Video: Lars Stindl Scores Germany’s Confederations Cup Opener Against Australia

Germany opened their Confederations Cup campaign against Australia this afternoon and it took them just five minutes to carve open the Aussies.

As the world champions, Joachim Löw’s side would usually be the overwhelming favourites to win the entire competition, but given the defence of their World Cup is next summer, Löw has opted to bring a fresher, younger and less experienced squad to the table.

That means opportunities for the likes of Lars Stindl,who is coming into this tournament off the back of a very impressive season at Borussia Mönchengladbach.

He might be 28 now, but today is only Stindl’s fourth senior cap, and his second goal.

It was a nice and composed finish, we’re sure you’ll agree:

Celtic fans will know first-hand how dangerous Stindl can be, having played against the Hoops in the Champions League last season.

We reckon he could do a job for a much bigger club – what do you think?
