Germany’s bad run in international football continue as Joachim Loew’s men found themselves relegated from UEFA Nations League competition following Netherlands’ surprising 2-0 win over France.
Already sitting bottom of that three teams’ group, it was a rather inevitable outcome for Die Mannschaft as they suffered two defeats and one draw in their previous three matches.
Nevertheless, it did took another excellent display from Netherlands to confirm Germany’s disappointing fate in that tournament and Ronald Koeman’s men once again showed their renaissance after their failure to even go to World Cup finals in Russia.
Not considered as a competitive rivals for both France and Die Mannschaft, Koeman’s boys showed that they are ready to compete again with the big boys in international football.
Facing the raining World Cup 2018 winner, Netherlands looked sharp and motivated since kick off as they put on an aggressive approach from the first minutes.
However, it wasn’t until the 44th minute before the home side got themselves in front thanks to Georginio Wijnaldum’s finish that gave his team a slender lead as they go into half time break.
Things got more exciting after the break as Les Blues were keen on getting themselves back on level terms, however it was Netherlands that eventually coming away with all three points thanks to Memphis Depay’s late spot kick that made it 2-0.
That victory from Koeman’s men certainly made things much more interesting as now they have a chance in getting into Nations League finals if they grab a victory on their final group game against Germany.
