Brndby - Bayern Munich right-back Joshua Kimmich earned Germany a come-from-behind 1-1 draw against Denmark on Tuesday in a warm-up for a World Cup qualifier and Confederations Cup campaign.

Germany coach Joachim Loew opted to rest a clutch of stars including goalkeeper Manuel Neuer, Mats Hummels and Jerome Boeteng in defence, Toni Kroos in midfield and Thomas Mueller in attack.

And a lacklustre Germany were trailing for much of the game after Tottenham Hotspur midfielder Christian Eriksen put the hosts' into a 19th minute lead.

But Kimmich spoilt the Danes' night with the equaliser two minutes from time.

Germany have a 2018 World Cup qualifier date with minnows San Marino in Nuremberg on Saturday before the Confederations Cup begins in Russia on June 17.
