England vs. Germany live score, updates as Shaw and Mount goals spark comeback in UEFA Nations League clash

By | September 26, 2022

WEMBLEY STADIUM, LONDON — Gareth Southgate has 90 minutes left of match action before his team step out for their 2022 World Cup opener against Iran on November 21.

He’ll be hoping for a few more positives against Germany at Wembley after his side suffered a 1-0 defeat to Italy on Friday that saw him booed off by a section of England fans at full-time.

The Three Lions will be hoping to end a run of five matches without a win, and three without finding the net, but they come up against a talented Germany side who also suffered a shock defeat to Hungary last time out.

Will Southgate play his best XI? Will he hand Ivan Toney his England debut? We’ll soon find out how we’re looking ahead of Qatar.

The Sporting News is following the match live and providing live score updates, commentary.

England vs. Germany live updates, highlights from UEFA Nations League

84th min: GOAL! England 3-2 Germany

Kane absolutely rockets it into the top left of the goal despite Ter Stegen guessing correctly. What a turnaround!

81st min: Penalty England! Bellingham is crunched in the box by Nico Schlotterbeck. A VAR check again helps the referee change his mind. The defender gets a yellow card.

79th min: Thomas Muller is on for Musiala. England are pushing for a winner now and the crowd are making their voices heard.

75th min: GOAL! England 2-2 Germany

Oh my! Wembley has lift off as substitute Mount fires England level. Fellow sub Saka does brilliantly to dance past the German midfield before laying off a delicate pass to Mount who rifles it beyond Ter Stegen from just inside the box. Game on!

72nd min: GOAL! England 1-2 Germany

Shaw is unmarked at the back post and manages to slot it through Ter Stegen’s legs. England’s goal drought is over!

69th min: Serge Gnabry and Robin Gosens are on for Sane and Raum.

67th min: GOAL! England 0-2 Germany

Kai Havertz curls one in with his left foot from the right side of the box into the top corner. He had so much time on the edge of the box. England’s defence were all out of shape after Maguire had lost the ball at the other end of the pitch.

64th min: Double change for England as Mason Mount and Bukayo Saka come on for Foden and Sterling.

62nd min: Another big chance for the visitors! This time Werner gets free on the left to get a shot away but he drags it just wide of the far post.

56th min: James comes forward down the right before squaring one back to Bellingham but the midfielder blazes his shot well over the bar. 

52nd min: GOAL! England 0-1 Germany

Gundogan steps up and side foots it low into the bottom right corner of the goal. Pope had no chance.

51st min: Maguire gives the ball away sloppily and the Manchester United defender then trips Jamal Musiala in the box when one on one. It’s waved away by the referee initially, only for VAR to intervene and it’s a stonewall penalty upon replays. Penalty Germany.

49th min: Sterling cuts in on the left of the box to try and whip one into the bottom right of the goal. But unlike his goal against Leicester this season this one doesn’t fly in and barely troubles the keeper.

We’re underway in the second half! One change for Germany as Timo Werner comes on for Jonas Hofmann.


45th min +2: Joshua Kimmich drills a low shot the edge of the box that has Pope at full stretch but it goes just wide of the post.

43rd min: Another huge chance goes begging for England and it’s Sterling again. This time Kane plays the Chelsea forward in from the left and his first-time effort from close range is straight at Ter Stegen.

38th min: England showcase their speed on the counter with Sterling running at pace with the ball and Shaw even quicker on the overlap but his cross can’t find the box.

36th min: Stones has gone down and appears to be holding his right hamstring. He’s taken off for Kyle Walker.

34th min: England have sat off a little now and are inviting Germany pressure. The Three Lions have also now gone over 300 minutes without scoring…

31st min: A heart in mouth moment there for Wembley as Thilo Kehrer went down in the box under a challenge from Sterling but referee Danny Makkelie waves it away. Replays show a slight shirt tug but probably not enough to warrant a penalty. A close one though.

27th min: Another chance for England as Kane finds some space and tries an audacious volley from the back post but it goes wide.

25th min: Germany have had 65% possession so far but then England come so close to opening the scoring! Luke Shaw plays a brilliant curled through ball into Sterling who cuts back inside two men in the middle of the box, but his shot is well saved by Marc-Andre ter Stegen who gets down quickly to his right.

22nd min: A couple of sketchy back passes in the space of a few minutes find their way back to Nick Pope but the goalkeeper does well to clear his lines.

21st min: Jude Bellingham is proving a handful in the middle so far, he wins a free-kick after being clattered on the left wing.

17th min: Germany win a free-kick in a dangerous position on the edge of the box from a James foul. Leroy Sane”s effort is straight into the wall.

14th min: Harry Maguire fails to clear his lines down by the corner flag before making amends with a block and it’s another corner. England clear though.

12th min: Ilkay Gundoğan has the first shot of the match, but his first-time effort from the edge of the box goes well over.

10th min: Germany get the first corner of the ball but David Raum’s set-piece is overhit and Declan Rice does well to win the ball at the back post before dribbling it out and playing a majestic through ball to Sterling on the opposite flank but the move soon breaks down.

