It didn't take long for Richarlison to complete his hattrick, as he curled a shot into the far bottom corner in the 30th minute after Cunha broke through the lines to launch the attack.

A volley from Amiri in the 51st minute gave Germany a goal, after which the ten-man team went on to score another goal in the 83rd minute. Hoping to equalize, Germany's hope was dashed as Brazilian midfielder Paulinho gave a fine finish in the 93rd minute, closing the game for good.
