Germany routs Azerbaijan in qualifying match
    2017-October-10  08:53    Shenzhen Daily

GERMANY completed a perfect World Cup qualification campaign by beating Azerbaijan 5-1 in Kaiserslautern for a 10th straight win in Group C on Sunday.

Leon Goretzka scored twice, while Sandro Wagner — with his fifth goal in five international appearances — Antonio Rudiger and Emre Can were also on target to leave the Germans with 43 goals in total.

Switzerland is the only other country that can finish European qualifying with maximum points.

Northern Ireland knew before its match at Norway began that a playoff place was guaranteed, courtesy of Slovakia finishing second in Group F and having an inferior points haul than the Northern Irish.

Norway won 1-0 thanks to a comical own-goal by Chris Brunt, who booted the ball into the roof of his own net from a meter out as he attempted to make a clearance. Czech Republic finished third, ahead of Norway, after beating San Marino 5-0 for its biggest win in qualifying.

San Marino lost all 10 games, scoring only two goals and conceding 51.

Meanwhile, with a record-setting 16th goal in European qualifying, Robert Lewandowski led Poland’s charge into a first World Cup since 2006.

The Bayern Munich striker has long been one of the most prolific players in European soccer, for club and country, and he’ll now be able to test himself at a global level when he competes at a World Cup for the first time next year.

Lewandowski scored Poland’s third goal in its 4-2 win over Montenegro that clinched first place in Group E, at the expense of Denmark. Poland is the fifth European nation to qualify — after Belgium, Germany, England and Spain — with Russia already sure of participating as tournament host.
