GERMANY SECURE WORLD CUP SPOT
After a goalless first 45 minutes, Chelsea forward Kai Havertz gave Germany the lead before Timo Werner added a brace in three second half minutes. The Chelsea striker scored the first of his brace on 70 minutes before he wrapped up his brace in the 73rd minute. Bayern Munich midfielder Jamal Musiala completed the scoring for Germany with seven minutes left to play.
The big win over North Macedonia gave Germany an unassailable eight-point lead at the top of Group J with two games to go thereby securing their place at the World Cup 2022 tournament in Qatar at the end of next year.
Germany recently appointed Hansi Flick as their new manager and his fantastic start has led the country to become the first team to make it to Qatar 2022 via the qualifiers. He has won all his five games in charge of the team since he took charge of the team shortly after the disappointing Euro 2020 tournament under former manager Joachim Low this summer.
Flick was the Bayern Munich manager until he left the role to take the Germany job this summer.
