Germany test to measure England progress
Gareth Southgate has described England's Nations League meeting with Germany at the Allianz Arena on Tuesday as a "brilliant test of where we are" as the World Cup draws closer.
England head to Munich having suffered a shock 1-0 loss to Hungary in their Group C opener but the meeting with Germany, one of only five remaining fixtures before the 2022 World Cup, represents a far sterner challenge.
England will take encouragement from their last meeting with Germany, when Southgate's side triumphed 2-0 at Wembley to secure their place in the Euro 2020 quarter-finals last summer.
But with Hansi Flick having replaced Joachim Low and Germany unbeaten in a year, can England repeat the feat? And will Southgate's players seize this opportunity to impress as he ponders his World Cup selection decisions?
