Argentina hold Germany 2-2 in worldwide friendly

Argentina hold Germany 2-2 in worldwide friendly”

Germany coach Joachim Löw handed debuts to four players as "Die Mannschaft" drew 2-2 with Argentina in a friendly at Signal Iduna Park in Dortmund.

Germany looked like they would definitely be the victor until substitute Lucas Alario halved the deficit at the hour mark before setting up the equalizer in the closing period to silence the 45,197 spectators at the Signal Iduna Park.

It was the home side who got off to the good start as the in-form Serge Gnabry opened the scoring after 15 minutes after skipping past a number of challenges before poking into the bottom corner.

Gnabry turned provider seven minutes later when he found Kai Havertz in the box to complete a quick move.

To use the great football cliche, it was a game of two halves, as Germany raced into a two-goal lead.

After the restart, Germany assumed control again as Luca Waldschmidt's volley missed the target before Emre Can was unable to beat Argentina goalkeeper Agustin Marchesin following a one-on-one in the 55th minute.

But with plenty of speedy turnovers in the opening period, Germany looked to run out of puff in the second half as Argentina fought back.

The Bayer Leverkusen striker had been on the pitch just three minutes when fellow substitute Marcos Acuna picked him out with a floated cross from the left and he arrowed a header into the far corner of Marc-Andre ter Stegen's net.

Germany, who are top of Group C and level on 12 points with Northern Ireland, travel to Estonia on Sunday.
