Mats Hummels' late header snatched a 2-1 win for Germany over Czech Republic as the world champions extended their perfect record in Group C of World Cup qualifying.

Vladimir Darida's wondergoal appeared to have given Czech Republic a boost in their attempt to reach the 2018 World Cup when his brilliant strike picked out the top corner from 25 yards.

But the world champions had other ideas and made it seven wins out of seven thanks to Hummels powering in a header from a flighted Toni Kroos free-kick with only three minutes remaining at the Eden Arena on Friday.

RB Leipzig striker Timo Werner earned a starting berth with three goals in four appearances at the Confederations Cup and he justified his selection in attack almost immediately.

After only three minutes, Arsenal midfielder Mesut Ozil sent Werner clear with a precise pass and the forward took his shot early to beat Tomas Vaclik in the bottom-left corner.

Darida's stunning drive swerved viciously into Marc-Andre ter Stegen's top-right corner to draw the hosts level, but Hummels' late header ensured Germany stay five points clear at the top of the group, with Karel Jarolim's side left seven points adrift of second-placed Northern Ireland, who won 3-0 away to San Marino.
