Argentina and Germany international friendly match ended in a four-goal thriller

Despite not having their talisman Lionel Messi, on Wednesday night at Signal Iduna Park, Argentina made a wonderful second half comeback to draw 2-2 with Germany.

It was simply a two-half game, as Germany charged into a two-goal lead.

After scoring four goals for Bayern Munich in their UEFA Champions League, Serge Gnabry who grabbed the headlines continued his fine form in the 15th minute with the opener.

Kai Havertz scored his first international goal six minutes later to give Germany a relatively comfortable 2-0 lead.

Yet Germany looked to run out of fuel in the second half with plenty of rapid errors in the opening period as Argentina fought back.

Lionel Scaloni made some inspired replacements as Lucas Alario pulled one back shortly after the hour mark for the visitors. Five minutes before full time, Lucas Ocampos levelled things up.

This Sunday, the two nations are back in action. Germany is heading to Estonia for a qualifier match for the 2020 European Championship and Argentina is visiting Ecuador in a friendly match.
