  1. Mergim Berisha for RB Salzburg could be a good center forward target. . Huge , aggressive , serious right peg on free kicks (watch 🇩🇪 euro U21 highlights) . . Has the temperament to play well internationally

  2. Leroy Sane is trash!! His last 2 seasons have been absolutely awful. He was a product of the Pep Guardiola system because at Bayern n for Germany over the last 2 seasons he’s been extremely inconsistent and awful at times as well!!

  3. There are plenty of talents in germany
    Neur
    Baku rudiger uduokhai(Sule) klostermann
    Kimmich goretzka (neauhus)
    Havertz (musiala)
    Sane. Nmecha(Reus). Gnabry(Werner)

    This line up will win us everything
    Still thrre should be more scouting for defense.

  4. Germany needs to improve its defence and put better players in midfield and they also need to focus on finishing from strikers. They need to move past Neuer too. There are so many talented German goalkeepers.

  5. Does anybody at ESPN Fc remember that Süle had one of the fastest recorded sprints in the Bundesliga a couple seasons ago? He was keeping Boateng and Hummels out of the lineup when he first came to Bayern. Süle can be one of the most imposing defenders but these guys act like he's a turtle out there.

  6. Müller is an excellent, top top player. You have been seeing this pattern since 2009/2010 at Bayern, where he was the main force in the attacking third. It is highly unusual to find a player like him who is guaranteed to give you clear cut chances or get himself into good scoring positions every game. Even when he doesn't have a good game, he works so much defensively and presses hard. I wonder if these commentators actually watched the games or are making up stuff about him being over 30 and so unable to press effectively. The thing about Müller is that the coach has to find a system suiting him, he's a bit like Messi in that department; you have to build the team around him in order for him to flourish. About Hummels, he is one of the best centre backs of all time for Germany. His positioning and tackling technique is exceptional, his aerial and ground passing superb and he's always a threat at set pieces. His only flaw is his lack of speed so again, the coach has to apply a system meriting him.
    The problem with Germany (apart from the mentality) is the formation. The 3 man defence is deceiving: It supposedly offers you more stability but the part of the field you are more vulnerable are the flanks not the centre. If Jogi used a 4-1-4-1 or even a 4-1-5 with 5 fluid attacking midfielders, where the side backs do not go forward (much like he did in 2014 final) he would be at least defensively sound. Even when he has to be more aggressive in attack, he could use an asymetric 4-2-3-1, where the one side back comes forward and the other stands his ground. Goretzka then covers the attacking side back and Kimmich sits in front of the defence. This is the rational approach when you don't have world class side backs and I really don't know how Jogi didn't see that coming.

  7. No 1- Germany will be seen in a consistent formation from now (4-2-3-1)unless it is determined otherwise by situations
    No-2 Finally Kimmich and Goretzka in central midfield meaning Kroos may retire but let's hope for the best he does not
    No 3- Havertz will be permanent no 9
    No 4- Jamal may start now regularly if that happens no place for Kroos
    No 5- If Germany beat England at 2022 WC if they meet, then we'll wreck them so hard. I don't mind them beating Germany but when they disrespected the anthem and booed that little girl that was it

  8. The team moves forward with Kimmich, Havertz and Goretzka as the stars of the team, plus the U21 Euro winners brought on (Baku, Raum, Dorsch, Schlotterbeck, Nmecha, Burkardt eventually – and Adeyemi eventually and Wirtz even though he’s very young still), as well as a lot of the younger players

  9. I like both Gab and Julien but they are both wrong on several accounts. Ma-ts Hummels has been one of our best players this tournement. Definitly the best full back and Flick left after the 2014 world cup win. He most certainly was not part of the team during Löw's downward spiral. The part afterwards was insightful but the beginning of the video was rough.
