In the first international match of the year and the first friendly match at all under the direction of Hansi Flick, Nico Schlotterbeck came in the domestic defense to his country debut. Weigl played on the sixposition next to Captain Gündogan, Ter Stegen began between the posts. In the starting element of the Israeli coach, the Hoffenheim Striker Dabbur.
Germany played dominant from the beginning, but until the first grand chance, it took a scared half hour when Hvertz fails at the strong Israeli keeper Marciano (29.). Previously, the DFB selection was checked – a lot went over the very active left side of space, which was repeatedly staged by debutant Schlotterbeck – but the last ball often fell too inaccurate.
HAVERTZ worried the lead – Werner lays
According to HAVERTZ ‘opening opportunity, Germany increased the bound number: Gündogan awarded from the penalty area (32.), Hanctz single past Marciano (36th). But the following corner then brought the lead: room brought the edge to the first post, where Hanctz crumpled and hit by head (36.).
Israel just wicked a little further forward. But then it went back to the old pattern – and Germany increased shortly before the pause whistle: Werner steered a free-kick of Gündogan into the gate to 2: 0 (45. + 1).
Müller and Cohen awarded from the point
After the side change, the DFB selection started printed. The substitute Müller introduced himself directly as a loud asset post. The supposed 3-0, however, achieved Werner, who was previously in the away (50th). Sweeper awarded the next chance (60th), this time Marciano held again strong.
Numerous changes in the consequence of some air from the game, but two highlights had the final phase still parat. First, Müller awarded from the point: he missed a penalty that Nmecha had taken out (89.). Five minutes later, on the other side of Israel’s Cohen also failed from eleven meters (90. + 4). Schlotterbeck had previously brought the shooter after a carelessness.
Two missed penalty changed nothing more on the final result. Flick also wins its eighth game as a national coach and wants to expand this series on Tuesday (20.45 clock) against the Netherlands, which in turn defeated Denmark with 4: 2.
