DURBAN, South Africa — Germany scored several lovely goals Sunday night in a 4-0 rout of Australia.

Germany scored two goals in each half and Australia's Tim Cahill was sent off as the three-time champion surged to the top of Group D at the World Cup.

"I think the way we set up our attacks is something we've been working on intensively," Germany coach Joachim Loew said. "But we've also worked on how we play off the ball — to move into unused space. We were very good on the ball tonight, and we created beautiful goals."

Lukas Podolski and Miroslav Klose scored in the first 30 minutes as Australia coach Pim Verbeek's defensive tactics backfired.

Thomas Mueller and Cacau also scored against an overwhelmed Australian defense in the second half after Cahill was red-carded in the 56th minute for a late tackle on Bastian Schweinsteiger.
