Kroos At The Double As Germany Book Euro 2020 Place

Toni Kroos scored twice as Germany booked their place at Euro 2020 with a routine victory over Belarus.

Matthias Ginter opened the scoring for the hosts in Monchengladbach before Leon Goretzka doubled their lead.

Real Madrid’s Kroos then scored two fine goals to seal a comfortable win.

Meanwhile, Northern Ireland’s failure to beat the Netherlands means the Dutch have also qualified from Group C, while Northern Ireland must now try to qualify through the play-offs.

Joachim Low’s Germany side dominated from the off at Borussia-Park but the away side, to their credit, defended stubbornly to hold them off until the 41st minute.

But after Ginter broke the deadlock with a clever backheel from Serge Gnabry’s cross, Die Mannschaft began to play with a real swagger, knowing their opponents’ resilience was broken.
