The World Cup has been over for Germany for 109 days after the historic preliminary round off. But Jogi Löw (58) didn’t really make any progress despite his great analysis and announced change.
0:3 against Holland – Jogi, so we relegate!
After the 0:0 against France Löw is still waiting for the first victory in the Nations League and the first compulsory game victory after the World Cup in Russia. In the new competition it goes from now on also against the relegation in the league B.
Is Lew’s 2014 World Champion Axis still the right key to success? The starting line-up once again includes five regulars from the title summer: Neuer, Hummels, Boateng, Müller and Kroos. Löw before the game: “The axis is important. I trust these players.”
No courage for something new, no ideas in the game, no cold-bloodedness in front of the goal!
Young hopefuls like Sané (57th for Müller), Brandt (68th for Uth) and Süle see Löw (still) as a supplementary player. The only surprise is that DFB newcomer Uth makes it into the starting eleven for Schalke despite zero goals for the season. Check out Wild Tornado for more details about their promotions and bonuses.
Hummels: “It’s a question of the missing exploitation of chances – clearly. We lost 3-0 in a game that I think we have to win. We’ll definitely get our asses kicked, but we don’t have that much to blame ourselves for.”
30th minute: Corner for Holland, new player moves off the line, but doesn’t get to the ball. Babel puts a header to the crossbar, van Dijk nods the ball in the replay – 0:1.
The defender knows his way around Germany. His coach Jürgen Klopp is in Liverpool. The English paid 78 million euros for van Dijk in January to Southampton – a transfer record for a defender.
It takes 15 minutes until the Löw-Elf gets going. Manuel Neuer had to save for the first time after only two minutes. Werner (15.) and Müller (18.) have good chances, but don’t get the ball over the line. Sané misses after the break from six meters (65.). Wijnaldum gives the preliminary decision for Holland (80.), Depay makes it better six minutes later after a Draxler-Bock – 0:2.
In injury time (90 +3.) Wijnaldum makes Holland’s highest win against Germany perfect!
With Holland, the upheaval seems to be better than with Germany. Stars like Robben, Sneijder, van Persie and van der Vaart have retired from the national team. Coach Ronald Koeman (in office since February) consistently relies on talent.
Is this also the way for Jogi? On Tuesday it’s Paris against France. It will be exciting to see who will be in the starting line-up.
