Did I understood well? Is he now with the same goal tally as Voeller and Klinsi?

I think so. I think the German commentator said only G. Müller and Klose are ahead of him.

LOL. Almost the 2nd.

I got to see the second half.
The last match I'd seen was El Clasico.
I almost can't believe that Germany and Australia were playing the same sport as Barcelona and Madrid :(

Well, no one was rolling around the floor as if he was mortally assassinated by a slight touch in today's game.

Don't forget that Podolski is the third most capped player ever for Germany. A thank you to Loew would've been nice.

I really liked Loew’s stance in this game. He started with a team of new, peripheral and returning players. At 1-1, he brought on Rudy. At 2-1 down, he brought on Kramer, Schurrle, Podolski and Kruse, leaving the World Cup big guns like Schweinsteiger, Kroos, Mueller, Boateng and Hummels on the bench, even at the risk of an embarrassing loss to a much lower ranked nation. That was what friendlies (German Testspiele literally “test games”) are for. He gave players their chance, come what may. On a poor night for Germany, Loew’s stance will remain in my memory for a long, long time.

Loew should be thankful that he lived in times when this was possible since the plan is for the UEFA Nations League to replace all friendlies in 2018 and Germany will be in the top group meaning that all games will be against top European guns so there won't be opportunities like this, at that point I can only see scrimmages against local teams the way to experiment.

As many I consider this type of friendly close to useless. The lessons learned here: that 3 on the back is high risk (like it is for Bayern), that Zieler is not NT material, that Germany is struggling to find reliable fullbacks (wingbacks in the 3 on the back system), that Podolski can score if you give him balls in giftwrap, and so on, most of us knew them before this game and we are all outsiders.

Now Germany goes on the play an almost useless qualifier because with the current format half of the team in each group qualifies for the EURO, I can't wait for this insanity to end.

Nations League will actually replace Euro qualifiers in fall 2018. And there will still be friendlies, especially for Germany, as League A's groups will only have three teams. That means four matches against two good-to-great European teams. Two matches in one week (Sat/Sun and Tue/Wed) in September and two matches in another week in October or November.

We don't know what else Löw learned from this game.

And unfortunately we cannot clone Neuer. NT material is everyone who is the 2nd and 3rd best keeper with a German passport. Ter Stegen, Leno, Trapp etc. had their fair share of gaffes this season, too.

Actually, Euro qualifiers will still be taking place like usual. The Nations League is another opportunity for countries who didn't qualify the usual route to have another chance at making it to the Euro championships through playoffs in March 2020.

The qualifiers will still take place, but they will not start when they usually do, which is in the fall after the World Cup. Instead that time will be reserved for Nations League and friendlies. The Euro qualifiers are being pushed back and will start in March 2019 and finish in November 2019.

Look under UEFA Nations League>European Qualifiers for UEFA Euro 2020:
