Germany finally came to party at the UEFA Euro 2016, annihilating Slovakia in their round of 16 clash at the Stade Pierre-Mauroy to secure a berth in the quarter-final. Joachim Low’s side dominated the entire 90 minutes as Slovakia failed to make any clear impact on the game. Slovenskí sokoli lacked quality and never had the edge over the Germans.

Die Mannschaft drew the first blood when Jerome Boateng scored from outside of the penalty box, before Mesut Ozil missed the penalty after Mario Gomez was fouled inside the box by Martin Skrtel. Julian Draxler was the star of the show for the Germans, with the Wolfsburg man first providing the assist for Gomez’s goal, before getting on the scoresheet with a thunderous volley from around six yards out to make it 3-0 for the reigning world champions.
