutes. VAR then awarded England a penalty,

which Harry Kane converted to give the home side a brief lead, before Havertz tucked away his second of the night to reach the final scoreline.

Nations League finals spots were off the table

for both sides with England already relegated to the competition’s second tier and Germany

coming into their last matchday sitting third,

but the game had added importance for the Three Lions as it marked their final tests ahead of the start of the World Cup on Nov. 20.

Gareth Southgate’s side continued to look dangerous on the counter,

but there was no end result with Sterling once again firing right at Ter Stegen following his full-field run to get onto Kane’s ball into the area.

What seemed unlikely as the clock passed 70 minutes soon became reality,

as Shaw and substitute Mount struck in quick succession to get the match back on level terms and bring the home support roaring back to life.

However,

a poor effort from Pope spilled a long-range shot back into the path of Havertz to side-foot into the back of the net and end the game 3-3.

Bukayo Saka broke clear on goal in second-half stoppage time with a chance to win it for England only for Ter Stegen to touch his shot past the post.

Flick said he was disappointed to see a 2-0 lead turn into a 3-2 deficit

in the space of 13 second-half minutes but focused instead on his own team’s late recovery.

“We were quite stable at 2-0,

but England brought on a couple of substitutes that made them better offensively,” Flick said.

“But we have to look at it positively as well. I said to my players that they showed great courage and never gave up so it was great to come back.”
