Euro 2020

Germany Move Level On Points With Netherlands

UEFA Euro 2020 Qualifier
 
Result: Estonia 0-3 Germany
 
Date: 13 October 2019
 
Venue: A La Coq Arena
 
Ten-man Germany strolled to a comfortable 3-0 victory over Estonia in a 2020 European Championship  Group C qualifier on Sunday evening.
 
Injuries forced the Germans to make a few changes with Ilkay Gundogan slotted alongside Joshua Kimmich in midfield, whilst Luca Waldschmidt was preferred up top in place of Serge Gnabry.
 
Germany’s approach went pear-shaped as early as the 14th minute when Emre Can received his marching orders following a professional foul outside the area.
 
Waldschmidt went close to finding the break with a powerful low drive five minutes later, but the effort was spurned to safety by Sergei Lepmets. Meanwhile, Estonia posted a few danger signs in the closing phases of the half however a tame header from Rauno Sappinen was their sole threat.
 
Marco Reus cracked the frame of the woodwork eight minutes to the interval after launching a pin-point free-kick outside the area.
 
Die Mannschaft and their counterparts remained unchanged following the start of the second stanza, with either side tough to crack down. That was until the 52nd minute when Gundogan smashed into the bottom corner following a loose ball from the edge of the area.
 
The Germans were in full flight three minutes later as Gundogan stabbed home his brace a following a low pass from Reus to extend the hosts' lead.
 
With the game in the balance, Germany introduced their first change with 66 minutes gone as Timo Werner filled in for Waldschmidt.
 
Werner announced his arrival in style as he finished in to the far corner after pulling a cut back following a diagonal ball 20 minutes from time.
 
Estonia tried with all their might to get a consolation closer to full-time, but the Germans defended strongly to walk off with a clean sheet
