Should I use "draw," "equalize" or "tie" in the sentence below (It's about football/soccer)?
Germany managed to draw/equalize/tie in the last minute of the game.
Probably not draw. I like equalize since I think tie needs more detail like "tie the game in the last minute" while I think equalize stands alone but either is fine.
This question depends very much on regional dialect. I would definitely use "tie" in this context (Northeastern US).
I prefer "draw" to "equalize".
I would say equalise because that's what they did in the last minute of the game. They scored an equaliser. The game ended in a draw.
In Britain we normally say draw, Americans usually say tie.
