On the last day of National Day Golden Week, did you get up in the wee hours to watch the friendly match between the German team and Turkey? I believe that most readers will give a negative answer. The biggest reason is that the game itself is really unattractive. It is enough to wake up during the day and watch the video, or even watch the highlights for a few minutes.
Not to mention the Chinese fans who have to overcome the difficult conditions of staying up late, even the local German fans are completely uninterested in this game. The ratings data show that, on average, less than 6 million viewers in Germany watched the live broadcast of this game, setting the lowest record since Loew coached the German team in over 14 years and 184 games. And in the last 11 games of the German team, none of the TV viewers exceeded 10 million.
Accompanied by the disappointment of the local German fans, it is an uninteresting achievement for the German team. After having no games for more than half a year, the German team has tied for 3 consecutive games. Whether it’s an opponent of comparable grades like Spain, or juniors like Switzerland and Turkey, whether it’s the UEFA Europa League in official matches, or a friendly game with clear training intentions, whether it’s a 1-0, 2-1 or 3-2 lead, the result is It's all tied. For Spain, it was tied in the 96th minute, this time it was the 94th minute for Turkey to release the cooked duck. For the better, the German team has been unbeaten for 8 consecutive games; for the worst, it is hard to find a victory for Loew's team this year.
The second team practice game, of course nobody watched
In fact, German fans’ enthusiasm for the national team continues to decline. This is not a phenomenon that only happened this year. It’s just that the epidemic has led to a poor atmosphere (only 300 fans are allowed to enter the stadium) and objective factors such as the intensive schedule in the second half of this year. The situation has worsened. In order to cope with the 7-day 3 match, Loew, who is responsible for the national team and his disciples and the mood of the clubs, had to recruit as many as 29 players in one breath (Schalke 04 midfielder Serdal finally Failed to report due to injury).
And in this XL list, there are several players who have been the club's substitutes recently or even for a long time. For example, Dortmund midfielder Dahoud was selected for the first time, and his club teammates Brandt and Nico Schul Ci is not much better. In his personal column, Matteus complained: "I was surprised to see many players like Nico Schultz sitting on the bench at the club playing for the German team. This is why no one watches the German team. TV broadcast."
在这份XL名单中，最近甚至很长时间以来，都有几位球员成为俱乐部的替补球员。例如，多特蒙德中场球员达胡德（Dahoud）首次入选，他的俱乐部队友布兰特（Brandt）和尼科·舒尔·西（Nico Schul Ci）并不好。马修斯在个人专栏中抱怨：“我很惊讶地看到像尼科·舒尔茨这样的许多球员坐在俱乐部的替补席上为德国队效力。这就是为什么没人看德国队的原因。电视转播。”
In order to stay in the next UEFA Europa League away game against Ukraine and home game against Switzerland, Loew used the friendly match with Turkey to train substitutes and marginal players, letting Neuer, Kroos, Kimmich, Gnabry, Zule, Werner and the rest are absolutely the main force. This is the decision announced by Loew early in the morning, so it is no wonder that the audience will not turn on the TV to watch this "second team practice match." It can be judged by Loew’s substitutions in the game. Draxler and Rudiger, who replaced the rest in the 59th minute, have a high probability of continuing to start when they are away in Ukraine. Only they are the main players at this stage. The starters will sit back on the bench in the next game, and the two wingbacks Henriks and Schultz (and the substitutes Dahoud, Niklas Stark and Amiri) will not even follow. The team went to Kiev, because the UEFA Europa League only allowed 23 people to sign up for each game.
Matteus: Love has repeatedly lost victories
After the disastrous World Cup defeat in 2018, one of the important tasks of the German team is to win back the hearts of the fans. But two years later, the results were obviously disappointing. In the final analysis, the key factor in the popularity of the national team is the performance, especially the results in the biennial European Cup or the World Cup. With the European Cup being postponed for one year due to the epidemic, Loew once again said in the morning that he did not care about the results of the UEFA Nations League, so it was naturally harder to win back the fans' favor.
On the one hand, we must fully understand the difficulties of Loew and the German team. The team is already in the rebuilding period, and is limited by a series of objective conditions brought about by the epidemic. It happened that Bayern and Leipzig RB played so successfully in the UEFA Champions League in August, and the national team can only give way temporarily. . So last month, Loew simply let Neuer, Kimmich, Gnabry, Gorecka, Halstenberg and Klostermann, the six Bayern and Leipzig internationals rest. It also means that the German team has lost half of the main lineup, and the combat effectiveness is naturally greatly reduced.
