Venue: Wembley Stadium, Wembley, London, capacity 79,045.
Attendance: 76,377.
Goals: Germany - Dieter Hamann, 13th min. Scholes fouls Ballack just over 30 yards out and, while England have not assembled a wall, Dietmar Hamann fires in a shot which bounces in front of Seaman and into the net off his gloves to make it England 0-1 Germany.
Cautions: England - Andrew Cole, 24th min. for a crude tackle from behind on Scholl.
Germany - Michael Ballack, 52nd min.
Germany - Jens Nowotny, 82nd min.
