After a 4-0 win over North Macedonia on Monday, Germany clinched their place in the 2022 FIFA World Cup in Qatar.
Apart from the hosts Qatar, who qualified automatically, the four-time World Cup winners are the first team to qualify for next year’s competition.
Timo Werner’s double, sandwiched between goals from Chelsea teammate Kai Havertz and debutant Jamal Musiala in the second half, gave Germany a thumping victory in Skopje.
With two games remaining in UEFA qualification Group J, they are safely through with an eight-point lead over Romania.
In other European qualifying action, Wales moved a step closer to securing second place in Group E with a tense 1-0 win over Estonia in Tallinn.
The hosts lost a few of chances to draw level, but Kiefer Moore’s early goal proved the difference between the two sides.
Wales now has control of their destiny, since they are level on points with the Czech Republic but have a game in hand, with Belgium certain to finish first in the group.
Moore, however, will miss Wales’ next match against Belarus when the referee issued a yellow card for a raised arm as he jostled for position in the box.
