GAME IN SUMMARY *
Germany dominated the first half but Australia hurt them just before the break with a Rogic rocket– that lead only lasted a few minutes.
* The VAR was called on for Australia’s second goal before it was finally officially awarded to the green and gold.
* Australia’s second half was much better as they pushed the Germans all the way.
Lars Stindl Germany, 5’: 0-1
Australia got exposed down the right, the Germans got in behind, into the box and the cutback was smashed home by Stindl.
Tom Rogic Australia, 40’: 1-1
Rogic found space in between the central defenders, and from just outside the box his first effort rebounded back to him and he made the Germans pay with a sizzling low strike underneath the German keeper
Julian Draxler Germany 43’ (pen): 2-1
Luongo was adjudged to have fouled a German player and Draxler stroked home the go-ahead goal just before the break.
Leon Goretzka Germany 47’: 3-1 Goretzka’s run into the box was found with a perfectly weighted ball and on an angle he smashed it past Ryan.
Tomi Juric Australia 56’: 3-2 Rogic’s power strike was spilled by Leno and Juric was on the spot to stroke home Australia’s second from right in front.
