Germany’s Next Opponent, France, With 5 Consecutive Wins… Director Flick’s Fate
After being eliminated from the World Cup group stage, 1 win, 1 draw and 4 losses… 3 consecutive losses in recent A match
The German national soccer team, the ‘tank corps’, is no longer a powerhouse in Europe if you look at its recent performance.
Germany, which held on to third place last year with 1 win, 4 draws, and 1 loss in 6 games in Group 3 of League A of the UEFA Nations League (UNL), fell completely into a quagmire during the FIFA World Cup in Qatar.
In the group stage, they recorded 1 win, 1 draw, and 1 loss, and were eliminated in 3rd place in the group behind Japan and Spain.
Since the 2018 Russia World Cup, they have failed to advance to the round of 16 for two consecutive tournaments. 카지노사이트킹
The fact that ‘after elimination’ is even more miserable makes German soccer fans cry.
There was hope when they won 2-0 against Peru in the first international match (match between national teams) since the World Cup last March.
However, after that, they fell to 1 draw and 4 losses.
Germany, which lost 2-3 to Belgium in March, had a difficult draw with Ukraine (3-3 draw) in June.
Even in this case, Yojua Kimmich (Bayern Munich) scored a penalty kick in extra time in the second half to avoid defeat.
Afterwards, they lost to Poland (0-1 loss) and Colombia (0-1 loss).
Germany, desperate for a turnaround, invited Japan home on the 10th Korean time, but bowed out with a score of 1-4.
This is an even more painful result because they dreamed of revenge for their loss at the World Cup in Qatar.
Germany’s next opponent, which has lost three times in a row, is France, which once competed for European supremacy.
The two teams will clash at 4 a.m. on the 13th, Korean time.
France has been on a roll since the World Cup in Qatar, where they narrowly missed out on winning the title.
France defeated the Netherlands 4-0 in the first game immediately after the World Cup, and then won all four games in March and June.
The German soccer world was shocked by the crushing loss to Japan ahead of the fierce match against France.
Captain Ilkay Kwon Do-an (Barcelona) immediately blamed himself on RTL Broadcasting, saying, “The Japanese players were clearly superior to us in offense and defense.
There were too many mistakes that should not have been made in a game of this level.
“Rudi Völler, general manager of the German national team, said, “Everyone was a little shocked,” and “the 1-4 loss was embarrassing.”
In addition, General Manager Völler failed to respond with a firm expression of support to reporters’ questions about coach Hansi Flick’s future.
German Football Association
The German Football Association has shown trust in coach Flick to lead the national team until the 2024 European Football Championship (Euro 2024), which will be hosted by the country, despite being eliminated in the World Cup group stage.
When asked whether Coach Flick is the right person in the process of preparing for Euro 2024, General Manager Völler said, “We need to go back and calm down a bit before training tomorrow.
We have a game left against a difficult opponent called France. “
He simply replied , “Each of us needs to reflect a little bit and think about the next game.
Let’s go and see what happens next.”
Lothar Matthaus, a German football legend who has played in 150 international matches and a football critic, poured sharp criticism not only on coach Flick but also on the Football Association and the entire team.
According to local media Bild, Matheus said, “I know what has been going on in the German Football Association for several months.
There are not many people who support Coach Flick. There is Director Völler, but is that still the case? I am not sure.”
He continued, “Coach Flick, who was very respected during his time at Bayern Munich (Germany), has lost some trust,” and “I no longer believe what the players say.
They only say that they have to repay coach Flick, but what has the players shown over the past few months? “Is there one?” he pinched.
Reuters reported that coach Flick, who was on the defensive, insisted, “I am the right person for this position” when asked about his future at a press conference immediately after the Japan game.
Coach Flick said, “Soccer is so dynamic that you can’t predict what will happen,” adding, “I will prepare for the game against France.
I will encourage the team.”
Coach Flick signed a three-year contract with the German Football Association in August 2021.
Coach Flick, who took office as head coach of German professional soccer team Bayern Munich in 2019, is a leader who has achieved achievements such as winning the Bundesliga in the 2019-2020 and 2020-2021 seasons, winning the UEFA Champions League in the 2019-2020 season, and winning the 2020 FIFA Club World Cup.
