Bayern Star Salvages A Draw For World Champs Germany

International Friendly 

Result: Denmark 1-1 Germany 

Date: 06 June 2017

Venue: Brøndby Stadion 

Bayern Munich's Joshua Kimmich struck late in the second half to help Germany claim a 1-1 draw with Denmark in an international friendly.

Joachim Low named experimental side ahead of the Confederations Cup later this month, with Lars Stindl, Sandro Wagner and Kevin Trapp making their debuts.

Denmark carved out the game's first chance after 15 minutes, but Trapp produced a fine save to keep out Jannik Vestergaard's volley.

The hosts broke the deadlock in the 18th minute, as Antonio Rudiger's poor clearance fell to Christian Eriksen who slotted into the bottom corner.

Germany went close to leveling matters in the 32nd minute, as Leon Goretzk fired over the crossbar from close range.

The World Champions continued to push for an equaliser in the remaining stages of the first half, but they were unable to carve out a clear-cut chance.

Denmark opted for  a double change at the start of the second half, as Lasse Schone and Mathias Jorgensen were introduced.

Germany went close to leveling matters on the hour mark, but Frederik Ronnow produced two good saves to deny Niklas Sule and Matthias Ginter in quick succession.

With the visitors struggling to find an equaliser, Joachim Low introduced Julian Brandt for Sandro Wagner in the 67th minute.

With time running out, Germany eventually leveled matters in the 88th minute courtesy of a superb acrobatic finish from Kimmich.
