German’s Flimsy DefenseThe ease with which the Mexican forwards were able to get through the German defence seemed to be a big concern. The centre-backs Mat Hummels and Jerome Boateng looked solid at the start but the German defence was badly caught out when Mexico hit the gas. The scoreline could have been different and much better for the El Tri if they would have been more clinical in yesterday’s Germany Vs Mexico match. Also, the midfield looked rather slow in dealing with the Mexico’s counter-attacking football. Germany needs to sort out their defensive issues and find the right balance between defence and attack to live up to their high expectations.
Mexicans consistently hitting Germany on the break. Very little protection in front of their defence. Typical German lack of discipline. 😳— Gary Lineker (@GaryLineker) June 17, 2018
Leaving Sane Behind A Bad Decision?German forwards were unable to stretch the Mexicans in their defensive third and Sane’s involvement would have provided that dynamism to the Die Manschafts as he is known to be very direct in his playing style and also very quick at feet. The Manchester City winger hasn’t been much impressive in national colors but could have proved to be the key to break the Mexican defence in Germany Vs Mexico game.
You have to feel for Germany here. They seem so slow in attack. If only they'd been able to call on an exciting forward with bags of pace to really go at this Mexican defence. #GER #MEX pic.twitter.com/ncVAsaqp4G— SportsJOE (@SportsJOE_UK) June 17, 2018
El Tri Needs To Be More ClinicalConsidering the number of times the Mexicans got behind the defensive line of Germany, the score-line should have been much different for the El Tri as they deserved to win with more than one goal.
Great Going for “Chucky”Hirving ‘Chucky’ Lozano was highly praised before the tournament and he showed exactly why against Germany yesterday. The 22 year-old winger was part of almost every counter-attack of El Tri and dribbled past the German players with great effect. The PSV youngster looked very decisive when in possession and knew exactly when to go for goal during yesterday’s Germany Vs Mexico clash. Lonzano would definitely be one of the key players for Mexico this tournament.
