Frankfurt, June 22:

Argentina rallied twice from a goal down to draw 2-2 with host Germany in the Confederations Cup. In other game, Tunisia defeated Australia 2-0.

Despite the draw, Germany finished first in Group A and will face the runner-up from Group B — either Japan, Brazil or Mexico — in Saturday’s semi-final. Argentina also reached the semis and face Group B champion.

Kevin Kuranyi put Germany ahead in the 29th, with Juan Riquelme equalising four minutes later. In the 51st, Germany’s Gerald Asamoah made it 2-1, with Esteban Cambiasso equalising in the 74th.

In Leipzig, Santos scored twice — in the 26th and 70th — as Tunisia won easily.
