Germany host England in the second game of their Nations League group stage, with both sides looking to book their first wins of the campaign. Things are heating up as the league table is beginning to take shape, and more permutations coming into the fray gradually.
England lost their opening game 1-0 to Hungary, and will be hoping to bounce back when they head to the Allianz Arena. Gareth Southgate’s side have failed to win in their last 3 nations league away games, and to make matters worse, they did not score a single goal in those games. Southgate blamed their loss to Hungary on the weather, but also acknowledged his side lacked intensity.
They have their work cut out, however, as they take on a Germany side who are unbeaten in their last 10 games. Following Hansi Flick’s takeover, Germany have been quite the force to reckon with, especially at home where they have won all 4 matches under Flick, with an average of 4.75 goals per game.. Although they have drawn their last two games against Italy and the Netherlands, Die Mannschaft will be hoping to make home advantage count.
Kick-Off: 20:45 CET
Allianz Arena, Munich
Germany vs England Team News
Hansi Flick is not expected to make wholesale changes, with the only probable changes being the players who failed to make an impression in the last game against Italy. Luckily for Germany, there are no injuries. Marco Reus remains a doubt, while David Raum is expected to come in at left-back. Raum’s inclusion will see PSG’s Thilo Kehrer return to his original right-back position.
Gareth Southgate will be without Phil Foden as he is recovering from covid related issues. Jack Grealish and Raheem Sterling are expected to come in, whilst Mason Mount and Jarod Bowen will likely makeway.
Jordan Pickford has cemented himself as England’s undisputed starter, with the back-three of Maguire, Stones and Walker expected to start. Conor Coady will likely be replaced.
Reece James, go gave away the decisive penalty, could replace Trent Alexander-Arnold on the right flank. England have some of the best right backs in the world, with Kyle Walker also an option if Southgate decides to go back to a back-four.
Germany vs England Team Tactics
Hansi Flick is well renowned for his high-pressing style of play. Like many German managers, he emphasizes winning the ball back high up the pitch and creating overloads. These turnovers allow Germany to overwhelm their opposition with a numerical advantage.
Thomas Muller can float in and out of the box, and if Kai Havertz does start, a interesting dynamic is sure to be built between the two. We expected Leon Goreztka to be replaced by Ilkay Gundogan, and that will surely add some attacking threat from the middle of the pitch.
Southgate will for sure have told his players about how they have to amp up the intensity upfront. The inclusion of Raheem Sterling is sure to add some much needed flair upfront, with Harry Kane always a dangerous channel of attack.
England will be hoping that their full-backs can influence the game even more. Harry Kane is a great header of the ball, and if some deadly deliveries are sent his way, he will be sure to pounce. Southgate will be well aware that the only way to fight back against Germany’s pressure is by hitting them back with pressure.
Players to Watch
Harry Kane is always the danger man. The Tottenham Hotspur striker is one of the best finishers in world football. Southgate will be hoping that his hitman will be able to replicate his club form at the Allianz Arena.
Muller is the man for the big occasion. The Bayern Munich man plays one of the vague roles on the pitch, but is always effective. He is one of the silent assassins of the team, and you can be sure that he will have a hand in the goals tonight.
