Germany booked their place in the Confederations Cup final as Leon Goretzka scored twice in a devastating opening spell to Thursday's 4-1 semifinal win over Mexico.Attacking midfielder Goretzka ran riot in Sochi with goals on six and eight minutes before Timo Werner and substitute Amin Younes netted in the second half.Goretzka and Werner are now the tournament's joint top scorers with three goals apiece in Russia.Goretzka struck again soon after when Werner's pass split the Mexican defense open and he drove home.It was three shortly before the hour mark when Draxler's pass into the area found Jonas Hector, who drew Ochoa for Werner to tap home for his third goal in Russia after Sunday's double against Cameroon.Goretzka was replaced by Liverpool midfielder Emre Can for the final 23 minutes as Loew rested him for Sunday's final.
