Impressive Germany Thumbs Mexico

A 4-1 win over Mexico, inspired by a quick-fire start, saw FIFA World Cup holders Germany tee-up a FIFA Confederations Cup Russia 2017 final with Chile.
The Europeans began in ruthless style. To be more specific, Leon Goretzka did. Slotting beyond Guillermo Ochoa twice inside eight minutes, the Schalke midfielder eclipsed Argentina legend Gabriel Batistuta's quickest-ever double at the tournament, scored 25 years ago.

Mexico could have fallen further behind, but found their footing as the half went on. They ended the first period much the brighter side but, after a more even restart to proceedings, Timo Werner's tap-in ensured it was the world champions who were Saint Petersburg-bound.

Marco Fabian's 40-yard thunderbolt gave the travelling fans something sensational to cheer about, but Amin Younes made sure the three-goal cushion remained with a speedy last-minute response to rubber-stamp Germany's final ticket.