But on the other hand, Love clearly has enough resources to let the team play better scenes and results. For example, against Spain and Switzerland last month, the German team played more and more conservatively after taking the lead until they were equalized by their opponents. In the game against Switzerland, the German team was even fortunate not to be reversed by their opponents. In the game against Turkey, the German team did not take the lead and was conservative until the 81st minute, relying on Waldschmidt's goal, to exceed the score for the third time. However, at the last moment, Loew committed the same old problem again, replacing the offensive Brandt with Hertha Berlin's midfielder or central defender Stek, which directly caused a stoppage time goal. It was precisely because Stark was dragged in the end that the offside failed, allowing Turkey's two substitute forwards Omir and Karaman to cooperate to complete the goal. And as soon as he came off the bench, Stark was cut off from the backcourt, allowing Karaman to kick the lintel.
After the game, Mateus criticized Loew repeatedly for substitutions for losing victories. Against Spain, Loew replaced Gentle, Serdar and Robin Koch, and removed Sane, Gundogan and Werner. In the end, only Draxler was left on the field. Became a true 541 without front. But with such an iron barrel formation, it was really ironic that Spain finished the buzzer with a high ball in the 96th minute. Against Switzerland, Loew successively replaced Jule and Goshen with Jonathan Ta and Emre-Can, and the more they changed, the more they were defensive, which caused the scene to lose control.
After the game against Turkey, Loew defended his substitutions, replacing Rudiger and Draxler and others because "We will re-use them on Saturday. Therefore, we also changed some positions. We played in the frontcourt. There are not many options, we don’t even have any strikers outside of Luka (Waldschmidt). So it’s a little difficult to change the frontcourt. And we have more defensive players on the bench."
Behind the disappointment, a lot has been gained
For another missed victory, Love is actually very angry, but he believes that the key to the problem lies in the team's repeated missed opportunities to expand the score advantage, and too easy to lose possession of the ball. Turkey's first two goals were due to the German team's backcourt loss. The first goal was a cross from Schultz to Draxler who was not in place and was intercepted. The second goal was when Neuhaus stopped the ball slightly off his foot and was intercepted by Carragja to form a single shot-even though the ball had a huge foul. Suspected, Emre-Can also received a yellow card for violently protesting to the referee.
Love said: "If you play 3-1, your opponent will not be able to catch up. You have to handle the ball better under pressure. We always simply concede the ball in simple circumstances. You have to catch the ball and protect it. The ball. If you can’t do this, you will naturally concede.” But Loew did not blame Neuhaus. Instead, he praised the Monchengladbach midfielder, who scored in his debut. “This is In his first game, he handled a lot of balls well, especially his goals. He played an excellent game."
In addition to Neuhaus, who scored in his debut, Benfica forward Waldschmidt, who represented the national team for the 4th time, finally opened his scoring account; Havertz, who has attracted attention due to a high price transfer to Chelsea, completed 2 wonderful times Assists; After the start of the new season, after starting for Paris Saint-Germain and scoring 2 goals, Draxler's form has clearly recovered, and he has scored for the national team after a lapse of 3 years; he was selected for the first time after the 2017 Confederations Cup and started The performance of Henriks as a right-wing guard was more convincing than Krell, who was defeated by injury. In fact, behind the disappointing results, the German team still gained a lot in this test match.
In addition to Neuhaus, Jonas Hoffman and Dahoud also came off the bench and completed their national team debut. Among them, Hoffman replaced Draxler and completed a very threatening left-sided attack after the appearance. Unfortunately, in the end, Brandt's shot angle was too straight to be blocked by the goalkeeper, otherwise the score would become 3-1. .
除了诺伊豪斯之外，乔纳斯·霍夫曼（Jonas Hoffman）和达胡德（Dahoud）也从板凳席上走出来，完成了他们的国家队首秀。其中，霍夫曼取代了德拉克斯勒，并在出场后完成了非常具有威胁性的左侧进攻。不幸的是，最后，勃兰特的射门角度太直，无法被门将挡住，否则比分变成3-1。 。
Hoffman's performance obviously won Loew's favor, and he became one of the 23 players who went to Ukraine. The 28-year-old "old rookie" is a winger, but in the past two seasons he has made breakthroughs in the midfield. Last season he even played almost all positions in front of the four-back defense line. Now he is playing as a left winger. The national team made its debut. The German team currently has a surplus of midfielders and fewer options for the wingers. Coupled with Sane's injury, Hoffman is expected to get a chance in the next two UEFA Europa League games.
However, compared to training new players in friendly matches, Loew, who is under pressure due to Lianping, clearly knows that the next two UEFA Europa League games must all score 6 points. "For the games against Ukraine and Switzerland, we have many plans. Obviously. , We are now going to score points in the European League. We hope to win again in order to repay our efforts."
