New Hertha Berlin striker Davie Selke broke the deadlock for Germany in their second UEFA European Under-21 Championship fixture against Denmark on Wednesday, with further efforts from Freiburg's Marc-Oliver Kempf and Hoffenheim's Nadiem Amiri sealing a 3-0 victory,
The first-half was an entertaining affair and despite Germany's formidable reputation the Danes did not sit back, instead looking to get forward whenever they could. However, the first 45 minutes ended goalless, despite Serge Gnabry leading several lively attacks that created promising chances.
Germany started the second half furiously and their pressure finally took its toll through Selke's well-taken finish in the 53rd minute. The result was never in doubt from that moment on as they forced Denmark to chase possession. More was to come in the closing stages as an unstoppable effort from Kempf from a Max Meyer corner gave Germany some breathing space, before Selke teed up Amiri to slot in a third to round off an outstanding team display.
Germany face a stern test against Italy on Saturday, although a draw would be enough for them to reach the knockout rounds a Group C winners.
