Dylan Wootherspoon (42nd), Jeremy Hayward (48th) and Tom Wickham scored for Australia against a German side, which had only 13 players at its disposal today after four of them were ruled out of the match due to fever.

Germany were already down to 17 men before Saturday's match as one player had returned home after suffering injury during the course of the tournament. Germany did not get the services of some of the key players like Martin Haner, Julius Meyer, Christopher Ruhr and Marco Miltkau today as they were down with fever since Friday.
