Musiala named Player of the Match in Germany's win over Scotland

Jamal Musiala was selected Player of the Match in Germany's 5-1 win over Scotland.

 

Germany opened their European Championship campaign with a commanding 5-1 win over Scotland in Munich on Friday night.

The Bayern Munich forward was a constant threat throughout the game, causing the Scottish defense all sorts of problems before being replaced by Thomas Muller in the 74th minute.

Musiala capped an excellent performance with Germany's second goal of the night, hammering the ball into the roof of the net after a clever touch inside the penalty area.

At 21 years and 109 days old, Musiala became the second-youngest player to score for Germany at the European Championship, behind only Florian Wirtz, who scored the opener.
