Up against a 65th placed North Macedonia in the world ranking, the four-time World champions were clearly, without doubt, the favourites, easily since they were at home in  Wednesday’s Group J World Cup Qualifiers, but as well, football served us the goods, once again. 

Goran Pandev put North Macedonia ahead just at the stroke of half-time.

Chelsea forward,  Timo Werner squandered a great opportunity to put Joachim Low’s side ahead with ten minutes left and the underdogs punished them, thanks to Eljif Elmas’ late winner and a victory that will go down as one of North Macedonia’s  greatest triumph, yet.

The defeat leaves Germany third in the group with 6 points, level on point with second-placed North Macedonia, and three behind first placed Armenia.
