A year on from their thrilling 4–4 draw in Berlin, Sweden and Germany produced another eight-goal extravaganza – this time Germany triumphing 5–3 in Solna.

The Germans had already won FIFA World Cup qualifying Group C and Sweden had secured a play-off berth as runners-up, but the sides treated a sold-out Friends Arena to another spectacle. Two-one down at half-time, Germany were indebted to star of the show André Schürrle who hit a 19-minute second-half hat-trick to decide the contest.
