Football: cold shower for Germany, beaten in a friendly in Austria (2-0) seven months before its Euro 2024

New disillusionment for the Mannschaft, which changed coach but failed to change its results. Reduced to ten for forty minutes, Germany fell on Tuesday evening in Austria, beaten 2-0, continuing its descent into hell with a sixth setback in eleven matches played in 2023. Something to worry about seven months before Euro 2024 in residence.

The Austrians, qualified for the Euro, scored through Borussia Dortmund midfielder Marcel Sabitzer (29th) and RB Leipzig striker Christoph Baumgartner (73rd).

Julian Nagelsmann’s players, inducted in September, played ten against eleven after the exclusion of Bayern striker Leroy SanĂ© in the 49th minute, for a bad mood gesture against Austrian left-back Philipp Mwene. This is the first red card for SanĂ© in his career, in more than 400 matches at the age of 27.

The Germans thus end a catastrophic year 2023 with six defeats for only three victories (against Peru, France and the United States) and two draws against Ukraine and Mexico. This is the worst calendar year for the Mannschaft since 1964. Germany, which organizes Euro-2024 (June 14-July 14), with an opening match in Munich, will know its opponents on December 2 during the draw at the Elbphilharmonie in Hamburg.
