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

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

England qualified easily in a campaign that saw a managerial change and more than 40 players tried out in a whole host of different formations as Gareth Southgate continues to search for that winning formula that will finally end 51 years of hurt.

Tottenham trio Harry Kane, Harry Winks and Dele Alli all pulled out, as did Manchester City stars Raheem Sterling and Fabian Delph.

The depleted squad allows Southgate to field a line-up from a pool of youngsters including Tammy Abraham, Joe Gomez and Ruben Loftus-Cheek, who received their first call-ups to the senior squad.

'I have man-to-man discussions with them around where they are at and how much risk we want to take.

However, Southgate won't call up any new players from outside the England camp.

"I've really enjoyed the week. We'll take more from these games than any of the qualification games".

'The players are injured and can not play, ' Southgate told BBC Radio 5 live.

Southgate dismissed any talk of a club-versus-country row over players' fitness.

'I am not a manager who wants to reel players out until they break.

The first friendly in the build-up to Russian Federation 2018 could have been thrown off kilter by the withdrawal of seven players, yet a youthful Three Lions line-up took their chances to impress against the reigning world champions.
