Download video: San Marino 0 – 8 Germany [2018 World Cup Qualifier] Highlights 2016
The former Arsenal forward struck thrice, with goals from Khedira, Volland, an own goal and a double from Jonas Hector concluding the scoring
A hat-trick from debutant Serge Gnabry helped Germany breeze past minnows San Marino 8-0 to extend their lead at the top of World Cup qualification Group C.
Gnabry’s trio, a brace from Jonas Hector, Sami Khedira and Kevin Volland strikes and a late own goal sealed victory for the world champions in a game which often resembled a training exercise against a country ranked 199 places below them.
The win means Joachim Low’s men remain top of Group C with a perfect record from their opening four games.
The absence of key players and weak opposition allowed Low to hand international debuts to Gnabry and 19-year-old Bayer Leverkusen right-back Benjamin Henrichs.
The 21-year-old Werder Bremen winger enjoyed a first appearance to remember and will cherish the hat-trick, despite the standard of Germany’s opponents.
Germany inflicted San Marino’s heaviest defeat when the two sides last met here in 2006, emerging 13-0 winners, but only a flurry of late goals saw them inflict a similarly emphatic victory.
San Marino did their best to frustrate their visitors by sitting incredibly deep early on, but it took just seven minutes for Germany to carve them open.
Stand-in skipper Khedira rounded Aldo Simoncini to slide home, before Gnabry grabbed his first moments later with a neat finish after a poor clearance.
San Marino could have pulled a surprise goal back when a corner bounced off Marco Berardi inside the Germany six-yard box.
