Arsenal attacker Bukayo Saka came off the England bench to spark the team to life and help overturn a two-goal deficit in the last quarter of the UEFA Nations League clash with four-time world champions Germany.
In the UEFA Nations League this season, England and Germany are in Group A3 alongside Hungary and Italy. Ahead of their meeting on Monday, England and Germany already knew that the outcome of the game won’t change their respective position on the group table. England have already sealed last place and relegation to League B has already been confirmed, while third place has been sealed for Germany.
Germany were the better team in the first half, but the four-time world champions could not add end result to their dominance as the half ended without a goal. IlkayGundogan (penalty) and Kai Havertz scored in the second half to give the Germans a 2-0 lead. England manager Gareth Southgate had subbed on Arsenal star Bukayo Saka and Chelsea star Mason Mount by the time Germany doubled their lead on 67 minutes. Saka made an instant impact as he was involved in all three England goals from the likes of Luke Shaw, the aforementioned Mount and Harry Kane (penalty) for a 3-2 lead. Chelsea attacker Havertz then scored the equaliser for his team to secure a point from the game via a 3-3 draw.
