Gareth Southgate says England 'not at the same stage' as Germany

Gareth Southgate says England 'not at the same stage' as Germany”

Neither England nor Confederations Cup champions Germany are cutting corners when it comes to the calibre of the teams they will face in the build-up to the World Cup.

"I think England, like us, have good players in the background, when Harry Kane drops out there is still a Jamie Vardy, who is very hard to defend against", said Suele. I want to experiment already. We were needing something a little bit different for these games, so I had a good chat with Sean Dyche as well about Jack and he's delighted with what he's doing and he's a great character who has worked with a lot of the squad in the past.

Nevertheless, Southgate always meant to use Friday's game - and Tuesday's meeting with Brazil - to test his options with a view to next year's World Cup in Russian Federation. "With the tournament in mind I want to see not only those players who play regularly".

Midfielders Ilkay Gundogan and Mario Goetze are hoping to prove themselves worthy of a berth in Germany coach Joachim Loew's World Cup squad after long spells on the sidelines.

RB Leipzig full-back Marcel Halstenberg will make his debut in the starting line-up just a year after making his first Bundesliga appearance.

"2017 has already played a major role in the nomination decision and as we only have two worldwide matches ahead of the World Cup we are looking particularly hard at the performances that players bring to their clubs".

Low travels to England without Bayern Munich's Manuel Neuer, who is out until the new year with a fractured foot, but has no worries about his first-choice goalkeeper being ready for the World Cup.

Real Madrid midfielder Kroos has shaken off a gastrointestinal problem and took a light part in training in Berlin on Thursday before the Germans flew to London.

"We will have to see how it develops". It could be that he is rested.

"He plays every three days at the highest level and if he does not feel ok, it is quite conceivable that I let him rest".

Southgate's side sealed their place at the 2018 World Cup in Russian Federation by topping their qualification group with eight wins and two draws from their 10 matches played.

Gotze had broken into the national team as a 19-year-old when he scored his first worldwide goal in a friendly win at home to Brazil in 2011.
