    And that's also full-time on our coverage today on the Games of Remembrance.

    A fantastic celebration on both sides of the Trent and two matches played in a terrific spirit with some lovely goals too.

    Don't forget, you can relive all the action from both matches should you wish on this very page.

    Also, the BBC will of course be marking Armistice Day across the country on Sunday.

    Thanks for being with us.

    British Army 1-3 German Bundeswehr

    And there is the final whistle from Kevin Friend.

    The German Bundeswehr take it 3-1 thanks to that flurry of goals in the space of 12 first-half minutes.

    The visitors take both wins on the day in the women's and men's matches.

    Six minutes of stoppage time. Still time for a late twist?

    British Army 1-3 German Bundeswehr

    Glorious chance for an Army second goal to make this interesting.

    Sadly substitute Graham Williams can't finish it off from close range after a dangerous ball into the German area.

    Lovely save from close range though by Sven Steingraeber.

    British Army 1-3 German Bundeswehr

    Good move from the Army as Ryan Paddock forces a save at the near post and a corner.

    But the hosts can't quite find a goal despite the familiar City Ground chants of "Come On You Reds" to roar them along.

    Last couple of minutes now.

    British Army 1-3 German Bundeswehr

    Great saves again from Luke Cairney in the Army goal to deny the Germans a fourth goal.

    First one is a lovely save at the near post corner from Andreas Dick clawing it away from under his crossbar and then he's off his line to deny substitute Alexander Rahmig the chance to slide it home.

    British Army 1-3 German Bundeswehr

    Into the last 10 minutes and the Germans have only made the one change so far.

    But they seem content to sit off the Army a bit here and let them have long spells on the ball.

    Suddenly, Martin Pett fires in a lovely low strike from the edge of the area that Luke Cairney has to tip behind for a corner.

  8. Post update

    British Army 1-3 German Bundeswehr

    The Army have seen the bulk of possession and territory in the last 10 minutes.

    Still the Germans have a two-goal cushion though as Sam Atkinson fires an effort over the crossbar from 20 yards out for the hosts.

  9. Post update

    British Army 1-3 German Bundeswehr

    Approaching the last 15 minutes and Eric Schaaf almost has a second goal for the Germans.

    Got himself in a bit of space to open up for a shot on the edge of the Army penalty area, but couldn't curl his left-foot effort towards goal.

  10. Post update

    British Army 1-3 German Bundeswehr

    About halfway through this second half now and there's a few substitutes around the corner for both sides by looks of it.

    The Army have probably had the better of the chances since the restart but the Germans do look very organised coming forward on the break with Eric Schaaf again looking dangerous.

    His first-half goal was a beauty if you want to wind back and watch it again, I recommend it!

    British Army 1-3 German Bundeswehr

    Almost a way back in again for the Army as the Germans were a bit too ponderous in possession in their own half.

    Dan Stoneman's shot from the edge of the area is straight at Sven Steingraeber in goal who is able to chest it away.

    Approaching the hour mark and no more goals since the restart but it seems the Forest boss is in the house tonight...

  14. Listen: Tunics for Goalposts

    In a 5 live Sport Special originally recorded in 2014, former football correspondent Mike Ingham looks back at the World War One Christmas Truce and the reality behind the stories of British and German soldiers playing football in no man’s land on Christmas Day.

    Mike also focuses on the footballers who fought on the front line.

    A few too many keen challenges from the Army see midfielder Liam Shaw in the book.

    Second time Kevin Friend's been forced to show a yellow card tonight but he couldn't really ignore that.

  16. Post update

    British Army 1-3 German Bundeswehr

    Decent start to this second half by the Army.

    They've forced a corner and a free-kick in the German half clearly looking to repeat that set piece that led to to Rob Farkins' header just before half-time.

  17. Pictures from the first half

    Here's a selection of some of the best pictures from the game so far on what looks like a very picturesque night at the City Ground....

    British Army 1-3 German Bundeswehr

    And the teams are back out for the second half. No changes as yet.

    The Army will want to change the scoreline though after falling 3-1 behind in that first half, but they did finish the first 45 with a goal to keep them in it.

    Can the home side build on it?

    The home ground of Scottish Premiership club Heart of Midlothian, Tynecastle, is hosting an interactive play 'War of Two Halves'.

    It's the story of the Hearts side that joined up to fight in World War One.

    The show played to sell out crowds during the Edinburgh Festival, and is playing again in the lead up to Remembrance Sunday.

    Colleagues Andrew Southwick and Arran Hannah went to meet the cast and see the play in action.

  20. The Last Pass: Football and World War One

    Billie Nevill

    Now, if you only read one piece of writing to commemorate 100 years since the end of World War One - make sure you give this your full time and attention.

    It's called the Last Pass and is all about football in World War One and one particular family's journey.

    Colleagues Owen Phillips, Andrew Aloia and Brendon Mitchell have compiled a quite phenomenal piece of journalism to honour and commemorate the thousands who went to war for their country thinking that they would be taking just a short break from playing football.

    Sadly, many would never return home as the war raged on. This is The Last Pass.
