International friendlies are hard to get very excited about, unless it involves a big team to deliver some proper competition. England have that tonight, as they travel to Dortmund’s Signal Iduna Park to take on Germany (kick-off 7.45pm).

This game ensures there’s a bit of sharpness for the 2018 World Cup qualifiers, which start on Friday and go through the weekend.

Goalkeeper Joe Hart is likely to be reintroduced after playing for Italian club Torino this season – but he’ll have to be at his best to outshine the man between the opposing sticks, with German No 1 Manuel Neuer still regarded as the best in the world.
