Germany fights back to draw 3-3 with Switzerland in Cologne

  Germany fights back to draw 3-3 with Switzerland in Cologne COLOGNE, Germany (AP) — Germany fought back to draw 3-3 with Switzerland in another error-strewn performance in the Nations League on Tuesday. Mario Gavranovic scored twice for the visitors, who led 2-1 at halftime after capitalizing on sloppy defending and wayward passes from the Germans. The mistakes will do little to quell criticism from former Germany players including Bastian Schweinsteiger and Lothar Matthäus, who had been calling coach Joachim Löw’s tactics into question after a 2-1 win over Ukraine on Saturday and 3-3 draw with Turkey in a friendly the previous Wednesday.
