Germany became the first team to join hosts Qatar at the 2022 World Cup with a thumping victory in North Macedonia.
Former England youth international Jamal Musiala opened his account for the Germans, running in on goal and stroking home a confident finish.
Kai Havertz claimed the first goal in the second half, slotting in from Thomas Muller’s unselfish pass. Timo Werner smashed home the second following Muller’s superb flick and also curled in a delightful third.
Hansi Flick’s men, who are four-time world champions, reach the tournament for the 20th occasion, with only Brazil (21) appearing more times. They did it with two games to spare, with meetings against Liechtenstein and Armenia to come next month.
