  • End of 2nd Half
- 

FULL-TIME. And that's the last bit of action for the evening. Germany leave it at just the six for the evening, entirely dominant over Norway. It was a strong performance from the hosts in Stuttgart against an opposition who were entirely outclassed. Thank you for your company this evening.

90' 

King hits the woodwork with an acutely-angled shot as the clock ticks down.

- 
85' 

The Mexican waves begin again, and it feels more like an appropriate time to do that now, five minutes from time.

83'

Linnes goes through Kroos, and gets a booking.

  • Mario Gómez
    GoalMario GómezGermanyGOAL! And there's the sixth after that embroidery of lovely passes, Kimmich feeding Gomez, and a diving header makes the net bulge.

Germany are stroking the ball around with intent once more.

Linnes comes on for Selnaes, who's had a decent game by Norway's standards tonight.

70' 

Draxler is still looking very bright as Germany look for that sixth, and Khedira has been excellent since coming on.

- 
66'

Mario Gomez comes on to replace Werner, who isn't going to get that third goal tonight.

- 
62' 

Svensson rattles a cross against the legs of Khedira, who launches the counter-attack.

61' 

And his first contribution is hooking in a cross to a confused Werner who simply wasn't expecting it.

60'

Sami Khedira comes on to replace Rudy.

58'

Svensson replaces Elyounoussi as Norway attempt to shut up shop with just the five goals shipped.

57' 

That's very close to an own goal from Mats Hummels, whose ankle flicks the ball loopingly out for a corner.

56'

Werner is very eager for his hat-trick goal - a little too eager, according to the assistant referee.

54' 

Selnaes has a right-footed shot that he sends skimming past the post. Decent enough chance.

54' 

Rudy has a dig from distance. Might as well try to get on the scoresheet.

  • Leon Goretzka
    GoalLeon GoretzkaGermanyGOAL! A header from substitute Goretzka from a terrific cross from Draxler, who turns lithely to get the ball in.

Ozil looks to thread another ball through a Norwegian forest of legs in the box.

We're under way again.

HALF-TIME. Germany 4-0 Norway. This is a remarkably one-sided encounter so far.

45' 

Jarstein guesses right to bat away Kroos's shot, low to his right.

39' 

Rudy throws himself in the way of the ball as Elyounoussi takes a shot - he seems to be in a bit of pain from it.

36' 

Norway win a corner, and Ter Stegen gathers that easily. Gives him something to do.

- 
- 

The TV cameras are scanning the respective benches. It looks much more fun on the Germany bench at the moment.

33' 

Ozil is looking for his second, and forces a save from the goalkkeper this time.

30' 

Kimmich is absolutely galloping down the right at the moment. He has so much space.

- 
26' 

Oh goodness, now the cheers have started, every time Germany successfully complete a pass.

24' 

Berget tries to absolutely welly the ball home from distance, and it flies into the proverbial Row Z.

23' 

Wow, there's a Mexican wave in the crowd already. That's got to hurt, Norway.

  • Timo Werner

First booking of the evening for Selnaes.

Too many chances to keep up with at the moment...

13' 

Chance for Muller there, and he rolls it past the post, and Jarstein wouldn't have got to that.

11' 

And there's another great chance not long after the game resumes, but nobody cares to finish after a bullet of a cross played low across the box.

10'

GOAL! Ah, what a gorgeous goal from Mesut Ozil. He has been good in these opening exchanges, and he starts this move off. Great pass played back to Ozil in space on the edge of the box, and it's a terrific finish.

- 

It's taken short and comes to nothing.

8' 

Free kick to Germany, about 45 yards out as Joshua King commits a needless shove.

6' 

Lots coming down the Germany right flank at the moment, and there's some crisp passing on show.

5' 

Neat claim in the air from Jarstein as Kimmich dinks in a tidy lofted cross.

4' 

Aleesami clears as Germany look to press again, and Elabdellaoui is looking just a touch too casual at the back.

3'

Ozil threads a nice little ball forward, but the flag is already up for offside.

2' 

Kimmich got his feet in a knot there - he was running into the centre of the box ready for a shot but it fell on his left and he fired wide.

1' 

Norway kick us off, in their red shirts, white shorts and navy socks.

Time for the national anthems, observed reasonably well, it appears.

19:40 

The teams are lined up and ready to head out on to the pitch as the music out there swells to a very dramatic kind of crescendo.
