Noble aware of huge England v Germany rivalry

England U21 captain Mark Noble is aware of the massive rivalry between his nation and Germany ahead of tonight's European U21 Championship final.

"We're all English. When you get brought through the ranks from U-16s and U-21s to the senior team, whenever you play Germany it's always a massive game," the West Ham midfielder said.

"Everyone knows that - it's from the history we have between us. Even though it is a European Championship final, there is no doubt there will be that extra little incentive because it is Germany.

"We all do history in school. When you put an England shirt on and you play against the Germans you want to win.

"International rivalries are massive."
