Second-string England hold Germany to draw at Wembley

Friendly international, Wembley - England 0 Germany 0

An inexperienced England side held world champions Germany to a goalless draw in an entertaining international friendly at Wembley.
The visitors, who were also under-strength, had the better of the openings with Manchester City's Leroy Sane hitting the crossbar, while Timo Werner was twice denied by Jordan Pickford who enjoyed an impressive full bow.
England also had their moments as Kieran Trippier and Tammy Abraham went close in the first half. The hosts occasionally threatened on the counter attack in a tight second period, with substitute Jesse Lingard blazing over from close range at the death.
Manager Gareth Southgate had seen seven players withdraw from his initial squad for this encounter, so he'll be delighted with the impact made by a host of fringe stars looking to force their way into his plans for next summer's World Cup in Russia.
No fewer than five players made their debuts on a night full of positives that will send England into Tuesday's meeting with Brazil at Wembley in good spirits.
