World champions Germany beat Scotland 3-2 in an entertaining clash in Glasgow

By Karolos Grohmann

Thomas Muller scored twice and set up another goal as Germany beat Scotland 3-2 on Monday night to move to the brink of qualification for Euro 2016 after all but securing a top-two finish in Group D with two games left.

The Germans have 19 points with Poland, who crushed Gibraltar 8-1, second on 17 and Ireland, who beat Georgia 1-0 and next face Joachim Low’s team in October, third on 15.

The 25-year-old Muller struck in the 18th minute with a deflected effort and added another with a close-range header after Scotland had levelled with a Mats Hummels own goal.

The home team came back once more before half-time with a shot from James McArthur but Muller rode to the rescue again, cutting the ball back for Ilkay Gundogan to fire the winner in off the post in the 54th minute.

Results from Euro 2016 qualifying on Monday:
Scotland 2 Germany 3
Republic of Ireland 1 Georgia 0
Northern Ireland 1 Hungary 1
Poland 8 Gibraltar 1
Finland 1 Faroe Islands 0
Romania 0 Greece 0
Armenia 0 Denmark 0
Albania 0 Portugal 1
