Z her Kick Germany struggles with Flicks debut to victory

The Scandinavian flick, Finnish flick, pendulum turn, or Scandi flick is a strategy utilized primarily in ice racing and rallying. The strategy generates oversteer utilizing weight transfer to lug an automobile via a turn while all at once reducing speed.

It should be the beginning of a new era: many hopes rest at the DFB on Hansi Flick, who initiated the succession of Joachim Löw after the EM in the summer. Without a long start-up time, it was going on for the new man at the helm with a lighting game – although the task of Liechtenstein should not become a stumbling stone. With some personnel decisions surprised Flick right to the start, so Kehrer, Baku and Musiala stood in the starting eleven, also Sané and Werner. The gate guarded Leno in the absence of Captain Neuer, who had a break due to an ankle blessing.

The newly formed DFB-EC eleven sent itself to ensure clear conditions quickly. The extremely profound Liechtensteiners were allowed to thank the initial minutes twice at Torwart Büchel, who only strongly parried against Kimmich (4.) and then against Werner (7th). Both times it was the German elf managed to penetrate to the baseline and to give them flat in the middle – a recipe for success, which was no longer applied.

Because after a temporal start it quickly became calmer in the German offensive game, too often it went across or with the head through the wall. So the Liechtensteiner did not have too much trouble to successfully barricadate their own penalty area. Not much fell to favorites, the spacers lacked it as well as precision such as the occasionally scattered flanks from the half-field. Only once was so danger, Gosens headed a Kimmich flank to the left outside posts (19th).

Werner redeems increasingly subtle DFB team

The left-part was also, which had just 20 minutes later the next significant opportunity when he headed Bakus flank from a short distance over the crossbeam. Almost would be Liechtenstein the coup succeeded in breaking with a 0-0 – but Werner still redeemed his colleagues: After a strong introduction of Musiala tunneled by the Chelsea striker Torwart Büchel from a short distance, with the scarce leadership it went into the Cabins.

After the break, nothing changed on action. If any, Germany did even heavier than before. Only in the 58th minute Liechtenstein’s goalkeeper Bühler had to rise again, he thwarted a double opportunity of Gosens and Gündogan. Flick responded, brought Reus, Hofmann, Gnabry and Goretzka. However, a real increase was no longer observing, even if a few chances of chances were now. Sané headed just over (64.), then Gosens shot was blocked just before the goal line (68.).

Also Joker Reus approached a tight shot shortly thereafter, which was just blocked (73.). A fine single action from Sané in the 78th minute got the calming 2: 0, but it was a sporty view. Shortly before the conclusion Leverkusens Wirtz got his first minutes in the a national team, then was over. The three points stand on the have page – but the new German eleven did not really have the new German eleven.
