Why Ikay Gundogan Was Unhappy With His Germany Teammates After Their Loss To Japan
Manchester City midfielder Ikay Gundogan blasted his Germany Teammates following their shock defeat to Japan in their World Cup opener. It was an humiliating defeat for Germany because they were expected to secure a win in the match.
Gundogan put Germany ahead of Japan in the 33rd minute. However, Doan and Asano helped their side make a comeback win against Germany and the game ended 2-1.
Ikay Gundogan said “We made it too easy for Japan. The second goal in particular, that shouldn’t happen, we’re at the World Cup.
‘Manu [Manuel Neuer] saved us a few times. We had incredible chances to score but didn’t make it 2-0. That must not happen to us.
‘We also didn’t build up the play well from the back. The conviction to hold the ball from the back and offer yourself was missing – so we played long balls.
‘You almost got the feeling that not everyone wanted the ball. We simply lost the ball way too often’.
Germany will play against Spain in their next group match. Spain thrashed Costa Rica 7-0 in their opening game thanks to goals from Ferran Torres, Dani Olmo, Gavi, Soler, Alvaro Morata and Asensio.
