Tim Borowski was selected for the 2006 World Cup. In the first match against Costa Rica, he played the role of attacking midfielder instead of captain Michael Ballack who was not available for the first match. After the game, he became an ever present substitute for the team and usually substituted for Bastian Schweinsteiger or Torsten Frings.
In the quarter-final against Argentina, he made a superb assistance for his then Bremen teammate Miroslav Klose to score the equalizing goal for Germany. Borowski scored with the decisive fourth penalty in Germany's 4-2 win in the shootout after extra time.
After the strong appearance in the previous match, he played from the beginning in the semi-finals against Italy. Later in that match, Bastian Schweinsteiger replaced him after Borowski picked up an injury, and was not able to play for the third place against Portugal.
