With the Americans pressuring high following a goal kick, Benedikt Hoewedes played a backpass to ter Stegen, who allowed the ball to roll off his right foot and into the net.
Westermann scored his fourth international goal when he peeled off Omar Gonzalez for an open 7-yard header on Kruse’s corner kick. Dempsey restored the two-goal lead after Jermaine Jones played a long ball to Altidore, who collected it and sent a one-hop pass across the field. Dempsey connected with a right-footed shot from about 10 yards.
Five minutes later, Dempsey took advantage of Lukas Podolski’s failure to close down his space and scored on a bending, 24-yard left-footed shot.
Unpressured by Gonzalez and Besler, Kruse beat Howard from 20 yards. Draxler scored after Howard sprawled to his right and parried Sidney Sam’s long-range shot into his path.
‘‘Toward the end we kind of hit a wall,’’ Gonzalez said. ‘‘We stopped possessing the ball, and that’s when Germany just came at us.’’
