After opening their UEFA Nations League campaign with three 1-1 draws in a row, Germany finally got their first win last night, thrashing European champions Italy 5-2 at Borussia-Park in Mönchengladbach.

Germany coach Hansi Flick was naturally delighted with his team's performance.

"I have to give huge credit to the team. Fair play to produce a performance like that in the fourth game of this run. The team executed everything we asked of them," Flick told reporters.

"It was a stress tests for us, as we needed a win following the three draws. We were very solid on the ball in midfield. We’re looking forward to the rest of the journey on our way to the World Cup."
