Germany beats Malta 3-0

Cacau scored a goal in each half as a largely second-string Germany team beat Malta 3-0 in their benefit match against Malta on Thursday. Over 27,000 fans turned up to watch the match at Tivoli stadium in Aachen.

The Brazil-born Stuttgart striker opened the scoring with a 16th-minute header for his first goal in six games for Germany before adding the second in the 58th, again with a header. It were the first international goals for the 29-year-old Brazilian born.

Lukas Podolski, who set up Cacau’s second goal, had a role in Germany’s third when his low cross was turned in by Malta’s Kenneth Scicluna for an own goal in the 61st minute.

Despite the win, Germany’s head coach Joachim Loew was not entirely pleased with the performance.

“We scored too few goals,” Loew told reporters after the game. “We played well, created chances and that was positive, but we squandered too many of them.”

The national team’s next international friendly is scheduled for May 29th against Hungary in Budapest.
