Germany outclass Slovakia to progress

Germany have cruised through to the quarter-finals of Euro 2016 as they overpowered Slovakia 3-0 in their last 16 meeting in Lille.

This was a statement performance from the world champions who will face either Spain or Italy in the quarter-finals and on this evidence they will fear neither side.

Bayern Munich defender Jerome Boateng volleyed the opener from outside the box on eight minutes as Germany's high press denied Slovakia any chance to settle on the ball or establish a rhythm.

Mesut Ozil missed an opportunity to double Die Mannschaft's lead when his telegraphed spot-kick was easily palmed away but they doubled their advantage just before the break when Mario Gomez produced a neat finish after great work from the impressive Julian Draxler down the left.

In truth Slovakia looked beaten from the first minute but Jogi Loew's side hammered home their superiority and Draxler made the scoreboard more accurately reflect their dominance when he volleyed home a sweet third on 63 minutes.

The Slovaks only real chance fell to Juraj Kucka but Manuel Neuer made a fantastic fingertip save to knock the ball over the crossbar.

Germany march on and will play again in Bordeaux next Saturday and on this form, it will take a very good side to stop them adding the European title to their world crown.
