Euro 2020: Thomas Mueller on the Mark as Germany Thrash Latvia
Thomas Mueller has scored his first international score in two years as Germany crushed minnows Latvia 7-1 in their final warm-up friendly before the Euro 2020 finals.
Latvia which ranked 138th in the world, got rarely out of their half as Germany turned up for their opening game of the European Championship against world champions France in eight days’ time in Munich. The 35-year old veteran had one of the quietest nights of his career in Dusseldorf. He was largely untested until Latvia midfielder Aleksejs Saveljevs caught the German defense napping with a consolation goal 15 minutes from time.
Kai Havertz ghosted through the Latvia defense to set up the opener as left-back Robin Gosens claimed his first international goal, then 86 seconds later Gundogan crashed in the second. Germany was 3-0 up inside 27 minutes when Mueller hit the net, his 39th goal in 102 caps for Germany.
