After a lacklustre 1-0 defeat in Hungary, England travel to Munich looking to kickstart their 2022 UEFA Nations League campaign at the second time of asking. Germany, meanwhile, will relish the chance to get one over on the last team to beat them. A traditionally one-sided rivalry this may be, but that won't stop the away fans in particular from making their voices heard in the same city they memorably won 5-1 in qualifying for the 2002 World Cup. The game kicks off at 7.45pm BST (2.45pm ET) tonight and is free-to-air in both the UK and USA. Make sure you know how to watch a Germany vs England live stream for free wherever you are.
The teams are in and Germany start with Kai Havertz up front, who replaces Timo Werner in the starting XI. Havertz is one of seven changes as David Raum, England-born Jamal Musiala, Lukas Klostermann, Jonas Hoffmann, Ilkay Gundogan and Nico Schlotterbeck come in for Serge Gnabry, Leroy Sane, Niklas Sule, Benjamin Henrichs, Thilo Kehrer and Leon Goretzka. Manuel Neuer, Joshua Kimmich, Antonio Rudiger and Thomas Muller keep their places.
For England, Gareth Southgate makes five changes from the Hungary defeat as Kieran Trippier, John Stones, Kalvin Phillips, Raheem Sterling and Bukayo Saka replace James Justin, Conor Coady, Jude Bellingham, Jarrod Bowen and Trent Alexander-Arnold. Harry Kane starts in a front three flanked by Sterling and Mount, with Trippier and Saka expected to start as wing-backs. Harry Maguire starts at the back, with Jordan Pickford in goal. Jack Grealish and Reece James again make do with the places on the bench.
You couldn't accuse Germany of having the most difficult fixture schedule since exiting Euro 2020 with a 2-0 defeat to England, but victories over Liechtenstein, Armenia and Romania – among others – have racked up eight wins from 10 international games since last summer.
Draws in the last two matches, March's 1-1 friendly stalemate with the Dutch and the same scoreline in Bologna against Italy to open their Nations League campaign, show that Hansi Flick's side are still rebuilding. They need a result against England too.
Leroy Sane, Thomas Muller, Serge Gnabry and Timo Werner make a fine front four, with Kai Havertz also sniffing a start, but defensively only Antonio Rudiger inspires much confidence in front of an ageing Manuel Neuer.
England struggled for rhythm in Budapest. Gareth Southgate's preferred 3-4-3 system failed to put enough bodies in dangerous areas in support of Harry Kane. Trent Alexander-Arnold didn't have his best game at right-wing-back. Reece James may replace the Liverpool man, despite conceding the penalty which ultimately gave England their first defat in 90 minutes for 22 games.
Bukayo Saka is a likely addition to the starting XI, whether at wing-back or in the front three, while Harry Maguire's malaise continues in defence. A game against Germany means more to England than it does to Tuesday's hosts, so expect a good deal more passion from the Three Lions than they exhibited at the weekend.
The big match kicks off at 7.45pm BST tonight, Tuesday 7th June at the Allianz Arena in Munich, Germany. Follow our guide on how to watch a Germany vs England live stream for free wherever you are in the world.
