So another draw and apparently one that seems to belittle the dream of the German national soccer team winning the World Cup this year. In any case, after the 1-1 draw in Budapest, Hansi Flick’s team was heavily criticized by the ranks of observers, starting with Lothar Matthäus. Looking only at the most recent game, that was certainly not unjustified.

The hesitant Germans didn’t manage to impose their game on a middle-class opponent. However, if you look at the German table in the Nations League, they are not alone in their group of ties. A victory on Tuesday in the last game against Italy before the summer break would put the DFB team in first place. And what does that mean, can Germany become world champions again? Of course it doesn’t mean anything because it’s only June.

In other words, it might even be a good thing that weak points are now opening up. Because Hansi Flick sees the mistakes, still has time to correct them and find his team and the best system. In November he must be able to show what he can do with the team in a tournament. The national coach will no longer be measured against the 1-1 series from the summer and the game in Budapest or the game against Italy on Tuesday.
