Germany secured another three points to stay top of its World Cup qualifying group, this time with a 2-1 win over Austria

A goal each by Marco Reus and Mesut Ozil ensured Germany stayed ahead of Ireland and Sweden in Group C. Germany had previously beaten the Faroe Islands 3-0 in its first qualifier on Friday with Ozil scoring twice.

However, a goal by Werder Bremen midfielder Zlatko Junuzovic in the 57th minute and a host of narrow misses by the Austrians in the last few minutes before the final whistle, kept the Mannschaft on its toes until the end.
