England manager Gareth Southgate has plenty to ponder ahead of the start of the World Cup 2022. This match against old rivals Germany will be the last chance for fringe players to impress the boss and demonstrate exactly why they deserve to be on the plane to Qatar. It’s also an important match for the Three Lions as they look to avoid an embarrassing relegation from their Nations League group.

In his pondering time, one decision he may have made was to sit Trent Alexander-Arnold. The defender's not been enough to make the cut. Other players not making the day include Fikayo Tomori (defender) of AC Milan, Jarrod Bowen (winger/forward) of West Ham and James Ward-Prowse (midfielder) of Southampton. Jack Grealish (winger/attacking midfielder) of Manchester City is currently suspended.

Germany are also in full World Cup preparation mode at this point and looking to avoid repeating their disastrous campaign at World Cup 2018. Germany arrived in Russia as the defending champions with expectations of retaining their title high, but suffered the ignominy of a group stage exit after losses to South Korea and Mexico. 

This refreshed German national team will be keen to put on a show in their final Nations League match ahead of this year's tournament, to send a message to the rest of the world. Plus, this game is also a repeat of the Euro 2020 quarterfinals. In that game England emerged victorious, winning 2-0, so revenge may also be on the German agenda. 

England and Germany have a long history of thrilling and closely fought international fixtures, so could this Nations League tie be another one for the history books? Find out by watching an England vs Germany live stream, and we’ll show you how to do so below. 


England (3-4-2-1 formation): 1 Pope, 4 Stones, 5 Dier, 6 Maguire, 2 James, 7 Rice, 8 Bellingham, 3 Shaw, 11 Foden, 10 Sterling, 9 Kane

Germany (4-2-3-1 formation): 22 ter Stegen, 5 Kehrer, 15 Süle, 23 Schlotterbeck, 3 Raum, 6 Kimmich, 21 Gündogan, 18 Hofmann, 14 Musiala, 19 Sané, 7 Havertz
