In Friday's international friendly, England and Germany showed heartwarming respect for Remembrance Day as both sides wore poppies on their respective kits.

Although the game finished 0-0, seeing the two European giants - who are often considered international rivals - with poppies on their shirts was a proud moment for many football fans across the country.

For one England player in particular, being able to wear a poppy on his national team kit was also a huge source of pride. Hours before kick-off, Leicester City striker Jamie Vardy took to Twitter to say how proud he was to wear a poppy for the international friendly.

"We want to get some decent results and the get the consistency going, and then take it into Russia. That would be an added bonus," Vardy said prior to England's match with Germany, as reported by GiveMeSport.

"I don’t think you can call any match a friendly. We have made sure we are playing against the best teams in the world and we want to prove ourselves to show what we are all about, so it will be good competition for the lads and hopefully we will get the results."

England will now get ready to face Brazil in their second friendly of the international break. The two sides will meet at Wembley on Tuesday, Brazil coming into the tie off the back of a 3-1 victory over Japan at the Grand Stade Lille Métropole.
