Playing European Cup build-up: lost 2 games can also title the direct top 8
Although Germany team 2 WINS and 1 draw topped the group, but the former Germany Captain Lothar matthaus, Germany team is far from playing their strength, particularly worrying Muller.
In a TV interview recently, Matthaeus Germany team year commented: “despite the Germany team that won the group, but, in my opinion, the performance of the team does not convince. I hope the Germany team in the knockout stages with a better performance, you can determine is the Germany team still has a lot of growth potential. ”
Germany has always been defense, Matthaeus thought Germany defence at the current performance of the euro so far basically satisfactory “in addition to Ukraine beyond 15 minutes of the game, I for Germany are satisfied with the performance of the team on defense. “Germany group match three balls of the match is not lost in admiration.
But Germany’s strength to attack, Matthaeus was very disappointed, particularly for Thomas Mueller: “look at the Mueller and got Northern Ireland a chance, they shut my eyes when I was at Bayern Munich kicks in. “Mueller wasted a chance in the game, and still waiting for his first goal in the European Cup.
In addition, Matthaeus also believes that expansion of the European Cup game viewing and reduced level: “the European Cup level have fallen sharply, this is an error of Platini, because he was only doing so to get small and medium States voting by the Football Association. Two-thirds team can qualify, the tournament lost two teams still have a chance to compete for the Championship, it’s ridiculous. ”
In an interview, Matthaeus also proposed his own solution: “reservations 24 teams are also available, but should remove one-eighth final, 6 Group and 2 best second directly into the one-fourth final. So every game is very important, make sure the outlet, one cannot easily lose. ”
