Southgate calls for goals

England manager Gareth Southgate has called on more of his attacking players to start scoring ahead of their Nations League clash with Germany tonight.

The Three Lions will look to bounce back in Munich after Saturday’s shock 1-0 defeat to Hungary.

Only Harry Kane (49) and Raheem Sterling (19) have more than 10 goals in an England shirt out of the current squad — with defender Harry Maguire the nearest challenger on seven.

Southgate said: "What is clear is that in terms of goals, we are heavily reliant on Raheem and Harry.

"There are opportunities for others to step into that fold, because the squad we have got with us, I think Harry Maguire is the next in terms of goals scored.

"We do need those attacking players in particular to step forward and start to give us threats from other areas.

"Bukayo Saka has started to do that and Mason Mount has got the odd goal, but that is the challenge now for this whole group."

Seven arrested in Munich

Seven England fans were arrested in Munich yesterday and overnight ahead of tonight’s game with Germany, UK police have announced.

Sky Sports say the arrests were related to public order offences and abusing German police.

They are described by UK police as primarily alcohol-fuelled anti-social behaviour rather than widespread violence.

It comes after Three Lions boss Southgate urged supporters to behave themselves ahead of the clash at the Allianz Area, admitting pre-match issues will have a negative impact on his camp.

It is the first time since the coronavirus lockdown in 2020 that England will have a significant number of travelling supporters for a game, while it is the pair’s first meeting in Munich since the Three Lions’ famous 5-1 victory in 2001.

England have been given an allocation of 3,466 for the fixture, though it is expected many more have purchased tickets in the home sections of the stadium.

Manchester City defender Alex Greenwood has left England’s training camp after testing positive for coronavirus.

The 28-year-old will be monitored with a view to returning ahead of England’s Euro 2022 warm-up game with Belgium on June 16.

The Lionesses are training in the Netherlands during preparations for the tournament, which kicks off with their Group A opener against Austria at Old Trafford on July 6.

They will also face friendlies against Netherlands and Switzerland before heading back to home soil.

England manager Sarina Weigman is also not with the squad because of a "close family bereavement".

Liverpool forward Mohamed Salah will miss Egypt’s game against Ethiopa on Thursday after picking up a strain.

The 29-year-old played the full 90 minutes of the Pharoahs’ 1-0 win over Guinea on Sunday but has since undergone tests that reveal a minor problem.

He will now sit out their Africa Cup of Nations qualifier on Thursday to allow time to recover.

A statement from the Egyptian FA read: "The technical staff of the Egyptian national football team, led by manager Ehab Galal, have decided to rest Mohamed Salah for the Ethiopia match scheduled for June 9 after he underwent scans that proved the presence of a slight strain."
