NOTES: Colombia opened the scoring with some incredible teamwork, with Faustino Asprilla knocking the ball past Kahn from six feet in the 26th minute ... The Colombia goal began with Henry Zambrano dribbling out of the left corner and playing the ball back to Arley Betancourt, who slide a nice through ball forward to Neider Morantes, who squared an easy pass to the right to an unmarked Asprilla ... The Germans tied the score seven minutes later on 33 minutes, with Michael Preetz knocking home the rebound of a shot by Oliver Neuville which was originally saved by Oscar Cordoba ... Alexander Lemus received a red card before the end of the first half, picking up yellows in the 17th and 44th minutes ... The second German goal came from the head of Preetz, who went high to knock a perfect cross from Neuville into the lower left corner of the net ... The Colombians tied the match with a 68th minute penalty kick from Asprilla, after Jorge Bermudez was taken down in the penalty area by Jens Lehman ... The third Germany goal came after Cordoba failed to clear a cross from Marco Reich and the ball fell to Preetz on the right wing, where he lobbed the ball into the 'keeperless penalty area and Marco Bode headed it home in the 74th minute ... Colombia tied the game again on a perfectly placed header by Ivan Ramiro Cordoba in the 80th minute ... The match was the second for the Germans in three days, having lost to the U.S. 3-0 on Feb. 6 at Alltel Stadium in Jacksonville, Fla.
