Bayern Munich star Serge Gnabry was on fire in the first half for Germany during Die Mannschaft’s impressive and dominant victory over Armenia.

The 26-year-old attacker scored goals in the 6th and 15th minutes, respectively, to power Germany to an early 2-0 lead over the visitors.

For Gnabry, this was welcomed occurrence as Germany had come under some criticism for only defeating Liechtenstein 2-0 earlier in the week.

“We were strong in front of goal, even though we could have scored more. It is always a great feeling to score and to help the team,” said Gnabry (as captured by Tz). “We are taking that euphoria with us now, so we can put in another good performance on Wednesday and get a result again then.”

For Chelsea FC’s Timo Werner, contributing a goal and an assist in Stuttgart — where he was born — made this effort special.

”It’s always special coming back to Stuttgart and then to score. I think we showed some very good attacks tonight, we had very good movement and were really pressing high,” Werner said (as captured by Twitter account @iMiaSanMia). “Armenia gave us more space than Liechtenstein did on Thursday.”
