A youthful Germany side weathered a second-half fightback by Australia to open their Confederations Cup campaign with a 3-2 win over the Socceroos on Monday in Sochi.

Goals by Lars Stindl and Leon Goretzka either side of a penalty from captain Julian Draxler saw Germany home to leave them second in Group B behind Chile, who they face in Kazan on Thursday.

Celtic midfielder Tommy Rogic and Tomi Juric scored for Australia, who had a string of late chances to equalise.
