Germany had to come from behind in Netanya, but goals either side of the break from Patrick Herrmann and Sebastian Rudy secured them victory.

The opening goal came Russia's way on 22-minutes when Alan Dzagoev fired home. Germany's clumsy defending saw them fail to clear and after an exchange of passes with Shota Bibilov - Dzagoev, a full international, found the back of the net.

Germany pushed on and had a couple of good chances to level, but Kevin Volland could not find the target.

Volland then turned creator when he broke down the flank on 34 minutes and crossed for Patrick Herrmann level.

Then the game swung in Germany's favour, and for a second successive match, Russia found themselves reduced to 10 men when Georgi Schennikov received his marching orders for fouling Tony Jantschke.

Russia coped well with 10 men although Germany created chances through Herrmann and Sebastian Polter, before Denis Cheryshev fired just over.

Then Germany went ahead on 69 minutes via the penalty spot as Taras Burlak brought down the impressive Herrmann. Second-half substitute Sebastian Rudy stepped up to convert.

Russia came close to an equaliser when Fedor Smolov fired against the post, but they could not find a leveller as they departed the tournament with the same record as England with three defeats.
