Fisht Olympic Stadium, Sochi, 29.06.2017
Mexico

4-1 (2-0)
Goretzka 6., 8., Werner 59., Younes 90.+1. / Fabian 89.

Having topped Group B, Germany would take on Group A runners-up Mexico in the semi-final in Sochi. In what was an exciting encounter, the World Champions flew into an early two-goal lead courtesy of Leon Goretzka, but then had to soak up some sustained pressure from their lively opponents before effectively settling the issue just before the hour through Timo Werner. Mexico would pull a goal back with a stunning Marco Fabián strike a minute from time, but a smart finish from Amin Younes in added time would add the final gloss.
