When England and Germany met a year ago at Euro 2020, it was Gareth Southgate’s side who triumphed 2-0, en route to their run to the final.

This time around there’s rather less at stake and it’s arguable that both sets of players will be more concerned with playing out their final requirements before a well-earned break, rather than truly going all-out for victory.

Here’s everything you need to know before today’s clash.
