The Germans had to wait until the 74th minute before Oliver Neuville cancelled out Bosko Jankovic´s 18th-minute opener and Ballack then sealed the win eight minutes from time when he drilled in a free-kick.
"It is always important to win the final tune-up match because it gives you a good feeling. Losing would not have been good. We showed the right attitude and came back," the Germany skipper said.
