The under-fire Gareth Southgate will be desperate for a victory in what is the Three Lions’ final match before their squad for the inaugural winter World Cup in Qatar has to be named.
Beaten Euro 2020 finalists England have fallen into a deep rut at precisely the wrong time, with a five-match winless run representing their worst for eight years and certainly the toughest stretch under Southgate’s leadership.
The manager faced loud boos from fans once again after Giacomo Raspadori’s second-half effort condemned the visitors to another insipid 1-0 loss against Italy at the San Siro on Friday night, a result that saw England suffer the ignominy of relegation from their Nations League group.
They simply have to show more adventure and attacking promise against Germany in the final chance for players to leave an impression before November’s squad announcement, otherwise the atmosphere could quickly turn very sour once again.
Hansi Flick’s side aren’t exactly firing on all cylinders at the moment either, however, beaten 1-0 by surprise Group A3 leaders Hungary in Leipzig thanks to an early effort from Adam Szalai.
