On the pitch, it was a good night for Die Manshaft, who smashed Iceland, to take full control of the World Cup qualifying group.

Armenia and Romania were Germany’s largest competitions to qualify for Qatar, but both lost points on Wednesday night.

Germany entered the fixture round knowing that Armenia could make them jump before kicking the ball, but only a one-on-one draw with Group J’s whipping boy Liechtenstein.

Romania, which kicked off at the same time as Germany, was also held and drew 0-0 with North Macedonia. This means that Hans Flick’s team is four points behind the top of the group.

Serge Gnabry, Leroy Sané, Chelsea Duo Antonio Rudiger, and Timo Werner scored three wins a week for newly appointed head coach Flick.

Germany has scored 12 goals in three games and has not yet made concessions under the new boss who replaced Joa Himlow after Euro 2020.

Flick praised Chelsea forward Werner following the victory after scoring in all three games during the current match.

“Timo played all three games over 90 minutes, which certainly took a lot of power. He also scored in all the games. In this regard, he went in the right direction. I’m out. “

He felt there was a clear area to improve for the rest of him, even though he won very comfortably. The belief that you want to set goals. The chip ball arrived well, but the cross pass did not arrive. You need to work on it. “
