So, Germany is safe from Euro 2020 elimination after drawing 2-2 with Hungary on home soil at Allianz Arena yesterday.
The German team is thus in the knockout rounds of Euro 2020. They’ve secured a last-16 match against England thanks to Leon Goretzka’s late equalizer.
After 11 minutes, Hungary took the lead in Munich, which meant that Germany were facing an early exit.
Adam Szalai of Mainz, who has actually spent most of his career in the German Bundesliga, handed Hungary this lead.
There was a little reprieve when Kai Havertz scored a header in the 66th minute, equalizing the score to 1-1.
But Joachim Low’s side was caught napping just 91 seconds later, in the 68th minute.
And Andras Schafer took full advantage of this to restore Hungary’s lead back to 1-2.
