Goals from Matthias Ginter, Leon Goretzka and Toni Kroos, who scored twice, helped Germany win the match and finish first in Group C ahead of the Netherlands.
But despite the qualification, Joachim LOw admitted that his team could not claim the status of "favorit"at the next Euro.
Kroos, Goretzka and Ginter, the three scorers of the match
A logical statement despite three victories in this competition (1972, 1980 and 1996).
In full reconstruction since the debacle of the Russian World, the Mannschaft wins but does not impress yet, far from it.
And besides, the public is not mistaken. On Saturday night, only 35,000 supporters came to cheer for the national team at Borussia-Park in MOnchengladbach, an enclosure containing 54,000 seats.
Portugal qualified in pain
The title holder won his ticket by beating Luxembourg 2-0. A sluggish victory against a very weak team that was obtained thanks to goals from Bruno Fernandes and Cristiano Ronaldo.
This is the 99th goal of CR7's career in the jersey of the Selecão.

Davis Cup: up to the new formula
And the tennis season is not quite over. since today begins the great final of Davis Cup in Madrid.
18 countries divided into six hens first compete in a group stage.
At the end of this last, the first of each group, and some best seconds, will come out in a final phase which will start with 1/4 final.
This new format, which looks more or less like a World Cup but for a shorter period, does not please everyone.
Australia and France, defending champion, have been very critical of this formula, which they consider "denaturing the essence"the only competition by tennis team.
For this 108th edition new look, the good point is obviously the presence of many stars who had neglected the competition in recent seasons including Novak Djokovic and Rafael Nadal.
