Olympia 2021: Germany – Ivory Coast – End for our footballers

What a Olympia-Blamage for our footballers!

Germany creates on Wednesday in Soccer-Group final against Ivory Coast only a 1: 1, thus flying out of the tournament. Max Kruse (33) and Co. had last from the goldmedal spoken…

Previously, the DFB team lost 4-2 to Brazil and only scored a 3-2 triumph over Saudi Arabia.

The embarrassing Germany out saw around 6000 spectators in the Miyagi Stadium in Rifu (up to 10,000 were allowed).

Annoying: The Kuntz-Elf was far too negligent with top scoring chances – especially in the first half!

8th minute: Kruse crosses from the left to birthday child Ragnar Ache (23), who heads just over the box from a few meters.

10th minute: Another good chance. David Raum (23) refueled on the left, lays the ball on the edge of the penalty area for Marco Richter, whose shot is blocked at the last moment.

11. Minute: After a Kruse pass, Marco Richter comes free from around 14 meters to the end. Keeper Ira can clear the corner at the last second.

25th minute: The huge chance to lead and again Kruse is involved. A cross from the Union star from the left lands exactly on the head of Frankfurt striker Ache. The ball hits the bar!

Instead of a goal, captain Maximilian Arnold (27) could almost have been sent off again in the 43rd minute. The already warned Wolfsburg hit Christian Kouame clearly on the foot. For Arnold it would have been the second dismissal in the group stage. Kuntz reacted and brought Eduard Löwen (24) after half-time.

Then the shock in the 67th minute: After a long throw-in from the right by Wilfried Singo, the assignment in the defense is not correct at all. Slightly deflected by Kouame, the ball slips into the five, where Benjamin Henrichs and Felix Uduokhai try to tackle the ball in front of Youssouf Dao. The action goes wrong, in the end the ball rolls past goalkeeper Florian Müller into the goal. Bitter: Henrichs was last on the ball …

In the 73rd minute, Germany equalized with a dream free kick from Löwen! But that doesn’t change anything at the end of the Olympics …

Maybe it was Kuntz’s last game as a U21 coach. He recently said about his future: “After the Olympics, I’ll put my thoughts in order and let everything work on me. It’s also about asking what the next logical step is for me. Is it where I am already, do I still appreciate it and is that what I would like to continue doing? Or do I need a new challenge, is the new year, for example, enough of a challenge? And I also have to think again about what I have in the job I’m doing now and what I would give up if I did something else. “
