Germany Hosted Argentina at Signal Iduna Park, and we saw an excellent much with enough Drama and emotions
Scaloni was happy and confident before the match
Scaloni met with journalists before the game and talked about his team. Argentinian coach cheered up his boys and said that they could win a Wednesday match. Keep in mind that Argentina is in good playing as they have not lost match after Copa America. The last match Scaloni’s team lost was against Brazil during the Copa America in June.
After Copa America, Argentina won two matches out of three. One game ended in a goalless draw against Chile. We have to mention the absence of Lionel Messi. Argentinian midfielder was not playing against Germany as he will be also absent from next friendly matches.
Low has to make things work
German fans are not happy with Low anymore. Germany lost a match against the Netherlands 2-4 at home and made it hard to qualify for Euro 2020. Yes, Germany still has a chance to qualify, but it will be a hard and tough task for German players.
Low promised to journalists that he will give a chance to the youngsters. German coach kept his promise and started the game against Argentina with young players.
We have to note absence of Neuer. Manuel has not played against Argentina as Low decided to test Ter Stegen. Bayern’s president said that if Low chooses to drop Manuel Neuer, then he won’t give a chance to other German players from Bayern to go on national duties. Karl-Heinz Rummenigge’s statement was scandalous as German Football Federation representative said that Rummenigge is not someone who decides starting lineup.
1st half of the match
First half was very interesting and we saw many goal scoring chances from Germany. German players performed well in the first half and scored two goals. After demolishing Tottenham in London, Gnabry opened a score-sheet yesterday. After 5 minutes, Gnabry gave an assist to Haverz. Argentina could not do anything in the first half, so Germany won 2-0;
2nd half of the match
Both teams had many substitutions during the break. Argentina started with many new faces, and it was an exciting challenge. Scaloni gave a chance to Alario and he scored a goal in 4 minutes.
That was an inspiration for other Argentinian players, and they started attacking sharply. Argentina played better than Germany in the second half, and they deserved the second goal. Alario scored a goal, but he also gave an assist to Ocampos on 85th minute.
