Germany took the lead early with none other than the 32 year old Miroslav Klose – you can bet the young Germans had something to do with the build-up of the goal. Klose is approaching the point Filippo Inzaghi has reached already: scoring goals when they really should have hung their boots.
Anyways, the 1-0 lead stood for Germany until Italy leveled through the American born Giuseppe Rossi in the 81st minute off the rebound of his own shot.
Germany 1-0 Italy
Germany 1-1 Italy
