Germany are targeting another three points in their bid to confirm their 2014 FIFA World Cup Brazil™ berth in Tuesday's qualifier away to minnows Faroe Islands.

With Joachim Loew's side five points clear in Group C following Friday's 3-0 win in Munich over Austria, bottom side Faroe Islands are not expected to slow Germany's march to Brazil 2014 after losing all seven of their qualification games thus far.

Germany can confirm their qualification if second-placed Sweden fail to beat Kazakhstan on Tuesday, but Loew's team are focused simply on leaving the remote north-west Atlantic archipelago with a victory.

"If we go there with all seriousness, we won't have any problem and will come away with a clear win," said Germany midfielder Sami Khedira. "The Faroe Islands aren't the strongest team in the group and we have to press them from the start."

Dortmund midfielder Marco Reus sat out Monday's flight to the remote islands having suffered with a stomach infection over the weekend and his place on the left wing is expected to go either to Chelsea's Andre Schuerrle or Schalke teenager Julian Draxler.

Loew has said he expects to make "two or three changes to the team at most" from the side who saw off Austria while veteran Miroslav Klose will start as the lone striker.

On Friday, Klose equalled Gerd Mueller's 39-year-old record for the most goals in a Germany shirt when he scored for the 68th time on his 129th appearance, while Bayern Munich pair Toni Kroos and Thomas Muller also netted against Austria.

Tuesday's match will be played on artificial turf in the Faroe Island's main town Torshavn with a capacity crowd of 6,000 expected, and both teams will stay in the same hotel.

"We have been warned to expect difficult conditions, we have to adapt to the pitch as soon as possible, but with the 3-0 result behind us, we are confident we can take the next step towards the World Cup," said Arsenal centre-back Per Mertesacker.

There is palpable relief in the German camp after they held Austria goalless having leaked nine goals in their previous three friendlies. "The most important thing about the Austria win was that we got back a bit of self-confidence we lost against Paraguay," admitted Mertesacker after Germany drew 3-3 at home to Paraguay in August.

It was an assured performance against the Austrians leaving Arsenal's new star midfielder Mesut Ozil insisting Germany had shown the rest of the group who was "boss".

Germany, currently second in the FIFA/Coca-Cola World Ranking, have won all three of their previous meetings against Faroe Islands, who occupy 175th place in the rankings.

"If we take care of our game, as we did against Austria, I think we will beat both the Faroe Islands and Ireland," said Loew, whose side then face the Republic of Ireland in Cologne on 11 October before their final qualifier away to Sweden four days later in Stockholm.
