Victories over Germany are treasured almost as highly as trophies by England fans, and the 5-1 thrashing that marked the Three Lions' most recent clash with Die Mannschaft in Munich remains one of the sweetest of all. Gareth Southgate was an unused substitute on that occasion, and 19 years later he returns to Bavaria to face the German fury. Read on to find out how to watch a Germany vs England live stream and see the 2022 Nations League online today, no matter where you are in the world - including ways to watch the game absolutely FREE.
The team news is in, and Hansi Flick and Southgate have taken two very different approaches with their lineups. Flick has gone experimental, handing youngsters Nico Schlotterbeck, David Raum and Jamal Musiala an opportunity to stake their claims for regular starting roles. There's a sprinkle of experience in there too though, with Thomas Müller, Ilkay Gundogan and Antonio Rüdiger forming the spine of team.
England, by contrast, have opted to go with experience, and with Kalvin Phillips and Declan Rice sitting in front of a four-man defence, there's more than an element of caution about Southgate's selection. Bukayo Saka and Raheem Sterling will be expected to provide thrust from the flanks, with Harry Kane the lone man up front.

The 5-1 home soil mauling is regarded as one of the most embarrassing in Germany's history, and though they've beaten England four times since then, a 2-0 defeat in the last 16 of last summer's Euros makes this a big moment for Flick's side. The rebuild is going well, but Germany are yet to claim a statement result under their new coach.
Germany’s 1-1 draw in Italy at the weekend was a high-octane, quality affair – everything that England's 1-0 defeat to Hungary was not. It looked like the perfect chance for Southgate to experiment with his team, but it was one of those days when none of it worked.
Set-pieces are a key weapon for England but the quality of deliveries was abysmal, and the team was unable to create anything of note from open play. England's backline also has questions to answer. Having struggled to handle the relatively static Adam Szalai, they'll be relieved that Leroy Sané and Serge Gnabry are starting on the bench, but given the chance their pace and flair could cause havoc.
