But they responded in an exciting way, with goals from Luke Shaw and Mason Mount in a four-minute break, tying the game with England’s first ever goals on the ball in their last 5 games.
Harry Kane’s penalty in the 38th minute of the second half, following a Nico Schlotterbeck foul on Jude Bellingham, appeared to have given England a morale-boosting victory.
