After a 4-0 victory in Northern Macedonia, Germany can no longer qualify for the 2022 World Cup in Qatar.
Hansi Flick’s team continued to struggle in the first half. Although the Germans are obviously the team that determines the game, they leave many good chances for a goal. After changing sides, it still works: Kai Havertz unties the knot in the 50th minute, before Timo Werner decides on the game within four minutes (70th, 74th). Jamal Musiala puts the lid on just before the end.
With the victory in Romania, Armenia could have saved the theoretical opportunity to challenge the Germans for the first place in Group J of the qualification for the World Cup. But the Armenians lose 0: 1 and slide down to fourth place. Thus, two days before the end, Germany was confirmed as the first on the table and the driver of the World Cup.
Flick sets Lov’s record
With his fifth win in the fifth game, Hansi Flick set the starting record as the national coach of his predecessor Joachim Love. Two games thus degenerated towards the end against Liechtenstein, which is still without a win after a 4-0 draw in Iceland, and Armenia in November to test matches of a competitive nature.
