  • Right, less than 10 minutes to go until kick-off here at Wembley. Big flags. Check. Emotive music. Check. A win for England. Let's see...

  • I'm guessing this bloke's not from the south.

  • 64 min: Good build-up play by England with Chris Smalling of all people showing a turn of pace. Lallana turns well in the box but his dinked cross is dealt with before Sturridge fails to get a decent connection inside the box.

  • 66 min: Perhaps we can't put the 'dodgy keeper' tag to bed just yet. Hart comes out of his box and clatters Smalling. He gets away with that one, just, with the ball running safe. The City stopper does make up for it a little just after with a fine stop from Gotze's low shot. Wilshere is on for Cleverley and Hummels is off for Howedes.

  • 70 min: Nearly a great start for Sam who has only recently come on, but he can only lob it over the bar with Hart storming out and making himself big. Sturridge very nearly in at the other end. Westermann is off for Draxler.
    11/19/2013 9:26:23 PM
  • 71 min: Sturridge tries to turn in the box and nearly gets away from his defender. He then turns provider but Smalling is penalised as he tries to climb in the box. Rooney off for Barkley.

  • Townsend shoots but hits the post...

    11/19/2013 9:28:13 PM
  • 74 min: A bit of dodgy keeping at the other end as Weidenfeller gets his clearance all wrong. Germany get away with it however.
    11/19/2013 9:30:26 PM
  • 77 min: Lallana is off for his Southampton colleague Rickie Lambert. Another decent showing from the midfielder making way.
