Joachim Low says he is satisfied with his team's 6-0 World Cup qualifying win over Liechtenstein.
Speaking to the DFB official website, the Germany boss was quick to praise his squad for getting their campaign off on the right foot.
"Overall I am happy with the first step," Low said.
"We wanted three points and that's what we have got. We could have scored two or three more before half-time and then we would have sealed the result much earlier.
"The game was like a first round cup game in which the smaller team really wanted to cause an upset.
"We knew what to expect and went into the game with the right frame of mind. At half-time we told the players to keep the pace high and then the goals came at the right time."
Low refused to find words of criticism for out-of-form Bayern Munich striker Miroslav Klose, who started the game as captain in the absence of Michael Ballack.
"It would have been good for him and his confidence if he had scored, but he worked hard and I am not worried about him failing to find the net," he said.
"He will start getting goals again soon, just like Kevin Kuranyi and Mario Gomez who are also quality player."
