Southgate asking for goals

England manager Gareth Southgate has called for more of his attacking players to start scoring ahead of their Nations League clash with Germany tonight.

The Three Lions will be looking to bounce back in Munich from Saturday’s shock 1-0 loss to Hungary.

Only Harry Kane (49) and Raheem Sterling (19) have more than 10 goals in a current team England shirt – with defender Harry Maguire the closest challenger in seven.

Southgate said: “What is clear is that in terms of goals we are heavily reliant on Raheem and Harry.

“There are opportunities for others to step into that fold, because the team we have with us, I think Harry Maguire is next in terms of goalscoring.

“We need those attacking players in particular to come forward and start threatening us from other areas.

“Bukayo Saka started doing it and Mason Mount scored a weird goal, but that’s the challenge now for this whole group.”

Seven arrested in Munich

Seven England fans were arrested in Munich yesterday and on the night before tonight’s game against Germany, British police have said.

Sky Sports claim the arrests were linked to public order and abuse by German police.

They are described by British police as alcohol-fueled antisocial behavior rather than widespread violence.

It comes after Three Lions boss Southgate urged fans to behave ahead of the clash in the Allianz area, admitting pre-match issues will negatively impact his side.

It is the first time since the coronavirus lockdown in 2020 that England will have a significant number of traveling supporters for a match, as it is the duo’s first meeting in Munich since the famous 5-1 win of the Three Lions in 2001.

England received an allocation of 3,466 for the match, although many more are expected to have purchased tickets from locals at the stadium.
