5 Things We Learned from Germany's Win Against Armenia
Michael Probst/Associated Press

Germany concluded their final test match before taking off to the World Cup in Brazil in dominant fashion, beating Armenia 6-1 in Mainz.

A subdued first half gave way to a late flurry of goals in the second with Germany scoring five goals in the final 18 minutes of the match.

There were no shortage of talking points in this game. It was coach Joachim Low's final chance to see the team before they fly to Brazil on Saturday, and it was also a landmark game for Miroslav Klose who became Germany's all-time record goalscorer with his goal.

The biggest talking point, however, was the injury to Marco Reus who may just miss out on the World Cup due to an ankle injury picked up in the game.

Overall the game gave Low much to think about heading to Brazil, including not only thinking of a potential replacement for Reus but also making some key personnel decisions ahead of their game against Portugal in a little over a week.

Let's look at the most notable takeaways from Germany's final test before Brazil.
