International Football Friendly: Germany v England
Mark Pougatch introduces live coverage of England's friendly against traditional rivals Germany from Dortmund.
Gareth Southgate will hope to kick-start his reign as permanent manager by leading the Three Lions to a fourth successive victory on German soil.
A year ago England staged a fantastic comeback from 2-0 down to beat Germany 3-2 in Berlin with goals from Harry Kane, Jamie Vardy and Eric Dier. Success at the Signal Iduna Park would be an ideal lead-in to England’s World Cup qualifier against Lithuania four days later.
World Cup winners and Euro 2016 semi-finalists Germany will see the game as a warm-up for their own qualifier in Azerbaijan on the same day.
Mark is joined in the studio by Lee Dixon, Ian Wright and Ryan Giggs. Commentary comes from Clive Tyldesley and former England manager Glenn Hoddle, with reporting from Gabriel Clarke.
