ARGENTINA 2-2 GERMANY

Germany have finished at the top of Group A after an entertaining 2-2 draw with Argentina at the Frankenstadion, Nuremberg in the FIFA Confederations Cup on Tuesday 21 June.

The hosts twice took the lead in the match, only to be pegged back twice by the spirited South Americans. Kevin Kuranyi opened the scoring in the 29th minute through a close-range effort, but his strike was cancelled out just three minutes later by a sublime free-kick from Juan Riquelme.

Six minutes into the second half, Gerald Asamoah finished coolly after being put through by Kuranyi to put Germany ahead for the second time, only for Esteban Cambiasso’s deflected effort to restore parity for the South Americans 16 minutes from time.
