Germany defeats France: Three Rudi Völler – Sport

It took five minutes for Rudi Völler to find out his name again. “Rudi Völler!” the people in Dortmund shouted, exclamation marks included, and again and again: “Rudi Völler!” This was probably the second moment of this international football match against France, which was extremely painful for the sacked national coach Hansi Flick; the first moment had happened a minute earlier. Ilkay Gündogan had lost the ball, but then he fought back and pushed it to Emre Can. And then a move developed that sparked a bitter debate among historians: Was it the best move since the 2014 World Cup or perhaps since 1972, when the supposedly best German national team in history played? Emre Can’s heel appeared in this move, later Leroy Sané’s heel, at some point the ball was outside on the left to Benjamin Henrichs, who inspired Serge Gnabry to do a one-two and then crossed to Thomas Müller.
