Germany’s 2018 FIFA World Cup qualifying campaign got off to a perfect start courtesy of a comfortable 3-0 win over Norway in Oslo.
Norway 0-3 Germany
Man of the Match
Müller is a once-in-a-lifetime talent and proved it once again against Norway. In the absence of an out-and-out striker the Bayern star notched up his seventh brace for the German national team.
Composed, clinical and confident. Germany may have taken their foot of the pedal in the closing stages, but the win in Norway’s capital against arguably their strongest opponent in Group C should serve as warning of what is to come as they look to defend their title.
Norway: Jarstein - Svensson, Hovland, Nordtveit, Aleesami - Berisha, Johansen (Jenssen 67'), Tettey, Diomande - Henriksen (Selneaes 61'), King (Sorloth 72')
Coach: Per-Mathias Hogmo
Coach: Joachim Löw
