Of course, on the one hand, this means absolutely nothing. Germany can’t win the group and make it to the finals; England are already relegated from the top tier. But that’s just the price. What about the value?

Germany could do with a result in their last serious test before the World Cup in November, especially after losing at home to Hungary on Friday evening. But England are even more desperate, after two draws and three defeats in their last five games, one of those losses their biggest setback at home since the 1920s. They haven’t scored a goal from open play in over seven hours of football; with Gareth Southgate booed off after the last two games, it would seem all the goodwill earned by appearances in the 2018 World Cup semis and the Euro 2020 final has, fairly or unfairly, pretty much drained away.

A win tonight against one of the old enemies, in England’s last match before Qatar, would cut Southgate some precious slack. Anything else will ratchet up the pressure and sour the national mood for the entirety of the two-month run-up to the World Cup. No biggie, then. Kick off at Wembley is at 7.45pm BST. It’s on!

Harry Kane (74 caps, 50 goals) spoke to Channel 4 (P5, W0, D2, L3): “We need to be more clinical. We got into good areas last night, but we didn’t get the final pass or the final round. In these big games there are good margins, so hopefully we can correct that tonight. We’ve been working really hard on both days. The two we had and hopefully ours will be tonight. We know it’s going to be a tough match. We need to play our own game.”

This is the first time the England national team has played at home since the death of Queen Elizabeth II. She is memorialized on the cover of Match Tonight by the iconic photograph of her handing the Jules Rimet Trophy to Bobby Moore at Wembley in 1966.

Preamble

Of course, on the one hand, this means absolutely nothing. Germany It is not possible to win the group and reach the finals; England has already been relegated to the first division. But this is only the price. What about the value?

Germany could score in their last serious test before the World Cup in November, especially after losing at home to Hungary on Friday night. But England They are even more desperate, after two draws and three defeats in their last five games, one of those losses being the biggest setback at home since the 1920s. They have not scored a goal from open play in more than seven hours of football; With Gareth Southgate being booed after the last two games, it looks like all the goodwill gained from appearing in the 2018 World Cup semi-finals and Euro 2020 final has been largely exhausted, fair or unfairly.

Tonight’s victory over an old foe, in England’s last game before Qatar, will wipe out some precious slack. Anything else would add pressure and hurt the national mood throughout the two-month World Cup run-up. No big problem then. Kick off at Wembley at 7.45pm GMT. It’s up!