8th min: Foden picks up a loose ball from the centre circle and drives at Germany’s centre-backs before laying off a pass to Kane on the right. Foden and Raheem Sterling get in the box but the Tottenham striker’s cross evades everyone.

5th min: A cagey start so far, Kane’s having to drop fairly deep into the centre circle to try and get the ball for his team and start any attacks.

2nd min: Reece James links up with Kane down the right side but the latter’s cross is blocked.

We’re underway!

2 mins from kickoff: National anthems and handshakes complete, here we go. A quick reminder of the starting XIs for both teams.

England starrting lineup: Pope (GK) — Maguire, Dier Stones, — Shaw, Bellingham, Rice, James — Sterling, Kane, Foden

Germany starting lineup: Ter Stegen (GK) — Raum, Sule, Schlotterbeck, Kehrer — Gundogan, Kimmich — Sane, Musiala Hofmann, — Havertz 

5 mins from kickoff: The players are in the tunnel. Football’s coming home is being played over the tannoy and the rain is holding off… for now. Wembley’s not quite full just yet but the last few supporters are taking their seats. Not long to go!

15 mins from kickoff: A few words from England captain Harry Kane ahead of kickoff. 

“We need to be more clinical. We got into really good areas [in Friday’s game against Italy] but didn’t have the final pass, run or finish. In these big games those are the fine margins,” he told Channel 4.

“It [not scoring] has been frustrating for sure. I love scoring goals, as do all attacking players. We just haven’t been able to do that well in an England shirt. We’ll keep our heads down and keep working hard.

“It is great to see all the fans here. We’ll want to start well and we’ll need to play well on the ball first and foremost and goals create happy fans so it is our aim.”

30 mins from kickoff: A few stats to get your teeth stuck into then…

Germany are unbeaten across their last six away games against England (W5, D1), with a goalless draw in November 2017 ending a run of five consecutive wins for the visitors [Not including Euro 2020].

England are winless in five matches (D2, L3) for the first time since June 2014 and have failed to score in three successive internationals for the first time since November 2000. 

Not since between April and June 1993 have The Three Lions endured a longer winless run, while only once in their history have they failed to score in four successive games (April to May 1981).

45 mins from kickoff: So what happened last time the two nations met?

The reverse Nations League fixture at the Allianz Arena in June ended in a 1-1 draw as Harry Kane’s 88th minute penalty cancelled out Jonas Hofmann’s opener.

Of course, the time before that should give England the psychological advantage with the Three Lions recording a famous 2-0 win in the last-16 of the European Championships last year. Kane was again on the scoresheet as he added to Raheem Sterling’s opener with a second goal in 11 second-half minutes.

60 mins from kickoff: The teams are in!

Southgate makes two changes from the defeat to Italy with John Stones and Luke Shaw coming in for Kyle Walker and Bukayo Saka.

There’s four changes to Germany’s side that lost to Hungary with Thilo Kehrer, Kai Havertz, Jamal Musiala and Nico Schlotterbeck given the nod.

Antonio Rudiger, Serge Gnabry, Thomas Muller and Timo Werner all drop out.

75 mins from kickoff: As for Germany, a first defeat under Hansi Flick last time out was a shock to the system. But what isn’t a shock is their struggles up top in front of goal. It took them 37 minutes to register a shot on target against the Hungarians. Timo Werner started up front for that one. Will Kai Havertz get the nod tonight? Thomas Muller, Serge Gnabry, Leroy Sane and Jamal Musiala are all options in the forward positions too, of course.

90 mins from kickoff: Plenty of talk in the build up to tonight’s match has entered around the boos Southgate received and the criticism of recent performances.

Southgate said: “The results haven’t been at the level we want, that we require, so no matter what job you have in football that would be the case.

“Of course with the national team that noise is going to be louder and more widespread – I understand that.

“I’m not hiding from it. We are not enjoying it but we have to keep doing the right things every day to keep improving.”

But with this the last chance for England fans to see their side before they head to Qatar in November, Southgate has urged supporters to give them a good send off.

“We’ve got 90,000 people, the stadium’s sold out,” Southgate said ahead of Monday’s Group A3 encounter. “People want to come and see this team play.

“I would urge the supporters to get behind the team. How they deal with me at the end or whenever, on the phone-ins or whatever else, is completely different.

“But this is their last chance to see the boys before they go to the World Cup and we’re all in it together.

“We can only succeed if we’re all pushing in the same direction and we’ve all got that positive energy towards doing well.

“What happens to me is irrelevant, frankly. It’s about the team. The most important thing is the team and the success of the team.”

120 mins from kickoff: Hello, and welcome to The Sporting News’ live coverage of England vs. Germany. For once, in a meeting between these two rivals, there’s not much at stake following the Three Lions’ relegation. But that won’t stop pride and the final World Cup preparations for both teams being the main focus of tonight’s encounter, which should make for fascinating viewing.
