Germany - Netherlands 1 - 1

Germany and Netherlands ends the evening out on a Dutch date. First half began as even as it gets but the Germans slowly got more out of the game and eventually, through a bananenflanke from Torsten Frings, scored the first after 30 minutes. Netherlands tried to reach the German box and create opportunities but the German defense played a consistent game.

Ruud van Nistelrooij managed to get a ball behind past Oliver Kahn 10 minutes before the ref blow his whistle for the last time and I believe the two sides were satisfied/unsatisfied with the result.

My Man of the Match: Michael Ballack
