A new generation of German soccer players has shown the world that Germany has huge reserves of talent. German boss Jogi Löw says that some of the Confed Cup heroes have played their way into his World Cup plans.
Anti-Semitism was still showing "its evil face" in Germany, said President Frank-Walter Steinmeier. Speaking at the Israeli embassy, he added he was "horrified and ashamed" by crowds burning Israeli flags in Berlin.
Many Germany players who won the Confederations Cup in July have continued to get playing time. In their final World Cup qualifier, those players made the difference as Germany completed a perfect qualification.
A Timo Werner brace a Naby Keita solo effort and a Monaco own goal have put RB Leipzig in the driving seat in Monaco. In Dortmund, Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang is back in business but there's yet more misery.
Joachim Löw has mixed in a few World Cup champions with members of the squad that won the Confederations Cup in Russia. The title holders could become the first European team to qualify for next summer's World Cup.
