Germany - France: first defeat of the year for the Blues, the match summary

It's a feeling that the France team had forgotten. in a year 2023 crossing with serenity and insurance. Five matches for as many victories and not a single goal conceded. Then this solidity flew into pieces in the air barely more time than it took to lace up his crampons. Four minutes after kick-off, Gnabry crashed into the home team's side. left and served Henrichs in the area behind Pavard and Todibo, who were going to experience an ordeal during the first half hour. The full-back propelled a powerful cross in front of the 6 meters that Müller managed to reach. control before scoring his 44th goal for the selection with an unstoppable volley. In four minutes, Germany, presented as moribund and with confidence in tatters, had just broken the blue wall that was thought to be insurmountable.

A goal ô how symbolic because signed of an "unalterable" player, repositioned at the forefront of the attack by Rudi Völler, interim coach at good intuition, and rewarding a perfect start to the match from the locals. Indeed, at Dortmund, the Bavarian's teammates had decided to play to face the vice-world champions with their heads held high and to put pressure on them. A high block, sharp runs and a desire to win. to hurt. Germany immediately marked its territory, in a striking contrast with the visitors, who remained in the locker room. Rarely, in recent times, the Blues have offered; such a service. Certainly, Didier Deschamps had proceeded to à numerous changes, more or less constrained, but these could not explain the porosity; of the right defensive flank where Pavard and Todibo were overtaken at the end of the race. each opposing movement, or the feverishness of technique and the absence of a bond between the players.
