Italian legionary Robin Gosens shows a good performance against Spain in his first international match – and speaks against the Iberians immediately after the bitter end of the game.
Long led – and ultimately not won: the German national team’s 1-1 draw at the start of the Nations League against Spain was also the first international match for defender Robin Gosens – with a bitter end with the equalizer in the sixth minute of injury time.
The 26-year-old showed an appealing performance on his debut and even prepared the 1-0 for Timo Werner. “A rollercoaster of emotions”, Gosens described the game from his point of view after the game at ZDF – and then it became clear: “I am really angry that we get such an egg-free goal in the last second!”
Because the DFB-Elf looked like the sure winner for a long time before José Gaya scored the 1-1. The situation was curious: Gosens was in the goal scorer, but referee Daniele Orsato judged the Atalanta Bergamo player as the last man. “I have learned something again. I thought that if I was behind the line, I was no longer in the game”, Gosens said afterwards. Clear words from the debutants – Sunday against Switzerland, the DFB-Elf and Gosens can do even better.
