Stade Pierre-Mauroy, Lille, 26.06.2016

3-0 (2-0)
Boateng 8., Özil pen 14., Gómez 43., Draxler 63. / –

After a hit-and-miss group phase, the Mannschaft’s Euro 2016 campaign burst into life against Slovakia in Lille. Inspired by the recalled Julian Draxler, Joachim Löw’s men put their opponents to the sword, turning out an almost perfect display to secure a convincing 3-0 victory and secure a place in the quarter-finals.

Jérôme Boateng’s thunderous strike would get the show on the road, and further goals from Mario Gómez and the impressive Draxler would complete the rout. As if to sum up how easy it was, Mesut Özil could even afford to miss a fourteenth-minute penalty.
