The German national soccer team is fun again.

After the 4-2 win against Portugal, the fans even felt something like euphoria.

First fan: »Yes, wonderful.

It doesn't get any better than that.

It was clear anyway, actually, against Portugal.

Was clear.

Even if two own goals were scored - it was still deserved. "

Second fan: »After some initial difficulties, yes.

But it was extremely important so that you can still make it to the tournament.

Now let's hope it continues like this. "

Third fan: “That was so cool because we were hoping that Germany would win.


With the enthusiastic appearance of the team in the victory against the Portuguese, national coach Joachim Löw silenced his critics for the time being.

Apparently he found the right words after the defeat in the opening game against France.

Original sound Joachim Löw national coach

“I think it was a very strong game on our part against technically and counter-strong Portuguese.

But we showed a lot of morale today, especially after falling behind, and we showed a really good spirit.

We haven't lost the thread and the calm after the 0: 1.

And keep the momentum going well in this game.

We created a lot of good opportunities and we had a very good pace in our game.

And they overtaxed the Portuguese a few times on the defensive too. "

Despite criticism, Löw stayed in a back three in defense.

The plan worked.

Germany acted powerfully and courageously.

The two wingers Robin Gosens and Joshua Kimmich permanently caused a goal threat.

“They both did super well.

Sure, Kimmich and Gosens preparing for the goal.

But also Robin Gosens in his graduation.

You know that he has strengths when he's in the opponent's sixteen.

That was an important aspect today to put that pressure on. "

The German fans among the 14,500 spectators in the Munich arena went home happy.

The atmosphere during the game was impressive.

The evening was clouded by the ignorance of thousands of fans in the stadium: They cheered and sang at the top without the mandatory FFP2 masks on their faces.

The Bavarian Ministry of Health therefore asked the DFB on Saturday evening to consistently enforce the mask rule.
