Germany continued their journey of making it into the next rounds of the 2016 Euro’s after claiming a 2-0 victory over Georgia and now the German side is positioned in the 2nd spot of Group D as they have secured 10 points from 5 matches.
Poland still remains in the top spot with 11 points and Scotland has the same amount of points as Germany with 10.
This group is without doubt one of the most competitive and tightly contested ones out of all the 2016 Euro’s and even though Germany are the favorites on making it through, they have to continue getting more victories and snatching more points in order to their hopes alive as any slip up could be enough for the other teams to step it up and snatch the qualification spots into the approaching tournament which is going to be held in France.
Bastian Schweinsteiger is the captain of the German national side and even though he was happy to see his team claim a 2-0 victory over Georgia, the German midfielder stated that they still need to improve.
The 30 year old midfielder spoke after the match was over and he told reporters: “We kept a clean sheet, which was our aim, but it was difficult to find space against them. We made a few mistakes in their half, but we won the game anyway. We need to improve and will now concentrate on the games against Gibraltar and Scotland.”
Thomas Muller was another player of the German side who gave his opinion about their recent victory as he also said that they need to get even better.
Bayern Munich’s Thomas Muller said: “I was happy with how we played in the first half. We combined well and looked dangerous. After the break we were a bit sloppy and made a few mistakes. Georgia stayed deep and made it difficult for us.”
The truth of the matter is that Germany has not been playing at their best ever since they won the 2014 World Cup. The German side was claimed as the champions of the world as they made it past all of their opponents with relative ease during the international competition which concluded a few months but ever since it reached it’s end, Joachim Low and his players have not been able to continue playing at that same high level and have even suffered losses against Scotland and Poland.
