Germany lost 2-0 to England in their final Euro 2020 qualifying match at Wembley on Saturday. Thomas Muller missed a golden opportunity to give his side the lead before Raheem Sterling and Harry Kane scored for the hosts. The attacker admits he will remember the moment he squandered that might have changed the final outcome.
WHAT WAS THE DEAL?
Soon after Sterling’s 75th-minute opener, the England winger parted with the ball inexpensively in Germany’s half, which permitted Kai Havertz to break and play Muller through on objective.
The Bayern Munich striker looked bound to even out the scoreline as Jordan Pickford squinted first in the one-on-one fight by jumping to one side, however, Muller’s last shot flew only wide of the post to leave the away allies in dismay.
MULLER’S MESSAGE TO GERMANY FANS
Muller has now ended his quiet on the game in a post via web-based media, assuming full liability for the miss while yielding that the entire crew is harming after a particularly agonizing loss.
“THERE IT WAS, THAT ONE SECOND WHICH WILL STICK IN YOUR MEMORY, WHICH KEEPS YOU ALERT AROUND EVENING TIME,”
the Germany frontman composed on Instagram.
“That second you work, train, and live for as a football player. That second when it is dependent upon you to bring your group once again into a tight knockout match and convey satisfaction to an entire football country.
“It harms so terribly that I got the opportunity and I missed it. It harms the entire group, my colleagues, and our mentor who confided in me to be there.
“IN ANY CASE, IT HARMS THE MOST FOR ALL THE GERMAN FANS OUT THERE WHO UPHELD US AT THE EUROS NOTWITHSTANDING THE TROUBLESOME CONDITIONS.”
