Both goals were scored in the second half of the game after the English failed to get the better of their oldest rivals in the first period.

Chances were few and far between in the first half but both sides had a shot on target each in the entire 45 minutes.

The Three Lions who were the better side had the first attempt on goal as Raheem Sterling's shot was pammed away by Manuel Neuer from 20-yards out.

Timo Werner also had his opportunity to score with his left foot but Jordan Pickford was quick to come out and make the save.

England looked the likelier team to find the back of the net in the second half but had to wait until the 75th minute to break the deadlock.
