DFB-Elf after triumph against Italy in the individual criticism: Germany shines – but a problem child remains
Written by insideindyhomes

The 5:2 sealed the first mandatory victory against Italy in history. They also took second place in Group 3.

While Timo Werner rehabilitated himself with his brace and gained some self-confidence, Leroy Sané didn’t really make progress.

The FC Bayern winger, who has often been criticized recently, was not able to convince on Tuesday evening either and was the only weakness in the DFB team.

The German team in the individual review:

Manuel Neuer: Avoided going behind with a world-class save against Raspadori (8′). After that, the last strong captain was hardly tested. But when he conceded, he let the ball bounce in front of Gnonto’s feet.

Lukas Klostermann: Did a solid job on the right, as he did against England. Joined the attack from time to time.

Niklas Sule: Lost sight of Raspadori on his big chance. But his side shifts with diagonal balls were worth seeing. This also initiated the opening goal.

Antonio Rudiger: After his break in Hungary, the defense chief returned. Through him, the German defensive regained significantly more stability.

David Room: Hardly challenged on the defensive. As a result, Hoffenheim was able to storm forward again and again on the left. Prepared Kimmich’s goal. After that, his crosses lacked precision.

Joshua Kimmich: Had control of the headquarters together with Gündogan. Scored the opening goal with great technique. Cranks up the German game again and again.

Ilkay Gundogan: Harmonized well with Kimmich. Was involved in numerous attacks. Strong nerves at the penalty.

Jonas Hofmann: At his home game in Borussia Park, it wasn’t quite as noticeable at first as it was last. Then missed his third goal in the third international match in a row. Got the penalty just before the break.

Thomas Müller: Very hardworking, travels a lot. The Munich player didn’t succeed in everything, but created a few good chances for his team-mates. Then made it 3-0.

Leroy Sane: The problem child was a little surprising in the starting eleven. Showed significantly more commitment than last. Missed two chances before the break (7th, 39th). But also with inexplicable bad passes.

Tim Werner: Got another chance from Flick. Could have scored in the first minute. You could tell at first that he lacked self-confidence. Failed by Donnarumma in the 40th minute. But then hit twice.

Serge Gnabry: He had cured his calf problems and replaced Hofmann in the 64th minute. hung up on the fourth goal for Werner.

Jamal Musiala: Replaced his Bayern team-mate Müller in the closing stages.

Luke Nmecha: Came a quarter of an hour before the end for double goalscorer Werner.

Jonathan Tah: Substituted for Süle three minutes before the end.

Anton Stach: Replaced Gündogan shortly before the final whistle and received a few more international minutes in his second appearance for the national team.
