Hansi Flick speaks on Germany

Germany head coach Hansi Flick was pleased with his team after they salvaged a late World Cup draw against Spain.

Die Mannschaft got off to a disastrous start in Group E, losing 2-1 to Japan on matchday one and left themselves very susceptible to early elimination.

Meanwhile, Spain began with a 7-0 demolition of Costa Rica. Hansi Flick, However, Germany held them well when the two previous world champions clashed on Sunday in a tightly played match.

La Roja took the lead via Alvaro Morata, but Germany salvaged a point late due to substituting Niclas Fullkrug’s stunning strike. Flick lauded his players but remained realistic after the game, saying, “The team fought unconditionally.” However, we just took one step.

“We work as a group. “We have a good cohesion, even if it may be viewed differently,” he said, “and what the squad has accomplished is enormous.” “I am pleased.”

“Fighters on the field are playing with their hearts.” If we can keep this momentum going – and gain even more self-confidence – then everything is possible.”

After falling behind, Germany faced yet another group stage departure, much like the disappointment of 2018, when they exited early as defending champions.

While a point is certainly less desirable than three, particularly given their opportunities to win the game, it puts them in an excellent position to go to the round of 16. They play Costa Rica in matchday three and must win to keep their dreams alive, but they also need Spain to defeat Japan to advance.
