Germany and England Meet in Dortmund

Germany will host England tonight in an international friendly at Dortmund’s Signa Iduna Park.

England manager Gareth Southgate is expected to experiment with a three-man defensive system, with Burnley’s Michael Keane set to make his debut alongside Chris Smalling and captain, Gary Cahill.

England are without regular captain Wayne Rooney against the 2014 world champions, while Harry Kane and Daniel Sturridge miss out through injury, with Leicester forward, Jamie Vardy expected to lead the line.

The fixture is Southgate’s first since being appointed on a permanent basis in November, following a four-game spell as caretaker which brought two wins and two draws.

Former Arsenal attacker Lukas Podolski will captain Germany as he wins his 130th and final cap, but Mesut Ozil, Julian Draxler, Mario Gomez and Manuel Neuer are all injured.
