Overcast weather free of rain made for a crowd turnout of 99439 at Waldsportplatz today. Eugen Diaconu was the appointed referee with assistance provided by Alberto Toutin and . A 2-5-3 alignment was the formation of choice for Deutschland. The following players took the field: Catinan - Thiede, Denkinger - Artner, Niessner, Steets, Gehring, Urrutia del Pozzo - Fesel, Bedliwy, Partelly.

Guatemala tactics involved an interesting 5-4-1 combination. Starters: Casillas - Gallo, Loza, Ferrerira, García, Castro - Záyas, Madariaga, Cascante, Iglesia - Zenteno.

Guatemala clearly had decided to counter-attack when they could, taking advantage of their mythical level with that tactic. After 4 minutes, Guatemala were awarded a free kick as their counter attack broke down. The set piece was lifted over the top, intended to open up the defence. However, the target man seemed to be taken by surprise, and could not reach the ball before it crossed the line for a goal kick. 16 minutes had elapsed when a great chance for Deutschland to take the lead after a good cross from the right found Timm Bedliwy alone with the keeper, but he chipped it to the wrong side of the post. Deutschland could have put themselves ahead after 20 minutes but Hansjosef Steets missed a volley shot on a ball coming in from the right. José María Casillas had to be alert to tip Hansjosef Steets's fantastic penalty kick over the bar, denying Deutschland a chance at the lead. Hansjosef Steets gave Deutschland the lead with a beautiful free kick after 28 minutes. 1 - 0! 1 - 0 was the halftime score. Deutschland had most of the ball, with 65 percent of possession.

A speedy charge from the left side of the field increased the lead of Deutschland to 2 - 0 as Nils Urrutia del Pozzo finished it off competently, firing in from an acute angle. The Deutschland players could smell victory in the air. Nils Urrutia del Pozzo wasn't in a hurry to leave the field as he was substituted for David Hompesch after 59 minutes. With 61 minutes gone, a long pass from the defence of Guatemala resulted in a counterattack that set Carlos 'Nazionale' Ferrerira free through the middle, but the keeper made a spectacular diving save. A bit later, Guatemala's Juan Alberto Madariaga easily reduced the lead to 2 - 1 after a misunderstanding in the home side's central defence. A free kick just outside of the visitors' penalty area after 76 minutes could have resulted in another goal, but José María Casillas got a hand out and tipped the ball over the bar. Deutschland's Timm Bedliwy swung in a good chance from the left, but the visitors' defence were able to clear the ball. The coach of Deutschland was happy with the game so far, but still wanted to change the line up. After 89 minutes, Achim Faltl came on for Niklas Thiede. Content with how the game was proceeding, the Deutschland coach let Leon Weinkauf replace Klemens Catinan after 89 minutes. Deutschland claimed to have seen most of the ball, and the statistics agreed with them - possession being 66 percent.

Deutschland's best player was Alwin ''Wiesel'' Fesel. However, Achim Faltl made a disastrous appearance. Most important Guatemala player was Jorge Zenteno. Carlos 'Nazionale' Ferrerira was a disappointment, however. The match ends 2 - 1.
