Jeers for Gundogan annoy Germany boss Loew

Werner shines as nervy Germany end winless streak

Just when it seemed there might be an equalizer, Werner crossed for Omar Hawsawi to turn the ball into his own net under pressure from Thomas Mueller.

They grabbed a lifeline as skipper Taisir Al-Jassim smashed in the rebound after a Mohammad Al-Sahlawi penalty was saved by goalkeeper Marc-Andre ter Stegen five minutes from full-time.

Leverkusen: Timo Werner impressed as Germany gave themselves a pre-World Cup boost on Friday by breaking their five-match winless streak with a nervy 2-1 victory over Saudi Arabia in their final warm-up game. Saudi Arabia take on hosts Russian Federation in the tournament's opening match on June 14 and also play Egypt and Uruguay in Group A. It is predicted that Germany has more chance to win this friendly match.

"We eased off in the second half, defensively we need to work a bit better and not leave so many open spaces".

Arsenal star Ozil did not feature against Saudi Arabia but Low is keen to close the issue with Germany's World Cup defence to begin in nine days against Mexico.

The Germans grabbed a ideal start into the encounter as Joshua Kimmich's long ball found Marco Reus inside the box before Timo Werner hammered home from close range with eight minutes into the game.

Gundogan and Mesut Ozil, who also met Turkey's president in London last month, were both booed by Germany fans during a 2-1 defeat in Austria on Saturday.

There was little of note in a sterile second half, apart from whistles from the home fans for Ilkay Gundogan following his entrance before the hour mark. Juan Antonio Pizzi, their head coach may have tinkered with his line up adopting rotation between squad members will nearly certainly play his strongest line up against the German.

"I know that we have to improve, but when the tournament starts, we'll be ready".

Croatia battled back from an Ismaila Sarr opener to defeat Senegal 2-1 thanks to second-half goals from Ivan Perisic and Andrej Kramaric and Switzerland continued their impressive form with a 2-0 win over Japan.

The Manchester City midfielder was jeered as he came on, and every time he touched the ball, after meeting Turkish leader Recep Tayyip Erdogan in May and calling him "my president".

Strikes from Robert Lewandowski and midfielder Piotr Zielinski were not enough to give World Cup-bound Poland victory over Chile, who fought back from two goals down to draw 2-2 in Poznan.

'He's a member of the national team and that (booing) does not help anyone, ' said an irritated Low.

Pleasingly from a German perspective, captain Manuel Neuer kept a clean sheet in his 45-minute spell in goal.
