Cacau's injury time equalizer in a 2-2 draw for Germany denied 10-man Poland its first ever win over its neighbor in a friendly between the sides Tuesday.

Cacau scored with the game's last kick in the fourth minute of injury time, three minutes after Poland captain Jakub Blaszczykowski gave his side the lead from a penalty conceded by goalkeeper Tim Wiese.

Robert Lewandowski fired Poland into the lead in the 55th, when the referee played advantage after Wiese brought down Dariusz Dudka in the area.

Toni Kroos equalized with a penalty in the 68th, when Arkadiusz Glowacki was booked for bringing down substitute Thomas Mueller.


Glowacki was sent off in the 81st for his yellow card after a cynical foul on Mario Goetze.
