Eric Dier is mobbed by England side after scoring the winning goal
THREE LIONS VICTORY! GERMANY 2-3 ENGLAND @ OLYMPIASTADION BERLIN
Germany 2-3 England
The Three Lions came from being 2-0 behind in the second half to earn a stunning victory against world champions Germany under the leadership of manager Rod Hodson and England’s captain for the night, Gary Cahill, with goals from Jamie Vardy, Harry Kane, and Eric Dier. Toni Kroos and Mario Gomez scored Germany’s two goals.
Roy Hodgson enjoyed his best night as England boss and said this comeback may inspire his side to continue winning on the road to Marseille France.
"It certainly won't do it any harm, but it's a friendly match," he said when asked about the added belief the players can take,” remarked Hodson. "We must be careful attaching too much importance on it. Had we lost the game 3-2, and the Germans had scored late on, I wouldn't have been sitting here bitterly disappointed.
"I would still have been happy with the way the team approached the game and the progress the young players are making,” continued Hodson. "We had a lot of debutants and inexperienced players out there. It's a good step forward, a moment of progression in the work we are doing with them, but we can still do things better. We have four more friendly games and two and a half months of work before we play the game that really will count, against Russia in Marseille.
"Those games in the autumn, Spain away and France at home, I thought then that if we could keep this group together and engender the right spirit and belief to have the confidence to go out and play their way out of trouble, we've got some players who could be very interesting for England in the future.
"What worries me now is that, while enjoying this night and admitting it's my best with England so far, I'm worried a lot of the criticisms we've had in the past will be forgotten and we'll be lifted up. This is a team that is definitely a work in progress.
Roy Hodson, manager England National Team

Joachim Low, manager Germany National Team
Germany boss Joachim Low was upset with the result, but admitted England may have deserved the win.
"All in all I can say it is absolutely annoying for a coach to see his team squander a 2-0 lead," said Low after the match. "I think, having lost this game it is not entirely undeserved, even when we were 2-0 up we weren't as in control as I would like us to be, we had problems in our structure and didn't create too many chances - so England in a way deserved to win.
"if you ask me for conclusions to be drawn from this game there are some. This was a friendly match and they are all about showing us areas that need improvement and to be worked on."
