Germany strike late to draw with France and preserve unbeaten run

France on the right road – Deschamps pleased with Les Bleus progression

FIFA World Cup champions Germany avoided a defeat at the last worldwide match in 2017 as the hosts fought back twice on goals from Timo Werner and Lars Stindl on Tuesday, reports Xinhua news agency.

The visitors had a chance to level matters five minutes before the break but Timo Werner could only fire straight at Steve Mandanda after being teed up by Mesut Ozil.

The draw means Germany have not lost since July 2016, when they were beaten 2-0 by France in the semi-finals of the European Championship.

Low will hope to see better defending when his side face Spain and Brazil before they begin their World Cup defence in Russian Federation, but their battling spirit will give the coach plenty of encouragement.

Germany coach Low had made six changes to the team which played out a 0-0 against England at Wembley, and was happy enough with what he saw as his men extended their unbeaten run to some 21 internationals. But the hosts struggled under early French pressure, with the speedy Kylian Mbappe and Blaise Matuidi a constant threat. We were a bit nervous in the first half, but we got forward well in the second half and pressed harder; France were very unsafe on the counter.

Half-time substitute Antonio Rudiger should have brought Germany level seven minutes after his introduction, but the Chelsea defender skewed his effort wide after great work down the left from Julian Draxler.

Germany's Toni Kroos rattled the crossbar with 20 minutes remaining before Ozil's Arsenal teammate Lacazette claimed his second goal of the nighr, scoring through Trapp's legs after Mbappe had played him in.

France's forward Alexandre Lacazette (2ndR), Germany's goalkeeper Kevin Trapp (L), defender Mats Hummels (2ndL) and Germany's midfielder Sami Khedira (R) vie for the ball during the global friendly football match Germany against France in Cologne on November 14, 2017. Of course it's a bit disappointing because we were close to getting the win when we conceded the leveller - and Anthony Martial had just had a huge chance to score our third.

France coach Didier Deschamps admitted he was disappointed with the draw. Still, overall, I'm very proud of my team's performance against this excellent German side who had, in my opinion, more control. We had speed and skill. "They are a high-class team".

"It's a bit disappointing, we were close to getting the win", said the 1998 World Cup victor.
