After the football class that the Germans received at the hands of the Netherlands, their technical director said that there would be many changes in the next match and that how it was, revolutionized all the 11 that lost against the tulips to visit France, giving way to the young blood, with a 3-4-3 unprecedented in Germany where the 3 very young strikers promised rhythm and depth, Gnabry-Werner-Sané. A middle field armored led by Kroos and with 3 central defenses Hummels, Sule, and Brandt.
The match started with a fantastic rhythm, a very active Germany that was looking to win it from the beginning and France that did not lock itself, it was a very exciting back and forth. The Germans took possession and with a penalty charged by Kroos, they would get ahead on the scoreboard. The first time was from Germany that seemed to return to its best football but still lacked punch. With the 1-0 it would go to rest.
The second half was the same as the first one, with a lot of dynamics but the one that dominated was France that started warning with Mbappé, first a supposed penalty not whistled and then a hand to hand that Neuer would take with one foot. France was overturning the court and at minute 62 Griezmann’s head would tie the game. Germany would try to react with the entry of Muller and Draxler, but they had run out of ideas.
The game was defined at minute 80 where Matuidi stepped on Hummels and was considered penalty by the referee, more than doubtful, non-existent, but without VAR … Griezmann would be responsible for collecting it and place the final 2-1 for the French that made himself leaders of the group while the Germans continue to sink.
It is time for Germany to think about a change of ideas, it is true that they have flashes of the game that led them to be champions in 2014. However, they can not keep pace and the lack of goal passes the bill, possibly we will see Germany descending to Division B of the League of Nations.
