"In the first half we lacked in chance conversion but due to our shape we were able to increase the pace in the second half. We still need a few training sessions in Brazil to get used to the temperatures, Germany coach Loew said."
Berlin, June 7 - Germany wrapped up a 6-1 win over Armenia thanks to six second half goals at an outsold Coface-Arena in Mainz.

Joachim Loew's men controlled the proceedings for most of the time Friday, yet the Nationalelf had to wait until the second half to start their goal fest against the resilient visitors, reports Xinhua.

Lukas Podolski played a key role in the victory thanks to his goal and three assists.

In the first half we lacked in chance conversion but due to our shape we were able to increase the pace in the second half. We still need a few training sessions in Brazil to get used to the temperatures, Germany coach Loew said.

Germany depart Saturday from Frankfurt for Brazil where Loew and his 23 men will be staying in a recently built resort Campo Bahia in Santo Andre before they face Portugal in their first group game in Salvador June 16.
