England lose consecutive games at Wembley for first time since 1977

England lost back-to-back matches at Wembley for the first time since 1977.

Following on from when Alexis Sanchez took the Three Lions apart, England needed to win against Germany to avoid the 1977 record in the Football Association’s 150th anniversary.

However, Arsenal defender Per Mertesacker scored the only goal of the game to secure victory for the Germans. Even though Germany fielded a ‘B’ team, leaving out players like Mezut Ozil, Manuel Neuer and Phillip Lahm.

Joe Hart returned as goalkeeper for the match after being rested against Chile. The Manchester City shot-stopper, who has had a hard time at club Manchester City, played very well and probably re-secured his place as England’s no.1.

Joe Hart returned in the game and was probably England’s best player.
