    British Army 1-3 German Bundeswehr

    And that's half-time after a very entertaining first 45 minutes.

    The Germans looked almost out of sight after three goals in 12 minutes, but Rob Farkins has kept them in it with that header in stoppage time.

  2. GOAL: British Army 1-3 German Bundeswehr

    Rob Farkins (45+1 mins)

    And there is the goal that gives the Army some hope!

    Lovely worked free-kick sent in long from just inside the German half and skipper Rob Farkins is there to rise above the defence at the back post to head it home from six yards out.

    That's lifted the City Ground crowd a bit.

  3. Post update

    British Army 0-3 German Bundeswehr

    So three goals in the space of 12 minutes from the Germans have put them in complete control here.

    Can the Army keep themselves in this one with less than five minutes until half-time?

  4. GOAL: British Army 0-3 German Bundeswehr

    Yannick Wolf (36 mins)

    No mistake this time from Yannick Wolf and the Germans are 3-0 ahead.

    A quickly worked free-kick on the right catches the Army defence napping and then Niklas Tille's cross finds Wolf unmarked at the near post with a powerful header into the goal.

    3-0 celly
  5. Post update

    British Army 0-2 German Bundeswehr

    Confidence in abundance now for the Germans after their second goal.

    Yannick Wolf is through on goal after stealing the ball on the break and with a chance for a one-on-one, he tries to go too cute and chip it in but it's a long way wide with the finish.

    Could've easily have been 3-0 with still 10 minutes until the break.

  6. GOAL: British Army 0-2 German Bundeswehr

    Eric Schaaf (31 mins)

    Double delight now for the Germans and an absolutely beautifully worked goal for their second.

    Eric Schaaf, who has been the stand-out performer in this match so far, weaves a lovely one-two on the edge of the Army box and then smashes a left-footed shot into the top corner from about 25 yards out.

  7. Post update

    British Army 0-1 German Bundeswehr

    The Army looking for a response then after falling behind to Alexander Hess' goal.

    Centre-back Ryan Paddock stands over a free-kick 30 yards out but can't direct that anywhere near the target.

  8. GOAL: British Army 0-1 German Bundeswehr

    Alexander Hess (24 mins)

    And the Germans break the deadlock!

    Superb reaction finish inside the British penalty box from Alexander Hess after the Army failed to clear a corner at the near post.

    The ball landed nicely into the captain's path for him to pounce and fire that past British keeper Luke Cairney, who had no chance.


    British Army 0-0 German Bundeswehr

    Kevin Friend probably wasn't anticipating brandishing some yellow cards tonight but he had no choice there as German winger Holger Wulff went in very exuberantly into a 50/50 challenge.

    That had a a few people grimmacing in the City Ground.


    British Army 0-0 German Bundeswehr

    Quarter of an hour gone and the Germans certainly look confident on the break.

    Eric Schaaf looks a handful in the midfield and then the Germans rattle the underside of the crossbar from a neatly-worked short corner.

    Army keeper Luke Cairney does well to get across to that effort from Artur Zielke that almost crept in at the near post.

  11. 'An honour' to host Remembrance Games

    Falklands veteran and former footballer Phil Stant says it is an "honour" that Nottingham will host two special Games of Remembrance to mark 100 years since the end of World War One.

    Nottingham to host Remembrance Games

    Nottingham Forest and Notts County will host matches of remembrance between British and German army teams in the lead up to Armistice Day.

    Staging the Games of Remembrance to mark 100 years since the end of the Great War is an "honour" for Nottingham.

    British Army 0-0 German Bundeswehr

    First 10 minutes played and the British Army have forced a couple of corners and caused a few alarms in the German defence.

    Bundeswehr keeper Sven Steingraeber is awarded a free-kick by Kevin Friend after a bit too much pressure form Army striker Callum Wilkinson in the air.

  14. Post update

    British Army 0-0 German Bundeswehr

    Five minutes played and the first real chance to the Germans as an opportunity opens up with a ball over the top.

    Not the most definitive of touches though from forward Sgt Erico Karg to get it past keeper Luke Cairney in the British Army goal.

  15. KICK-OFF

    British Army 0-0 German Bundeswehr

    Football League referee Kevin Friend is our man in the middle for this match at the City Ground.

    The man from nearby Leicestershire blows his whistle and gets this men's match under way with the British Army in red shirts and the German Bundeswehr in white shirts.

    And the Germans kick-off shooting towards the Trent End in this first half....

  17. Remembering Leicester

    Last post

    As well as tributes to mark the Armistice centenary before kick-off, there will also be a minute's applause in tribute to the five people who lost their lives when Leicester City owner Vichai Srivaddhanaprabha's helicopter crashed outside the King Power Stadium on 27 October.

  18. Presentation party and Anthems

    Teams out

    Nottingham Forest legend John McGovern is part of the presentation party meeting both sides before the National Anthems.

  19. A top team for the big occasion

    Former England, Nottingham Forest and Tottenham midfelder Steve Hodge is part of the BBC commentary team for tonight's match.

    Hodge, who won 24 caps and played in the World Cup quarter-final against Argentina in 1986 (let's not dwell on the outcome of that game), is working alongside BBC Radio Nottingham's Colin Fray so we couldn't be in safer hands.

    Our coverage is now live at the top of this page.
