Looking for an England vs Germany live stream? You're in the right place – FourFourTwo has all the info you need. 

England are left playing for pride against old rivals Germany on the final day of Nations League action, after their relegation to League B was confirmed last week.

A 1-0 defeat in Italy on Friday sealed the Three Lions’ fate with a game to spare and continued a concerning recent run of form.

Gareth Southgate’s side are winless in five Group A3 matches, picking up just two points in that time.

With World Cup 2022 (opens in new tab) just around the corner, the boss will be hoping to see a turnaround at Wembley to restore some confidence.

England have scored just one goal in their last five matches, a late Harry Kane penalty that earned a 1-1 draw in their first meeting with Germany.

The Germans also have nothing left to play for on the final day.

Hansi Flick’s side suffered a shock 1-0 defeat at home to Hungary on Friday and the best they can now hope for is a second-place finish.

Germany are in a similar rut to England; they’ve won just one of their last six games, although the defeat last week was their first since losing to Southgate’s side in the last 16 at Euro 2020 last summer.

Trent Alexander-Arnold, Fikayo Tomori, James Ward-Prowse and Jarrod Bowen were left out of Southgate’s England squad (opens in new tab) for the match.

Ivan Toney is on the list though, and could earn his first England cap.

The Germany squad (opens in new tab) has been depleted because of a variety of issues; Covid-positive duo Manuel Neuer and Leon Goretzka miss out, while Julian Brandt is ill and Antonio Rudiger is suspended.

VPN guide

Use a VPN to watch Nations League football from outside your country

If you’re out of the country for a round of Premier League fixtures, then annoyingly your domestic on-demand services won’t work – the broadcaster knows where you are because of your IP address (boo!). You'll be blocked from watching it, which is not ideal if you’ve paid up for a subscription and still want to catch the action without resorting to illegal feeds you’ve found on Reddit.

But assistance is on hand. To get around that, all you have to do is get a Virtual Private Network (VPN), assuming it complies with your broadcaster’s T&Cs. A VPN creates a private connection between your device and t'internet, meaning the service can’t work out where you are and won't automatically block the service you've paid for. All the info going between is entirely encrypted – and that's a result.

There are plenty of good-value options out there, including:
