Jurgen Klinsmann tries to figure out what went wrong for Germany against North Macedonia (1:04)

North Macedonia scored an 85th-minute winner by Eljif Elmas to stun the German hosts 2-1 in their World Cup qualifier in Group J on Wednesday as the Balkan country celebrated its biggest international victory

Elmas signed up after the four-time world champions controlled the game, but struggled to convert the odds against the disciplined North Macedonians, who are ranked 65th in the world and entered the game in as 2800 outsiders

It was Germany’s first home defeat in World Cup qualifying in 20 years in coach Joachim Low’s last qualifying game before his departure after the European Championship in this year. summer “It’s bitterly disappointing,” said Low

“We weren’t fresh enough, we made mistakes When we played fast we were dangerous but we didn’t find the tools really threatening

Despite Germany owning 70 percent in the first half and Leon Goretzka shooting the crossbar, it was the visitors who scored when 37-year-old Goran Pandev was left unmarked in the surface to touch at home in the first half timeout

The Germans had their opponents boxed in their own half of the field, but other than an effort from Serge Gnabry they had little to show until Leroy Sane was brought back into the box

Gundogan’s 63rd-minute penalty brought the hosts down, but despite late pressure and a golden chance for Timo Werner with 10 minutes left, Germany couldn’t find a winner

They were fortunate enough not to concede a penalty for an Emre Can handball, but were still penalized for not asserting their dominance when Elmas found space in the box to make a cut for the winner

“These guys made North Macedonia proud of the winners of four World Cup titles and three European championships,” said North Macedonia coach Igor Angelovski

“We have never beaten a team with so many titles Now we have to rest because what we have achieved has not yet flowed”

The victory lifted North Macedonia to six points in second place, ahead of Germany on goal difference in Group J and three behind Armenia
