Pretty lively game. We are definitely playing our part. Lofted-cheek looks a bit special

Same here. Both sides have had genuine chances. Stick Kane in the side and that’s our World Cup squad.. why not? The premadonas have had their chance. The youth in this team are a lot more exciting

The commentator just mentioned the last time we beat the number one team in the world (Germany are that now) was against Spain and the first three players he mentioned have all played for Fulham. Scotty, Bent and Andy Johnson

That was some Chelsea side that beat us (just) in that Youth Cup Final:
Loftus-Cheek, Andreas Cristensen, Izzy Brown, Dom Solanke, Jay Dasilva etc.

Of our boys, who played two fine games, I think only the two keepers and George Williams are still with us.

Germany looked the better team but we were always in the game and the defense looked solid.
Can't see how Loftus-Cheek can be left out of the side.

Well done England, thoroughly enjoyed it.
Loftus-Cheek top man, and a good team effort all round.

It was a very enjoyable game, I was impressed by Loftus-Cheek & Jordan Pickford.

I hope Loftus-Cheek retains his place. I recall when Glenn Hoddle made his debut and he was outstanding and scored a brilliant goal...but then was dropped by Bobby Robson.

Refreshing to watch an England side play like that.

Glen Hoddle as usual made a good point, that unlike in all the qualifying games, Germany did not come to defend which made it easier for us to play more entertaining stuff.

Thought Tammy A was excellent, what a prospect. Why did we not get him last season. The way we played on Friday bodes well, especially when we have Kane, Alli plus others to come back. Southgate will for once have players to choose from.

He hasn't been mentioned but thought that Maguire also played well.

I didn't see the game but how did the poppy business go? Were the opposing fans quiet for each others' anthems and was there any feedback about how Germany felt about wearing the poppies? Personally I think it would be nice if they were to adopt it as their own symbol of remembrance. Their men were lambs to the slaughter exactly the same.
