Germany were held to a 2-2 draw with Group G rivals Ghana in a thrilling game in which the second half featured all 4 goals.
Mario Götze gave the Germans in the lead in the 57th minute after a Thomas Müller cross found the head of the German who headed the ball downwards which bounced into the net to give Germany the lead.
Three minutes later Ghana had levelled through Marseille winger Andre Ayew. A fantastic cross in from Harrison Afful found the head of Ayew and the winger buried home a fantastic header past Manuel Neuer to make it 1-1.
Ghana then took a surprise lead over Germany in the 63rd minute. Ghana captain Asamoah Gyan picked up a superb through ball from AC Milan midfielder Sulley Muntari and a clinical near post finish from the captain put the Black Stars ahead and left a confident Germany frozen in their boots.
Veteran striker Miroslav Klose equalised for Germany with his first touch of the ball. A Toni Kroos corner was flicked off by Howedes and header found its way to Klose who pocked the ball in from close range. Miroslav Klose now has 15 World Cup goals and is now equal with Brazilian legend Ronaldo, who broke the record in the 2006 World Cup in Germany.
The result leaves Germany still top of Group G with 4 points and Ghana in 3rd with only a single point. Germany plays the USA in their last group stage game whilst Ghana face Portugal.
