North Macedonia scored an 85th-minute winner through Eljif Elmas to stun hosts Germany 2-1 in their World Cup Group J qualifier on Wednesday as the Balkan country celebrated their greatest international victory.
Elmas slotted in after the four-times world champions had controlled the game but struggled to convert chances against the disciplined North Macedonians, who are ranked 65th in the world and came into the game as non-existent underdogs.
"Overall, it was disappointing to lose like that at home."
