Norwich City winger Nathan Redmond was on target as England Under-21s twice came from behind to beat their German counterparts 3-2 on Monday night.
Redmond scored England's second equaliser 11 minutes from time in a thrilling encounter in front of a crowd of 30,178 at the Riverside Stadium. Gareth Southgate's men then snatched victory when Southampton's James Ward-Prowse added a third two minutes later.
The visitors took the lead on 15 minutes when Philipp Hofmann controlled and swivelled smartly to fire past helpless keeper Jonathan Bond. But Jesse Lingard converted Carl Jenkinson's cross to level just after the half hour mark.
Germany restored their lead within five minutes of the restart when Hofmann slid in to meet half-time substitute Serge Gnabry's cross.
The home side drew level when substitute Alex Pritchard fed Redmond and his shot flew past the keeper with the help of a slight deflection.
Then Ward-Prowse kept a cool head when presented with a chance to win it from 12 yards.
