Germany's excellent start to FIFA World Cup qualifying continued in Dublin as they put six past the Republic of Ireland to make it three wins from three in Group C.

After winning all ten matches en route to UEFA EURO 2012, the visitors made it 13 consecutive victories in qualifying in emphatic fashion with a Marco Reus double giving the Nationalmannschaft a comfortable lead at the break. Mesut Özil, Miroslav Klose and two Toni Kroos efforts from distance rounded off the Germany scoring, Andy Keogh's late goal little consolation for the hosts.
