International Football Live: England v Germany
Mark Pougatch hosts as England begin their preparations for the 2018 FIFA World Cup with the first of a pair of daunting fixtures at Wembley against two of the most successful nations in the history of the game.
Reigning world champions Germany arrive at Wembley having qualified with ease for Russia 2018. They recorded a perfect ten wins in a row and a staggering 43 goals.
England's last game was against Lithuania, which they won 1-0 with a Harry Kane penalty. Kane captained the Three Lions against Slovenia in their most previous match, and his late goal sealed a 1-0 win to ensure England will be competing for football’s ultimate honour next summer.
Germany have won the World Cup four times, and Joachim Low’s men won on their last visit to Wembley, with Arsenal captain - Per Mertesacker - securing a 1-0 win.
England’s next opponents five days later are five-time world champions Brazil. Mark is joined at Wembley for expert analysis by Ian Wright, Ryan Giggs and Lee Dixon, while commentary comes from Clive Tyldesley and former England manager Glenn Hoddle.
