World Cup winner, Germany started their Euro 2016 adventure in the best possible fashion after defeating Ukraine 2-0 with goals coming from Shkodran Mustafi and Bastian Schweinstieger.
That result was satisfying enough for Der Panzer’s head coach, Joachim Loew who praised his team’s performance especially in the second half where they were able to take control of things much better than the first 45 minutes.
Loew admitted that it was not an easy game, especially in the first period where Ukraine cost many problems for German’s defense.
However, after the break Loew’s men were able to handle their opposition well and eventually killing of that tie with Schweinsteiger late finish after previously taking the lead in the first half via Mustafi’s header.
Loew is now looking forward for their next group game, which will be another tricky one as they are facing Poland, that also won their opening fixture against Norther Ireland.
