Germany shared the spoils with Switzerland in an entertaining 3-3 draw in the UEFA Nations League on Tuesday.


Mario Gavranovic gave Switzerland an early lead after five minutes, and Remo Freuler made matters worse for the Germans when he made it 2-0 in the 26th minute before Timo Werner pulled one back for the hosts shortly after.

Kai Havertz grabbed the equaliser 10 minutes into the second half, only to see Gavranovic restore the lead for the guests a few minutes later.

Just over the hour mark, Serge Gnabry made it 3-3 with the last goal of the game, backheeling the ball into the net.

Four minutes into injury time, Switzerland were reduced to 10 men when Fabian Schär was shown his second yellow card.
