It was a big showdown in Qatar, when two European heavyweights slugged it down for three crucial points in the second group E game of the day.
The German machine found themselves in a precarious situation following their 2-1 loss to Japan last week.
Although, a defeat will not see them eliminated from the tournament due to Costa Rica’s win over Japan, it could be terminal to their hopes of progressing to the next round.
Alvaro Morata attacks the front post and connects with Jordi Alba’s cross, poking the ball beyond Neuer for Spain’s opener in the 61st minute.
Musiala is played through on goal and the youngster goes for power rather than accuracy. Simon stands tall and makes a crucial save.
The German sensing a defeat could be dangerous pressed for a goal and eventually got one late in the match courtesy of Niclas Fullkrug.
However, luck eventually smiled on Germany when Leroy Sane pokes the ball into the Spain penalty area towards Fullkrug and Musiala.
The latter collects before letting the striker take control. He wastes no time in arrowing the ball into the roof of the net beyond the dazzled Simon for Germany’s equalizer in the 82nd minute.
The result meant Spain will top the group with 4 points while others are rooted on three points, except Germany who is sitting bottom of the table with just one point.
