GER 1-1 ENG: (+Pictures) Late Strike From Harry Kane Saves Sinking England And Player of the Match

A Frustrating opener against Hungary in the Nations League which saw Gareth Southgate lose by a goal to nil, such an incident nearly happened today against Germany but a converted penalty from Harry Kane prevent that from happening in the latter end of the match.

A tough test in the first half, settling the scores to a goalless draw but in favour of the Germans - such dominance continued in the second half, giving Borussia Monchengladbach star Jonas Hofmann the momentum of breaking the deadlock in the 50th minute off Joshua Kimmich open pass before Harry Kane equalizing through a penalty spot in the 88th minute as Borussia Dortmund new boy Nico Schlotterbeck committed a push foul on him inside the 18-yard box. Sent Manuel Neuer on the wrong side of the post, England squared up in a match that was completely out of their hands.

In their tenth meeting, Germany and England clocked their third draw - in a group, placing one above the other [Germany in the 3rd position and England occupying the 4th position].

At the end of the whistle as a tradition in football where a player is honoured as the player of the match, Borussia Dortmund Jude Bellingham emerged with 85.7% pass accuracy, 7 tackles, 3 interceptions, 6 successful long balls, 9 won ground duels and a rating of 7.6 - according to sofa score statistics.

Trending stats: Harry Kane scored his 50th international goal today in 71 appearances.
