England's 1-0 defeat to Italy on Friday night means relegation from the top tier of the UEFA Nations League, so there's nothing but pride to play for under Wembley's arch on Monday night. Giacomo Raspadori's goal was enough to send Gareth Southgate's side to Group B, but with the World Cup just weeks away, this will be a good chance for the England boss to get one last look at his squad.

With that in mind, Southgate has made just two changes to his side, with John Stones and Luke Shaw coming in for Kyle Walker and Bukayo Saka. Jack Grealish misses out completely through suspension, but Three Lions fans will be keen to see Ivan Toney given a chance off the bench ahead of kick-off in Qatar. 

Germany's hopes of progressing to the finals ended when they lost at home to Hungary, but Hansi Flick's side are safe from the drop. Ádám Szalai scored the only goal of the game, putting the Magyars on course for an unlikely victory in Group A3. Die Mannschaft dominated possession but didn't have a shot on target until just before half time, with Thomas Müller's equaliser disallowed for offside. Can they sign off with a win here?

Flick has made four changes to the side that lost on Friday, with Thilo Kehrer, Kai Havertz and Nico Schlotterbeck coming in for Toni Rüdiger, Timo Werner and Serge Gnabry, but Jamal Musiala replacing Müller is a real 'here's what you could've won' for the home team. The exciting 19-year-old represented England at various youth levels, but in 2021 switched to the country of his birth.

The big match kicks off at 7.45pm BST today, Monday 26th September, at Wembley. Follow our guide on how to watch an England vs Germany live stream for free wherever you are in the world.
