The Three Lions face Germany at Bayern Munich's Allianz Arena in the second match of their Nations League campaign, with more than 4,500 away supporters expected to descend on the Bavarian city.

The FA has been working with local police in an effort to limit disorder, with England already serving a ban for the unruly scenes at the Euro 2020 final. Their upcoming clash with Italy is set to be played behind closed doors, while a second stadium ban will be triggered if there are any more issues especially if seven England Fans are arrested again.

England manager Gareth Southgate had urged travelling fans to behave in the build-up to the match, but it seems his words have been ignored by a minority.

Seven England supporters were arrested on Monday, including three for making a Nazi salute, two for inciting the police, one for using a flare indoors and one other for urinating in a public space.

"Staff are working on things detracting from the main part of their job," Southgate had said at the weekend.

"You're embarrassed when you hear about it, because you know it's a representation of your country, in the same way there's been a brilliant representation of that across the world in the last couple of days .

We can only give the correct messages, then you've got to rely on people behaving.

"We know because of the landscape at the moment that the spotlight is going to be on so we all want to be coming away talking about a brilliant night. We can only ask that's what our supporters deliver."

"According to the BBC, some England fans have bought tickets in the home section of the Allianz Arena, with the visiting allocation just 3,500, while others will have travelled without tickets.
