Germany strolled to a 3-0 victory against the Republic of Ireland to clinch top spot in Group C and a place at next summer's FIFA World Cup.

Sami Khedira's 12-minute opener was just reward for the home team's early dominance. Chelsea FC forward André Schürrle consolidated the lead shortly before the hour and playmaker Mesut Özil added the final flourish to rubber-stamp his side's unassailable five-point advantage at the summit.
