Comments

Get your poppies out, lads. The Germans are coming to Wembley, and they’re armed to the teeth with world-class players. Die Mannschaft, as they’re never called in Germany, haven’t lost at the ‘Home of Football’ since 1975, and, judging by the two teams’ respective lineups, that won’t be changing any time soon.

This fixture has produced some thrillers over the years, most notably in ’66 and ’96. But how many stars of the Anglo-German rivalry can you recognise? All of the below have taken part in games between these old foes.
