Brazil Germany, Six Sports

Florian Muller pulled off a decent display for the Germans. Despite conceding 4 goals, he made a crucial penalty save and several other chances. It easily could’ve been 4 or 5 goals more.

Maximillian Arnold put in a horrible shift in the midfield, he was lazy with his passing and weak defensively.

Meanwhile, Nadiem Amiri was very sharp. He scored a decent goal from outside the box.  Ragnar Ache scored second for Germany.

Germany were constantly caught on the counterattack. Amos Pieper and Benjamin Henrichs were continually exposed by Brazil’s tricky wingers.

Matheus Cunha saw a penalty saved. However, Paulinho finally wrapped up the win with a sumptuous stoppage-time curler.

To sum up it was a brilliant attacking display from Brazil. The defensive set-up for Germany didn’t look very promising and was badly balanced right from kick-off.

In short, there’s very little margin for error if Germany wants to make it to the knockout stage. With a must-win game against Saudi Arabia next, Germany can make it to the knockout stage.
