Germany’s players were pleased to come away as group winners in what they called an ‘important game’ for their self-belief.
 
It was striker Niclas Fullkrug who came off the bench to grab an equaliser against Switzerland that sent Germany through to the last 16 top of the group, after being 0-1 down until the final minutes.
 
Fullkrug struck with a trademark towering header in the second minute of stoppage time at the end of the game to make it 1-1 and spare the blushes of the hosts, who enjoyed plenty of possession but struggled to get shots on target against the Swiss defence.
 
Germany topped the group on seven points, with the Swiss second on five and Hungary third on three points, with Scotland finishing bottom of the group with a single point.
 
The Germans will find out their last 16 opponents on Tuesday when England meet Slovenia and Denmark play Serbia to complete Group C, with the second-placed team in that group set to meet the Germans in Dortmund June 29.
