Andros Townsend came closest for England as the Three Lions suffered a 1-0 friendly defeat against old rivals Germany at Wembley on Tuesday night.
The flying winger was in fine form again earning only his fourth cap for his country and lining-up alongside team-mate Kyle Walker.
The Spurs pair played the full 90 minutes down England's right and Andros almost grabbed a spectacular equaliser just before the hour mark.
Andros picked up the ball right of centre, drove at the German defence and then let rip from fully 30 yards - his effort cannoned back off the post with goalkeeper Roman Weidenfeller beaten.
Jermain Defoe remained an unused substitute as Per Mertesacker's first half heade proved enough for the visitors.
