Michael Ballack of Chelsea FC gave Germany the lead in the 16th minute and it appeared that the Germans were on their way to a fourth consecutive victory in Group D. But Yiannakis Okkas of Olympiakos Piraeus leveled the game on the stroke of half time driving a long-range volley past German keeper Timo Hildebrand.
Despite several chances for both teams the game ended in a draw leaving the 3 times world champions disappointed and the home fans celebrating one of their proudest results to date.
This result follows Cyprus’ 5-2 thumping of Ireland in their previous home game.
