Germany - Thomas Müller 18', 34', Ilkay Gundogan 53'
Scotland - Mats Hummels 28' (og), James McArthur 43'
After maximum points in the two September qualifiers, Germany now need only one point from their remaining two games to secure an automatic place in France!
On a personal note, the victory also took Jogi's competitive win percentage rate in his 75th game to an impressive 80%.

"It was a difficult game, because Scotland didn't contribute much in an attacking sense. For that reason, we had to find a balance between dynamic play and patience. Our goal was to pick up six points from the two games, which we have done" Joachim Löw Delighted With Win Over Scotland
"The objective of Poland and this game was six points and that is exactly what we have done," Löw is quoted as saying by ESPN FC. "So I am proud to say that we have made big steps towards France in 2016."Müller has a sixth sense - Löw
"Muller has a sixth sense," Germany coach Low told reporters. "He only thinks of scoring, scoring and scoring. You can't teach that."Löw: "I never had any doubt" - an interview on dfb.de
Joachim Löw spoke of achieving his aim this week - six points and a huge step towards qualifying. "I never had any doubt. I was always convinced we'd be able to qualify, but even I was surprised how quickly the team could take things in when I had a full crop of players. They only needed three or four training sessions to make things work, which is one of this side's key strengths. Last year we rotated the team a lot, so you couldn't demand too much of them. This week, however, I've been convinced that the team is very strong. When we're given time, things work very well."
He was also asked about two of his team - Ilkay Gundogan, who replaced Karim Bellarabi in the starting line up, and Emre Can, in his second game for his country.

Wird Joachim Löw bester Bundestrainer aller Zeiten? Die EM ist eine "Etappe", die WM 2018 das Ziel - 7 September 2015
"Will Joachim Löw become the best Bundestrainer of all time?" asks eurosport.de
Arriving at the press conference straight from the flight from Frankfurt for his first ever visit to Scotland as Bundestrainer, Joachim Löw spoke of his excitement at being in Glasgow (even though at first glance, he did look rather cold!). He had never previously visited Hampden Park, either as a coach or a player, but knows the unique atmosphere there will be there, and the passion of the Scots who will be fully behind their team.
"Going to Hampden is a first for me," said Low. "I haven't been fortunate enough to go there as a player or coach. I'm looking forward to it, with the unique atmosphere, pride and passion of not just the Scottish players but the Scottish public.He had no injuries or fitness concerned from Friday night and thus there was no reason to change the line-up for Monday night as all players who were on the pitch performed admirably. However having said that, he might be 'tempted to change a few positions'.
When asked about Jerome Boateng and Mats Hummels: "The performance against Poland was good and tactically they were also sound. Jerome and Mats both meet the requirements for world class centre-backs. Their forward movement is good, they can build attacks, they make good challenges for the ball and deny the opposition chance to launch counter attacks. Both players are immensely important for our attacking game and for our defence."
Jonas Hector was voted man of match on DFB website for Friday, he was sked how did he feel about the full backs "Very content that we have several options, Can had a good debut, had good situation, needs improving, pretty good job not in usual position. Will leave line-up open for time being, see what today's training session brings. Also looking for players to bring on as subs. Gundogan, for example, did this brilliantly against Poland, added and brought on a great deal of stability to side, and that is what he wants in a substitute. The position of left and right back continues to be difficult, as Philipp Lahm was the role model for both positions, and now he has retired it is difficult to replace him on a one-to-one basis. However Jonas Hector and Emre Can are players that we are closely watching and will continue working with them. They themselves know they need to improve for 2016, but I am fairly confident."
Jens Lehmann TV criticism of a and 'lack of pace' in the German team was swuiftly countered by Jogi. "The truth is both backs were moving up high in Poland game, leaving team somewhat vulnerable at the back. This helped Poland score their goal. Polish chances resulted from Germany losing possession too easily and some misplaced passes, had conceded almost identical goal against a previous opponent." He hinks it is not a matter of being quick of the mark generally speaking but being mentally alert and that is what counts in elite football. With Can having moved up, other players should have realised there was a danger so space was wide open. Does not think pace is an issue with German, incredibly fast players like Boateng, Hummels and the ones up front, so what counts is not physical pace but mental alertness, being able to read the game and quickly making the right decisions.
Ilkay Gundogan - when he came on as substitute, it made all the difference in midfield defensive stability. He had already seen in the training sessions that they had had that he is now back to the form of two years ago in that he was oustanding in Amsterdam and Paris. This is what makes him an outstanding player, agile, quick on the turn, happy to have such an outstanding player back especially with Sami Khedira's injuries. Ilkay is definitely going to be one of his men for the European Championships and the 2018 World Cup.
Bayern Munich midfielder Mario Gotze's seemingly uncertain club future is of little concern to Germany coach Joachim Low.Finally, he was asked whether there are any other iconic places he would like to visit, now having added Hampden Park to his stadium list. Jogi replied always special to play there in Scotland or Great Britain with very fair minded fans. But he immediately said Rio was special and will always remember the stadium. A place he would like to add would be the Stade de France in Paris next year. Though Jogi has already been there as Bundestrainer, in 2013, it was totally understood what he meant!

It will be a totally different game [from Poland], because Scotland will be forced to play attacking football if they are to keep pace at the top of the standings after their defeat in Georgia. We will be prepared and highly focused in order to play a good game and also win in Scotland.He spoke of him scoring on his debut against Brazil in Stuttgart, added that young players will always have their highs and lows, especially after major tournaments and said he had told him to toughen up and sure his time at Bayern Munich will come.
