    British Army 0-0 German Bundeswehr

    Now the "home" side show their hand at last. Olivia Dixon has the first effort on goal before Heather Mearns drags a shot wide.

    That's much better from the Brits.

    Penalty box

    Penalty-box pinball from a corner comes to nothing for the Germans, moments after British keeper Jess Horsley punches a dangerous cross-shot clear.

    Horsley then has to make another good low diving stop. The Germans are undoubtedly on top.

    The crowd are enjoying it. Lots and lots of school children making lots and lots of noise.

    British Army 0-0 German Bundeswehr

    The first threat on goal comes for the Germans, but a sliced clearance by defender Mandy Kidd leads to nothing.

    It's the away side who are establishing control and finding a bit of space.

    British Army 0-0 German Bundeswehr

    It's been a bit nervy so far. The British side, who are looking resplendent in World Cup-winning red, seem to be settling though.

    The anxiety is understandable on such a big occasion.

  6. A top team for the big occasion

    Former England, Nottingham Forest and Tottenham midfelder Steve Hodge is part of the BBC commentary team for both matches today.

    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.

    Hodge is very much looking forward to it: "Fixtures against Germany are wonderful occasions and this will be no exception.

    "The matches are a fitting tribute at a particularly poignant time, just days before the 100th Armistice Day."


    British Army 0-0 German Bundeswehr

    We've completed the formalities, had the respect handshakes and, after a minute's applause for the five people who died in the tragic helicopter crash at Leicester City, we are under way.

    It's a lovely sunny day.

    The German side, in white, get us under way.

    Education forms a vital part of the event and there all sorts of interesting information and projects available for schools and teachers on the Games of Remembrance website

    Have a look.

    More than 6,000 tickets have been snaffled by local schools for the women's match at Meadow Lane. The weather is looking good. It's bright and sunny and a bit nippy but very pleasant. It should help the walk-ups so do get along if you can.

  12. What is it?

    The Games of Remembrance are two games of football to commemorate and mark 100 years since the end of World War One. The project is also set up to educate young people on the impact of the war and the effect it had on society today.

    The British Army Football Association will host the German Bundeswehr in two matches across the day.

    The women's match, at Notts County's Meadow Lane, will commence proceedings from 12:00 GMT, before the men take centre stage across the River Trent at Nottingham Forest's City Ground from 19:00 GMT.

    Both matches will be available by using the play button at the top of this page.

    Games of Remembrance

    Welcome along to the first part of our football double header.

    It's a bit different today. But it's guaranteed to be a whole lot of fun, with the football adding a perfect topping to a wonderful occasion.

    We have two special matches to mark the 100th Armistice Day. It's a fitting way to commemorate 100 years since the end of hostilities in World War One.

    The Games of Remembrance kick off at Notts County's Meadow Lane, with the British Army women's team taking on their German Bundeswehr counterparts.

    At 19:00 GMT, just a hefty clearance away at Nottingham Forest's City Ground, we have the men's match too. There's all sorts going on, with fan zones and schools, clubs, and communities all involved.
