After a good quarter of an hour, the Flick team keeps the focus of the action in the opposing half and finds many ways between the lines. Almost everything goes through his left flank in this phase.
Musiala serves Werner with a flat through ball to the left side of the penalty area. The ex-Leipziger fails from a good 13 meters with a left-footed shot at his former club colleague Gulácsi. But he was offside anyway.
Tooor for Germany, 1:1 by Jonas Hofmann
The Germans strike back quickly! In the attacking centre, Hofmann is the addressee of a long diagonal strike from Schlotterbeck from midfield. Behind Szalais, he tips the ball past the rushing keeper Gulácsi on the left and slides it into the empty box from a good nine meters.
So the underdog uses his first opportunity to gain an advantage. For the fourth time in a row, Germany will concede at least one goal.
Tooor for Hungary, 1-0 through Zsolt Nagy
Nagy gives the home side an early lead! After Sallai failed to head Neuer as a result of a cross from Fiola from the deep right wing from the left pentagon, the rebound landed in front of the 29-year-old’s feet. Nagy fires the ball from six yards to the left, unstoppable, under the crossbar.
Hofmann succeeds in breaking through the opposing midfield line in the half-right offensive corridor. The Mönchengladbacher wants to send the starting Werner with a through ball into the sixteen, but the Londoner cannot reach it and rolls into the goal
The DFB selection in Hungary – round one in the Puskás-Aréna is open!
There is a minute’s silence for the recently deceased former Hungarian international József Duró.
It’s time for the national anthems.
The teams have just entered the pitch in front of more than 60,000 spectators.
In the DFB selection, which has so far only won two out of twelve matches in the UEFA Nations League and which, in the event of an English victory in the parallel match against Italy, would take over group place with a three-man squad, Hansi Flick makes the point after the 1-1 home draw against England four times. Kehrer, Süle, Goretzka and Werner take the places of Rüdiger (not in the squad), Klostermann, Gündoğan and Müller (all on the bench).
For the Magyars, who sold extremely dearly at last summer’s European Championship and the Germans were on the brink of elimination in the last group game, coach Marco Rossi has made three personnel changes since the 2-1 defeat in Italy. Instead of Dibusz, Négo (both on the bench) and Schäfer (suspended), Gúlacsi, Fiola and Styles start.
Hungary’s selection, which missed out on their first World Cup appearance since 1986 by finishing fourth in EURO qualifying group I behind England, Poland and Albania, has proved quite competitive in UEFA Nations League Season A3: before being held in Cesena on Losing 2-1 to Team Italy on Tuesday, they defeated the English national team 1-0 in Budapest on Saturday; Leipzig’s Szoboszlai converted a penalty in the 66th minute.
With regard to the World Cup in Qatar (November 21 to December 18), where the German national team will meet Japan, Spain and the winner of the playoff duel between Costa Rica and New Zealand in the group stage, the performance and the each other remain The resulting ambitions of the four-time title holder are still unclear: in the first major tournament without head coach Joachim Löw since 2006, can the DFB selection be among the extended group of favorites or is it “only” about getting into the knockout phase?
In this unusually long window of international matches following the club football season, the German national team is challenged twice. After a 1-1 draw at the start of the third UEFA Nations League season in Bologna last Saturday at an inexperienced Italian side from behind, she presented herself in a home game against a strong England team in Munich on Tuesday better form and just barely missed a win: After Hofmann’s opening goal (51st), the Flick team only conceded the goal in the 88th minute with a penalty.
Good evening from Budapest! On the third day of the UEFA Nations League, the German national team is a guest of Hungary and is aiming for its first win. Kick-off in the Puskás-Aréna is scheduled for 8:45 p.m.
