In addition to praising the Germany forward, the coach expects the world champions will seal Euro 2016 qualification against Republic of Ireland

Joachim Low has lauded Thomas Muller for his "sixth sense" after he starred in Germany 's 3-2 Euro 2016 qualification victory over Scotland on Monday.

The Bayern Munich forward was the star for Germany at Hampden Park, setting up Ilkay Gundogan's decisive strike having seen his first-half double cancelled out by a Mats Hummels own goal and James McArthur's fine, lofted effort.

"Muller has a sixth sense," Germany coach Low told reporters. "He only thinks of scoring, scoring and scoring. You can't teach that."

The world champions head to Republic of Ireland for a Group D clash on October 8 knowing victory will guarantee their spot in France next summer.

"I am very happy we won tonight, too. It was difficult for us but, at the end of the match, the reality is that we were the better team.

"We expected them to do everything because it was maybe their last chance to qualify."

Germany are two points clear of second-placed Poland and four points clear of third-placed Ireland with two games to go in qualification.
