England's men drew 3-3 with Germany in Nuremburg on Sunday in the second of their two matches against the Olympic and world champions.

The hosts took a 2-0 lead before two quick penalty corner goals from Matt Daly and a goal from Simon Egerton put England 3-2 up.

But Germany equalised to salvage a draw to add to their 2-0 win on Saturday.

England are preparing for the EuroHockey Nations Championships in August and December's Champions Trophy.

"There was a marked improvement from yesterday in today's match," said England Manager Pete Nicholson.

"Play was pretty even with chances at both ends and both keepers made good saves.

"The second half was a feisty affair which was good as we were very competitive."
