Striker Lukas Nmecha, who had previously scored in both games, scored a penalty on the inside post.

So Germany had to tremble until the end.

The German team tries with the last of their strengths to keep the ball away from their own goal and it has worked quite well so far.

Will the Romanians come up again?

91st Minute:

Pieper heads the thing on the bar!

Raum hits a free kick from a half-right position and the Bielefeld prevails in the aerial duel, but the luck in the end is missing.

85th minute:

That was tight!

Dorsch spits the ball away in his own penalty area, the Romanian drops and tries to snatch the penalty.

Fortunately, the referee does not fall for the clumsy attempt.

82nd Minute:

Kuntz brings a fresh man again.

Ismail Jakobs replaces Ridle Baku in the closing stages.

80th Minute:

The German team now has to bite their teeth, the tournament was tough.

The man from Mainz flaps the leather, but Vlad fishes him out of the far corner.

The Romanians can clear the corner.

Update from March 30th, 5:50 p.m.:

In the storm, the hopes of the German U21 national team rest on Lukas Nmecha again today.

The attacker from RSC Anderlecht scored the first German goal on the first two match days.

The 22-year-old from Hamburg is thus building on his achievements from Belgium.

Nmecha scored 16 times in 32 competitive games for Anderlecht this season.

According to ProSieben expert René Adler, Nmecha can even hope that national coach Jogi Löw will be appointed to the World Cup squad.

In the storm center, the DFB-Elf is known not to be blessed with a classic clipper.

“The team knows that you make mistakes at this age.

The reaction proves our team spirit.

We said that we wouldn't take it out after a mistake. "

Update from March 30th, 5:20 p.m.:

Now there is finally certainty that Youssoufa Moukoko will have to postpone his debut as the youngest U21 player.

The Borussia Dortmund striker is still suffering from a bruised shin.

In between it was even considered to send him back to Dortmund prematurely, but this plan was discarded.

“We had considered whether it would make sense to send him home,” reveals Kuntz: “But here he is given all-day care.

In consultation with Sebastian Kehl, it makes sense that he is with us.

So we can integrate it even more.

This is how he gets to know how the U21s work. ”Should the German U21s make the quarter-finals clear today, Moukoko could make a new attempt at the end of May.

In addition, some professionals from the team from 2019 - including Ianis Hagi, son of the former world star Gheorghe Hagi - are now part of the A-Team.

U21 European Championship: Germany against Romania in the live ticker - despite goalkeeping mistake!

Kuntz relies on Dahmen

Update from March 30th, 4:50 p.m.:

The line-up of the German U21 national team is here!

As before, coach Stefan Kuntz made two changes in the 1-1 draw against the Netherlands.

The Fürth David Raum is returning to the starting line-up for Ismail Jakobs from Cologne as a left-back.

In addition, the Stuttgart Mateo Klimowicz gets a chance right from the start after two joker appearances and, with Salih Özcan, displaces another Cologne man on the bench.

Jonathan Burkardt, goal preparer against Holland, is again only available as a joker.

The man from Mainz is still suffering from adductor problems.

In goal, Kuntz continues to trust goalkeeper Finn Dahmen despite the mistake against Holland.

There was then a lot of encouragement from the team for Mainz, who was 23 years old on Saturday.

"The team's reaction was cool," said Kuntz, who confirmed in advance that Dahmen will also be in goal against Romania.

The goalkeeper “put away well” his mistake and the excitement about it, reported Kuntz.

“We have an incredible team spirit.

Everyone stands by everyone and saves your ass.

This time it was my turn, maybe next time I can help the team, ”said Dahmen before the game.

U21 EM: Germany against Romania in the live ticker - Dorsch ignores order from "beer captain"

Update from March 30th, 4:10 p.m.:

In just under two hours, the German U21 national team is going to their group final against Romania.

At least one point is required and the young DFB team can celebrate.

But to which music?

The two bosses in midfield argue about this: Arne Maier and Niklas Dorsch.

Captain Maier made an announcement before the tournament: “I can say 100 percent that the beer captain will also run at this European championship.” Two years ago at the last World Cup, the U21s got in the mood with the Ballermann hit “Bierkapitän” and came until the final.

The song should bring luck again this time, but Maier did the math without cod.

The ex-Bayern player was elected cabin DJ by the team and refused to give the captain's order.

“I put it to a vote.

There is no majority for the song.

So I refuse to play the song! ”Explains Dorsch.

Instead, he prefers to play rock music, preferably from the US band Linkin Park.

The Gent professional thinks little of Ballermann-Mucke.

