My name is Tyler; I am a 17-year-old from Tottenham, north London.
I have been given this opportunity to be in the press box and write up this report for the England v Germany game through my college and the FA.
- Friday 10 November

Upon hearing of the opportunity to partake in such an event, I was extremely excited to be involved as I played football myself from a very young age and Wembley in general is a fantastic stadium with an amazing atmosphere.
My experience throughout the day has been an exciting one. I have travelled with some of the fans and walked to the stadium with some of the fans, which was an overwhelming and immersive experience.
After meeting some of the FA’s staff, they helped make the process much more comfortable and helped me become well acquitted in the environment, which was being a member of the press for the evening.
Onto the game itself: it was a fast paced, end-to-end and thrilling game even though it finished 0-0.
There were a number of chances with both teams missing out on scoring easy, almost un-missable opportunities.
The player that had caught my eye this game was Ruben Loftus-Cheek, the central midfielder on loan at Crystal Palace from Chelsea.
He looked comfortable throughout the whole game, whether it was on the ball leading the counter attack or pulling out some trickery and nutmegging two German defenders in the first half.
