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.

Thank you

@paok1970,
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.

@paok1970,
This question depends very much on regional dialect. I would definitely use "tie" in this context (Northeastern US).

I prefer "draw" to "equalize".

@paok1970,
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.
