Germany have got the 3 points, which was not a given towards the end of the game.
It was Joachim Low's side which dominated proceedings in the first half. Stindl scored his first ever goal for the senior national team to give his side the lead in the 5th minute before Rogic was lucky to pull one back for the Socceroos against the run of play. Julian Draxler, the captain, stepped up to the occasion and dispatched a penalty with aplomb on the stroke of half-time to restore Germany's 1-goal lead.

Goretzka - arguably the best player on the pitch - doubled their lead immediately after the restart before Juric capitalized on some poor goalkeeping by Leno to score Australia's second. However, it was not enough as Germany still held on to win the game 3-2.

PEEP PEEP PEEP!!
Full-Time: Australia 2-3 Germany
...
90+4' OUTRAGEOUS piece of skill by Mooy to rob Rudy. The ball was going out on the bounce when Mooy goes and flicks it up and over Rudy, with the German international clueless. That was simply outstanding.
...
Germany are happy with keeping the ball. They just want to run down the clock. 
...
90+1' Timo Werner fires wide after an excellent run. The RB Leipzig forward evaded 3 challenges near the halfway line before cutting in and going across the face of goal. He tries to beat Ryan at the far post but it is wide.
...
4 minutes of additional time.
...
89' Goretzka fires over after being set up by Werner, who latched onto an excellent ball by Brandt. 
...
88' Behich makes a run down the left and tries to find Cahill with a cross but Mustafi is there to stop the cross. 
...
87' Substitution: The substitution that we have all been waiting for is here. Tim Cahill joins us. The veteran Australian comes on to replace Juric.
...
83' Germany have got back into their groove and have a half-chance to double their lead. There is a slight ping-pong in the box but no German player can slam it home.
...
80' And Leno it is, redeeming himself once again. A through ball is played to Juric and the forward almost gets on the end of it but for Leno, who sprints out of his box and makes a diving clearance.
...
78' Kruse is denied by Leno with the goalkeeper forced into making another good save. Australia believe here and they are not going down without a fight.
...
77' Substitution: Emre Can comes on to replace goalscorer Stindl.
...
75' OHHH!! Timo Werner almost scores the 4th for Germany.
Werner shrugged off Degenek before side-stepping to evade Sainsbury. The RB Leipzig forward tries to beat Ryan at the near post and although he does succeed with it, his shot cannons of the upright.
...
73' Troisi is denied by Leno. The German doesn't make a mess of this one. Troisi has just been introduced by the Socceroos and he almost makes an instant impact. He has the ball in the middle and is allowed to be in acres of space, the forward tries to curl it into the far corner but Leno is there to stop it.
...
We are into the last 20 minutes of the game and Australia have thrown caution to the wind.
...
70' Substitution: Rogic comes off to be replaced by Troisi.
...
Australia are preparing to send James Troisi on. 
...
68' Leckie bursts down the right flank and tries to square it for Juric in the middle but his cross is cut out in the middle and Germany start from the back.
...
Australia are enjoying possession as they try and find the equaliser here in Sochi. Can they do it?
...
64' Yellow Card: Sainsbury goes into the referee's books for a foul on Werner down the right flank.
...
We have a game on our hand folks and Germany are worried. We are set for a thrilling finish.
...
63' Substitution: Niklas Sule comes on to replace Brandt. 
...
57' Substitution: Germany are the first one to make a change with Timo Werner coming on to replace Sandro Wagner.
