Germany made it four wins from four on the road in FIFA World Cup qualifying Group C, but were made to work harder than expected against ten-man Faroe Islands.

After a tap-in by Per Mertesacker before the break, Joachim Löw's side had to wait until Mesut Özil's 74th-minute penalty to double their lead. Thomas Müller rounded off the scoring. Atli Gregersen saw red for his role in giving away the spot kick and the result means a home win against the Republic of Ireland on 11 October will secure Germany their place in Brazil.
