FULL TIME: It finishes 3-3, what a game. The Swiss were 2-0 up before Werner and Havertz hit back. Gaavranovic scored his second to put the Swiss 3-2 up before Gnabry's fine equaliser. And there was a late red card for Schar. Thanks for following the game with us...
- Red cardFabian SchärSwitzerland
RED CARD! Newcastle defender Schär is off for a second yellow for a hefty challenge on Draxler about five yards outside the penalty area. Kroos takes the free-kick but its headed clear.
We will have 3 added minutes.
Sur[risingly few chances in the past 15 mins.
- OffRemo FreulerSwitzerland
- OnLoris BenitoSwitzerland
Benito is also on for the closing stages.
- OffHaris SeferovicSwitzerland
- OnCédric IttenSwitzerland
Itten is on for the visitors.
Germany still probing away, the Swiss continuing their tactic of relying on the counter attack and why not.
In the other game in this group, the Ukraine have taken a shock 1-0 lead over Spain.
CLOSE! Gnabry on the right slides it into the path of Draxler, who lashes a shot at goal from a tight angle which fles into the side-netting.
With all the changes, the game has petered out after 70 minutes of pulsating action.
Double change for the hosts. Can and Draxler on for Ginter and Havertz.
Gavranovic will not get a hat-trick, he is replaced by Mehmedi.
Low has only made 1 substitution which is surprising.
CHANCE! Kroos shapes up to take a free-kick around 35 yards out. Its a decent strike but goes wide.
- OffSteven ZuberSwitzerland
- OnEdimilson FernandesSwitzerland
Fernandes is on for Shaqiri. The Swiss are preparing to make another change.
- Yellow cardToni KroosGermany
Kroos is booked.
It's 3-3. The Swiss have twice conceded within a few minutes of scoring.
- GoalSerge GnabryGermany
GOAL FOR GERMANY! Gnabry with a gorgeous backheel flick from Werner's low cross to equalise again.
- OffRobin GosensGermany
- OnMarcel HalstenbergGermany
Halstenberg is on to no doubt organise the German defence.
- GoalMario GavranovicSwitzerland
GOAL FOR THE SWISS! Gavranovic with his second, thumping in a rebound after Freuler was denied twice by Neuer.
GOAL FOR GERMANY! Havertz cuts out a hospital pass, races into the box and tucks it into the bottom corner from a tightish angle.
The visitors pick up a couple of bookings. Gavranovic is cautioned for pulling back Xhaka, while Xhaka is booked for handball.
WOODWORK! Its Havertz's turn to go past his marker and fire in a shot that hits the base of the post.
CHANCE! Havertz finds Werner who cuts inside from the left and lashes a shot over the bar. The Chelsea pair have linked up well today.
No changes from either side during the interval.
- 2nd Half
KICK OFF: We are back underway.
- End of 1st Half
HALF TIME: What a 45 mins. The Swiss went 2-0 up after Gavranovic and Freuler scored. Werner then hit one back for the Germans.
CLOSE! Kroos is around 30 yards out and he blasts in a drive which flies into the side netting
Good goalkeeping from Sommer to come of his line to gather the ball as Werner tried to slide the ball into the path of Goretzka.
Wener, Havertz, and Kroos have been on good form for the home side but they look vulnerable defensively.
- Yellow cardRobin GosensGermany
Gosens was booked earlier for a foul on Widmer.
Werner jinks inside and plays a reverse ball to Gnabry who tries to dribble past Elvedi, but he is then double teamed. Good defending.
CLOSE! At the other end, Gosens' pass is cut out, it falls to him and his first time drive towards goal is tipped over by Sommer.
Vital challenge from Gosens off Freueler's toe who would have been through on goal.
What a game it has been. In short, Germany are sharp going forward but error prone at the back.
- GoalTimo WernerGermany
GOAL FOR GERMANY! Germany hit by instantly with a fine finish from Werner into the bottom corner from just inside the box after Havet'z pass.
- GoalRemo FreulerSwitzerland
GOAL FOR THE SWISS! Freuler with a deft chip ove Neuer after Seferovic's low inviting cross stemmed from a Germany mistake.
CHANCE! Kimmich scuffs a 25 yard effort well wide, he was forced into that, they were not allowed any space in the box.
Another top challenge from Rodriguez on Werner as he was about to shoot having traded passes on the edge of the penalty area.
Gnabry is having to come deep to collect the ball a lot of the time, he's not operating in that litle pocket near the box for Bayern. Credit to the Swiss, they have been very compact.
HUGE LET-OFF! Neuer's attempted pass is a poor one and is intercepted by Seferovic who finds Shaqiri whose shot is blocked.
Great defending from Rodriguez to slide in after Goretzka tried to pick out Gnabry in the box.
After initially storming out of the blocks, Germany are finding it hard to breakdown this organised Swiss side.
A corner for the Swiss. Rodriguez takes it but it comes to nothing. Germany look a little stunned.
- GoalMario GavranovicSwitzerland
GOAL! From the resulting corner, the set piece is partially cleared, its headed back towards goal and Gavranovic loops a header over Neuer.
GREAT SAVE! Gnabry loses the ball, Freuler's low cross finds an unmarked Shaqiri who turns and shoots on the edge of the six yard box and his effort is brilliantly saved by Neuer.
CHANCE! Lively, bright start from the Germans, who are adopting an intense high press. Goretzka has a shot from distance which flies over the bar.
Nice skill from Gnabry who finds Havertz but his tame shot is easily cut out.
- 1st Half
KICK OFF: We are underway in Cologne.
COUNTDOWN: 5 minutes until kick off in Cologne.
The Swiss look set to line-up 4-4-2, with Sommer and Elvedi in the starting XI with Zuber on the right wing.
For the hosts, Low has abandoned the much-criticised three at the back system and gone for a 4-3-3 with Sule dropping to the bench.
Chelsea newboys Timo Werner and Kai Havertz are back in Germany's starting XI after making sub appearances in the win over Ukraine.
For Switzerland, Xherdan Shaqiri is back in the line-up after testing positive - then negative - for coronavirus.
Germany picked up their first win in this competition after 7 games on Saturday against Ukraine with a 2-1 victory in Kiev. As for the Swiss, they are facing the prospect of relegation after losing to Spain.
