The meeting between the European champions and the Copa Am विजेrica winners – Argentina’s 3-0 win over Roberto Mancini in Wednesday’s final – but it was much better at the studio Renato del’Ara.
Azzurri, who hit the post in the first half via Gianluca Skamaka, made progress in the 70th minute thanks to Lorenzo Pellegrini’s fourth international goal.
However, Germany soon equalized as Joshua Kimich snatched one of Hansi Flick’s men’s points.
In the 15th minute, Serge Gnabri pushed Gianluigi Donaruma to a smart stop from the corner of the square to give Germany a comfortable lead in the opening round.
Thomas Mलरller brilliantly blocked a powerful strike by Alessandro Florenzi half an hour earlier, while at the other end Skamaka attempted from just below the bottom of Manuel Neuer’s right-hand post.
Skamaka moved from a promising position immediately after the restart, before extending Matteo Politano’s efforts.
The 18-year-old newcomer Wilfred Gonto then made an impact almost immediately after the introduction in the 65th minute, with Pellegrini swinging a wonderful cross close to the right.
Italy’s lead lasted just three minutes, however, as Kimich moved home from 10 yards out to make sure the loot was shared.
