The German national side has faced a lot of criticism over the last two years, especially since showing a terrible show at the 2018 World Cup.
Many players were first expelled from the team, including Thomas Muller, Mats Hummels, and Jerome Boateng. Both of the former pairs have returned to Joachim Lo’s team, but much is still being said about the German performance.
The opening of this year’s tournament was a difficult 1-0 defeat against France, but a very impressive 4-2 victory over Portugal has returned many fans.
One thing that seems unquestionable is that the manager has the support of the player. Too many are willing to talk about the public criticism of their coaches.
Bayern Munich midfielder Leon Goretzka spoke with the press and satirically talked about the frequency of public criticism of coaching.
“It’s great to have 82 million people who think they’re German coaches, not 82 million virologists.” He said.

Goretzka is now back in fitness and has the potential to play a major role in the rest of the tournament.
Goretzka may be represented with Toni Kroos, as Ilkay Gundoan did not train prior to the match against Hungary.
DFB has confirmed that Mats Hummels, Thomas Müller, Ilkay Gundoan and Lukas Klosterman are not attending today’s training session.

Gosens emphasizes fundamental victory
One of the biggest criticisms of Low was the decision to play with the 3-4-2-1 system.
The wingbacks of Joshua Kimmich and Robin Gosens seemed vulnerable to France, but blew away the Portuguese side, who couldn’t cope with the overload with one-third of their defense.
Gosens scored and even excluded previous strikes due to offside. He talked about the importance of victory.
“This victory was fundamentally important to the rest of the tournament.” Said Gosens.
“No words. It will remain in my heart forever, it is one of the nights I will never forget in my life.”
If Germany beats Hungary, they could have a successful surprise group topping moment, and if France wins, Portugal itself could be knocked out.
