Fantastic Fullkrug bails out Neuer and Germany! Winners, losers and ratings as Morata proves his worth for Spain again
Germany's 2022 World Cup dreams are still alive, but only just, and only thanks to an unlikely hero. The four-time winners needed an 83rd-minute strike from substitute Niclas Fullkrug to rescue their first point of the tournament, and in the process leave Spain with work to do to secure their own place in the knockout stages.
Luis Enrique's side had led courtesy of their own substitute, Alvaro Morata, but the Germans are nothing if not resilient, and after Jamal Musiala and Joshua Kimmich had missed gilt-edged chances to level, the veteran Fullkrug, who has spent much of his career in the 2.Bundesliga, stepped up to lash home with time running out.
Germany may even have won it, with Leroy Sane wasting a good opening in stoppage time, but Hansi Flick's team know that they can secure a last-16 spot by beating Costa Rica in their final Group E fixture, providing Spain can beat Japan.
GOAL runs through the winners and losers from an intense, and as it turns out dramatic, clash...
