Germany Qualify For Euro 2016

Euro 2016 Qualifier 

Result: Germany 2-1 Georgia

Date: 11 October 2015

Venue: Red Bull Arena

Germany secured their spot at Euro 2016 after they recorded a 2-1 win over Georgia in the final qualifier on Sunday night.

After a quiet opening, the World Champions nearly went ahead in the 13th minute when Thomas Muller threaded a fine pass for Marco Reus, who placed his effort wide of the mark from close range.

Revishvili came to Georgia's rescue in the 19th minute, as the shot-stopper thwarted Reus from the edge of the box.

Reus was proving to Germany's biggest threat in the first half, although he squandered another chance in the 31st minute when he side-footed an effort inches wide of the post from inside the area.

Revishvili frustrated the home side once again in the 37th minute, when Mesut Ozil played Reus through on goal, however the Dortmund man fired volleyed at the goalkeeper.

Nonetheless, the sides went into the halftime break with the score level at 0-0, while the visitors failed to register an effort on target.

The World Champions eventually broke the deadlock five minutes after the break when they were awarded a penalty, which Thomas Muller converted.

The visitors hit back three minutes later Jaba Kankava, who gave away the penalty, volleyed past Manuel Neuer from 25-yards out.

The equaliser seemed to have given Georgia confidence and they nearly took the lead in the 57th minute as Valeri Qazaishvili skipped past two challenges before firing over the crossbar from close range.

However, Joachim Low's men restored their lead in the 79th minute when Max Kruse fired home a first-time effort at the near post, after being teed up Ozil.

Germany managed to see out the rest of the half to clinch the win, which has also seen them clinch top spot in Group D, ahead of Poland.
