► Dream combinations!
► Great tricks!
► And gates, gates, gates too!
Finally another football festival for our national team! Germany sweeps Armenia 6-0 off the field, taking the lead in the World Cup qualifying group.
At least as important: The team of national coach Hansi Flick (56) is clearly better than the meager 2-0 against Liechtenstein. It delivers a full 90 minutes of the finest gala football, and it doesn’t stop when it is already clearly leading.
18,000 spectators in Stuttgart (free entry, tickets raffled) thrilled. They sing “Oh how beautiful!” Make the wave. Hasn’t been at international matches for a long time …
Whatever the German team tackles – it works.
► Serge Gnabry ensured a quick 2-0 lead (6th / 15th) with a double. First he slams a template from Goretzka under the crossbar, then he hits after a cross from Reus. Class!
► Werner puts down the ball with the heel (!) After a Gnabry flank. Reus completed from ten meters (39). Gorgeous!
► Our leaders and thinkers in midfield prove their eye and clarity: Kimmich chips the ball exactly on Goretzka. The Bayern colleague heads in the middle – Werner only needs to push the ball over the line (44th). Perfect!
► Gladbach’s Hofmann plays right-back, as Flick had already told him before the nomination. He keeps Gnabry’s back free, but also puts a lot of pressure on. Coronation: His 18-meter hammer to 5-0 (52nd). Great!
► Debutant Karim Adeyemi scores the final score in stoppage time.
Oh yes, the last ailing Sané delivers the best performance in weeks. He swirls on the left and hits a lot of dangerous crosses. Bad luck when he only hits the crossbar in the 22nd minute.
6: 0! Is that the flick departure? That will be shown on Wednesday in Iceland!
