Germany became the first team to book their plane kaartjie to Qatar for next year’s World Cup.
The four-time world champions crushed North Macedonia 4-0 to secure top spot in Group J with two games left to play, as they look to make amends for their shock 2018 World Cup first-round exit and their Round of 16 elimination at this year’s Euros.
Midfielder Leon Goretzka says: “We should keep our sights low at the moment. There were a lot of things also in [Monday’s] game that we need to be better [at].
“We have the quality but we also have to grow together as a team and we have to use every available training session to do that. We are on the right track but still have work to do.”
Germany have won all five matches under new coach Hansi Flick, who replaced Joachim Low following their disappointing performances in their last two international tournaments.
