The Three Lions who were the better side had the first attempt on goal as Raheem Sterling's shot was pammed away by Manuel Neuer from 20-yards out.

Timo Werner also had his opportunity to score with his left foot but Jordan Pickford was quick to come out and make the save.

England looked the likelier team to find the back of the net in the second half but had to wait until the 75th minute to break the deadlock.

Jack Grealish began the move down the left as he found Luke Shaw who delivered a low cross to Sterling to tap home a simple finish and made it 1-0.

Five minutes later, Thomas Muller had a one-on-one chance with Pickford but the Bayern Munich striker out the ball just wide.

Then in the 86th minute, Harry Kane made it 2-0 in a similar fashion to the first goal as he leaned to head home from Grealish assist.
