Under Hansi Flick, the German national team remains without a win against a major football nation. For a long time, the DFB selection had led in an intense Nations League game, but then had to accept the equalizer with a penalty shortly before the end.
An annoying penalty cost Hansi Flick his first win against a big opponent on his return to Munich. In the 1:1 (0:0) in the football classic against England, the extremely rebuilt German national team was on course for victory for a long time on Tuesday evening thanks to Jonas Hofmann’s third international goal (51st minute). Then Nico Schlotterbeck acted unhappily against Harry Kane in the penalty area. After video evidence, England’s captain safely converted from the point against the otherwise invincible Manuel Neuer (88th).
In the second Nations League game, the German team did not only seem to be able to get revenge for the loss of the European Championship a year ago against England. Despite the late equalizer, it was an important signal for the World Cup in Qatar at the end of the year. Flick, unbeaten even after the eleventh game as national coach, is progressing on the mission “back to the top of the world”. After the 1-1 draw in the Netherlands in March and the 1-1 draw in Italy, it was the third 1-1 in a row.
