News : Hoeneß wedges after embarrassing bankruptcy against Löw: “I don’t understand at all”
Joachim Löw disappeared into the players tunnel as quickly as possible, substitute captain Ilkay Gündogan drew a relentless conclusion. “I can’t think of many words right now. Such a defeat shouldn’t happen,” said Gündogan on RTL.
“I don’t understand at all that you change an existing system”
Shortly afterwards, expert Hoeneß also found clear words: “It was OK in the first twenty minutes, but when you don’t score anything – then you can’t concede a goal. In defense, we were very open in the middle. I don’t understand at all that you change an existing system. That didn’t work out. The German game is very exhausting – and the team came back late from Romania. They were very, very tired. Always one step too late. And North Macedonia played very committed. ” Ultimately, however, Hoeneß also ran out of the possible reasons for the embarrassing bankruptcy: “I’m pretty speechless.”
Löw plan does not work
What Hoeneß meant: After Germany played on the defensive in the last two games with a back four, the DFB-Elf seemed to play against North Macedonia with a back three because Klostermann representative Gosens was very offensive. But the plan didn’t work out at all.
