Germany 2-2 France

Lars Stindl
Germany boss Joachim Low made six changes to the side that drew 0-0 with England last time out

Lars Stindl struck in stoppage time as world champions Germany extended their unbeaten run to 21 matches by drawing with France in a friendly.

Brilliant footwork from Manchester United forward Anthony Martial allowed Arsenal's Alexandre Lacazette to tap in the opener for France.

Timo Werner turned home Mesut Ozil's pass before Lacazette's clinical strike restored France's lead.

However, substitute Stindl struck at the near post to deny France victory.

The draw means Germany have not lost since July 2016, when they were beaten 2-0 by France in the semi-finals of the European Championship.

"We played better in the second half after not everything worked so well in the first 45 minutes as we had hoped," said Germany boss Joachim Low, whose side drew 0-0 with England in a friendly last week.

"That can always happen when you are behind at the break, but we had our chances when we put pressure on in the second half."
