Germany overcome battling Australia in Confederations Cup

Lars Stindl celebrates scoring for Germany against Australia at the Confederations Cup

World champions Germany beat Australia in Sochi to get their first Confederations Cup campaign since 2005 off to a winning start.

The Socceroos were 3-1 down when Tomi Juric's goal was allowed to stand despite a suspected handball after a review by the video assistant referee.

Lars Stindl had put Germany ahead before Celtic's Tom Rogic equalised.
