Goals from Paris Brunner, Max Moerstedt and Bilal Yalcinkaya gave Germany the win that ensures their place in the knockout stages.
It’s another good day for Darvich, although manager Christian Wuck wasn’t too happy with his side and wants more from his players.
“I’m obviously happy that we won the game, but I’m not happy with the way we played today,” told FIFA.
“It wasn’t what we’re capable of and it’s not what we want. That’s why we have some work to do. We overdid it with individual play. We will definitely have to talk about that.”
