Germany 2-2 France player ratings, stats and reaction: Arsenal duo take centre stage as Man United ace proves worth

Alexandre Lacazette scored twice for France tonight, as the Arsenal forward’s side drew 2-2 with Germany in their final international match of the year.

Lacazette opened the scoring in the 33rd minute after being brilliantly set up by Man United winger Anthony Martial.

Timo Werner then drew Germany level before Lacazette found the net again to put Les Blues 2-1 to the good with 20 minutes left to play.

Germany then found a last-minute equaliser through Lars Stindl at the match finished all square between the two European powerhouses.

Man of the Match

Gunners ace Lacazette will take the plaudits tonight, as the former Lyon forward scored both of France’s goal as they succumbed to a 2-2 draw with Joachim Low’s side.

The player showed exactly what’s he’s capable of with his second goal, as his perfectly timed run and cool finish showed why Arsenal felt the need to fork out for the player over the summer.
