Germany won every game in their qualifying group as they booked their place in Russian Federation, scoring 43 goals and conceding just four, and should head into the World Cup as heavy favourites.

Liverpool midfielder Emre Can admits he could add more goal-scoring to his game following his thunderbolt strike for Germany on Sunday.

Germany have never failed to qualify for the FIFA World Cup, but the holders' run in reaching Russian Federation 2018 has set new standards.

Mustafi could be out for some time with a suspected right thigh muscle tear, Loew said.

After an early wobble when Ramil Sheydayev cancelled out Leon Goretzka's opener, Germany scored a further three goals through Sandro Wagner, Antonio Rudiger and Goretzka again.

Germany maintained their 100 per cent win record in Group C with a 5-1 victory over Azerbaijan.

"It would be a mistake to use this qualifying campaign as a benchmark - sure it was good - but the World Cup will be a different matter. It's very hard to win the World Cup twice in a row".

The World Cup holders lost Julian Draxler before kick-off as the Paris Saint-Germain midfielder dropped out with flu, after Real Madrid star Toni Kroos had already been ruled out with a rib injury.

Then came Germany's injury blows.

Mustafi pulled up when chasing an Azerbaijani attack, clearly gripping the top of his leg while off the ball, and falling to the floor.

The Arsenal defender limped off to be replaced by Matthias Ginter with just 36 minutes gone...
