England Women smashed their attendance record with 77,768 at Wembley Stadium but Germany won the friendly 2-1 with a late goal.

Alexandra Popp headed Germany in to a ninth-minute elad from Kathrin Hendrich’s cross, Lena Oberdorf earlier having seen Mary Earps touch her strike onto the crossbar.

Sara Doorsoun got away with just a yellow card for a very high tackle on Beth Mead, who was back on her feet to win a penalty from Ellen White’s sharp piece of play.

However, Merle Frohms got a boot to Nikita Parris’s penalty kick and turned it over the top.

The Lionesses were level on 44 minutes, Keira Walsh’s ball finished off with a fine first-time finish by Ellen White.

Lina Magull had a goal ruled out for offside on 65 minutes after Earps had spilled a strike by Klara Buhl.

But it was Buhl who hit the winner for Germany in the penultimate minute of the ninety.
