EFEDortmund, Germany

An Argentina side without Lionel Messi - serving an international suspension - conceded two goals before coming back to draw 2-2 with Germany here Wednesday in a friendly.

Fielding what coach Joachim Löw acknowledged was an "emergency squad" amid injuries to a dozen players, Germany dominated in the first half at Dortmund's Signal Iduna Park.

Julian Brandt created a chance on the counter in the 13th minute, but Argentina keeper Agustin Marchesin kicked the shot away.
