It was a difficult night for the Three Lions in Munich after Jonas Hofmann scored early in the second half.
German pressure made a second for the hosts seem more likely than a leveler, but England retired in the game with chances falling for Kane and Raheem Sterling.
With just minutes remaining, Kane buried a penalty won by the striker after a VAR review to secure the draw.
here’s how Gareth Southgate‘s rated men in Munich…
Jordan Pickford – 5
Erratic kicking and handling. You have a hand on goal but beaten by the power.
Kyle Walker – 5
Struggled to deal with Musiala’s runs inside and seemed unsettled by the return at right-back, which is odd considering he plays there every week. Worst performance in an England shirt for some time.
John Stones – 6
England’s most composed back line against the intense German press.
Harry Maguire – 5
Weak against Havertz for Germany’s disallowed goal, then dragged out of position for Hoffman’s strike. In this form, his place in a back four is even harder to justify than in a three, when ball-carrying skills at least come into play.
Kieran Trippier – 6
Picked at left-back out of necessity, but it was another night where the need for a natural in the position was underlined.
Declan Rice – 7
Standards slipped against Hungary but not here. Excellent in midfield, especially as Phillips’ early departure quickly changed the balance of the pairing.
Kalvin Phillips – N/A
Took a bad hit to the thigh in an early collision. I tried to scare him away but I could barely walk.
Mason mount – 5
Tested Neuer from the range when he could have slipped Sterling. Squeezing largely ineffective.
Bukayo Saka – 5
Virtually anonymous for 45 minutes, then came alive with two decent efforts in first-half stoppage time. Poor again after the break.
Rahim Sterling – 6
Won his 75th cap and tried to bring the game back to Germany, but was relatively quiet when illness returned until the arrival of Grealish brought about a change inside and a clever bond.
Harry Kane – 7
Falling deep is often a source of frustration, but England needed them here to help gain a foothold. Missed two big chances but did a superb late kick for England’s 50th goal.
Jude Bellingham (Phillips 14′) – 6
Given an unexpected early opportunity by Phillips’ injury. I didn’t immediately catch it, but I created a few dangerous situations winning the ball high and impressed even more as the game progressed.
Jack Grealish (Mount 73′) – 7
The introduction immediately sparked England’s best spell in the second half. Posed on two terrific chances for Kane and will surely start against Italy.
Jarrod Bowen (Saka 80′) – 6
Another one that made an impact, with a low cross somehow staying out.
Unused: Pope, Ramsdale, James, Guehi, Coady, Alexander-Arnold, Ward-Prowse, Gallagher, Abraham
