Germany have salvaged a 1-1 draw with Spain in their World Cup Group E clash thanks to substitute Niclas Fuellkrug’s 83rd minute goal.
Fuellkrug rescues Germany against Spain
Substitute Niclas Fuellkrug’s close range strike late in the second half has rescued Germany a valuable 1-1 draw against Spain in their World Cup showdown, a result which left Group E still wide open.
Alvaro Morata beat his marker and flicked the ball in at the near post past goalkeeper Manuel Neuer following a low cross from Jordi Alba in the 62nd minute to give Spain the lead.
But Fuellkrug levelled in the 83rd minute, smashing home a loose ball inside the box.
Spain top the standings with four points and now need only a draw in their final Group E game against Japan to progress. A win would send them through to the knockout round in first place.
