Van Dijk a doubt for Huddersfield clash after suffering injury

Low's Germany, who won the World Cup in 2014, have only one point from their opening two Nations League matches.

It was the hosts who threatened first at the Johann Cruyff Arena and Virgil van Dijk gave them the lead with half an hour on the clock as he pounced on a rebound from a Ryan Babel header that came back off the crossbar.

After their 3-0 defeat to the Netherlands on Saturday, Germany have now failed to score in three straight competitive games for the first time in their history.

Substitute Leroy Sane, controversially left out of Germany's World Cup squad and with much to prove in a national team jersey, was played into acres of space in the box but fired wide when he looked certain to score his first worldwide goal.

"After conceding, you could see that recent results have led to a lack of confidence", he said. That's hard to answer, we have clear chances.

Depay added a second in the 86th minute from a quick counter-attack after being set up by Quincy Promes, before Wijnaldum sealed the win in injury time with a low shot into the bottom corner.

They face world champions and group leaders France in the competition in Paris on Tuesday.

'It was a good game, we worked hard.

"We played very well at the beginning, created many chances, let them run without the ball and did everything we wanted to", Werner said in quotes published on UEFA's website.

Germany did, however, manage to defeat Peru 2-1 in a friendly on September 9.
