Leading the Germans 1-0 at half-time. They've been rubbish albeit not helped by Löw's horrible line-up. I wasn't sure if they were playing 4231 or 343. Prior to the goal, Kroos was playing CB next to Süle and Hummels! What's that about? Why start Gündogan on the right. He's been all over the place and Germany have no structure (and haven't had for a while!).
Would love to see Germany play in the 2nd half.
Finished 2-2. Bit of a meh result given that the Germans equalised in the last minute of stoppage time.
Kroos finally woke up in the second half and it showed as Germany equalised (a one-on-one that Mandanda really should have won against Werner) and then Kroos hit the bar. Against the run of play, Lacazette makes it 2-1 and takes the wind out of the Germans' wings. Martial has the chance to make it 3-1 but he fails miserably (Trapp had a great game in fairness). Oh well.
Still reckon Germany could play so much better but just don't.
We will, we will, mm. We do that when it counts at WC 2018 .
Anyway, thank god those friendlies are over for 2017. Germany still unbeaten in the last 21 matches (since the loss in the semi-final at the Euro 2016)
edit: England vs Brazil 0-0? Respectable. How was the match (serious question because I haven't seen anything of it)
And Argentina lost 2-4 against Nigeria in some russian city? WTF are they doing there? Just qualified for Russia 2018 and they are already there? Way too soon
We watched the Ireland vs Denmark match. So sorry to see Ireland fail to make it. I had a feeling the England vs Brazil match would be a dud, but am pleased that Joe Gomez ("one of our own" at Charlton before we sold him to Liverpool) is doing well. I wish him well.
Ireland were let down by two moments of sloppiness which gave the Danes their goals. It just goes to show how lapses, no matter how small, can cost a team dear.
Don't think you lads ought to bother with all that England nonsense tonight, you can get all morose about them when the world cup starts in a few months.
Why not watch Scotland tonight play the mighty Costa Rica where we'll blood our new lions in that will finally qualify us once again for a major tournament next time and take the Euros by storm! Mon the lads!!!
Those lads don't know what they're letting themselves in for - some of these dutch are loony & also massive. Navigating those horseshoe maze of streets they'll be fucked - be getting picked off left right and centre all night long - idiots.
