    Now is the time to play Brandt, Sané, Süle, Tah, Havertz and ter Stegen, but he's too loyal to his senior players and narrow-minded to find a system suiting their young talents that should be the priority for 2020 and 2022.

    It's a disgrace that Müller is still starting for them. Same with Ginter and one of Boateng and Hummels should be out too. Perhaps even both as they're constantly injured and becoming unreliable.
    Ya it looks like he expects players to retire by themselves...Otherwise, he keeps picking the same team and the same starting line up as well.

    Yeah I know Pavard is highly rated but He's a much better CB than he is RB.

    He really struggles to handle people who have pace at RB.

    Germany looked decent in the last 20 mins or so.

    France though just meh. Dembele had some decent moments when he came on but overall not great. Mbappe was pretty poor as well along with France's Midfield.

    encouraging performance. Went in with no expecatitions given our form vs France form, but we should have won this. Areola was ridiculous.

    Thanks. Is it almost solved now? I don’t think the FIFA will find it amusing if they play like that in the Nations League.

    It's a disgrace that Müller is still starting for them. Same with Ginter and one of Boateng and Hummels should be out too. Perhaps even both as they're constantly injured and becoming unreliable.
    You mean that Müller that had 5 goals and 7 assists for them in the World Cup qualifiers - and 38 goals and 36 assists in all matches for Germany - and no, not in friendlies when it is not against the bigger nations... He was the best offensive in the last 2 years and in the last 4 years for Germany. Who is one of the best assistants in Europe and who after Ancelotti left Bayern scored a goal or an assist every 75 minutes - 60% of which were decisive ones? He actually started the season with 2 man of the match performances with a goal and an assist each as a right 8 in Bayern's system. He is still 28.

    We substitute him against Brandt who until now did not shine in any of his matches for Germany (and he got some chances) bar some late cameos when the opponent had already dead legs? Who has as many goals in his first 1000 international minutes with his club as Müller had in his first 18 minutes? Whose data stagnates since years - yes, he is just 22 - but he is already in his 6th Bundesliga season.

    Or against Sane who might have had success in a limited role on the left wing with City last season - a role that until now is not there in the German team and who played miserably whenever he played for Germany. Right now he even did not make the City team last week and he did not look any good in the 30 minutes he played in the EPL this season.

    It is the national team - not the U21. It is no talent develop center to find out who in 2 or 3 years might have developed into something and who does not. The best have to play - the best of now!

    Things went wrong at the World Cup. Yes. Instead of going into it with a balanced team we went in with 3 offensive minded midfielders and 2 full backs. With a counter attacking striker in a team that has the ball most of the time and against which the other teams park the double decker bus. What follows is that we cannot get any stability in it, players get nervous and make easy mistakes and Germany gets caught out on the counters, and in front we do not take risks and throw crosses into the box where nobody is or Kroos shots from far away...

    Yes, there is people that blame single players who then did not function... newspapers are especially well in that.

    For one reason or another, I'm one of those who has always liked Italian NT. Can't believe Balloteli is Mancini's first choice in front of Chiro and Belotti, also, it's time to move on from Chiellini-Bonucci partnership. Romagnoli-Caldara? Something else? Anyways, they're a goal down against Poland. Could've (should've) been more.

    On the other hand, quite a few new faces in this Poland side.

    Good goal by Bale, yesterday(or whatever), cant be bothered to follow these glorified friendlies though.
