The DFB squad started the World Cup Qualifying with a rather disappointing 3-0 win against the Faroe Islands. Disappointing in the sense that they should beat a team like this at least 6-0, and perhaps even double digits. On the other hand, the Faroese did pack the box and defended stoutly, and GK Gunnar Nielsen was brilliant, with several great saves. Overall, the German attackers (especially Klose, Müller and Khedira) wasted enough chances to win several matches in a rout.
Still, I suppose this is basically just a Pflichtsieg, and they got the required points.