“I have a good mix, the boys are all satisfied,” emphasizes the cabin DJ and reveals: “I like something harder, more rocky.” As long as Dorsch and Maier harmonize on the pitch, they should both be able to choose music to agree.

U21 EM: Germany against Romania in the live ticker - Kuntz trembles in front of the Holland coach

Update from March 30th, 2 p.m

.: The German U21 national team is enough today against Romania to get into the quarter-finals.

Group opponents Netherlands, however, must tremble.

If the Dutch win their game against Hungary, they would have five points, just like Germany and Romania in a draw.

Bitter for Holland: If Germany and Romania play a draw with at least two goals each, the Netherlands are eliminated, no matter how high they win against Hungary.

In the event of a tie, the direct comparison between the respective teams decides and then Holland would have scored fewer goals.

Dutch coach Erwin van de Looi is worried about this and threatened his German colleague Stefan Kuntz.

"Erwin told me that if we tie with two or more goals, he'll come to Germany and kill me,"

said the German U21 national coach with a wink.

U21 EM: Germany against Romania in the live ticker - is there a strange scenario?

“Erwin and I are very personable.

But we focus on ourselves.

Our first goal is to win, and then I think Erwin would be happy too, ”said Kuntz with a smile, who also knows his Dutch coaching colleague from joint training courses.

Instead of the twinkling threat, Kuntz has other plans in mind: 

"He's bigger than me, so I think it's nicer if I invite him to Germany after the game and we drink coffee together,"

said the 58-year-old.

In the past, there was a non-aggression pact in connection with the DFB team.

At the 1982 World Cup, Germany beat Austria 1-0, and the result was enough for neighboring countries to advance.

Both teams just pushed the balls back and forth - the shame of Gijon was born.

Algeria suffered and was kicked out of the tournament.

Hopefully history will not repeat itself today at the U21 European Championship.

Preliminary report

: Budapest - The German U21 national team will face Romania at the end of the group stage.

League leaders Germany a draw is enough to make the quarter-finals perfect.

But the starting position is deceptive: If the team loses, they will end prematurely if the Netherlands win a parallel game against co-hosts Hungary.

U21 EM: Germany against Romania in the live ticker - Matthäus gives the decisive tip

Not much is missing: a draw against Romania on Tuesday in Budapest is enough to reach the first stage goal.

"Then we would only have knockout games at the top level ahead of us, that would be sensational for me," said U21 coach Stefan Kuntz *, who has moved with the DFB * team from the previous venue Szekesfehervar to the Hungarian capital.

The team lives there in the chic “Anantara New York Palace” hotel - a recommendation from “Hungary insider and tipster Lothar Matthäus *”, as Kuntz revealed.

Matthäus has lived in Budapest for many years, coached the Hungarian national team in 2004 and 2005 and even celebrated a win against Germany.

Now he is being traded as a possible successor to national coach Jogi Löw - just like Kuntz.

However, Kuntz should have the better cards.

Especially when he reaches the knockout round of a European Championship for the third time in a row with the U21s, despite all the problems in the German youth sector.

It would be the next letter of application in the direction of the DFB, even if Kuntz continues to keep a low profile.

After the EM “there is still enough time to discuss things,” said Kuntz last.

U21 EM: Germany against Romania in the live ticker - Kuntz is reminiscent of strong Romanians

Because first the duty must be fulfilled against the uncomfortable Romanians.

Although a German U21 has never lost to Romania in eight matches, Kuntz still has bad memories of the last duel.

In the second place in the European Championship in 2019, Kuntz's eleven defeated the Romanians in the semifinals, whose senior national team lost 0: 1 to the German national team on Sunday, thanks to two late goals with 4: 2.

“Nobody knew the Romanians back then, and then we were almost eliminated.

They bring a lot of quality and, above all, mentality to the pitch, ”said the DFB coach.

The 58-year-old also stressed that the Dutch had "had a hard time" at the 1-1 start of the group stage against Romania.

U21 EM: Germany against Romania in the live ticker - Moukoko use on the brink

The fact that one point is enough for the ticket to the knockout phase does not change the approach for Kuntz.

"We can't say now that we can play Romania backwards," said the national coach.

“We have to give it 100 percent again.” Whether Dortmund's striker Youssoufa Moukoko would be able to help for the first time after his bruised shin was initially still open.

With a win, the DFB selection would also have first place in the group and thus the possibly easier opponent in the quarter-finals, which will be played on May 31st.

But the team doesn't think about that.

“Sooner or later there will be good opponents anyway.

That's why we really don't care, ”said Mainz's Jonathan Burkardt, who was the last goal preparer for Lukas Nmecha's important 1-1 draw against the Netherlands.

Denmark, France or Russia are the possible German opponents in the event of progress.
