Late Bierhoff goal sinks Czechs
Oliver Bierhoff
Bierhoff ended his goal drought against the Czechs
Germany 3-2 Czech Republic

Oliver Bierhoff scored a last-minute goal to give Germany a 3-2 victory over the Czech Republic.

The Czechs seemed to have earned themselves a deserved draw when Patrik Berger's deflected free-kick made it 2-2 with 10 minutes to go.

It was Berger's first touch after coming on as a late substitute but Germany showed their resilience and scored at the death.

Berger's free-kick made the score 2-2
Carsten Jancker had opened the scoring in the first half when he was picked out by Jens Nowotny and swivelled to blast past Pavel Srnicek.

But the Czechs hit back early in the second half when Pavel Kuka beat Oliver Kahn from 20 yards.

Germany were soon back in the lead when Jiri Nemec brought Marco Bode down in the box.

Bierhoff took the responsiblity from the spot and scored his first international goal since he registered against Northern Ireland last September.

The late goals from Berger and Bierhoff then made the final score 3-2.

Germany have one more warm-up game against Liechtenstein on Wednesday, while the Czechs next game is against Holland at Euro 2000.
