Comment: Draxler and Weigl do not give an answer

Hansi Flick had challenged a good start to the Important World Cup year 2022 against Israel, and at least the naked statistics agreed in this test. The German national team won 2-0 goals. The two hits resulted from two standards, first Kai Hvertz steered a corner kick David room in the short corner, marriage Timo Werner Ilkay Gündogan’s free-kick in addition to the short posts in the net poked. Further promising possibilities were not recycled by Hvertz, Julian Draxler, Thilo Kehrer or Thomas Müller.

In particular, with the consequence in the offensive, the DFB selection had argean problems. Again and again the moment was missed for completion (Draxler, Hvertz), instead the situation relocated to the width. In addition, Israel’s Keeper Ofir Marciano held outstanding.

Loading Pressing – Schlotterbeck’s convenience

Another tactical deficit represented the tab of pressing, especially before the break, the Israelis were always able to playfully rather against the high-standing German elf, with short dribblings (Mohammed Abu Fani) and subsequent diagonal passes, even with combinations, even over Ten stations (71 minutes). Since the opponents were not determined and the rooms are not coordinated. Game tactical is still a lot to specify.

How Hansi Flick Turned Bayern München Into The Best Team in Europe
This game 1 in the World Cup year should also be for some players to casting overlooking the world tournament. Debutant Nico Schlotterbeck liked with some smart playing in the depth and diagonal strokes, was not tested in his core competence, defending, but not tested. When he penned in the nighttime time, he lost the ball – and there were penalty. Nevertheless, the Freiburg central defender remains a positive impression. And his convenience diagnosed by the national coach – actually to the shake of the head with such a talent with this perspective – he will have to be disconnected quickly when he wants to the World Cup.

Draxler’s final sphobie

The second debutant, Anton stabbed, was allowed to join for another half an hour. However, this scarce time can not give up any vacancies over the World Cup perspective of the Mainzer, which also represents the type of six like Julian Weigl. The former Dortmund, now active at Benfica Lisbon, was allowed to come back after five years, did his job solid – but not more. The question of whether he can stabilize the defensive in the central area with its primary defensive orientation, this good one-hour comeback could not answer. In any case, Flick seeks for this area where Joshua Kimmich, Leon Goretzka, Ilkay Gündogan or Florian Neuhaus are more likely to be ahead of such an alternative.

Julian Draxler, who in a few moments – Ballanehme, elegant movements in narrow rooms – suggested his special talent, nevertheless could not submit sustainable advertising in his own person. Again and again, his obvious final sphobie condemned him to transverse passes that fled to Alibis.

Musialas Strong half hour

This shortcomings ultimately presented the entire team, even Hvertz or Jamal Musiala, who after the break, when he released more from the depth of midfield and there from everywhere, a strong half hour presented. And Timo Werner, at FC Chelsea the worry child, achieved a goal after all.

For example, in the light of superiority and constant presence in the last third, the German team was too low. Against this limited, completely inferred opponent, who had only his two chances in the detention time, the victory would have to be much clearer. The 77th FIFA World Ranking was – especially in the offensive – an extremely harmless challenger.

On Tuesday in the game in the Netherlands, the exam will be much more difficult.
