In the UEFA Nations League match, Germany lost to Hungary 0-1 at home. It was Germany’s first defeat since Flick took charge of the German team.
German media ” sport.de ” wrote an article to comment, saying that Bayern’s crisis also affected the German national team . Bayern recently suffered a four-game losing streak in the Bundesliga. The article stated that Bayern players lacked confidence and came to the national team with a bad state, which affected other members of the national team.
The article also stated that the performance of the German team was the same as the recent Bayern Munich , there was no tacit understanding, and it did not threaten the well-organized opponent. The 4 Bayern players are Muller, Kimmich, Gnabry and Sane who started the game on behalf of the German team. However, their performance in the national team continued the slump at Bayern, such as Gnabry’s inattention in the game, many pass errors, and poor performance.
Not only Bayern’s players, but other German internationals also extended the club’s poor state to the German team. Such as Leipzig’s Werner and Raum and Dortmund defender Sule. After Sule joined Dortmund this summer, he has not returned to his best form.
In the second half of the game, Flick changed his formation and played a three-back formation. After the game, Flick said that his tactical experiment had failed. They let Hoffman play right back and then arranged for two strong central defenders. We wanted to have two attacking full-backs, but it didn’t work out.
