    GOAL for Germany! There's the breakthrough and it's Havertz who gets it! They finally manage to carve North Macedonia's defence open as Muller collects a ball through and he shows all of his nous to draw the keeper and tee up Havertz, who rolls the ball into the empty net.
  • 49'
    Havertz concedes a free-kick for a foul on Nikolov.
  • 46'
    And we're back underway!!
  • 45'
    HT: Macedonia 0-0 Germany! Everything continues as it started, 0-0. It stopped raining and the match was entertaining, but without goals. The highlight was Werner's shot that hit the post in injury time. See you in 15 minutes!
  • 45'
    45+2: Timo Werner hits the woodwork! Off the post! Germany still on the front foot and again Werner is able to get a shot away. This time it is out of the reach of Dimitrievski, but comes back off the base of the post!
  • 45'
    4 minutes added on!
  • 44'
    Another chance for Werner to shoot but again it lacks the fizz to really test Dimitrievski.
  • 40'
    Gnabry is getting into dangerous positions and twice the ball has just not fallen for him. This time he is able to get a show away but he drags the effort wide of the far post.
  • 36'
    Kehrer concedes a free-kick for a foul on Kostadinov.
  • 31'

    S. Ristovski is adjudged to be in an offside position.
  • 29'
    Macedonia sub: Stefan Spirovski on for Arijan Ademi.
  • 25'
    Twenty-five minutes gone and although Germany have dominated possession, they are yet to create a clear chance. North Macedonia, meanwhile, are trying to create something on the counterattack.
  • 24'
    Corner for Germany conceded by Dimitrievski.
  • 22'
    Ademi is penalised for a foul on Havertz. It will be a dangerous free-kick chance for the visitors though, just outside the penalty area.
  • 20'
    Corner awarded to Germany.
  • 16'
    Velkovski darts towards the near post to win the header from the corner but he can only send the stooping effort wide of the near post.
  • 16'
    No inroads from Kimmich's corner and North Macedonia are able to break and end the move with a corner of their own.
  • 13'
    Lively start from Havertz, and he crosses again from the left, this time from the byline and Muller, leaning back, can't direct the header on target.
  • 10'
    The stadium is at 50 per cent capacity, but the North Macedonia fans who do have tickets are giving their side great support.
  • 4'
    Nikolov is adjudged to be in an offside position.
  • 2'
    Kimmich has an attempt on goal, but Dimitrievski makes a good save.
