Head coach Joachim Low missed the trip to Barysaw near Minsk after injuring himself in a sporting accident so assistant Coach Marcus Sorg took over in his place and saw his team take an early lead through Leroy Sane.
Pressing violently Germany won possession high up the pitch before Joshua Kimmich starting in midfield rather than at full-back thread the ball through to Sane who cut inside before firing home left-footed.
The visitors enjoyed the lion’s share of possession in a dominant first half but goalkeeper Manuel Neuer was nevertheless twice called into action first pulling off an acrobatic save from a Naumov header and then delighting the traveling fans with a series of tricks and turns near the corner flag to escape the Belarusian press.
If Germany could be criticized for anything then it was for the fact that they only led by one goal at half-time but Reus changed that just after the hour mark finishing coolly after Serge Gnabry had fluffed his lines.
Sane almost made it three late on when he climbed to meet Matthias Ginter’s cross but his header came back off the post. Germany wasn’t that efficient but need not have worried as they climbed above the Netherlands into second in Group C behind Northern Ireland. Their qualifying run continues on Tuesday when they face Estonia.
