Match No. 951 - Saturday, 26th March 2016, 8:45pm

  • "...Toni Kroos' long-range shot deceiving keeper Jack Butland...Dier, uncharacteristically, had failed to close down Kroos" Toni Kroos, 43' 42:11
  • "Sami Khedira’s chipped pass to set up Germany’s second goal was weighted beautifully but Hodgson will have noted the way Gómez drifted in between Gary Cahill and Clyne to direct his header past Fraser Forster, Butland’s replacement." Mario Gómez, 57' 56:24

  • "England desperately needed a quick response and three minutes later Kane changed the complexion of the match with an expertly taken goal. A corner had dropped nearby but Kane had to show great tenacity and skill to take control, elude two opponents with a wonderful turn and then drive a diagonal shot into the far corner." Harry Kane4th of 63 goals. Right-footed from 12 yards., 61' 60:06
  • Assist: Nathaniel Clyne. "Vardy’s goal, in particular, was a piece of improvisational brilliance to flick in Nathaniel Clyne’s right-wing cross, at high speed, from behind his standing leg and on the half-volley. Vardy had been on the pitch only two minutes and when that made it 2-2 it was thrilling to see the way England wanted more." Jamie Vardy1st of 7 goals. Right-footed from 7 yards., 74' 73:42
  • Assist: Jordan Henderson. "... Eric Dier powered home an injury-time header from Jordan Henderson's corner." Eric Dier1st of 3 goals. Header from 8 yards., 90'+1'90:35

Notes

  • Goalscoring RecordFirst time in 20 years that England have come back from two goals down to win. Last time was against Italy in 1976.
  • Player Injury"...the night was an ordeal for Jack Butland, who was in tears as he left the pitch on a stretcher. Butland had twisted his ankle making a straightforward catch seem unnecessarily complicated [40:32] and his injury helped to explain why Kroos’s swerving shot beat him at his near post [42:11]."
