Germany defeated Ecuador 3-0

Share |


With a brilliant performance, Germany claimed three wins out of three when they defeated Ecuador 3-0 to finish top of Group A.

TOp scorer Miroslav Klose, now with four goals, netted twice against the Ecuatorian goalkeeper.

The host team were clearly taking the threat of a possible match against England more seriously than Ecuador and, even though they had already qualified, they played at full strength.

It's important to mention that Germany started the World Cup with some uncertainty over their prospects, but their qualification for the knockout stages has been incredibly easy.

In fact, Germany may not have faced any sort of proper test yet, having played against a really limited Costa Rica, a terrible Poland and now the weak Ecuador, but they have beaten every squad they have faced, and not once seriously looked in any danger of not getting all three points they needed.

Now Germany will lay against Sweden, the second of Group B, and Ecuador will face powerhouse England, in a very difficult challenge for them.

Group A Final positions:

Germany (9)
Ecuador (6)
Poland (3)
Costa Rica (0)
