Germany need just one more point to be certain of a UEFA EURO 2016 place but coach Joachim Löw wants six from their games against the Republic of Ireland and Georgia in order "to qualify as group winners". Marco Reus returns to the squad after missing the September games through injury, while Bayer Leverkusen goalkeeper Bernd Leno has been called up for the first time.

Before the Poland and the Scotland games, the objective was to get away with six points and that’s exactly what we’ve done. We’ve made big steps towards France.

I’m happy that we've managed to win that game [against Scotland]. It was anything but easy, especially as Scotland were operating with all their men inside their own penalty area, hoping to get something from dead ball situations. I’m happy because we largely controlled the game and we didn’t allow Scotland any chances from open play. This win was well deserved.

We can almost say we’re through. A draw would be sufficient in Dublin but we never play for a draw, that’s not the German way of doing.
