England were held to a 0-0 draw against Germany at Wembley on Friday evening.

Gareth Southgate was forced to make several bold calls with his team selection as a result of an injury crisis, with many senior players ruled out.

Jordan Pickford, Ruben Loftus-Cheek and Tammy Abraham were all handed their first ever starts for the England senior team. Joe Gomez and Jack Cork also came on to make their first-team bows for the country.

England produced a considerably impressive performance but were ultimately hindered by their lack of end product. Jamie Vardy came closest in the second half, when his header was well-saved by Marc-Andre Ter Stegen.

Germany came close on a few occasions though, with Leroy Sane striking the underside of the bar. Pickford was instrumental in helping England stay in the game, with some fine saves on his debut.

An entertaining contest between the sides finished 0-0, and there were certainly positive signs for Southgate and his men.
