The European Championship can come: In the last test, the German national team dismantled an overwhelmed opponent – and scored many beautiful goals.

The German national soccer team confidently passed their EM dress rehearsal with a fast-paced performance full of wit. The DFB selection won against outsiders Latvia easily 7-1 (5-0) in Düsseldorf.

Robin Gosens (19th), Ilkay Gündogan (21st), returnees Thomas Müller (27th) and Serge Gnabry (45th) all met before the break, and Latvia’s goalkeeper Roberts Ozols (39th) also scored an own goal. In front of 1000 spectators, Timo Werner (50th) and Leroy Sane (76th) followed suit after the break, Aleksejs Saveljevs (75th) scored the consolation goal of the outsider.

At the start of the first pan-European final round, Löw’s team will meet world champion France on June 15 in Munich. The other matches in Group F with defending champions Portugal (June 19) and Hungary (June 23) will also be played in the Bavarian capital.
