Germany's striker Mario Goetze celebrates scoring during their Euro 2016 qualifying football match against Poland in Frankfurt am Main, Germany, on September 4, 2015Striker Mario Goetze scored twice to seal Germany's 3-1 win over Poland on Friday as the hosts avenged last year's away defeat to top their Euro 2016 qualifying group. Having lost the corresponding fixture 2-0 in Warsaw last October -- Germany's first defeat to their neighbours in 19 matches -- the world champions gained sweet revenge by knocking Adam Nawalka's Poland from top of Group D. It was Poland's first defeat in seven Euro 2016 qualifiers in an impressive display from the Germans after several below-par performances last season.

Germany urged an end to "recriminations" as Britain said it would take in thousands more Syrian refugees -- but only directly from camps, not those already in overstretched Hungary, Greece and Italy who are demanding their EU partners do more to help.

The US unemployment rate has fallen to 5.1%, the nonfarm payroll figures showThe US unemployment rate fell to 5.1 percent in August, the lowest since early 2008, as the economy motored steadily ahead despite a global slowdown, the Labor Department said Friday. A modest 173,000 new jobs were created last month, below what was forecast, and there were some signs that the US jobs machine was still only in second gear -- wage growth remained slow, and labor force participation was still very low. "The weakness in August employment should not be over-interpreted," said Nariman Behravesh, chief economist at economic consultancy IHS.
