Germany 1-1 England: first reactions and observations

First reactions and observations

  • Great game for Germany ruined by terrible refereeing. The Germans had England’s best game and should have scored more to be fair. A draw is really hard for the team.
  • Substitutes for Hansi Flick destabilized the midfield and got England back into the game.
  • In terms of real positives – David Raum and Jonas Hofmann are clear starting quality players. Raum in particular resembles Flick’s new Phonzie. He was terrorizing England’s right flank today.
  • The referee tackling Gundogan on the edge of the England penalty area speaks volumes about his performance tonight.
  • Joshua Kimmich barely made a mistake tonight, and his assist for Hofmann’s goal was sublime. It’s good to see his form returning.

Full time: Germany draw 1-1.


87′ — Goal. Kane scores from the spot. How did the ref even give that away? There was no way Schlotterbeck had made contact.


75′ — Substitutes: Leon Goretzka in place of Thomas Muller.


65′ — Substitutes: Werner and Gnabry for Musiala and Hofmann.


51′ — GOAL! 51 Jonas Hofmann shoots past the keeper thanks to a nice through pass from Joshua Kimmich.


45′ — The second half is on!


Half-time observations and analysis

  • David Raum and Jonas Hofmann brought this German team to life. Raum in particular has caused England a lot of problems down the left, and if a goal does come, it’s likely to be from him.
  • Jamal Musiala has had a fine outing so far, he could have scored a goal or two if it weren’t for some bad luck and good guarding from Pickford.
  • Germany have a great plan to force England to switch to their keeper and then have him sent off long. It’s responsible for most of their turnovers in this game. Flick’s offense has an amazing ability to tighten a net around Pickford when he has the ball. .
  • Schlotterbeck wasn’t as impressive as Sule in the last game. Maybe that shows there’s still a hierarchy in the German setup.
  • Germany’s attack can probably afford to be a bit more adventurous.

Half time: Germany still scoreless at half-time.


twenty two’ – Hofmann scores, but is ruled offside.


14′ — Sub: For England, Jude Bellingham replaces the injured Calvin Phillips.


To start up: The teams are on their way to the Allianz Arena!


One hour before kick-off: We have queues! Looks like Hansi Flick opted to start Thomas Muller and Kai Havertz together as the fans wanted, in addition to putting Jamal Musiala in the starting XI. Nico Schlotterbeck replaces Niklas Sule, while Jonas Hofmann and David Raum start as potential wingers Could it be a back-three formation?


Miss Bayern Munich? Well, that’s the closest you’ll get this summer, as Germany take on England at the Allianz Arena. If you think it’s the second leg of the Euros, then there’s plenty of incentive for the Germans to come out there and give it their all.

Hansi Flick probably has a good idea of ​​what works and what doesn’t after his game against Italy, so the Germans can expect changes in the line-up. Jonas Hofmann could be the major game-changing addition as the Gladbach midfielder has added. the spark that the Germans lacked in the first half of the game against Italy. Other than that, expect Bayern Munich’s usual contingent – Thomas Muller, Manuel Neuer, Joshua Kimmich, etc. Timo Werner in the lead (or maybe both).

Is Flick learning its lessons? Let’s find out.
