FT: Germany 3-0 Slovakia. A dominant performance from the World Cup Champions, with Julian Draxler starring. Boateng and Gomez's first half goals were not dimmed by Ozil's penalty miss, while Draxler provided the icing on the cake with a wonderful volley. Germany face the winner of Italy/Spain in a mouth-watering quarterfinal clash

...
90+1' CHANCE! Muller sends in a peach of a low cross into the box, and Toni Kroos shoots straight at the keeper when anywhere else would have been a goal.
...
90' 2 minutes of injury time
...
89' A flurry of passes involving Ozil and Muller finds it way to Hector on the left wing, who overhits a cross with about 5 German shirts in the box.
...
87' This has been a very impressive performance from the World Cup Champions, and their opponents in the quarterfinals of the 2016 UEFA Euros better be wary.
...
85' Hector sends in a tempting cross, but Slovakia clear the ball for a corner. Ozil takes the set-piece with Howedes interested, but Germany are forced all the way back - which equals to Manuel Neuer on the halfway line.
...
83' The game has petered out into little more that a training exercise, as Slovakia have given up the ghost. The perfect pace for stalwarts like Podolski and Schweinsteiger then.
...
81' CLOSE! Podolski is penalised for offside when Schweinsteiger had chipped the ball to him in space in the Slovakian box. That looked quite close on the replay.
...
79' By coming on, Schweinsteiger is one game away from equaling Miroslav Klose's record of most appearances in both Euros and the World Cup of 37 appearances
...
77' Another wowser of a stat, this time from the good folks over at Squawka, who say that Boateng had 33 touches in Slovakia's half, and 32 in his own. Just to reiterate, Boateng is a central defender!
...
76' Bastian Schweinsteiger comes on for Sami Khedira. All of Germany's mascots are on, now.
...
...
This is Draxler's crowning moment of a man of the match performance
This is Draxler's crowning moment of a man of the match performance
...
72' Double substitution for Germany - Podolski and Howedes come on for Boateng and Draxler
...
71' Slovakia have retreated into their half after the goal, but Hamsik drives his team forward, only for Hrosovsky to shoot well over.
...
...
67' Hummels slides in to get the ball, but clatters into substitute Sestak, thus conceding a free-kick, which Durica hammers from range, only to watch it swerve wide off Neuer's post
...
That was Julian Draxler's first goal for Germany in 1121 days. Wow. 
...
63' That is game over. Toni Kroos sends in a corner from the right, and Mats Hummels gets his head to the ball, as it falls to Draxler on the far post at an awkward height. Not a problem, he hammers home an acrobatic volley into the top corner. Germany 3-0 Slovakia.
...
63' GOAL DRAXLER!!!
...
60' WHAT SKILL! Draxler does a 360 degree pirouette on the wings as he is sandwiched by two Slovak players but still manages to evade their attentions. Somewhere, a GIF-maker wipes away a tear.
...
58' These are encouraging signs from Slovakia who have made a much better fist of the game in the second half. Germany, however, have progressively sat deeper as they look glad to soak up the Slovak pressure.
...
57' Skriniar takes a tumble after being clipped by Draxler. Naive from the youngster, as Slovakia have a free-kick in Hamsik's range. However, the Slovak captain tries a dummy and pass to Kucka, who slams the indirect free-kick well over Neuer's goal.
...
53' Hector foolishly fouls Kucka on the left wing, and Slovakia have a set-piece in a tempting positon. Hamsik stands over the ball... and blasts it straight out of play, but complains that the ball deflected off Hummels, but the referee, incorrectly, waves his appeals away.
...
49' SHOT! Hamsik spreads the ball across the edge of the box as Slovakia counter, and Kucka runs on to it to power a shot on goal, but Neuer positions himself well and makes the save.
...
48' Kucka and Muller, off all people, contest a ball as Slovakia pump it long into Germany's box. The Germans clear, in the calm and efficient manner that comes so naturally to them.
...
46' Kimmich goes into the book for a foul on Hamsik as he counters
...
46' Slovakia get us underway in the second half! Can they mount an improbable comeback?!
...
HT: Slovakia have made a half time change, with Jan Gregus coming on for Vladimir Weiss
...
...
In keeping with the trend of German dominance (this is sounding a lot like WWII), Opta have another stat - the Germans have had 15 shots on goal, the most of any team in the 2016 UEFA Euros.
...
Just to underline how dominant Germany have been, here's a stat for you - Die Mannschaft have completed a staggering 82 passes in Slovakia's final third, who themselves had a paltry 15 successful passes in Germany's final third.
...
...
HT: Germany 2-0 Slovakia. What a half of football! Boateng gave Germany an early lead, which could have been worse for Slovakia if not for Ozil's penalty miss, but Gomez underlined Germany's dominance with a fine finish at the end.
...
44' That goal now makes Mario Gomez Germany's all time top-scorer at the Euros, joint-top with Jurgen Klinsmann on 5 goals
...
42' Draxler receives the ball on the left wing and then produces a stunning run to the byline, ending with a low cutback across the box to Gomez at the near post - who powers home a first time finish and increases Germany's lead. Germany 2-0 Slovakia
...
42' GOAL GOMEZ!!!
...
41' WHAT A SAVE! Pekarik sends in a peach of a cross from the right wing for Slovakia and Kucka hangs at the far post and powers a header into the top corner, only for Neuer to stretch out his arms and make a fingertip save.
