Germany suffered a 2-3 reverse against Turkiye in a friendly at the Olympiastadion in Berlin on September 19. Germany have been extremely poor in their last 10 A matches, winning two, drawing two and losing six. That includes a shock 1-4 loss to Japan. That’s a neighborhood drum.토토사이트
It’s not like they’re missing key players. Kai Harberts, Leroy Sane, Ilkay Gundogan, Joshua Kimmich, Rudiger, and Julian Brandt were all in the lineup. Haberts opened the scoring in the fifth minute of the first half and it looked like Germany would have an easy time of it.
However, Germany conceded a 38th-minute equalizer to Cardioglu, and then an equalizer to Idiz in first-half stoppage time. Germany fought back with a goal from Fulkruk four minutes into the second half. However, they conceded a penalty in the 26th minute to lose the game.
It’s not just a friendly defeat. Germany fired national team coach Jupp Heynckes after the 1-4 loss to Japan in September. The choice was Julian Nagelsmann, 36, a “young coach” from Munich, who led the team to a 3-1 win over the United States on his debut on October 15. Germany drew 2-2 with Mexico on October 18 to remain unbeaten.
However, the hopeful Nagelsmann suffered his first defeat against Turkiye. Germany continues its friendly campaign against Austria on Oct. 22.
Germany will host Euro2024 Germany next year. Germany is tied with Spain for the most wins with three. However, the last time Germany won the tournament was in 1996.

Germany will be looking to become the most decorated European champions at home. The national pride is at stake. But at the rate they’re playing, they’re not going to be able to avoid another embarrassment. Only Nagelsmann is under immense pressure.
