Germany qualified in style for Euro 2012 with an emphatic 6-2 win over Austria which could well spell the end of Dietmar Constantini's reign as Austria's coach.
Germany raced into a three-goal lead within 28 minutes with Mesut Ozil scoring twice - though Miroslav Klose attempted to claim the first - and Lukas Podolski also on target.
Marko Arnautovic pulled a goal back for Austria just before the break, but Ozil made it four just after the interval.
Martin Harnik again reduced the arrears, but further goals from Andre Schurrle and Mario Gotze completed the rout to take Joachim Low's men to Poland and Ukraine.
Germany raced into an eighth-minute lead as Ozil's shot bobbled into the bottom corner, though Klose led the celebrations after claiming to get a slight touch on the ball.
The Lazio striker was desperate to close on Gerd Muller's German record of 68 goals, and missed a chance to make inroads in the 17th minute when he lifted his shot high over the crossbar from a tight angle.
There was no doubt about who would claim Germany's second goal, though, as Ozil took the ball off Klose on the edge of the penalty area, nudged it past Gratzei and then swept it into the unguarded goal.
Five minutes later, Podolski made it three with his 43rd goal for Germany.
Holger Badstuber ventured forwards from the centre of the defence and exchanged passes with Podolski before feeding the Cologne striker, whose venomous shot beat Gratzei's feeble attempt to save with his foot.
Badstuber was then at fault at the other end as he lost Arnautovic, who pulled a goal back for Austria with a determined header from Florian Klein's cross.
Not even two minutes were on the clock in the second half when Ozil added his third and Germany's fourth.
A long punt out of the Germany defence following an Austria free-kick was headed on by Thomas Muller into the path of the Real Madrid midfielder, who held off Christian Fuchs and then got lucky with his shot deflecting off the toe of the Schalke defender to curl past the Austria goalkeeper.
Stuttgart forward Harnik scored another consolation for Austria in the 51st minute when he found a hole in the Germany defence to latch onto Arnautovic's overhead pass and volley past Neuer from just inside the penalty area.
But Schurrle ended any thoughts Austria had of a recovery in the 84th minute when he pounced on a loose ball inside the area to side-foot it in from near the penalty spot.
There was even time for Gotze to complete a comprehensive victory for Germany with practically his only touch of the game after coming on as a late substitute to turn Muller's pass in off the post.
