Bucharest, (APP - UrduPoint / Pakistan Point News - 29th Mar, 2021 ) :A first-half goal by Serge Gnabry was enough to seal a tight 1-0 away win for Germany against Romania on Sunday in their World Cup qualifier.
The Bayern Munich winger has scored 15 goals in just 19 appearances for the Mannschaft.
Germany out-muscled their hosts with 18 shots on goal, twice as many as the Romanians.
However, the hosts finished stronger in Bucharest with clear chances in the dying stages.
Loew was caught on camera singing the chorus of the Barry White hit "You're the First, the Last, My Everything" before Saturday's pre-match press conference in Bucharest.
However, "Can't Get Enough" would have been more appropriate as his side picked up where they left off against Iceland.
It was almost 2-0 four minutes later when Joshua Kimmich clattered the crossbar with a deflected shot from 25 metres.
It stayed 1-0 at the break, but Romania goalkeeper Florin Nita kept his side in the game with a string of saves early in the second-half.
With an hour gone, Nita gratefully gathered the ball after Ilkay Gundogan failed to get a clean strike.
Nita was again called into action with ten minutes left to parry a shot by Chelsea striker Timo Werner.
Then Nicolae Stanciu broke away, but could only fire into the side netting as the visitors held on.
