Germany 4-1 Italy

Mario Gotze
This was Germany's first win over Italy at the eighth attempt since a 2-0 victory on 21 June 1995

Germany bounced back from defeat by England on Saturday to beat Italy for the first time in almost 21 years.

The world champions avoided a third straight loss as Toni Kroos opened the scoring before reported Liverpool target Mario Gotze doubled the lead.

Left-back Jonas Hector, another rumoured Liverpool option, then scored a header with a Mesut Ozil penalty making it 4-0 with 15 minutes left.

Stephan El Shaarawy grabbed a late consolation for Antonio Conte's team.
