Serge Gnabry scored twice as Germany thrashed Armenia 6-0 on Sunday in Stuttgart to replace the visitors at the top spot of their World Cup qualifying group.
Gnabry scored twice in the first 15 minutes, with Marco Reus, Timo Werner, Jonas Hofmann and 19-year-old Karim Adeyemi also on target.
Recall that the Germans usurped the shell-shocked Armenians, who last lost a competitive game more than a year ago, to go two points clear at the top of Group J.
The Germans made amends for their shock home defeat by North Macedonia last March to climb the table.
The Germans took nearly every clear chance they created and pressed the visitors mercilessly.

When the teams last met in a friendly just before the 2014 World Cup, Germany handed out a 6-1 thumping and this performance was reminiscent of the days when the Germans returned from Brazil with the world title seven years ago.
Germany are now top of Group J on 12 points, with Armenia dropping to second on 10 points and next up for Germany is a trip to Iceland on Wednesday. Meanwhile Armenia face Liechtenstein.
