Harry Kane penalty rescues Nations League point for England in Germany

The Guardian says the Nations League campaign appeared to be turning into a headache for Gareth Southgate and England. The idea had been to show a response to Saturday’s flat 1-0 loss in Hungary but England trailed to Jonas Hofmann’s goal early in the second half and they had fired only in fits and starts. It was Germany who were showing the assurance in possession, examining Southgate’s four-man backline and making it look wobbly.

And yet England found a way back, the final 20 minutes coming to feel like a golden period for them, the chances coming in increasing volume and clarity. The frustration would have been intense, the questions plentiful, had another tie slipped away from them.

But Harry Kane – who else? – was not in the mood for the soul-searching inquest. He had been denied by Manuel Neuer as England turned the screw, arriving to meet a low cross from the substitute Jack Grealish and watching the goalkeeper save with his legs. Grealish made a significant impact upon his 72nd-minute introduction, bringing energy and incision off the left.
