At the start of the European Championship, Germany lost 1-0 to France.

Mats Hummels was the big unlucky fellow, but he doesn't want to be criticized by a former colleague.

Munich - Mats Hummels * was the unlucky person at the first European Championship appearance of the German national team *.

In the 0: 1 against France, the BVB defender decided the game with an own goal.

While he received immediate encouragement from his colleagues, the experts were not so gracious: Bastian Schweinsteiger, Hummels' world champion colleague from 2014 in Rio de Janeiro, called the rescue attempt on

ARD

* "wooden".

Hummels sees it differently.

Mats Hummels: "You have to differentiate between own goals"

In

an interview with

Bild

, Hummels said: “Basti as a former footballer should be better able to assess how difficult this ball is.

But as an expert he can of course express his opinion. "

Hummels explained the situation at the European Football Championship *: “You have to differentiate between own goals: There are some where you can do a lot - and some where you have few options.

The own goal against France wasn't one where I could have done a lot differently. "

The defender continued: “Every footballer knows: defending such a ball that is brought in extremely hard is extremely difficult.

During the game, three or four teammates came up to me and told me how difficult this ball was.

On a really good day, I might get it cleared up.

But for a central defender that was perhaps the most uncomfortable ball there is.

So I didn't have to be cheered up much. "

Hummels' son Ludwig cheered after his father's own goal

He “slept normally” after the game, even if the feeling was “generally not good”, since the tournament started with a defeat.

In contrast to Schweinsteiger and most Germans, a completely different "expert" in Hummels 'environment showed a completely different, albeit understandable, reaction to the EM * setback: Hummels' three and a half year old son Ludwig.

The DFB returnees about his son: “Fortunately, he still doesn't know what an own goal is.

He thinks: the ball in the net is always right.

I was told that he was cheering.

I'll probably have to teach him that. ”
