League of Nations: Germany concede 1-0 penalty shootout against Harry Kane

L’Allemagne et l’Angleterre are no more advanced in this League of Nations. Opposed in the 2nd day poster, the two nations shared the points at the end of a match that should have been postponed by the Mannschaft, in view of its far superior mastery, on Tuesday night at the Allianz Arena (1-1 ). ). Three generously awarded penalties to the Three Lions allowed Harry Kane to score his 50th goal in the national team and, most importantly, to respond to the opening score of the German score.

This hold-up will not forget that Gareth Southgate’s men, caught by Hungary a few days earlier, are aiming for the last place in Group 3 of Ligue A, in which Italy is now in the lead, strong in a success against the Hungarians. Germany are two points clear in two games.

Italy returned the victory … and colors


Germany far superior

The English have again found a way to upset the Germans, who may have resented missing two points. Hansi Flick’s players now seemed to think the job was done and acted more defensively, just waiting for the ref to blow the final whistle. Their only fault? Failure to be effective in the last move.

As proof, despite their dominance, especially physical, they waited for the second period to materialize their grip on the billboard. Jonas Hofmann, Joshua Kimmich, had a great chance to put his team ahead, but his kick from the left went wide. before the break (23e).

Grealish and detonating

Germany then seemed to have hit the English hard, cooked like never before and first abandoned by coaching, too late. Except the Mannschaft didn’t get enough of it. Jordan Pickford also made two crucial saves to keep his team afloat, with a firm hand against Thomas Müller (70th) and then postponing his duel with Timo Werner, following a German counter (75th).

The English surge of pride was long overdue, but it ended up coming under the impetus of Jack Grealish, who had a great start to the game. It wasn’t long before he made a decisive pass to Harry Kane, disgusted by Manuel Neuer (76th).

It was only a handful for the English striker, who can thank the VAR for intervening on an involuntary, if not light, contact with Nico Schlotterbeck in the surface. The Tottenham star was the perfect Neuer to counter-attack on the penalty spot, passing the goal of 50 goals with England, three short lengths of the record held by Wayne Rooney.

A very well paid coup du sort for three lei, which shows great limits in this Ligue des Nations. Germany missed the mark, so Italy smiled.
