The game began with Germany taking an early lead thanks to a 14th-minute free kick by Charles Herrmann, which dispatched the ball into the back of the net. However, this advantage was short-lived as the U.S. equalized just ten minutes later with a goal by Taha Habroune from a well-worked set piece.
The match continued at an intense pace, with both sides trading blows and trying to gain an edge over each other. Just before halftime, Germany regained their lead once again with a goal by Max Moerstedt from a brilliant team effort that left the U.S. struggling to keep up.
As the second half kicked off, Germany threatened to extend their advantage further but were unable to do so due to some brave defending from the U.S. However, they did manage to level things up for a second time in the 80th minute thanks to a stunning free kick by David Vazquez that left Germany’s defense reeling.
With just seven minutes remaining on the clock, Germany had one final chance to secure victory and they took it with both hands when substitute Bilal Yalcinkaya scored a dramatic late winner in injury time to leave the U.S
