WEMBLEY STADIUM, LONDON —England's final match before they head to the World Cup in Qatar later this year saw Gareth Southgate's side sign off with a thrilling 3-3 draw against rivals Germany at Wembley.
While England's relegation in the UEFA Nations League was confirmed last time out against Italy, goals from Luke Shaw, Mason Mount and Harry Kane ensured Three Lions fans at least had something to cheer about, despite Southgate's team now being on a run of six matches without a win.
The home side thought they'd pulled off a miraculous second-half comeback from two goals down when they scored three times in 11 minutes — only for Kai Havertz to score his second of the night at the death for the 3-3 final.
A quiet first half from both sides resulted in England getting to half-time and making it 495 minutes without scoring a non-penalty goal, although Raheem Sterling should have ended that arid spell with two of the best chances.
Things went from bad to worse shortly after the break as Harry Maguire conceded a reckless penalty. His pass was intercepted by Germany's Jamal Musiala, who was tripped by Maguire as he looked to dribble past him. Initially waved away, VAR intervened and a penalty was awarded. Ilkay Gundogan stepped up to cooly slot past England 'keeper Nick Pope into the bottom right corner.
Havertz soon added another for the visitors, curling home a brilliant shot with his left foot from the edge of the box on 67 minutes. But England fans finally had something to cheer about when Luke Shaw bundled home the ball at the back post shortly after.
Prior to that, Southgate had seen England needed fresh legs, and Mason Mount and Bukayo Saka were introduced. The two combined on 75 minutes as the latter danced past the German midfield before delicately laying off a pass for Mount to rifle a first-time shot beyond Marc-Andre ter Stegen for the 2-2 equalizer.
The turnaround looked complete when Germany defender Nico Schlotterbeck crunched Bellingham in the box, and again after VAR intervened, a penalty was awarded. Kane made no mistake from the spot to send the home fans into a frenzy at 3-2.
However, it wasn't to be the perfect World Cup send off with Havertz ruining the party by tapping home from inside six yards after Pope had parried Serge Gnabry's shot from 20 yards.

England's 2022 World Cup chances
Is it really coming home this Christmas? Past World Cup winners haven't typically gone into a tournament off the back of a six-match winless streak.
However, for all the criticism the England boss has received for playing too cautiously or not being attack-minded enough with the talent at his disposal, the way his team responded after going two goals down will be of huge encouragement.
Introducing Mason Mount and Bukayo Saka on 67 minutes at 2-1 down changed the game. The two combined brilliantly to draw the home side level. After Sterling missed a couple of chances in the first half, his Chelsea team-mate Mount showed him just how it's done by rattling home his powerful strike at the first opportunity.
Southgate's going through the biggest wobble of his England coaching career, but this is a manager who has taken England to a World Cup semi-finals and a European Championships final since he took charge and knows how to handle his team in the big tournaments.
Sky Bet currently have England at 13/2 to lift the trophy in Qatar, third favourites behind Brazil and France, but their chances will depend on just how quickly Southgate's team find their best form and navigate the group stage. On evidence of the 1-0 defeat to Italy last week, you'd struggle to see England getting out the group stage, but there were plenty of positives to take from the second half against Germany.
First things first though, Southgate needs to make the right selection with his 26-man squad and surely choose a team consisting of players regularly delivering the goods for their club teams between now and the winter break.

Why is Trent Alexander-Arnold not playing for England?
It's a question every Liverpool fan wants to put to Mr. Southgate. The talented right-back, who missed last year's Euros through injury, has made just one International appearance this year and having been an unused substitute against Italy, he didn't even make the squad at Wembley.
That suggests all you need to know about Alexander-Arnold's chances of heading to Qatar in November. But is Southgate making a mistake? While the 23-year-old has come in for criticism for his defending at times in recent months, he offers plenty going forward. With an average of 2.7 chances created per match this season in all club competitions, no English full-back has more. He's bagged two goals for the Reds this term and again, no English full-back has played more than his 737 minutes of club football so far.
Right-back is a position that offers Southgate plenty of options, and Reece James was given the nod to start against Germany. While there may be some doubts about Alexander-Arnold's defensive capabilities, few offer as much creativity on the other end of the field. If Alexander-Arnold keeps up his impressive performances between now and November, it will be hard for Southgate to ignore. Yet, on squad selections this year you feel Alexander-Arnold is at the bottom of the right-back pecking order and for a cautious Southgate, defensive stability is his priority, of which Alexander-Arnold isn't an option.
Will Harry Maguire go to the World Cup?
Another decision that has split loyalty among England fans. Some of Maguire's best ever performances have come in an England shirt, most importantly at the major tournaments. He was colossus in getting them to the Euro 2021 final. But does that excuse him from what's going on at Manchester United?
Maguire has now lost his place in Erik ten Hag's starting XI, and if he only plays Europa League and cup matches between now and mid-November, is that really enough to warrant a place in Southgate's squad, let alone his starting XI for the World Cup?
Monday night may have even been a sign of rustiness. He gifted the ball to Jamal Musiala inside his own box, and you always feared the experienced defender was going to come out the loser in his 1-v-1 battle against the 19-year-old. He later lost the ball in the final third after a rare burst forward and Germany caught England on the counter attack. Maguire managed to get back in time, but he failed to get out and block Havertz's curled effort.
Had he been playing every week for United in the buildup, would that have changed the outcome of these incidents? It depends on who you ask, but a lack of game time could not have helped.
Maguire's inclusion or exclusion from the World Cup squad will be a huge talking point, but any more major errors could seal his fate in the coming weeks and months.
Wembley stands in unity with a moments silence for the passing of the Queen.#C4Football | #ThreeLions pic.twitter.com/xpTsYbxx3S— Channel 4 Sport (@C4Sport) September 26, 2022

87th min: GOAL! England 3-3 Germany
Havertz gets his second of the night. This one's a tap-in as Pope parries Gnabry's shot from 20 yards. He'll feel he should have done a lot better with that one.
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!
82nd 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.

75th min: GOAL! England 2-2 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.

45th min +2: Joshua Kimmichdrills 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 showcasetheir 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.

31st min: A heart in mouth moment there forWembley 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 percent possession so far, but then England come so close toopening the score!

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.

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

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.

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.
Who are you hoping to see start tonight? 👕#ENGGER pic.twitter.com/hfbc2RIgZI— Germany (@DFB_Team_EN) September 26, 2022
90 mins from kickoff: Plenty of talk in the buildup to tonight's match has centered 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 sendoff.
“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.
