Harry Kane scored a landmark 50th goal to help England produce one of the close football scores in the midweek action of the Nations League. It was their first point of the campaign following their shock 1-0 defeat to Hungary in the opener. Jonas Hoffman gave the home side the lead in the 50th minute before Kane scored the equalizer in the 88th minute. Find the England player ratings below.
Jordan Pickford – 5
Should have done better for Germany’s goal but a slight deflection off John Stones seemed to outfox him and he couldn’t get enough behind Jonas Hofmann’s effort.
Kyle Walker – 6
Back in his preferred role at right-back and had a busy night up against the marauding David Raum.
John Stones – 6
Typically assured on the ball but not as commanding as Gareth Southgate would have liked in a defensive sense.
Harry Maguire – 6
Had an early let-off when Hofmann’s early effort was ruled out for offside after he completely missed his challenge near the halfway line.
Kieran Trippier – 6
Deployed at left-back due to a lack of available alternatives. Made an awkward start when he needlessly conceded a corner.
Kalvin Phillips – 6
Started energetically but his evening was cut short just 14 minutes in when he was forced off with a leg injury.
Declan Rice – 7
Another assured performance from a player who continues to grow in stature in an England shirt. He earned the highest of the England player ratings.
Mason Mount – 6
Used the ball intelligently but didn’t see enough of it, having just 25 touches before being replaced by Jack Grealish in the 71st minute.
Bukayo Saka – 6
Had a fine spell before the break, forcing a one-handed save from Neuer with a driven effort and then firing narrowly wide from further out.
Raheem Sterling – 5
Described as “hugely important” by Gareth Southgate ahead of kick-off but struggled to affect the game on his return to the starting line-up.
Harry Kane – 7
Lacked his usual cutting edge in open play, firing a glorious chance over from a Trippier corner in the first half and then failing to beat Neuer from Grealish’s cross.
