Clear words from Joshua Kimmich (27)!
At the start of the new Nations League season, the DFB team in Bologna only managed a 1-1 draw against Italy. A disappointing result for goal scorer Kimmich (73rd minute), and after the game he speaks plainly.
The Bayern professional on “RTL”: “Regardless of whether it deserves or not. It’s not enough for us. We wanted to win today. We knew Italy was changing, so we wanted to win here. We didn’t succeed.”
Next: “We didn’t manage to put our performance on the pitch. Maybe it was also due to the humidity, which we weren’t used to.”
Under Hansi Flick (57), the team remains unbeaten in their tenth game as national coach (eight wins, two draws). But after the 1-1 draw with Holland he’s playing against a big opponent for the second time and he can’t win again.
The DFB team has the next chance to do so on Tuesday against England. Kimmich: “I wish that we win, get more intensity on the pitch and don’t make so many simple mistakes. And play a little more purposefully going forward.”
