Germany suffer shock defeat to North Macedonia in World Cup qualifier


Germany men's national team had their 17-match winning streak in World Cup qualifiers abruptly ended Wednesday as they were humiliated to a shock 2-1 home defeat against North Macedonia.

Napoli midfielder Eljif Elmas scored the winner five minutes from time to cancel out Ilkay Gundogan's penalty after 37-year-old striker Goran Pandev had given the visitors a first-half lead.

After winning their opening World Cup qualifiers against Iceland and Romania, Wednesday's defeat is the latest setback suffered by German head coach Joachim Loew's since their humiliating 6-0 drubbing by Spain last November.
