Turkey 3-3 Germany
Turkey’s Kenan Karaman equalised in the 94th minute

Turkey scored an injury-time equaliser to clinch a draw against Germany in a six-goal friendly thriller in Cologne.

The visitors came from behind three times through Ozan Tufan, Efecan Karaca and Kenan Karaman’s 94th-minute strike.

Germany led three times after goals from captain Julian Draxler and debutant Florian Neuhaus – both set up by Chelsea’s Kai Havertz – and Gian-Luca Waldschmidt.

The hosts, missing several key men, dominated but could not seal victory.

Germany coach Joachim Low left Bayern Munich pair Manuel Neuer and Serge Gnabry out of the squad to rest them for their upcoming Nations League matches.

The 2014 World Cup winners travel to Ukraine on Saturday before hosting Switzerland on Tuesday.

They are without a win in 2020 having drawn both their Group A4 games so far, against Spain and the Swiss.

Chelsea midfielder Havertz impressed and his club team-mate Antonio Rudiger also featured for the hosts, while Arsenal’s Bernd Leno won his eighth international cap with first-choice goalkeeper Neuer rested,

Just over 300 fans were in attendance at the RheinEnergieStadion. Germany were set to allow 9,200 supporters to watch the game but were forced to change due to a rise in the local coronavirus infection rate.
