The German national team took a lead against the guests three times and had to settle for a draw. National coach Joachim Löw then finds clear words.
Three times led, three times the equalizer – for the DFB-Eleven on Wednesday evening in Cologne, a bitter land slogan developed against Turkey. The goals of Julian Draxler (45th), debutant Florian Neuhaus (58th) and Luca Waldschmidt (81st) were not enough, the guests went against each other and were able to go through Ozan Tufan (50th), Efecan Karaca (67th) and Kenan Karaman (90th + 4) still equalizes.
National coach Joachim Löw found clear words after the game: “Now you are disappointed and pissed off”, said the 60-year-old at RTL. And further: “This is a problem that accompanies us.” On dfb.de, Löw explained in more detail what he did not like about his team’s performance, for example taking advantage of opportunities: if you make it 3-1, the opponent won’t come back. You have to handle the ball seriously under pressure – always the simple loss of the ball in simple situations. You have to accept the ball and claim it. “And further:” If some things are not right, the goals awarded will be scored. The goal should not happen at this stage. “
Discussions with the team now follow – the Nations League continues on Saturday in Ukraine, the next game against Switzerland will follow on Tuesday, before the stars of Bayern and other regulars join the team. “We’ll work it out when all the players are there. We need to talk.”
