STUTTGART (AFP) - Germany's young guns proved they are fast becoming a force to be reckoned with as they turned on the style to beat Brazil 3-2 with rising star Mario Goetze in dazzling form. This is the first time Germany have beaten Brazil for 18 years and only the fourth time the hosts have beaten the South American giants in 21 meetings. After a goalless first 45 minutes, a second-half penalty by Bayern Munich's Bastian Schweinsteiger and a superb individual effort from Goetze put the hosts ahead before Brazil's Robinho converted a penalty on 71 minutes. The Germans made sure of victory when Bayer Leverkusen's Andre Shuerrle came off the bench to score the German's third on 80 minutes while Brazil's Neymar scored his side's second in the 92nd minute. This was the first time the two teams have met since 2003 and with the game at Stuttgart's Mercedes-Benz-Arena being televised in 190 countries, it lived up to it's billing as the clash of two of football's biggest names. "I am personally pleased that I have so many options now," said Germany coach Loew after youngsters Goetze, Schuerrle, Toni Kroos and Thomas Mueller all shone with play-maker Mesut Ozil left out to recover after touring with Real Madrid. "Mario Goetze has exceptional awareness and looks to find solutions to every problem on the pitch. It is the simple things he does which makes him so strong." This was the battle of the outrageously talented 19-year-old stars: Goetze against the spikey-haired Neymar and the German over-shadowed the silky-skilled South American. "That was not the result we wanted," admitted Neymar. "We must now work hard to ensure the victories to come."
