Havertz, Tah and Brandt subs for Germany win

Germany clocked up an impressive 8-0 victory over Estonia in the third Euro 2020 qualifier at the Opel Arena in Mainz. The two Werkself players Kai Havertz and Jonathan Tah plus Julian Brandt did not feature.

Marco Reus netted the opener on 10 minutes in the first of a flurry of German goals. The Dortmund player and future team-mate of Julian Brandt double his tally on 37 minutes and he made a significant contribution to Germany's success. Serge Gnabry (17', 62'), Leon Goretzka (20'), Ilkay Gündogan (26'), Timo Werner (79') and Leroy Sané (88') scored the other goals for Germany.

Dragovic off at the break - Baumi still injured

The Austria team led by national coach Franco Foda also recorded a victory. The Austrians beat North Macedonia 4-1 on Monday in the Euro 2020 qualifier. Bayer 04 defender Aleksandar Dragovic went off injured at half-time with a groin problem. Julian Baumgartlinger was not in the Austria squad. The 31-year-old is still struggling with an inflammation to his ankle picked up in the match against Slovenia last Friday.

Clean sheet for Hradecky – Jedvaj looks on

Bayer 04 keeper Lucas Hradecky was in goal for Finland for 90 minutes in the 2-0 win against Liechtenstein in the Euro qualifier and – as in the game against Bosnia-Herzegovina on Saturday (2-0) – he kept a clean sheet. World Cup runners-up Croatia lost 2-1 against Tunisia in a friendly on Tuesday night. Defender Tin Jedvaj was on the bench for the full 90 minutes as was the junior international Marc Lampti for Tunisia.
