While the Three Lions suffered a chastening 1-0 defeat to Hungary, Italy held Germany to a 1-1 draw despite failing to qualify for the World Cup later this year.
When England and Germany met a year ago in the last-16 at Euro 2020, it was Gareth Southgate’s side who triumphed 2-0, on their run all the way to the final.
This time around there’s rather less at stake but Harry Kane remains four goals short of Wayne Rooney and the all-time England scoring record, while elsewhere players on both sides will be keen to stake a claim for a World Cup place.
Southgate has described Germany as ‘still the benchmark’ ahead of their UEFA Nations League match on Tuesday night.
Germany have a proud history when it comes to major tournaments, winning the FIFA World Cup and UEFA European Championships a combined seven times and reaching another seven finals.
Southgate’s side beat Germany in the knockout stages on their way to the EURO 2020 Final last summer but the defeat to Italy was only the Three Lions’ second major final.
And Southgate said: “For me, Germany and Brazil are still the benchmark in terms of countries that have regularly and consistently won tournaments.
“Even when everyone talks about the 5-1 here [in 2001], they ended up in the World Cup final on the back of that qualifying campaign.
"So you have to respect what they are and where they are as a footballing country. We have to try and replicate that and instil that mentality.
