The Munich player express sactisfaction though; for moving to the 2nd

place in groups D yesterday, but felt his team did not put up their

best, and should step up in the upcoming games.

Muller acknowledged that the Germans were wasteful in front of goal

after they overcame Georgia 2-0 in Euro 2016 qualifying on Sunday.

He doubled Germany's advantage a minute before half-time after Marco

Reus had opened the scoring five minutes earlier.

Their lead was never threatened and Joachim Low's men eased to a

victory that moves them within a point of Group D leaders Poland,

despite missing a host of further chances. Muller said to the German

Football

Association's (DFB) website: "I think the key to our success was that

we spent a lot of time in their half. We didn't always play the right

pass and we lost

the ball too often. "In the second half we could have made it easier

for ourselves. I have mixed feelings because we started strongly but

didn't manage to score after the break. However, it is nice to climb

up the table."

Low echoed the Bayern Munich forward's sentiments, adding: "If you

looked at the table ahead of the game you would have seen that we had to

win today.

"I was happy with how we played in the first half. We combined well and looked

dangerous. After the break we were a bit sloppy and made a few mistakes.

Georgia stayed deep and made it difficult for us."
