  • Friendly international round-up: Germany squeeze past Saudi Arabia

Timo Werner opened the scoring after eight minutes and Omar Othman's own goal ultimately proved decisive, but there were some nervy moments for Germany as Taiseer Aljassam reduced the arrears late on.

Although Barcelona goalkeeper Marc-Andre ter Stegen saved Mohammad Al Sahlawi's weak spot-kick, Taisir Al-Jassim banged home the rebound on 85 minutes.

Players of Germany celebrate after winning the global friendly match between Germany and Saudi Arabia at Bay Arena on June 8, 2018 in Leverkusen, Germany. Germany is without a win in five and will welcome back star name like Toni Kroos and Thomas Muller back into the team as they missed the game against Austria. "We created opportunities to score more than one goal".

It was their first win in six matches but the Germans, who leave for Russian Federation in four days, rarely put their foot on the gas, seemingly fearful of any last-minute injuries, while the Saudis confirmed their good form heading into the World Cup.

Reus took a long pass from Joshua Kimmich first time in the left side of the penalty area and cut back for Werner, who crashed the ball in off the underside of the crossbar.

Gundogan, as well as Mesut Ozil, has been criticised for holding a meeting with Turkey president Recep Tayyip Erdogan, which the German Football Federation put down to an "election campaign stunt".

Forward Mohamed Al-Sahlawi had been dropped to the bench in place of winger Fahad Al Muwallad and the pace of the former Levante flyer and his teammate Salem Al Dawsari gave the opposition problems.

Rafael Nadal defeats Dominic Thiem to win 11th French Open
That is actually a tad below the $775,000 pricetag on his previous RM27-02, which Nadal first wore at the 2015 French Open . Dominic Thiem showed over the course of this tournament that he is more than ready to take the reins.

Friday's game was the team's first home worldwide since the scandal, and while Ozil missed the match through injury, Gundogan made an appearance from the substitutes' bench in the 57th minute and was subjected to booing for the remainder of the game.

At a post-match news conference, he added: "We will continue to improve and when the tournament starts, we will be there".

Joachim Low has hit out at Germany fans for again booing midfielder Ilkay Gundogan.

Teammate Hummels has talked of the importance of supporters backing each player, though, telling reporters: "You shouldn't be booing Germany internationals during a home game".

And finally, Croatia came from a goal down to beat Senegal 2-1 in Osijek in a warm-up clash that also featured two teams heading to Russian Federation 2018. We started well and the first-half was okay, then we let up and gave away too many chances.

The big talking point from the world champions' 2-1 victory on Friday night was the crowd's reaction to Gundogan every time the Manchester City midfielder got the ball.
