Hungary looked to cause an upset when they opened the scoring on 10 minutes with an impressive diving header from the captain Adam Szalai, who had connected with Roland Sallai’s superb whipped cross behind the German back line.
Germany’s Kai Havertz looked to have bought his side a lifeline on 66 minutes when he scored his second goal of the tournament. The Chelsea midfielder headed the ball home into an empty net after a goalkeeping error from Hungary’s Peter Gulacsi.
But Hungary struck back moments later as midfielder Andras Schafer nodded the ball past as an on-rushing Manuel Neuer.
Germany midfielder Leon Goretzka levelled the match once more on 85 minutes to secure his side through to the knockout stages.
