England 0-0 Germany

Goals: You wish 

In one of the better goalless draws that you'll ever see, England and Germany played out an enterprising match at the Wembley. Both sides gave us a measure of their future, with both, England and Germany giving their youth a chance in this friendly. England's youngsters matched the Germans blow for blow and remained unscathed for the majority of the time. 

Leroy Sane went the closest for Germany whereas Jamie Vardy, Tammy Abraham and Jesse Lingard all had decent chances to win it for England. But, the match ended with shared honours, as the Germans continued their unbeaten streak at the Wembley with this match being their seventh game at the venue since 1975.

On that note, here are the 5 talking points from a goalless draw between the eternal rivals: 


#5 England's future looks secure 

England v Germany - International Friendly
Tammy Abraham was one of the four English debutants

Injuries piled up one after the other for Gareth Southgate ahead of the big, yet inconsequential game against Germany. This meant that the England boss had to give debuts to as many as four young Englishmen at the Wembley.

Southgate would be happy after the game as all the debutants showed their qualities on the biggest of stages. 

Jordan Pickford shined between the posts and was one of the best players on the field. Joe Hart might need something special to replace the Everton custodian as England's number one. Tammy Abraham looked nervous at times but was menacing at times.

Ruben Loftus-Cheek was brilliant in the centre of the park and gave the England boss food for thought in his midfield dilemma. Joe Gomez then made his debut after he replaced Phil Jones in the first half. 

The Liverpool defender was composed and showed his strength up against the German attackers. All in all, with the current squad, along with top missing players like Harry Kane, Dele Alli and Adam Lallana; England can certainly look forward to a brighter future.
