World Champions, Germany advanced into the quarter finals of Euro 2016 following a dominant performance over Slovakia, defeating Jan Kozak’s men 3-0.
Joachim Low’s men immediately took control of that tie since kick off, dominating possession and eventually getting in front after just eight minutes through Jerome Boateng’s long range drive.
Germany should have extended their lead soon afterwards when they were awarded a spot kick, but Mesut Ozil’s shot was saved by Slovakia goalie, Matus Kozacik.
That missed didn’t stop Die Manschaft’s domination as they kept on pushing forward and got themselves a second goal through Mario Gomez, who tapped in Julian Draxler’s assist.
Slovakia tried hard to get back into the tie and showed sparks of their attacking potential by causing some problems for Manuel Neuer, but they couldn’t convert those opportunities into goal.
After the break, Slovakia increased their pressure and created more problems for Germany, but as that second period wears off, Low’s team regained control and sealed that match via Draxler’s close range volley.
No more goals were scored afterwards as that game ended in a comfortable 3-0 victory for Germany as they know awaits the winner between Italy against Spain.
