Two second-half strikes from Mesut Özil helped to secure a Group C victory for Germany against the Faroe Islands in Hannover.

After cruising through their UEFA EURO 2012 qualifying group with a perfect record, Joachim Löw's men were straight back in the groove as Mario Götze put them ahead before the break. Goals in the 54th and 71st minutes from Real Madrid CF man Özil wrapped up the win despite rugged resistance from the Faroes.
