Aidy Boothroyd’s England Under-21 side saw their unbeaten run come crashing to a halt courtesy of a stoppage-time winner from Germany.
The Young Lions failed to clear a corner and Benjamin Henrichs played a cute cross into Felix Uduokhai, who took a touch and scored.
After going 19 games unbeaten, England looked set to make it 20 after Dominic Solanke cancelled out Mahmoud Dahoud’s stunning touch and volley in the first half.
However, despite looking direct and dangerous on the break, the youngsters were too loose in midfield and the Germans decisively slick when it counted.
With Euro 2019 slowly but surely creeping up, Boothroyd will have to re-gather his troops and use the defeat as a learning curve ahead of the tournament in Italy.
