Germany 2-1 Scotland
Borussia Dortmund's Signal Iduna Park was the venue for Germany's first UEFA EURO 2016 qualifier against Scotland on Sunday
Germany fans celebrated
BVB duo Marco Reus (l.) and Erik Durm (r.), as well as FC Bayern München's Mario Götze, were all named in Joachim Löw's starting XI
Durm, seen here trying to block Charlie Mulgrew's speculative effort, provided an inch-perfect cross for Thomas Müller inside the first ten minutes, but the FC Bayern star failed to hit the target
Müller (c.) attoned for his error soon after though, heading home from Sebastian Rudy's cross to give the hosts a deserved lead
It was no more than the world champions deserved after dominating the opening stages in North Rhine-Westphalia
On the rare occasions the Scots did venture forward in the first half, they found the likes of Benedikt Höwedes (l.) in fine form
However, Steven Naismith (r.) hit the post two minutes after the restart, and Gordon Strachan's side were level soon after...
Ikechi Anya broke free on the right-hand side, sprung the offside trap and curled the ball into the far corner of Manuel Neuer's goal, much to Christoph Kramer's (c.) dismay
Germany weren't behind for long though: Müller (c.) fired into the roof of the Scotland net just four minutes later...
...to complete a narrow win for Joachim Löw's side against the Scots, who had Mulgrew sent off for a second bookable offence in the closing stages
