Scene of the game: Alexander Nyubel is probably the most talented player of the German national team to 21 years old. Goalkeeper Schalke held in Germany semi-final against Romania with a sensational parade in the game. Well, in the final against Spain, a 22-year-old player made a bad mistake that sealed the defeat. Nübel could not catch a harmless shot from Fabián. Olmo's score dropped from 2: 0. This scene reminded Oliver Cana of the goalkeeper in the 2002 World Cup finals against Brazil when Ronaldo met. Only one size smaller.
After the final whistle, Nubel shouted. But U21 coach Stefan Kunz gave him courage: "If he makes a card like Oli Kan, then everything is fine."
Result: Germany lost 1: 2 (0: 1) against Spain. Click here to report a game.
Realization of the game: This is a bitter day off for German football: after Saturday, the Swedes were reciprocated against the Germany in the 2016 Olympic Games defeat, it happened on Sunday, the Spaniards for a final defeat at the U21 European Championship. The final of the European Championship, because the coach's team of Kunz was too timid almost half his time, did not use his chances enough – and had a tragic hero with the Nubel.
Recognition of the tournament: Despite the ultimate defeat, German football was not in an abandoned condition, as many observers feared for years after the previous round of A-Eleven at the 2018 World Cup. 15 goals in the matches, as well as the second final part in the series to which we can be proud of. Kuntz-Elf surpassed expectations of this tournament.
Replenishment for Leo? The new "gold generation", as in 2009, when the team around Mesut Esil and Manuel became the European Champion in Europe until the age of 21 and the world champion in Brazil for the past year, did not play in Italy. The new, anticipated year of 1996 is already part of the A-Elf and is headed by Leroy Sané, Timo Werner and Julian Brandt. They could also play in this tournament. Of the 2019 vice-European champion, he will probably not see many players at Löw: in addition to Lucas Klostermann and Jonathan Tah, who are already allowed to play under the coach Joachim Lev, Maximilian Egestein and Nubel are probably the best prospects.
First half: "#Herzzeigen" is the motto of the German selection U21. But in the beginning of the game nothing was visible from the hearts of the German players. They slipped in their pants. This thrill of Fabián was used before the start of the 1-0 for Spain: he took his shot straight down the middle line and allowed him to go to the German penalty zone. His low kick from 22 meters flew past Nubel to the goal (7 minutes). The qualifying selection of DSEs was against a not-too-dangerous shot for half. Thomas Brook, a commentator at ARD, spoke of the lack of courage. Captain U21 And I did not think so after the game: "Who said that?" Ta asked. When he heard that he was a former player of the Bundesliga Breich, he said: "Not my opinion!"
Dark Yellow: In Germany, too, he was not lucky enough to resolve the referee: Luke Waldshmidt, the striker of the seven goals in this tournament, was once severely violated by Josu Vallejo, for which the Spaniard could have been completely out of the field. I was just yellow.
Pink panther with a whistle: In the distance from the game, during the first half of the match, referee judges made a card on Twitter. Bright pink, decided by Serbian referee Srdjan Jovanovich, provoked more or less good jokes on the Internet.
The other half: By the end of the first half, the Kunts team had been bitten in the game. At the beginning of the second, she took control. Nadim Amiri and Waldshmidt had good opportunities (48th and 53rd). The Spaniards bet on the counter – and one of them led to 2: 0. Fabian shot, Nubel's mistake, Olmos Tor (69.). Carlos Söller even got into the bar (81 & # 39;). And Waldschmidt awarded the best German opportunity with ninety meters (83rd). His eighth goal in the tournament, which he became the only record holder in the history of the European Championship until 21, was denied. That is why Amiri met. His shot was rejected by Vallejo (88.). But the connection came too late.
Records set: After 1986, 1998, 2011, and 2013, Spain celebrates the U21 European Championship title and holds with the record holder in Italy. For Germany, it stays on two European Championship titles (2009 and 2017).
Tournament Player: Fabian, SSC Napoli midfielder, was named the tournament player after the final. Good choice.
Trouble at the end: Commenting on the ARD Steffen Simon is suspected in any case, it is not always at the height of the moon. But this time he completely forgot what his role is. When it was still 0: 1, Simon spoke with Como-commentator Brookh about German opportunities, and then called: "We have not lost yet." But we should never give it to journalists for all sports patriotism. Or, as formerly said, the great honey Joachim Friedrich: "Keep away, do not do a common cause with one thing, not even good!"
