VIDEO: Germany 5-2 Italy - Germany Becomes the 1st Team to Score 5 Goals against Italy Since 1957

Germany became the first team to score five goals in a game against Italy since 1957 in a Nations League demolition in Monchengladbach.

Germany led 5-0 after 69 minutes through Joshua Kimmich, Ilkay Gundogan's penalty, Thomas Muller and a quick-fire Timo Werner double.

Wilfried Gnonto, 18, became Italy's youngest-ever scorer and Alessandro Bastoni headed in a second.

This was Germany's first competitive win against Italy ever.

The last time Italy conceded so many goals in a game was 65 years ago when they lost 6-1 to Yugoslavia in the Central European International Cup.

Italy keeper Gianluigi Donnarumma said: "We are angry, there are no excuses tonight. We have to look each other in the eyes and restart in order to show that this is not the real Italy. We lacked everything tonight.

"We are very sorry for the fans, especially the Italians living in Germany. We all made mistakes tonight. I made a big one and I take responsibility for that."

Germany are unbeaten in 13 games under Flick although this was their first Nations League victory after three draws. They are one point behind group leaders in Hungary.

Roberto Mancini's Italy had been unbeaten in the group.

Hungary's 4-0 win over England means the two Euro 2020 finalists conceded a combined nine goals on Tuesday.

Elsewhere, Belgium kept the pressure on the Netherlands at the top of Group A4 with a 1-0 win over Poland.

Michy Batshuayi's diving header from Youri Tielemans' cross in the first half proved to be the only goal in Warsaw.
