Harry Kane wins draw for England against Germany as Tottenham star closes in on Wayne Rooney’s record and Jack Grealish converts Nations League clash

Harry Kane saved a 1-1 draw for England in their Nations League clash against Germany with a late penalty awarded by VAR.

The Three Lions captain reached 50 international goals, three shy of Wayne Rooney’s all-time record, with an 87th-minute penalty past Manuel Neuer.

England salvaged a late draw

Jonas Hofmann put the Germans in front, completing a smart move after a superb pass from Joshua Kimmich.

A frustrating England attack was bolstered by the introduction of Jack Grealish – and the breakthrough came when Kane was brought down by Nico Schlotterbeck.

The Tottenham striker made no mistakes after a penalty was awarded following a VAR review.

Gareth Southgate avoided back-to-back defeats for the first time since 2018 after the 1-0 loss to Hungary, as England had not gone two games without scoring since 2017.

For former Three Lions striker Dean Ashton, Grealish made the difference.

“There was no hangover for Grealish. He was absolutely brilliant,” Ashton said.

“So much intention, so direct, great bond with Sterling. What a difference he’s made since he arrived.

“There will be people asking why he doesn’t start because he transformed the game.

“But we can’t cancel the first stages, there was a real lack of quality from England.”
