VIDEO Germany 2-1 France Highlights: Sami Khedira, Germany Storm Back In Second Half
February 7, 2013 8:56 AM EST
Midfielder Sami Khedira completed a second half comeback by Germany in their 2-1 victory over France Wednesday at Stade de France.
Off an excellent through ball by Mesut Ozil, Khedira struck a right foot shot in front of the net to put Germany up for good. It was the first goal for Khedira in a friendly this year, and his first in international competition since last year’s Euro Cup.
Germany avenged their 2-1 international friendly home loss from a year ago, when France’s Olivier Giroud and Florent Malouda powered their club's win at Weserstadion.
French midfielder Moussa Sissoko slung a heading pass to forward Mathieu Valbuena that broke a scoreless tie in the 44th minute, giving France all of the momentum heading into the half.
German midfielder Thomas Muller evened things up with a shot to the top right corner just past France goalkeeper Hugo Lloris in the 51 st. Up until that point the Germans had an overwhelming possession advantage but had failed to capitalize.
Later Muller had a chance to break the tie with a free kick, and while the shot was on goal, Lloris was able to make the save.
