Niklas Sule (Defence): Apparently underutilized, showed his aggressive urge with sprints and long passes, but reached his limits when attempting heel moves.
Thilo Kehrer (Defense): This time in the central defense because Antonio Rudiger was out with back problems. A poor pass and a crucial block against Elmas of Macedonia in the first half. After the break, Neuer got into trouble with a complicated back pass, a bit late against Churlinov, but watchful overall.
David Room (Defense): Starting eleven premierships for the 23-year-old from Hoffenheim, he played very aggressively on the left side as directed. After 20 minutes of panic, he repeatedly indicated his lateral qualities. Often there is little profit on the ball. In the second half he left specific tasks for his fellow men.
Joshua Kimmich (midfield): They had the lead immediately after two minutes, but were unsuccessful because of goalkeeper Dmitrievsky. Then the common focus of the development game, tried repeatedly to find or make up gaps, but the better were the internationals.
Leon Goretzka (61st, to midfield): Remarkably imperceptible in the first half from Kimmich. Barely appeared after the break and had to leave the field after an hour. Perhaps the brightest appearance of his national team career.
Serge Gnabry (up to 74th, midfield): The most typical German player, due to scoring opportunities and a few sprints, but also because of an unsuccessful counterattack and a failed header. Made a 1-0 introduction with a top-class pass through to Muller. A lot of hard work, light and a little shadow afterwards.
Thomas Muller (up to 80th, midfield): In the starting eleven after his joker winning goal against Romania, but rarely finished 10th in the game at the start. But then the decider with two goals: intercepted a pass before 1-0 and later passed the goal scorer Havertz. Complex volley direct pass with Thomas Muller copyright movement before Werner’s 2-0.
Kai Havertz (61st, to midfield): On the edge with offensive David Raum played at half left in midfield. His moments were: Kimmich crossed an emotionally, vigorously launching Werner’s goal against the post. At 1-0 was the easiest part, just pouring. The yellow card against Liechtenstein will be missing.
Timo Werner (by 74th, attack): Despite a poor performance against Romania, they were allowed to resume – and their confidence was returned by national coach Hansi Flick. Post shot from close before the break and took the form-deep disappointment out of his mind at 2-0. The knot broke, a 3-0 shot in the half left-to-right corner was beautiful.
Karim Adeyemi (now 61.): There was a good chance after a good Mueller filing, but missed the volley. Strong win off the ball and a brilliant pass to Musiyala before 4-0.
Florian Wirtz (from 61): Leverkusen’s immense talent started his fourth international match with a poor pass in his own half. But then started 2-0 with a pass to Mueller.
Jamal Musiala (up from 74th for Werner): He used his few minutes to carefully go 4-0 up – it was the first international goal for a Munich player.
Jonas Hoffman (from 74th to Gnabry): Still in the starting line-up against Romania, with their eighth international appearance against North Macedonia.
Florian Neuhaus (from 80 for Müller): Each of his eight most recent appointments to the DFB team was held on the bench for 90 minutes. This time I was allowed to mix for a few more minutes.
