Germany got their Group A campaign off to a winning start against Georgia as Max Meyer’s strike gave them a single goal victory.
At the other end of the field, Germany goalkeeper Oliver Schnitzler was in top form to deny the Georgians on more than one occasion.
Georgia, who qualified at England’s expense, started brightly and almost forced an early goal when Vano Tsilosani’s downwards header forced Schnitzler to pull off an impressive save.
Nika Akhvlediani and Davit Jikia caused the Germans plenty of problems throughout the early stages of the match and forced Schnitzler into action multiple times.
Leon Goretzka saw his effort fly past the post as Germany attempted to get back into the game.
The German side that came out for the second half looked completely changed but they still relied on their goalkeeper who denied Jakia from close range.
After 60 minutes, Meyer broke the deadlock. He jinked his way inside the box and beat Adamia in the Georgia goal to give the Germans an opening day victory in Slovenia.
Georgia failed to look as threatening after the goal, proving that their lack of clinical finishing earlier in the match could prove vital to their progress in this tournament.
