Germany crushes Mexico 4-1 in Confederation Cup semi-final

Leon Goretzka scored twice in the opening eight minutes as Germany beat Mexico 4-1 in Sochi to join Chile in the Confederations Cup final, BBC reported.

BBC added that th Schalke midfielder swept home a Benjamin Henrichs pass from 20 yards and then slotted home from Timo Werner’s pass.

Werner then tapped home Jonas Hector’s pass to increase Germany’s lead. Marco Fabian scored a brilliant 35-yard strike for Mexico, before Amin Younes added a fourth for Germany, BBC added.

Mexico had plenty of chances to come back into the game at 2-0 down but squandered them. Fabian’s stunner came too late to threaten a comeback, although there was a chaotic ending with several chances at both ends, according to BBC.

While Germany go onto Sunday’s final in St Petersburg, Mexico face Portugal in a third-fourth play-off earlier that day, BBC added.
