BERLIN -- Joachim Loew's men cruised to a 3-0 victory over Czech Republic by courtesy of Thomas Mueller's brace in World Cup qualifying Group C on Saturday.

The reigning FIFA World Cup champions reaped the second win in as many games, as the goals from Thomas Mueller and Toni Kroos secured a comfortable win at sold out Volkspark stadium in Hamburg.

The visitors from Czech Republic staged an offensively minded performance while Germany implemented a wait-and-see strategy before Thomas Mueller broke the deadlock with 13 minutes into the game after poking home Mario Goetze's square pass at the far post.

Despite Germany's early goal the visitors continued to play offensively allowing the hosts to work out chance after chance as Mueller and Goetze squandered promising opportunities before the break.

After the restart, Germany remained in control of the proceedings on the pitch as Toni Kroos slotted home Joshua Kimmich's square pass from outside of the box to make it 2-0 on the scoreboards with four minutes into the second half.
