Die Mannschaft became the first country to qualify for the FIFA World Cup in Qatar next year after opening an unassailable lead in their group. The Germans thrashed North Macedonia who are second in their group 4-0 with two goals from Timo Werner, with Kai Havertz and Jamal Musiala also scoring.

The Germans will aim for their fifth title in Qatar next year. The Germans have previously won four World titles, first in 1954. They also won the mundial in 1974, 1990 and in 2014 where they beat Brazil 7-1 in the semifinal and Lionel Messi's Argentina in the final.

Brazil are five times World champion having won the title in 1958, 1962, 1970, 1994 and in 2002. They are the only nation to have played in all editions of the FIFA World Cup since it's inaugural edition in 1930 on South American soil in Uruguay, which Uruguay won.

Germany are now being coached by former assistant manager to Joachim Löw and former Bayern Munich manager Hansi Flick who is overseeing a steady development of the national team. They stand a chance of winning the global prize and are one of the favourites for the tournament.
